I appreciate him doing it, as I do other advocates for 2nd amendment rights. I just don't think it makes a difference. There's a very large group who could give a crap less about us and our "rights" to own and/or carry and/or use firearms, regardless. Revolutionary/civil war, putting bullets in, hanging, clubbing to death, setting on fire, tearing them apart, so there's no longer anyone to argue about it is the only way that will really save our true freedom at this point.

I'm glad he chose to carry it. Here is a quote off that same article.

“You’ll find no person who’s a bigger fan of all the constitutional amendments than me because I am,” said Gerald Treece, a professor at the South Texas College of Law. “But all constitutional rights are subject to some limitations. The ability to take a firearm any place you want by simply citing the 2nd Amendment simply is illogical because all constitutional rights are subject to limitations.”

it's because of dumbasses like this that we need to continue to exercise all of our constitutional rights and educate those around us.

There are a lot of things I can do but do not. I think in Texas it matters little. There are many with dormant attitudes that likely will have the knee-jerk reaction that it should not be permitted. It just seems more like grandstanding than an exercise of second amendment rights.

I do not care for fellow Christians that wear their religion on their cuff. I do not care for fellow gun right advocators that are equally in your face with their machismo.

Gotta agree with Palmetto Tree. That was a little brazen to just carry an AR15 in a place like that. And it might just put us gun lovers in a bad light. It is bad enough as it is.

I don't know what Jesus would do - but I know that i will carry my gun when and how I see fit. If I have to use it I will forgive the bastard after I shoot his ass.

Sure it does. Our cause needs people to understand that simply having a gun does not threaten anyone. None of those shown seem like a threat to me.

Big supporter of reasonable carry laws but this does not help our cause.

this people carry their weapons because they feel their rights are being infringed upon. I bet you if the govt says that all law abiding citizens can now open carry and not be bothered by the police, this will all stop. you will see fewer people carry. hell, gun sales will surely drop. Kinda like when all is well, people did not buy guns or ammo. but now, they are buying both like its going out of style. but this practice where one or two persons carry in the open will not do much. I would like to see big groups of people open carry in front of their state house, then take the march all the way to DC. of course this has to be video documented so that there would not be any instigators to screw it up.

That is more than just retarded, it is asking for trouble. It would serve the pastor (and the tard in that picture) right if a concerned citizen grabbed that slung rifle, tossed him about like the idiot he is, and put him on the ground.

Rifles are offensive weapons. The 709 Slim that nobody saw me carrying all day long is a defensive weapon. Nobody sees it, it isn't out for someone to grab and it can't be used as a leverage point like that slung rifle could be.

More than simply idiotic.

Want to make a point? Open carry a sidearm.

My only concern with open carry is some meth head seeing the weapon and grabbing it off you to commit a crime! Yeah, if you've got a rifle slinged over your shoulder I'll about promise as you walk through the store the opportunity will present where Sir Smokesalot can take it from you. Same goes for open carry with any pistol.

If their concealed and meth heads don't know you have them, not much chance of them being used against you.

STILL, I think we SHOULD have the right to carry however we see fit!

Paul when the SHTF you will likely be the among the first to die. Your attitude makes you a planed target. I'm a stand your ground guy also but I'm not advertising for challengers.

I agree, this type of showing does help at all. I am very sure I could take the firearm away from her before she knew what was going on. Then hit her in the face with the butt and shoot her boyfriend or husband before he could every get around to use it. Just crazy.

I'm not gonna say that the pastor was right or wrong in what he did. As far as Texas law goes he was well within his rights to carry his firearm in the manner he had it in. The law states that open carry of a long rifle ( whether its a hunting rifle, AR, or even a shotgun) is permitted as long as its not being carried or displayed in a threatening manner. Will I sling my AR on my back and walk into Wally world? No. But I'm not gonna tell anyone else that they can't just because I don't plan to. The man was trying to prove a point and didnt violate any laws doing it and when asked to leave a public business while exercising his right to do so turned and walked out. Noone was injured or in any danger of what he was doing. I actually have been to that Walmart and the other businesses he entered plenty if times and the "methheads" arent too plentiful around that area. Plenty of potheads but I don't think they would be too concerned about a Machine gun preacher!:)

Depends on why she's doing it if she's seeking attention she got it what a dweeb. If she just doesn't want to leave it in the truck so we end up with another loser running around with a stolen gun good for her. Yes it's our right to open carry and there are times to do so, but simply because you have a right to do something doesn't mean you always should.

You have no idea what "my attitude" is apart from this board. I carry concealed all the time and nobody knows it - not even my wife most of the time. As for being the first one to die - only God knows for sure and I put little faith in your ability to know the future.
