Which is fucked up beyond all fucked-up fuckery, in my humble opinion.

It ain't libel if it's true.
Here's the thing: I personally despise guns. I fear them, and I hate the power they hold to destroy innocent people and animals. But concealed carry has been legal in Texas since 1995, and although I'm not thrilled with it, if law-abiding citizens are concerned with their personal safety and are willing to go through the vetting process to keep a weapon discreetly and invisibly on their person, I will give those citizens the benefit of the doubt that their motives are pure and their intentions good.
But I draw a line at people who feel the need to show off their armed status to everyone around them. Openly carrying guns (whether it's long arms, which have been legal due to a loophole, or handguns, which will become legal as of January 1st, 2016) serves but one purpose, I believe, and that is to compensate for a tiny penis.
Yes, women, too.

I get that if you're a chinbeard, untucked t-shirt, trilby-wearing, redneck Christian nobody, carrying a gun for all to see might give you a .01% boost in self-worth. And you need that boost, no doubt. But if you truly were Christian, you would be loath to inspire fear and aversion in others. And if you truly were American, you would feel no need to publicly display a killing machine to feel equal (or superior) to your fellow citizens.
Or maybe I'm completely wrong, and we all should be telling each other that God is love, but I could totally fucking blow your head off at any moment if you looked at me wrong.
It's a gray area.
Anyway, open carry of handguns goes into effect in Texas on January 1st. If I see someone with a gun at Target or City Hall or my local dollar store, I have no 14th-amendment due-process right to report that person as a possible threat. Hey, all the San Bernadino shooters were doing was exercising their Second Amendment rights, correct? No cause for alarm when they ran into a public building armed with assault rifles. 'Murica.
While I didn't vote for any state representative who voted this idiotic practice into law, I'm not entirely voiceless when open carry goes into effect. I have just now, tonight, ordered a box of business cards that I will carry on my person and will leave with any Texan I see openly carrying a death-gun:
I'll leave it on their windshield, or hand it to them personally. Doesn't matter, as long as the message is delivered. I can think of no reason to insist that Texas return to Wild West days, when every good guy/bad guy/random creep showed off his/her gun to the world.
This will cost me maybe 40 bucks. I hope it also gets me a shit-ton of notoriety. Bring it. My guess is that I can make my argument much more eloquently than you can bring yours, Kory and C.J. and all you other tiny-weinered Second Amendment apologists.
Happy New Year, you bloodthirsty fuckwads.
