Open Carry: Gaining Respect

"For years, Kevin Jensen carried a pistol everywhere he went, tucked in a shoulder holster beneath his clothes. In hot weather the holster was almost unbearable. Pressed against his skin, the firearm was heavy and uncomfortable. Hiding the weapon made Jensen feel like a criminal.

"Then one evening he stumbled across a site that urged gun owners to do something revolutionary: Carry your gun openly for the world to see as you go about your business. In many states there's no law against that."

Including Ohio, where there are some 100+ law enforcement officers currently taking remedial training on the subject due to some "incidents."

Anyway, read the full story in the Chicago Tribune. A pretty good read.
