    Good video. I don’t know what method of open carry this man chose to exercise, and I suppose there may be some open carry situations and methods which are strategic/appropriate. But I have a real problem with yahoos who strap on an AR15 and grab a video camera and parade up and down the street, solely and purposefully seeking pubic and police attention. The rifle is a political prop, not a self-defense tool, in these situations. These antics give the rest of us gun owners a bad image and fuel the fire of the anti-gunners. Occasionally I watch one of these videos on YouTube and I cringe at the attitude these folks display to the police officers.
