I was just thinking about this book earlier today! And thinking, how on earth could anyone not find people openly carrying guns scary as fork? And why on earth would they feel the need to openly carry guns? What are they imagining is going to happen? The entire thing is just forking weird.

People open carry in my state pretty regularly. We have some of the most permissive gun laws in America. Although it doesn't scare me, it is very strange to be picking out a tomato next to an armed man. Or choosing a mother's day card in between a couple who are both open carrying. I'm always curious what sort of hero scenarios they have going on in their minds when they strap on in the morning.

It's one of those little things that is just so different culturally between Australia and the US, so I think it's always really difficult for me to understand. I appreciate the perspective! Here, I can't imagine anyone open carrying (not that it's legal anyway)... There's a very different culture around guns, and whilst some people totally have them because they want them for self-defence or whatever, the main reason I'd imagine people would keep guns is because they're farmers or cops.

It's different in different parts of the US, too. In the area where I grew up, I can't imagine anyone open carrying. I never heard anybody other than police officers even mention owning a gun. Where I live now, guns are a whole lot more common, and it's been really weird for me, and I'm still not used to it after living here for five years.

Yeah, I have lived in the US for 37 years and have never seen anyone open carry outside of law enforcement. I have known a couple of people peripherally who carry concealed regularly for whatever kooky reason. I don't know what my state's laws are about open carrying but I doubt it's legal here and it's so far from being part of the culture in Seattle that I would also have a hard time getting used to seeing it if I moved to a different part of the country where it actually happens.

Edit: huh, turns out open carry is legal in WA without a license but you have to have a concealed carry license to carry a handgun in your car. I guess that underscores how much it's not a normal part of Seattle's culture that it's apparently allowed here yet not regularly done. (Maybe there is a city ordinance?)

every once in a while i wonder if moving to Bananaland was a mistake. Then I read something like this that reminds me no, no it wasn't.

(i lived in an open carry place for a while and I found it extremely disconcerting to have to try to convince myself [for my own sanity] that all those gun-totin folks were well-intentioned, because I was basically at their mercy. The only way it works, the way I saw it, is if everyone is armed. And that is not a place where i want to live.)

also, the first 10 posts or so almost made me choke on my lunch. awesome.

In NJ, where I grew up, I'm pretty sure that the only place you're allowed to buy guns is at special gun stores. In PA, where I live now, you can buy guns at sporting goods stores, next to the camping and fishing equipment. (OK, just looked up the NJ laws, and they don't explicitly say that only gun stores can sell guns, but they make it so that it would be pretty difficult to sell guns in a store that also sold a lot of other things.) Where I live now, there's a gun store right around the corner from me, in the middle of a cute little old-fashioned downtown shopping area. The gun store also sells used video games.

Yes but let's be fair, in PA you can also buy rattlesnakes, salmonella-infested turtles, fireworks, and probably squirrels for pants gambling. (and guns in the walmart.)

Yeah, I've never seen anyone one other than law enforcement officers open carrying guns in my whole life. I just haven't lived in any areas that are particularly gun-crazy, even though it's been legal in some of the counties/states I've lived in.

That said, there's a house down the block from me that has a NRA (National Rifle Association) sticker on their front door. And for some reason, my 2 year old daughter is always really interested in the plants they have on their front stoop, so she has tried to run up their front stairs multiple times. And it really freaks me out. Gah.

I'm just spitballing here, but they're probably the types of people who are far more frightened by the thought of an unarmed black man than of an armed white one.

I'm amused by the reviews this book has on Amazon. Less amused by the freaky eyeballs this family all has, and the fact that all three of them have mouths just a tiny bit skewed to the right of their faces.

Please, don't misunderstand my post! I grew up in a much different area of the country, so open carry is still a surprise to me every time.

Yeah. Although I do know a lot of folks in NJ who own guns. Like, a lot. Which freaks me out even more, because I feel like people might out themselves more easily where having guns is more normalized and I wouldn't have to freak out about potentially being in a home with a gun unwittingly.
