Interesting from the standpoint that he isn't a hardcore 2A guy and has a mindset similar to what you would expect in CA.

"So I just want to be clear," I asked MARTA (Public transit system)police Chief Wanda Dunham. "If I had a turkey sandwich in one hand and a gun in the other hand, MARTA police would ticket me for the turkey sandwich?"

Im sure when the green light is given we will be able to change a few minds. My buddy who has a CCW (LEO) said he would go with us when its time to meet for dinner, I think having a LEO might help when the guys showing up dont have a clue what the law is.

The open-carry dinner the author describes sounds exactly like the open-carry lunch we had here in San Diego. One expects to see a bunch of gun-slinging-cowboy boot-wearing- "Charles Bronsons", but in reality, it was a group of normal people (mostly guys) who had a good time. No one was shot, threatened or intimidated. (And the restaurant wasn't held up :43:)

The people that are interested in carrying a firearm are also conscious of the safety of doing so. Its nice to see another person realize that guns don't make you a criminal.

Shhheeeit, good thing I couldn't make the SD meeting, being that I'd be in my ever-present cowboy boots...draggin' my knuckles and all....
