Kory Watkins, spokesman for Open Carry Tarrant County, was quoted Wednesday saying “The role of government is not to keep me safe. It’s to keep me free.”

If this is true, then the government should not be involved in putting up stop signs, traffic lights, or speed limits.

Watkins’ quote tells you all you need to know about how well Open Carry Tarrant County has thought through its philosophy.
