Help me out: If I hear gun rights advocates correctly, they want to carry guns to protect themselves in the event they are attacked or a shooter begins randomly firing.
That’s not totally logical, but I can see their thinking.
So tell me exactly why someone would carry a replica or carving of a gun (as several people did to Arlington council).
Maybe I missed something, but I don’t see protection applying here.
Never miss a local story.
Their argument that they are just trying to get the public comfortable with guns is like walking around naked so people will get used to it.
Carrying fake guns in public places is nothing more than an attention-getting stunt. It’s just saying “hey look at me.”
It reminds me of a guy I saw walking without a shirt. He thought it was cool, but I suspect everyone he passed thought, “what a jerk.”
