I want everyone who advocates for open carry to go to Robb’s blog and watch the video he did with the local ABC affiliate. That is how you advocate for open carry. He looks like a normal dude, doesn’t shout about A RIGHT UNEXERCISED IS LOST, and he certainly didn’t wave a shotgun around. Instead, he acted like a rational dude and made his points succinctly and intelligently. And he even wore pants.
Whether or not you like it, while carrying you are having to break down the negative stereotypes associated with carrying from the media. This is much more easily done by acting and behaving exactly like Robb did. Serious kudos to you Robb, that’s the way to win hearts and minds!
Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.
He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.
