The PA mom who legally open carried to her son’s soccer game has had her permit restored. This is a good thing, because unlike “open carry events”, this woman wasn’t looking to cause trouble, she just wanted to go her child’s game and relax – it shouldn’t have mattered even for a moment if she was packing, no matter what some allegedly pro-gun people said at the time.
I thought long and hard about this issue – I’m a big fan of open carry in theory, but a lot of the time lately I feel like Open Carry is being abused as a way to get attention and is actually hurting our cause rather than helping it. However, on this issue I felt like this was exactly how I’d want to see open carry done – casually, without drawing attention to one’s person while so doing.
I’m very pleased to see that rule of law has been upheld in this issue.
