Agreed! There is a huge difference in "open carry" and openly carrying an "assault-style" rifle. I whole heartedly support the 2nd Amendment, and our right to bear arms. I do not subscribe to the idiocy of calling a particular rifle "assault" rifle b/c a spoon can be used to assault. Assault is an act, not a tool! But, what these people don't understand is that perception is reality whether it is the truth or not. The truth is they are law abiding citizens exercising their right to bear arms. Perception, however, is that they are lunatics who are only out to cause a stir, which does more harm than good for the pro-gun cause.
