Actually a surprising number of states allow unloaded open carry and a few even allow loaded open carry. The main thing to beware of is city and county ordinances that disallow open carry and your distance to a federal building or school. Remember kids guns are inanimate objects and incapable of violence on their own.
@Friendzone: Yet, when a kid isn’t ready for a certain toy, we take away the toy, not the kid. Same should go for a community which isn’t ready for firearms. I wish we could take away the community, but we can’t, so we take away the toy until they learn how to use it properly. Simple…
@7 You are trolling, right? Shade’s analogy made perfect sense to me.
Besides, there are indeed a lot of stupid people around, who treat guns the same way a kid treats a toy. Just a couple of hours away from where I live, a 5 year old boy killed his baby sister with a rifle his parents gave him for his birthday. I know this is an extreme case, but killing anyone is always an extreme case.
How about an actual analogous example. More people die each year from drinking and driving than guns, but no one’s calling for car control laws or alcohol control laws, we simply run ads to tell people to behave responsibly and jail those who break the law anyway. Why should we treat guns any different?

#6 Well that was a staggeringly stupid piece of logic. Sadly your whole point is predicated on gun violence being rather common. Which is categorically untrue. The number of gun related violent incidents is down and has been steadily declining. This includes frenzy shootings in schools and in public. You’re welcome to look to the crime statistics the FBI publishes on that. Sadly the media is subscribing more to “if it bleeds it leads” than “lets give a fair and balanced perspective on the facts”. Guns have much less to do with violent crime than mental health issues and education issues.
