More Activism

Joe shows the T-shirt he wore through a TSA security checkpoint. I ended up in a conversation with a TSA agent once because of the shirt (or maybe it was a hat, I can’t remember exactly) I was wearing, because he was interested in buying a gun for himself, and was wondering what a good beginner pistol was. This was heading out of Philadelphia.

There are a lot of ways to get the conversation started.

  1. What I said on Joe’s blog is this:

    I don’t think anyone would be too offended or uncomfortable seeing that, even people who are upset at the sight of guns. In fact, unlike the open carry protesting that I feel is counterproductive to your cause, a t-shirt like that might work well. It might give people an opportunity to think about the issue without feeling bullied or threatened. And please, before any of you start in on me, I’m not saying it’s right for non-gun folks to react like that, feeling bullied and threatened, but it does happen, these are the common reactions.

  2. MikeB,

    I feel bullied and threatened by gun control posts on your blog.

    Will you please cease and desist from posting them so that I won’t feel bullied or threatened any more?

    While feeling threatened by the mere sight of an inanimate object does happen, I disagree that it is common.


    I don’t think I or any other Open Carry advocate have ever said there aren’t other ways of starting a conversation.

    I just think that it doesn’t make sense not to use all the ways to start a conversation

  3. You know it’s funny, but I’ve never really had a problem with the TSA at Philly or BWI. I flew out of LAX once and that was a total nightmare.
