It happened. Open Carry Activist had his gun taken by homeless man....

suspect in the successful gun snatch

via Ammoland.

“The friend said the victim, a gun advocate, wanted to make a statement about the right to bear arms and had been on busy State Street a couple of times practicing open carry,” DeSpain said. “The friend also admitted they were Downtown to get girls’ phone numbers.”

Bogus, who is known to Downtown patrol officers, confronted the man saying something like, “Why you wanna kill people?” DeSpain said. “The man with guns responded by saying he was armed because it was his right and it was for protection.”

Bogus then closed the distance between the two, getting close enough to grab a holstered handgun from the armed man, DeSpain said.

Bogus “pointed the loaded weapon at the victim, and the victim, in turn, pulled out his long gun and pointed it” at Bogus, DeSpain said. “It was a fluid, tense and quick standoff.”

Bogus ran off with the man’s gun, DeSpain said. Officers found him and recovered the stolen handgun, taking Bogus into custody on several tentative charges.

I get what Open Carry Activists are TRYING TO DO, but I still think its batshit stupid.

This guy is lucky he didn't get killed.

Open Carry? 

Just don't do it.  If you're serious about self defense then its the last thing in the world anyone should do.

If you're an Activists?

You're on your own.  We part company on this one.
