What open-carry walkers hoped to prove remains a mystery

A group of openly armed gun-rights activists invaded the International Street Fair in uptown Athens on Saturday. Or perhaps “invaded” is overstating the situation.

The several openly armed men – two or three middle-aged or older wearing polo shirts and khaki shorts or jeans and a couple of younger men – strolled down Court Street amid the various international booths and attending crowds. Their grand entrance mainly elicited indifference from international and domestic students alike, as well as from the many Athens area residents who attended the popular annual Street Fair.

"People openly carrying guns is freedom to intimidate others, but not a comfortable feeling for the vast number of people, especially us POCs (people of color).”

What?  And that guy is a professor.

Also these gems:

“I’ve always felt perfectly safe walking around without a gun, either openly or concealed, but now I realize I should be afraid and carry a firearm, the bigger the better.”

“Wow, you really don’t have to feel like an over-compensating goof-ball while carrying around enough firepower to knock off the biggest bank in town.”


And then claiming that if Athens' local chapter of ANTIFA had come out to fight and start a riot it would have been the fault of the open carriers.

The author seems disappointed that nothing bad happened that he could blame the 2A advocates for, so he was forced to make up hypothetical situations to blame them for.

Well its alot of that these days. If there is nothing wrong with it then you can always find something anyway.

If it was so scary, why the "indifference" from those in attendance?

Seems like nothing to see here, move on to the next crisis.
