So, Occupy Broad Ripple With Guns has, as could have been predicted, caught the eye of the local media. I haven't decided if I'll be attending or not, but their heart seems in the right place: This isn't some Curtis Sliwa-esque vigilante patrol, but a pro-gun public outreach thing to raise awareness that folks are allowed to protect themselves in Indiana.
I did note one thing in the video with dismay, if also a total lack of surprise: Folks if you're going to be carrying your heaters out where God and the TV cameras can see them, is it asking too much to get you to spend as much on your holsters as you did on your shoes? Seriously, you're wearing a nice sports coat and look all cleaned up and presentable and your heater is in some horrible $9.99 nylon & velcro sausage sack with Irish pennants dangling from the seams.
