Rick Ector - Champion of Gun Rights Awareness

NECN.com reports.
This is the guy GoTimothy was talking about.
A gun rights group says it's planning an "open carry" dinner at a Detroit restaurant, with dozens of people expected to wear holstered weapons in plain sight.
Event organizer Rick Ector is a firearms instructor and runs the blog "Legally Armed In Detroit."
The event is being held at a new location and different date after an owner of the restaurant originally planning to host it had second thoughts because of the publicity.
Ector says the event will be Monday evening at the BluePointe Restaurant on Detroit's east side.
Ector says he's seeking to raise awareness of people's legal right in Michigan to carry a licensed weapon in the open.
What's your opinion? Isn't it kind of immature for a bunch of grown men to insist on doing something just because they CAN? Is there any redeeming value to the open carry movement at all? Doesn't it say something that even some gun-rights folks are opposed to this and feel it does more harm than good to their goals?
What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.
