This picture was taken last year, I just finished teaching class, on my way home.
The picture was posted to a FB group that is no longer up..But it was a anti 2a group of clucking hens, male and female types that were traumatized and offended by the sight of a GUN .
Fellow posters on that sight had all kinds of "great" suggestion, from calling the police and saying they were scared for their life, to running over "that idiot gun nut", to having a friend "run my plate" and get my home address so I could be visited and given an earful...what ever that means.
I was told about the pic, from a friend of a friend with an acquaintance that saw us together at a bike night and put two and two together. Im told, word got back to the group admin, screen shots of the suggestions for illegal activities and outright physical threats had been taken and sent to the FBI and Texas Department of Justice ..I do not know if any of that is true....only have it third hand, I was later told the FB group was shut down with no explanation..it simply was no longer there.
Too bad, i wanted to join and saying thanks for the pic, I liked it enough to post it on my FB page..LOL I hardly ever get pics of me riding even though i ride 10's of thousands of miles a year.
BTW, That was an intentional "open carry" not because Im all that interested in Open carry, but simple because the jacket I wore that day did not fit well over my gun.

At a stoplight, a lady pulled up next to me in a crossover SUV that was decked out in political stickers that typically signal an anti-gun bias even if there is no anti-gun bias sticker (which I saw after we pulled out when the light turned green). I really didn't pay her any mind until, when the light turned green, I glanced and saw her phone up. She was probably taking a picture. I imagine that picture is floating around some angry mom forums.
