The best part of the whole thing was when the freedom fighter in my pic showed exactly how well he handled the weapon slung across his back by inadvertently dragging the barrel of that nice, shiny gun down the concrete wall to his right. He was clearly a well-oiled fighting machine high on situational awareness.

He was definitely pro gun. There were a bunch of gun demonstrators there that day with their AKs, ARs, etc. strapped to their backs, plus there was at least one guy in full-on Revolutionary-Era garb. It was utterly ridiculous, and I say that as someone whose gun-control stance is only a couple of steps more restrictive than, "if they're 18 and want one, they can have it."

I noticed the backpack, too. My first thought was that Diadora was the brand all the soccer players liked when I was in high school, and that guy didn't strike me as the soccer type.

Georgia is not a traditional open carry state. However, open carry IS legal with a Georgia permit. It is also worthy of note that you MAY openly carry a firearm without a permit in a motor vehicle.
I'd actually say that he's doing quite a lot; demonstrating first-hand the inalienable rights that most citizens have forgotten or don't realize they have.
I know the laws, but the laws don't justify his behavior.
The only thing he's doing, along with his buddies at the "demonstration," is perpetuating tired stereotypes about Southern gun owners. The whole thing was a needless display of saber rattling, and these types of displays do far more harm to gun rights advocacy than good.
