News Flash, even the gun manufactures don't care about your right to own a gun.
But getting back to your question, we are in the minority and if it alienates other people from going into that business, well you get the picture I'm sure.
I personally would never open carry, (unless on a woods walk or out camping or something) the reason why I like it is to throw the guns in the 'socialist' faces.
They are coming after the guns but they are doing an end around without even going near the 2nd amendment. They will never get them out completely but they'll slow it down. And the methods they are starting to use leaves you with no way to counter it because of the bureaucracy involved and the time and headaches to do it.
I hope you realize that as it stands today if you challenge a denial at your local FFL they don't even have to hear it. You'll need a lawyer and good luck with that if you can afford it.
So how will they get the guns you ask, simple, the same way people deny you a job or an apartment. Let's say you have a blemish on your credit report it will flag you as being irresponsible. Let's say when you go for your yearly Doctors visit and he happens to interpret your sadness over the death of your dog as 'depression', guess what flagged for mental illness,,,denied completely. Something to think about.
Those are but a few ways and the ATF has been working on tying data bases together.
In the end the only people who will have the guns outside of the police forces will be like it is New York city, the well connected and the elitist.
And if you have been following recent events the ATF was caught violating Federal Law a few weeks back when it was exposed they have not been destroying gun owners information after the background checks and the reason some suspect is to build a data base so they will know what doors to knock on to confiscate the guns when Uncle Sam decides to stick it to 'We The People' good.
Stock up and keep it dry.
