Too often, open-carry groups are an excuse for right-wing white dudes to wear their politics on their sleeves and maybe menace a hippie or two. But you know the folks in Hell's Saints are about the issues and not identity politics. Their membership is black and white, and they stick to the issues, cheerfully educating their fellow citizens about gun ownership. What's more, when Hell's Saint Elijah Woody was arrested for his activities last year, their rally showed they could be a potent force for justice. In January, a jury found Woody not guilty of carrying a concealed weapon.
