Why I carried an AR-15 rifle through Sky Harbor

(Arizona Republic) - November 24, 2014

Peter Steinmetz: Our rights should not be jeopardized by others' irrational fears.

Since I peacefully, legally and openly carried an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle through the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport last July, many people have wondered, both privately and publicly, why I would do such a thing. Indeed, many have speculated on my motives in most unkind terms.

Having recently emerged from the threat of prosecution on two felony "dangerous nature" criminal charges, I can now freely address the important reasons for this protest. In brief, I must protest a now nearly institutionalized attempt to intimidate us into surrendering our civil rights to other people's irrational fears.

We all have fears, but what do I mean by irrational fears?

LETTERS: What were you thinking, doctor?

DOCTOR: Carrying at airport was political

MONTINI: Envy, don't condemn, Dr. Steinmetz

Some fears are, of course, quite rational; for example, being fearful of burning your finger after touching a hot burner as a child.

But the responses to other fears are simply not based on a reasonable assessment of reality. They are are irrational.

Extreme examples can be psychotic or delusional beliefs, such as being afraid to get out of bed at night because of a fixed false belief that a ghost will emerge from the closet to harm you.

Other fears are irrational because the assessment of the likelihood of the event is completely out of proportion to reality. An example would be an unwillingness to leave the house because a meteor might strike and kill you. While a meteor could suddenly come out of the sky and kill you, it only happens 1 time in every 74.8 million years of life.

Unfortunately, our airports are now prime sites where people's irrational responses to their fears are used as an excuse to bully, intimidate or force us into giving up our liberties. Here are three such fears:

One argument given for why it is just terrible to carry an AR-15 to the airport is that these are such dangerous and awful weapons that no civilian needs them, let alone to carry them at the airport.

FEAR OF PARTICULAR FIREARMS PER SE

However, as recently noted in the piece "The Assault Weapon Myth" (Sept. 12), this type of rifle is scarcely ever used to commit a crime. From a statistical perspective, these are not the weapons to be concerned about if one is actually worried about firearm injuries and death.

Fearing an AR-15 to a much greater extent than a handgun is simply not supported by facts, and as such, is irrational.

FEAR OF PEOPLE OPENLY CARRYING FIREARMS

Another common argument is that it is awful to openly carry a rifle because it might scare people who can't tell if you are a terrorist. The simple fact is that no mass-shooting or terrorist attack committed with a rifle has ever started with the assailant peacefully and openly carrying the rifle about and then suddenly changing into a mass killer.
