The Lesson - You Don't Need to Make a Point of Open Carry Carry in a State Where It's Legal

The Richmond Times Dispatch reports that two guys from Chesterfield tried to organize a show of support for open carry but they were the only two that showed up.
More than 300 people were invited on Facebook to walk down Cary Street on July Fourth with handguns, rifles and other so-called “long guns” proudly displayed.

Two showed up — and they were the organizers of the midday event in the family-oriented Carytown shopping district.
As the RTD noted, it is perfectly legal to carry firearms openly in Virginia.  So as one of the people who commented back on the Facebook page of the organizer, exactly what were they protesting?
