    a gun is like a knife-a mope shouldn't see it until after you have shot or cut him

    The thing you're conveniently ignoring is that said bad guy will hesitate to act when everyone in the establishment is openly armed.

    1 gun against 1-2 others? Sure, maybe the element of surprise will help the bad guy... but 1 gun against a dozen armed citizens? Oh hells no.

    Do you feel the same way about others open carrying a knife? Why or why not?

    I have no problem with the open carry of a blade, although you tend to lose your advantage of surprise. I carry two of them, a folding blade in my pocket and a vintage 6" German-made stiletto in my boot.
