    Hello PA!! Just arrived from VA!

    Hey everybody, just wanted to let you all know that I am now a bonafide resident of Lancaster County. Finally made the move from VA. Does anybody else carry around Lancaster County? I have been OCing for a couple of days with no issues...

    I hear very little trouble coming from Lancaster County, except the city. And while the Mayor is a proud member of M.A.I.G., the Sheriff's Dept is one of PA's best at issuing a LTCF.

    Welcome to PA! I OC in western PA, but I have only seen three OCers in 6 years (other than myself, of course). I think there are more OCers in your neck of the woods.

    I don't recommend joining any forum or organization which allows racism and homophobia to run rampant.Fortunately there is OpenCarry.org, where such behavior is met with a ban.

    Don't like PAFOA, don't join PAFOA. Ain't freedom grand?

    Personally I prefer sticking around to see if I can improve things, or maybe even steer the discussions in a better direction. At least I'll give it a try. Some prefer to tuck and run.

    Ain't freedom grand?

    Just PLEASE, don't link any of this forums threads over there. We don't need the influx of asshats crapping up the place.

    We're not talking about freedom, we're talking about people who are making us all look bad. We don't need more people seeing us a homophobic and / or racist.

    Also since we're on the topic now, free speech isn't unlimited, you can't just bash, harass and insult people without repercussions.

    Many users have announced the behavior of the linked forum you keep referring to, including myself. We all want individuals who don't agree with us to understand where we come from, negative minded individuals don't help the movement.

    That site is a ghost town. Look at the dates of the last posts in most of the threads.. It was set up by a pair of ****** bags who all but ruined the other site that is often linked to, here.

    Now they are both gone from there, also. A little too late in that most of the good posters left because of their actions.
