Three cheers Mob. Keep up the good work.
Thread: Another positive OC experience.
I went to Subway tonight to order dinner for the family. When I went in, the place was empty. As I ordered (5 meals) a lady walked in and stood beside me. I apologized for taking so long. She was open and funny about razzing me about holding up the line. We joked a little back and forth. And one point she stopped and said "Mind if I ask you a question?" I said sure. She asked, "Is that legal here?" pointing at my firearm. "I mean, we just moved here from Salt Lake City and I was curious." So I explained a little about the laws. She said, "That's great, I all for it." I told her I'm not too worried about Parker and before I could finish, she said "Yeah but think about this past Christmas at the McDonald's."
I had completely forgotten about the shooting over at the McDonald's. I said "Good point." We talked a little about her kids and how she now asks her boyfriend to carry his firearm every time they go out. He's a CHP holder. I talked a little about the places you aren't allowed to carry. Finally, before I left, she said "Well if I ever see you in a movie theater I'm sitting next to you."
It was a pleasant talk. By the end of it, another customer had come in. And I had everyone in the store nodding in approval. The other customers and the lady behind the counter. Felt good.
I love Colorado.
VERY good stuff =)

At the last Meet and Greet, we discussed the importance of each OC'er to be an ambassador for open carry. We talked about how, in our own self interest, an onus exists to be a positive image to every citizen with whom we interact. The more folks who meet us, learn from us, and walk away with a better opinion, the better our chances of gaining Constitutional carry in Colorado.
To that end, you are doing a terrific job Mobi, and I, for one, and proud of your efforts to help provide a positive model to the community at large.
Well done, amigo. Well done indeed!
And here all this time I thought you didn't need to carry a gun in Colorado; after all you do have some of the most "pro-active" police departments protecting you as they would call it in Aurora. Most of us would call it illegal.
PS, most of us call it illegal too, but only the people who were actually affected can sue. I hope they do.
Moments like that make so much worth while.
