    First OC in over 3 years...

    March of 2009 temporarily suspended the freedoms I enjoyed so much in WA as I was transferred to California. Having only been back in a free state for 11 days, spending my time unpacking and going to/from work, today was the first day I have been able to run errands. When leaving the house, my g/f asked if I was taking my gun with, to which I replied I was. She gave me a weird look and that was the end of it. Listed below are my stops.

    Skagit Famers Supply - 20 minutes. Dropped off some paperwork, special ordered some dog food, bought electric fence stuff. No looks or comments. Uneventful.
    Home Depot - 30 minutes. Bought spray paint and sand paper. No looks or comments.
    Saars Market Place - 60+ minutes. Grocery shopping. Child commented about MWAG. Parent told child to mind their own business and not bother others then apologized. I replied with a "No worries" and went about my shopping. Offered an OC pamplet.

    All in all, great day. More to come and I hope I don't get asked to leave WalMart again (for those that know that story).

    Welcome home! Now go get yourself a proper AR and a pistol-gripped shotgun.

    Every Northwesterner has to go to California at least once in their life to find out why they do not want to live there.

    LOL What? California?
    It is a great place to be from! [/sarcasm]


    No really, its a great place to be far away from!

    I don't know if Washington is far enough away!

    Let me make a short, opening, blanket statement. There are no good guns. There are no bad guns. Any gun in the hands of a bad man is a bad thing. Any gun in the hands of a decent person is no threat to anybody - except bad people.

    Has anyone ever figured out why so many live there and seem to like it? Could it be something in the water or food supply that causes brain damage? Mass Hysteria? Or are they just cultists that are following some unknown leader?

    As for me, they should just make a right turn at the Arizona Border with CA and Mexico, building the "fence" all the way around CA. Move the border control check points to the OR/ID/AZ borders and let the whole state become one big "Tijuana".

    LOL Sure you meant NV rather than ID. [/sarcasm]
