Thread: Unicorn in Harbor Freight
I was in Harbor Freight this afternoon buying a hand truck.
Spotted an OC'er at the checkout. Black BDU pants, Black Ed style shirt, a ring through his nose and earrings.
Didn't have time to talk to him.
The term means an OCer who decided to start OCing because he found out on his own it was legal, as compared, for example, to a VCDL member who heard about it during a meeting, or somebody who came across our website. Such people are thought to be about as rare as unicorns.
Unfortunately, quite a few OCDOer's mistakenly think it means an OCer not personally known the spotter.
Given the publicity OC has enjoyed over the last five years, genuine unicorns are even less likely.
And, certainly, you can't tell whether its a unicorn unless you talk to them and find out how they found out it was legal.

I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.
If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?
There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
Happy to have the definition. I always thought that one was a "Unicorn" just based on the fact that they are OCing, since OCers are as rare as Unicorns.
It is my belief that we should never make conduct unlawful merely to make life easier for those we have hired to enforce the laws and keep the peace.
