    Voting While Open Carrying

    Exercised two of our most sacred rights this morning in the representation of one of our most sacred freedoms.

    Voted while open carrying at Frazer UMC Church. Not a negative word said, not even a shocked look. In fact, I don't think most of the folks there even noticed the gun on my hip.

    My Beautiful Bride was both proud of me and amazed that I could do these things. Am I proud to be an American? Damn skippy I am!!

    Voted while open carrying at Cedar Grove Baptist Church in Leeds and used my pistol permit as my form of ID. Only comment I got was "I need to renew mine", which was awesome coming from the nice lady who was volunteering at the table.
    There was a time that the pieces fit, but I watched them fall away, mildewed and smoldering, strangled by our coveting. I've done the math enough to know the dangers of our second guessing. Doomed to crumble, unless we grow and strengthen our communication. -Tool, "Schism"

    Rewrite is in order, respectfully. She knows you could/can (very capable of) do those things. That you would without runnig afoul of the law is why she is proud and amazed.

    Well done and +1 to your Sir.

    Well I took my Grandaughter to "help" me vote. Waited in line for a little over an hour. Not one question.
