Thread: Unicorn spotted today
I spotted a unicorn at about 10 am today at the Speedway on Midland Trail in Shelbyville. I pulled up close to the front door and spotted him in my rearview mirror crossing behind me. He headed to the outer pumps and got into a white Toyota pickup and escaped before I could attempt a consensual encounter. I couldn't make out what type of weapon he was carrying, but the holster was "Serpa-like", right hand, 3 o'clock. Always nice to see another OC'er, but wish we could have exchanged pleasantries. I don't think he ever saw me, another unicorn, since I was still in the car until he was well past me. By the time I was out of the car I was well behind him and then he was gone. Gone like the sweet smelling flowers in October, gone like young love for an old man, gone like young childhood dreams. Gone, but not, nor ever to be, forgotten.

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

Drake, go lay down.
I met an OCer in Pikeville City Park recently. He was carrying a small (Ruger?) pistol in a leather holster. He was out enjoying lunch with his wife and two grandkids until two people, BreKay and I, interrupted his lunch to talk to him about OC. Friendly guy.
He said he wasn't a member on OCDO but I pointed him this way, hoping he will join. He still might. I hope that he does.
No man alive can beat me in a fair fight: It's not fair to chase a man down and beat him.
How did you determine he was a unicorn if he left before you could contact him?
A unicorn is someone who discovers or realizes OC is legal without influence by OCDO or news stories, and decides to just OC. The origin of the word here on OCDO is that such a person was judged to be as rare as a unicorn.
We have a few unicorns here on OCDO--OCers from back before OCDO even existed. I'm pretty sure Sonoran Rebel is one. But, today, after all the press OCDO has gotten, and caused in 2A media, a genuine new unicorn is pretty unlikely. Certainly one would have to talk to him to find out for sure.
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.
No one else opened this topic up assuming gs saw Drake ? >.<
OT : Glad to see others are out there! I have only ran into ONE person OC'ing ( other than myself) here in LEX!
Could have been me however I moved from Shelbyville a year ago so not likely and I don't have a Toyota.
