Welcome to OCDO.
I moved here from Charleston, SC, where I was once active in Grassroots Gun Rights SC scfirearms.org. Then we maintained a list of no-guns posted businesses. Late one night I was called by the list maintainer to verify a posting in darkest downtown Charleston - OC is still illegal in SC. I was glad that I was armed. There, my chief of police told me to be a good nosy neighbor in response to some incidences of intimidation, and I took to OC on my curtilage.
I now have <700 neighbors, by census, and our most significant crime is underaged drinking. I OC or CC always IAW the law.
