When I OC (legal throught Virginia) I am also exercising my 1st Amend right.
I am telling people that what I am doing is legal. It is an educational thing, something in which I am involved every time I go out and about.
I OC at restaurants, shopping, city hall, and even our General Assembly building. There are times it is a great conversation starter - education by example. Always try to give people that question me information of this site and VCDL.
