    Every time I've been on an OC walk, someone has learned about it.. It'd make me laugh that people say "everyone already knows about it" if I didn't know they really thought that.

    The topless protestors seriously misjudged the OCers. In their world view, all "gun nuts" must be super-conservatives who would be shocked and offended at the sight of a bare breast. Surprise! OC advocates tend to be in favor of all individual liberties.

    He's insinuating that I am against the individual Freedom of praying in public. Simply reading my post will reveal that what I am against is the feigning of prayer for a petty 15% discount at the eatery in question.

    OT: I wonder what MAD moms has to say about their "support"-ers.
    Sorry, couldn't resist making a little joke.

    Also, I found ONE bit of projection more than a little amusing:
    "They certainly seemed to think it was strange that we weren't intimidated by them or they weapons – which gives the lie to their assertions that open-carry activists are just trying to make sure everyone else feels comfortable."

    I carry to defend my loved ones; Desensitizing and educating are secondary & tertiary reasons. Anything else is unintended.

    They love to tell us what we think. They evaluate our psych through pictures and facebook posts and let us know all of our intentions and beliefs and thoughts quite often. We'd certainly be lost without them.

    This thread is NOTHING without pictures! Examples of both legal and illegal per your statement, Please!
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!
