    Black Open Carriers in WA?

    Hi all, I was just wondering if there were any black or african-american open carriers in Washington? The first guy I ever saw OC was a black dude in Everett and it blew my mind and made me interested in OC. I hear the arguement against OC all the time that it's racist because "black people would get shot doing it" and I'd like to get some feedback from some black OCers.

    Who cares what "color" you are. Gun lives matter. The 2nd Amendment has no distinction for race. Keep Calm, Carry on. (BTW that saying is from England 1939, and has nothing to do with guns)

    When my nephew turned 21 and he lived with me he used to OC before he moved back to a non OC state. He had no problems and put the myth of black guys would get shot to death.

    I have pictures floating around here somewhere.

    Advice I give to all new carriers and its what I did first, was carry in areas/stores that are gun friendly. It will help ease the worries give practice for making your normal routine.

They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    Asian Open Carriers in WA?



    Hi all, I was just wondering if there were any Asian or Oriental open carriers in Washington? The first guy I ever saw OC was an asian dude in Everett and it blew my mind and made me interested in OC. I hear the arguement against OC all the time that it's racist because "asian's would get shot doing it" and I'd like to get some feedback from some asian OCers.

    Hey thanks for the feedback ppl. I'm not trying to stir the pot I was just curious. Race issues are cited a lot by the anti gun liberal crowd and I just wanted some examples to throw in their face when they talk their trash.
