    Bare chests and guns.

    FUQ-Those who attend might see not only bare-chested women, but also people carrying firearms. Members of Washington Open Carry Whatcom County will be present – in an unofficial capacity – with publicly displayed firearms in accordance with state law, said group member Robert Stratton.“We are not providing security but some of us will attend in support of rights. It’s our belief we must all stand up for each other’s rights,” Stratton said in response to a social media inquiry.

    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Bad Bellingham Herald!

    Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!

    The online Bellingham Herald sells so much ad space that the page takes forever to load! And we thought the Examiner was bad! I finally had to delete the tab so that I could get response from all other pages I attempted to access while it was loading!

    Bad online Bellingham Herald! No Biscuit!

    We were invited. Kind of puts a different twist to "Open Carry".

    Topless protest fizzles with low turnout

    Some members of Open Carry Whatcom County showed up.

    A low turnout by the protesters, yes. On the other hand there were over twenty open carriers including a petite young lady with an AK47 slung across her back. A half dozen LEOs observed and some attempted to engage us in conversation. Unfortunately, they were pulled away by officer slydesko. One LEO was "plainclothes".

    WE all wandered around, speaking among ourselves. Found two unicorns who saw us (WOCWC) on social media and showed. Cool. Made a few extra converts and passed out a bunch of brochures and pocket Constitutions. No troubles, no worries, no incidents.

    Boomboy had a great time and his Sweetie was OCing. SVG did a bit of "public speaking" and my Sweet Baboo was their, too, with her Sig out in the open. All in all a good day for OC.

    No sir. We stayed in the real world and passed out real US Constitutions.

    Whether female breasts can or should be subject to different laws than male chests in terms of public exposure is not something I need to discuss here. But from a purely aesthetic point of view, most people look better with a little coverage than without.

    Obviously you didn't grow up in Bloomington IN, home of IU and a once thriving limestone industry which left a number of "swimming holes" frequented by the college crowd in the 60s and 70s. AUHAAAA my formative years, couple hundred college students (50/50) and not a swim suit in sight.

    In many cases more than just "a little coverage", in fact I can think of a bunch that require quite "a lot of coverage".


    Out of curiosity, how many of the Open Carrier guys were topless?

    but F350, them their quarry pits were a mite, nawllll, mite my arse ~ they were flat out cold to swim in, but like you stated, as in IN, in ohio the nice young college students as well as the young country folk loved to skinny dip in them...assisting some to learn about the birds and bees not on the playground but around the quarry pits and it wasnt all lecture presentations...

    That is a heck of a fetish that the previous poster has shared with us. It truly was and remains something that I would be very happy NOT to have been privy too.
    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!

    Yes there was one open carrier who was topless. He also wore band-aids over the "offensive bits"
