I disagree, Vermonter. The fact is, many more people open carry in Virginia on a daily basis thanother states in the union - possiblycombined. I challenge you to actually list the "constant battles for open carry" in Virginia - how many have their been in the past year that you can identify from this board? TWO. And no one was arrested, and I'd say we "won" both times. Most of the posts about Virginia are about other things than battles for open carry - such asthe Bloomberg Gun Giveaway, sharing stores about sucessful open carry, etc. Why do you call this "constant battles for open carry"?I've heard this from youseveral times before - I am sorry that you are frustrated and sounda bitbitter that there are so many more of us here in Virginia than elsewhere, but my sincere hope is for that to change. Meanwhile, the facts are as they are, and open carry is simply more common in Virginia than elsewhere. Virginia is a state that is dozens of times bigger than Vermont (in population and square miles), so it should not besurprisingthat there would be more Virginia topics and members. It also is home to both a huge pro-gun population, and a changing demographic with many antis moving here from the North - and that dynamism creates a lot to talk about. Vermont is awesome for gun rights, and I'd love to see that elsewhere. But I am not sure why you have posted several times with such frustration, as if the fact that Virginia has such an active pro-gun movement annoys you.
