    Is anybody in the Richmond area interested in carpooling to the Norfolk City Council meeting on August 28th?

    VCDL is having a "show of force" with the City Council - similar to what they did in Manassas - over the Harborfest incident where Chet Czyminski (sp?) got hassled by the police for open-carrying. Norfolk had enacted a city ordinance against firearms at Harborfest, contrary to pre-emption.

    I'm planning on leaving around 5 PM, and can take up to 3 passengers (4 if someone wants to sit between split seats:shock. PM me to work out arrangements.

    stay safe.

    I heard talk about the 30th? I must be getting confused. I personally want to go to the about the gentlemen getting unlawfully detained and etc for OCing. I don't have my work schedule past the 25th, but I definitely want to do everything I can to make it out to the council meeting on the 28th.

    http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum54/3757.html quotes directly from the VCDL Update newsletter and it says 8-28-07 so I'm sure that's the right date.

    Confusion over. I put in to be off on the 28th,and my fiancee (amanda to those who were at the OC dinner.) do plan on going. Money is short as she just started a new job,and I am starting a new job sooner. I'd love to work out a carpool/car train up there.

    When would you guys be leaving? I need to pick up my 1911 at 8am, and it's a 2 hour drive to Richmond from here.

    I'm wanting to go, but it's about $40 in gas one way for me to drive down there.

    4 hour drive + 91 Jeep Cherokee = :shock: on gas
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    You may be on to something considering that all of the roads here are perpetually under construction. :X

    Funny thing is, I've been getting about 17mpg, which is actually HIGHER than the OLDER EPA projections for it. :-D

    So like I said, when are people heading down?

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Ditto. I would really prefer not to drive down there on 81, if someone's passing through this way.

    Well, I'm about two hours from Richmond, North on 81....

    Does that help anyone?

    I could also meet up in Charlottesville, if someone has somewhere for me to park.
