The following events happend at the two past weekly VA Beach GOP breakfasts at
the Crown Plaza Hotel. Last week I went and a lady got upset when she observed I
was OCing. Although she did not confront me personally, yet she brought it to
the attention of the chairman yet the chairman did not mention it to me.
This week we had a decent sized Ron Paul turnout and the chairman asked one of
the ladies with us why I was carrying a gun. Her answer to him was he carries it
everywhere and I feel a lot safer when he's around but you will have to ask him.
The chairman approached me about it and basically said that a woman who brought
her daughter was upset that I had a gun. He also told me the woman said that had
she known someone would have been there with a gun she wouldn't have brought her
daughter. I informed the charman that since the hotel had a liquor license I am
required open carry. I also told him I would be more then happy to discuss this
with the woman. Later on when I was talking to him again he asked for my name
and phone number so if the lady called him she could contact me to discuss the
matter. Upon further discussion with the chaiman, I realized he was not
familiar with VA gun laws. Also, I was informed that he will be seeking a
position on the bench (to be a judge).
The next breakfast is Saturday Jan 5th 8AM at the Crown Plaza Hotel on Bonney
Rd. in VA Beach. Perhaps we should make this an open carry event.
