Just joined and I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. Been meaning to join here for a while. My name is Jim. I generally CC more than OC but I've started OC'ing a little more here lately and its quite funny to see people's reactions.

Welcome to the forum Jim. I got my permit in the 70's when they were very difficult to obtain. It has always concerned me that we asked for permission to carry a gun when we have always had a right to carry openly.
Thanks to VCDL and more active gunowners, we have made great strides in improving the gun laws.
Unfortunately, with the progress in issuing permits, I have noticed a very dangerous trend in using the permits as a leash.
For instance, permit holders may carry in WMA's any time while non permit holders may only do so during hunting season.
The OC movement helps to insure that firearms carry progresses at the same rate. In other words, permit holders are not an elite class. If we allow that to happen, firearms carry will become a privilege instead of a right.
