    I'm deserting Ohio, folks. The wife and I are both headed to Virginia. I will be sure to keep an eye on what's happening in the Buckeye State, but I'm not going to lie; I am looking forward to more gun freedom and some decent weather . I know that there are a whole lot of good people in Virginia, and I'm looking forward to getting to meet some of them. Hopefully when I go back to Ohio to visit next time, I'll be able to OC in my car, and those dumb gun free zone signs will be gone?...

    Defecting to Dixie? You're no Ohioan...

    But seriously, enjoy the weather and the marginal improvement on your gun rights.

    Oh thank God you are just moving. When I read the title of the thread, being positive you weren't going to be giving up your 2A rights, I was thinking, "OMG he's coming out of the closet on the forum." :P

    Good luck on your move!

    Only request I might have is to "think" like a Southerner and adopt our ways. You'll love it. I know because one heck of a lot of Northerners come down here to vacation so we must be doing something right.

    Welcome to Virginia. Next VCDL meetings are 5/22 in Annandale. and 5/29 in Richmond. Hope you can make one of them. Check out the Tidewater OC dinner dates - not sure if they have already met & et for this month.

    You are aware that the new guy buys ammo, right? And none of the Extreme Shoick stuff the FNG you are bumping up to Former FNG tried to stick us with, OK?

    If you have never carried while visiting your state Senator and/or Delegate, you are in for a thrill! Join VCDL for Lobby Day next January 19th - put it on your calendar today. We might be getting "permission" to CC in restaurants next year - passed the General Assembly this year but the Governor said "guns & booze don't mix" for common folks but is OK for Commonwealth's Attornies & their Assistants. (go figure )

    stay safe.

    I wonder how many here on OCDO are offended when 'The Battle Hymn of the Republic' is played, especially for political purposes, without 'Dixie' being immediately played. The Battle Hymn was written to denigrate (that's 'dis' as in disrespect) the Republic and the South. Long live the Republic!

    I actually am a native Southerner. It will take awhile to get rid of my Yankee accent, but it will happen eventually.

    Yankees don't have accents... "Y'all" do. ;-/

    The irony being that this part of southwest Ohio is technically south of Mason-Dixon (if you extend it west).

    I was actually talking about being on the southern side of the Mason-Dixon line, but that's really funny. No, I'm not giving up my guns: I'm not dead and my hands aren't cold!

    I understand your sympathies and your thrust. I am indeed a Southern man and happy for the fact. I also am an American and heppy for that fact as well. While I bleed grey just like most Southerners, I also respect and acknowledge those who call another region of the nation their home. My fervent hope is for those who decide to migrate here and make it their home, adopt our culture and our ways as their own. Otherwise, the beauty and richness that is the South will be lost in the mix and that would be truly a sad thing.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?
