Good on you! Don't let the bastards grind you down!
I take issue with only one of your comments. By saying you want to OC so the gov't will let you CC "to get the guns out of sight instead of out in the open", you imply you're willing to let the state abrogate one of your RIGHTS by offering you a PRIVILEGE (which they can later restrict or rescind). Be careful what you wish for! There's no reason you can't demand both.
