Anyone here attend Steppin Out in Blacksburg and Open Carry?Iget the feeling that the type of people that attend this won't be open carry, or firearms friendly at all.
I haven't attended Steppin' Out for a number of years although I've OCed in Blacksburg a number of times without a problem. I don't live there anymore but travel there to shop. Since the Tech shooting I exclusively OC, especially on campus. Went to the Neuman library a week or so ago without incident.
I may go this year.
Hey, guess what? A librarian called the cops on you and they declined to show up!!!!!
This is HUGE!!!!
I was working the VCDL table at the Roanoke gun show today and had a chat with another Hokie. He was asking about the laws regarding OC because (here we enter the realm of hearsay) his friend, the librarian, made the call. The dispatcher seemed concerned but no officers responded.
I did my best to explain the whole concept of popular soverignty, that all is permitted without contravening law, and that the school has no right to enforce policy against the public. We shared a grin that the VT police seem to know the law.
If this whole account is accurate then it is a very good sign, exactly the reaction we want from PDs.
And again, out comes the banana :celebrate
