    Anyone up for an OC meeting in Lexington area? There are lots of libs in this area that need to be educated. I know the Christmas holidays are almost upon us so we can hold off until next year if needed.

    I'll attend a Lexington meet. I'd prefer warmer weather as any warm coats or whatever would defeat OC. And holidays are hectic.

    Of course, we may be covered outside in the cold but remove coats once inside to eat. Somebody close run with that one. I'm wanting a steak or ribs in an awful way! Or shrimp. Or BBQ. Or country food. Or.....whatever!

    I'm in KC right now but how about Ted's Montanna Grill in Hamburg? Good food, buffalo meat. Not sure if they are posted though. I could check this weekend.

    Ted's Montana grill works for me. I will be in that area on Friday so I will check to see if they have a no firearms sticker in the window. I wonder how theliberal Ted Turner wouldthink to have all those armed citizens in his establishment? I know I will feel safe.

    Wow.

    OC to prove a point/makea show/intentionally piss people off, and not to simply exercise a right.

    It really makes me sad.

    It's like I have always said...

    "If you can't dazzle 'em with brilliance, stun 'em with stupidity."

    Its not about ******* people off, its about not allowing someone else to deny you a right.

    Is it making a statement, yes it is. Any time we exercising a right we make a statement in favor of said right.

    Is it about proving a point, yes it is. Any time you do anything it proves the point that you can do said thing, in this case exercising a right.

    Are some people uncomfortable by others exercising this right, yes they are. I'm uncomfortable with some things as well but that does not mean others should never do them. It just means I choose not to do them. I CC and OC many times all by myself, does this mean I'm not making a statement or proving a point, not it does not. Its not just doing a thing with numbers of people or just doing it alone, It is simply excercising a right. For those people who are uncomfortable with weapons they may choose to never carry one or own one and that is fine...that is their RIGHT! For those of us who do choose to carry one or own one that is our right as well. Each side has to allow the other side their opinion and to excercise this right how they wish. As long as each side remains within the law there is no problem. We all have the right to disagree or be uncomfortable and those are rights that need "excercising" as much as any other!

    I'm in. Texas Roadhouse has the best ribs in town!

    This would be a great opportunity to print out and distribute the flyer that was sent out of KY OC a few months ago.

    I think he was merely stating a fact. Liberals do need to be educated.

    Right. No one, not me, you, or anyone else, is going to change their minds. All this is going to accomplish is to give them ammunition in their fight.

    Consider OC a way of life, rather than some sort of protest, and you will get farther...

    What in the world are you talking about? The average liberal schmuck you run into on aisle 7 of wal-mart cannot, I reapeat, CANNOT do anything to take away your right to OC. The OP just wanted to walk around with a gun in grandiose fashion, waiting for someone to challenge him, so he could satisfy himself, and have another war story to tell...

    It is, indeed sad.

    I OC as a matter of utility, not as any type of "nya-nya-nya, you can't touch me" type deal.

    Mmm hmm. What, they don't have hands to write their local officials about their horrible experience with a man brandishing (in their minds) a horrible instrument of DEATH that scared them and their small children so badly they had to immediately dial 911 and get the poor guy jacked up for doing nothing?

    BTW this is a real event. Happened at a WalMart, probably not on aisle 7 though.Several WalMarts have implemented a no open carry rule and you will be asked to leave. Want me to get some sources?

    Someone else had this as a thread, and someone who worked at Wal-Mart said their policy is to mirror state law, so Wal-marts in KY should be ok with open carry. Now, each and every CSM on the floor may not be aware of it, but it should be so. If it has been changed, I am not aware of it.

    I'm finally back online and I can't believe some of the replies to my original post. First off...I wasn't trying to piss anyone offwith the words or theactions proposedinthe post. The last thing I want to do is undermine the efforts of opencarry.org. My choice of words may have not been the best, but I was excited about my new found carry right.


    I, like most of the people who wander onto this site, have never known that open carry is legal in their state. Their first exposure to OC is through this site and you can see posts stating this on a daily basis. Most of the population just meander through their daily lives without anyknowledgeof the rights they have.

    Traditionally Lexington has been overwhelmingly to the left, with most supporting some type of gun control. I just wanted to promote anddemonstrate that OC'ers are safe responsible citizens that take responsibility for their own family's safety.It was not to throw a controversy in another man's face.

    While I have been carrying openly for about 6 months or so, I have already had three people come up to me and ask me about it. It has always been friendly, and I felt that the other party had left the conversation knowing a little more about the OC laws of Kentucky. Even though IANAL!

    Let's hope that it warms up soon, so when we have our meeting we don't have to take off two layers of clothing to see that we are OC'ing.

    Z.....don'tallow the negative posts a second of worry. Go with what you have in good faith.

    Some spout, some are scared, some mean well. Consider all posts as constructive and base your opinion on that.A lotare immature and haven't been there.

    One open carries because it is a right and if it is construed otherwise, so be it. Let them foam while you prove and de foam.

    I'd be up for a meet. I go to UK and just bought my first gun yesterday (though I still owe $0.01 on it and can't pick it up until Monday as that is when I turn 21).
