    I think we did a pretty good job of commemorating it this past Monday... although I honestly didn't know anything about this event until today!

    Unfortunately not enough of us do that, hopefully it'll raise awareness though!!

    Research your local and state laws, make sure you'd be doing so legally and go ahead and OC. Do it on a quick stop to the convenience store or something short at first. Slowly move into the longer all-day carries!
