    I am very interested. That is my old stomping ground. I haven't ate there in a long while, but I remember them having decent food for a decent price. They were always very supportive of the community...many donations for various community groups(ie Lions Club, Little League). Always a place to find some state troopers gathering for a meal. Would be a great place to meet prior to the gun show. I will work on my schedule see if I can confirm my ability to attend.

    Anyone o/c'd there before? I assume them to be o/c friendly?

    Are we sure there is a Dale City Show?

    I just looked on the website, and the only one listed is the one back in Feb.

    I also signed up for the mailer, but have yet to receive anything.

    Gentlemen and lady;

    Enjoyed having lunch with your folks today. Keep the faith and keep OC'ing to send out the message that we're the good guys.

    There was a brief discussion regarding whether or not Virginia was a "duty to retreat" state. My stance was that it is not. In fact, if you have a legal right to be where you are, you may stand your ground and not retreat to avoid having to use deadly force as a defense. The exception to this is if you are party to the instigation and escalation of the threat. Then you must retreat until you can no longer do so safely before you can use deadly force.

    If you wear the vale of innocence and are the true victim of the threat, you may stand your ground regardless of where you are, as long as you are there legally.


    Here is an excerpt from a case which deals with this. The case is DECARLOS D. COLEMAN.


    "III. SELF-DEFENSE
    Appellant next contends the trial court erred in refusing
    to instruct the jury on self-defense. We disagree.
    "Self-defense is an affirmative defense which the accused must
    prove by introducing sufficient evidence to raise a reasonable
    doubt about his guilt." Smith v. Commonwealth, 17 Va. App. 68,
    71, 435 S.E.2d 414, 416 (1993) (citing McGhee v. Commonwealth,
    219 Va. 560, 562, 248 S.E.2d 808, 810 (1978); Yarborough v.
    Commonwealth, 217 Va. 971, 979, 234 S.E.2d 286, 292 (1977)).
    "[A] person assaulted while in the discharge
    of a lawful act, and reasonably apprehending
    that his assailant will do him bodily harm,
    has the right to repel the assault by all
    the force he deems necessary, and is not
    compelled to retreat from his assailant, but

    may, in turn, become the assailant,
    inflicting bodily wounds until his person is
    out of danger."
    Dodson v. Commonwealth, 159 Va. 976, 979, 167 S.E. 260, 260
    (1933) (quoting Jackson's Case, 96 Va. 107, 30 S.E. 452 (1898))."


    I would also like to add this from the president of VCDL.

    "It's covered in common law and case law in VA. We are a stand your ground state (you can stand your ground anywhere where you can legally be). Only if you are part of the problem must you retreat."






    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?

    Ditto for me too. Even the waitress said she was happy to have us open carry there, as it made her feel safer.



    SouthernBoy,

    Thanks for the reference.
