    Just ran across this... what do you fellow OCers think. Is Alan Gottlieb anti OC?

    But, on the other hand, the white house seems to at least accept OC:

    Things certainly are strange
    Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

    "Ed Donovan, a spokesman for the Secret Service, said incidents of firearms being carried outside presidential events are a "relatively new phenomenon." But he said the president's safety is not being jeopardized.

    "We're well aware of the subjects that are showing up at these events with firearms," he said. "We work closely with local law enforcement to make sure that their very strict laws on gun permits are administered. These people weren't ticketed for events and wouldn't have been allowed inside and weren't in a position outside to offer a threat." The immediate area occupied by Obama on such trips is considered a federal site where weapons are not permitted, Donovan said."

    It really surprised me... I consider Gottlieb one of the few who seems to take a consistently strong "pro 2A" stance. I think he may have let his personal view intrude into his organization's stance on the issue.
