    This is great news!!!! The Deeds/Obama event will be at a public venue which is not a K-12 school......so we can ope carry while we waive pro gun signs .

    Yeah, I know we can't get into the secure area, but We will be seen and I think we will get media attention.

    TPMDC

    Obama, Deeds Choose Norfolk For Rally Tuesday
    Christina Bellantoni | October 21, 2009, 11:44AM

    TPMDC has learned President Obama will campaign with gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds (D-VA) at Old Dominion University in Norfolk next Tuesday.

    The campaign announced Friday that Obama would be hitting the trail with a to-be-determined location. Michelle Obama did an event at ODU last fall to court military families.

    Turnout is critical in Virginia with Deeds so far behind in the polls and less than two weeks to go before the election.

    The presidential rally in Norfolk is a double whammy that allows the team to reach both young college voters and black voters, demographic groups that helped Obama win big in Virginia last fall.

    It also helps Deeds in optics since some wondered if Obama would just cross the Potomac for a short hop.

    It will be at the Ted Constant Convocation Center. I know this place, been there often. Lots of opportunity for up close open carrying.

    Why can't you open carry on a public street, not part of the Campus?

    While it is VDOT owned, I'm sure ODU would put up a fuss and I can't afford to be expelled.:shock:

    I don't recall there being a provision in their rules that allows ODU to punish you for participating in citizen activities taking place on public property.

    Sounds like a rights violation just waiting for someone to jump all over should such actions on ODU's part occur.

    It is called the professor swat. It is administered to politically incorect students to try to make them conform to their professors warped view of the world.

    So you have not learned anything from the Danbus :^). I would enjoin anyone to arrest me for such, as Danbus would say, "I could use the money". :^).

    I thought the Big O and the dems were distancing themselves from Deeds since they figure he was going to be the first big backlash to the O.

    As this seems to be a separate OCDO vice VCDL event and nobody chimed in with an answer, I guess not.

    Is there somebody planning to show up who has a roll of GSL stickers that they can bring?

    At the risk of being condemned to Hankland...I'm not sure this is one VCDL wants to chance.

    It is called FREE SPEECH--and universities are supposed to encourage free thought. Once you are off campus, they have no control over you. If they expel you for exercising your Constitutional rights--then you sue. They cannot interfere with the free expression of rights once you are off their property and on a public street.

    Just remember--if you don't use it, you will eventually lose it

    They can only push you around as long as you let them. That is what lawsuits are for after all...

    Definitely not speaking for VCDL - only my own opinion.

    I do not see anything to be gained by our attendance. Why galvanize any antis and garner negative press when Deed's campaign is already in the tank? I prefer in this case to let the election send my message.

    We have many battles yet to be fought - just don't think this one will have any positive return. I'd really prefer that nobody came to their party - an empty room.

    Grape - imagining that no one will attend their party is like them believing that restricting the sale and ownership of firearms will solve crime problems - it will never happen.

    And to think the antis are not galvanized already? Really...and negative press, c'mon man! The anti's hate us and so does the press. They can twist and turn this anyway they wish but when dozens, or many times hundreds, of law abiding gun owners show up at a rally the message is clear.

    Your decision is yours - I will take every imaginable opportunity I am presented with. Ruthless and without compromise...that is how we will win.

    I've heard PVC say it so many times ... "We have a right to defend ourselves anywhere we can legally be."

    1. The election isn't over until it's over. Remember 2000?

    2. Separate issue is that the anti's and MSNBC made a big deal saying we didn't have a right to carry near a POTUS event, so if we all of a sudden stop showing up now, they can and will claim a victory on that point.

    That's my .02
