    While a couple of people announce their departures or withdrawals from the movement, I want to proudly announce I'm here to stay amongst the growing diversity.

    I believe exercising and supporting others' lawful exercise of the right to keep and bear arms is far more important than my differences with others in how I carry, where I carry, or what I carry.

    I believe the diversity of peaceable and lawful carry, and firearms being carried, is a thing to be celebrated.

    I believe the problems occurring with regard to such diversity are instigated by civilians or police with ill will or ignorance, NOT the peaceable and lawful open carriers themselves.

    I believe it is wrong to blame the victim of others' ill will or ignorance and neither is it right to blame the victim for crimes against them.

    I believe it is far more important to defend against the enemies of what, where, or how we lawfully carry than to join them. Long arm open carry isn't "acceptable" to everyone? Remember that handgun open carry isn't "acceptable" to everyone, but we exercise it rather than lose it. Remember that lawful concealed carry isn't "acceptable" to everyone, but we exercise it rather than lose it. Remember that owning guns isn't "acceptable" to everyone, but we exercise it rather than lose it.

    I'm here to stay.

    I am NOT going anywhere! I am sorry to see others leaving but with growth there will always be losses.

    I have seen this in every organization I have been involved in.

    My final comment is grow a thicker skin folks it is just the inter-webs where everyone is an expert!

    I am going to have a job within 2 weeks so I am not going to be on here as much as I have been, But I will still be on here when I have the chance. I am disappointed that people are leaving, I have got into arguments with others, But I haven`t left. I support OC, And I will ALLWAYS be a supporter.



    Your Boy Is Here To Stay, IWON`T be going anywhere soon.

    I don't post much anymore, but I'm here to stay also.

    Furthermore, I want to point out that an assault rifle requires either burst fire or full auto to be called an assault rifle. Calling it an assault rifle is damaging to gun owners because the sheep get all emotional when they hear certain words. Hmph. /rant

    I carry to defend myself, my family, and my community.

    I do not presume that I have any right to tellothers HOW or WHAT to carry, as long as they carry lawfully.

    As long as there are people here that support the rights of ALL lawful carriers, I will be proud to be a part of this community.

    Peace and goodwill to you all.

    As I signed up, with many names that were already taken, Gort was available.

    The day the earth stood still? the name and phrase.

    Any way's I been here for a while, I don't post as often as I should mostly to fend off flame wars but I am here and I will post when and where I think it is needed.

    I my friends will hold my ground here at moc and ocdo until the final draw and will contribute what I can (it may not be much) and will support all forms of oc as well as respect all opinion's (tho I may add my own).

    I'm not going anywhere...
