Trouble is that this anti-chp thing is starting to sound like hunters who didn't care what happened to handguns as long as their rifles and shotguns were safe. Or self-defense carriers who don't care what happens to hunters.
We don't want to pit OCers against CCers. We are all in this together.
Some like to CC, but don't like to OC. Others don't like to CC, but like to OC.
I believe CCers would jump up to defend OCers if someone tried to say they couldn't carry openly in restaurants any more. And I would hope OCers are standing up for CCers right to carry in restaurants.
We are all proud Americans who have different interests in firearms.
VCDL is trying to keep the tent in each part of the law as large as possible. I can give example after example:
The glovebox bill helps OCers, but does NOTHING for CCers - VCDL supports it.
The restaurant ban bill helps CCers, but doesn't do anything for OCers - VCDL supports it.
The, now dead, K-12 felony reduced to misdemeanor helped both OC and CCers - it was put in for VCDL.
Let's not break into little splinter groups. Let's strive whenever possible to move the ball forward for everyone, but if not possible, to move it as far forward as we can for whatever subset of gun owners we can.
Hunters, target shooters, self-defense carriers, handgun or rifle or shotgun owners, we need to hang together or we shall most certainly hang alone.
