    I open carried at the Census Road Show today when it came to Norfolk at lunch time.

    The location was the Norfolk Workforce Redevelopment Center, which is preempted and cannot prohibit my entry for open carrying.

    The only sour look I got was from Mayor fraim in the parking lot. He definately saw my Sig 229 on my hip.

    Here is an article about the Census Road Show:

    The 2010 Census Road Tour is scheduled to stop today in Hampton Roads to promote awareness of this year’s count.

    Coming to town: a colorful van and trailer rig named “Founders” – in honor of the Founding Fathers, who made it mandatory for the nation to count heads every 10 years.

    The public is invited to drop by to learn more about the census and take home some free goodies.

    The rig will be in Norfolk from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Workforce Development Center, 201 E. Little Creek Road, and in Chesapeake from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Cuffee Library, 2019 Windy Road.


    BTW, the Census van and trailer wereparked intwo handicapped parking spaces.

    The closest one to me seems to be coming Friday March 5 from 10:00am - 2:00pm at York Fair Expo Center 332 Carlisle Avenue
    York, PA, 17404

    It is a bit of a drive but maybe I'll find my way there if not otherwise occupied. Would be nice if we had a group to give them something to count, eh?

    The census abusers must be comfortable with armed householders. I will certainly be armed and very resistant.

    When you receive your census remember, the Constitution only requires that you be counted - not to disclose how many flush toilets you own or if you have indoor plumbing or any other such nonsense. All of that is un-Constitutional and therefore does not have to be answered.

    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?
