    I know I know but the way I look at it is once we solve all the issues in America with guns let's all go over there an help liberate my people.

    Add comments to the story! Let's make sure that pro-OC comments outnumber any anti comments (in addition to being more cerebral).

    WOHOOOO! We were the leading story. (I think that means we were the least important story, but I'll take what I can get)

    ETA: It's also the (current) most popular story on the website.
    There was a time that the pieces fit, but I watched them fall away, mildewed and smoldering, strangled by our coveting. I've done the math enough to know the dangers of our second guessing. Doomed to crumble, unless we grow and strengthen our communication. -Tool, "Schism"

    OMan the camera adds 20lbs. Soon as the link is on the CBS site I'm sure someone will post it.

    Just got a response from Kim too:


    Hey Jason,
    The story is about to air at 10pm. I can't upload the story on the web until it airs... So I'll try and do it tonight. Thanks!
    Kim

    Excellent video and report - left my thanks in comments.

    Appreciate the efforts of all involved - was a real kick seeing the holstered gun on the reporter.

    You know I didn't really read (other than like one line) or hear anything about the blood drive.

    Loved it, they could have cut me out of it though. The camera always adds 20 pounds to me.

    Everybody give Tim a hand. He did a great job organizing and putting the event together.

    As we laughed about before the event, ..dancing banana. :celebrate



    Wishing him a speedy recovery.

    Um, the reporter was open carrying and then transitioned to conceal carry - so, she has a permit to conceal??

    Hey everyone. Sorry I didn't get to finish the day with y'all. My left lung collapsed. It was a close call, but I'm home now. I had to go through the most painful surgery ever without being put to sleep. Now, under the doctors orders, off my feet for the next month. This is gonna suck.

    Anyway, I appreciate everyone that come out. Jonathon and I got the location put together close to the deadline but it worked out great. It wasn't a huge win for us but it was a success indeed. I hope some more people have started to realize what we're trying to do and decide to support their rights as well. Again, I wanted to thank everyone that came out and I can't wait for the next get together!

    BTW: Jonathon.... David.... I had to secure my weapon for the ambulance ride and one of you have my magazines. LOL Let me know how to get those back. LOL Thanks! -Tim
