Off topic but needing to be said...........
So at 1 minute after midnight of this 17 year old's 18th birthday he will suddenly become.... acceptable
.... to all the nay saying adults because now he can legally open carry?
Never mind that this 17 year old is out there believing in, and working for, open carry.. the very same thing those nay saying adults are doing...
Never mind that this 17 year old has set up events and has learned a great deal about how to do it from the small mistakes he made setting up the Ponderosa event. The long gun showing up at the Ponderosa event was in no way any of this 17 year old's responsibility any more than it would have been for an "adult" who set up the event.
Never mind that many "adults" within the OC community never have set up an event and some don't go to those events anyway.
Yeah, let's just hammer on this 17 year old because... well... he's 17, wet behind the ears and learning as he goes. You know, just like we all did when we were 17.
For the record... Yooperlady, who is 65 years old, and I, almost 62 years old, have much faith in our youth who get off their arse and go out and do things to further gun rights. Mistakes and all.
A thought to ponder.... where will the next generation of OC'ers come from if we do not encourage the one coming up? You know... those teenagers?
