    Only Virginia Loves OC More Than Us

    I was just checking out the post counts for the various state-specific forums and only VA has more threads than us.

    Do you think that this is a good indicator of how well loved Open Carry is on a state by state basis, or do people from other states just not end up here?

    i say its a good indicator of which states are the most active,but many states have they're own forum,or have alot of open carriers that arent online alot,alaska comes to mind.

    Our Michigan forum seems to be slowing down a bit lately.

    If a state allows OC, and it is widely practiced without interference from law enforcement, why would they need to come looking for this forum?

    However... if that logic held true, why would Virginia be the busiest forum?

    As we found with the 2A March there are many folks that are all talk and will DO nothing when it comes to furthering rights....

    However I see no need to make the forums into a contest for who posts the most.
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    -Yes, this is part of the human condition. The many want to enjoy the fruits... and the glamor and praise... from the work done by the few. It has always been this way since the dawn of time in every human endeavor from digging a ditch to changing the world. There are those who champion OC during every moment of everything they do every day....... and there are those who, for one reason or another, do very little. Yet, every positive bit helps and to demean those who don't do as much as those who do the most.............. is an insult since every effort forward, regardless of how big or small, advances the cause

    Not to mention that once a person begins thinking that they are the only one's carrying the water....... shortly thereafter that person will feel used, begin to resent those who carry less water, lose interest, and set the bucket down. And then no water gets carried.


    However I see no need to make the forums into a contest for who posts the most.

    Anything that causes dissension amongst those who fight for OC.... is a win for those who fight against OC.

    Actually, in my not so humble opinion likely to cause some folks to get upset, threads like this one are nothing more than another example of the adolescent "mine is bigger than yours" silliness we should have all left behind in school.

    Sigh.... won't let me post inside a post unless I also post outside the post......
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    I have always looked at this, and wondered, but before you come out and make a statment like this please double check your "facts", Washington State has more posts and more threads than Michigan. So we are number three (#3) at least on OCDO.

    Did you hear 'em talkin' 'bout it on the radio
    Could your eyes believe the writing on the wall
    Did that voice inside you say I've heard it all before
    It's like Deja Vu all over again
