    Oakland Press Article

    I have to give props to Stainless1911 and Army74 for bringing this article to light in another forum.

    http://www.theoaklandpress.com/artic...3445471732.txt

    Really an awesome article IMHO!

    Thanks. And yes, it was a great article. OC making a front page mention of OC in the Sunday Oakland Press is no joke. This really really helps our position.

    Good article.

    One thing that has finally come clear to me is that I'm completely sick of hearing about Open Carry being compared to the "wild west".

    I bet every one of these people that makes said comparison think that they are both "original" and "deep". Like they were the first one to draw a connection and that that the image carried in the minds of the populace concerning the "wild west" is based in at least as much fact as fiction. (which it's not)

    Irritating.

    Its not that deep. WWA is a CC class, not an OC class.

    Thinking that by "Wild West" people are referring to indiscriminate shootings and large numbers of people killed by gunfire, the "Wild West" could easily be applied to places where people are barred from being able to adequately defend themselves... like Chicago and Washington D.C. (BTW, the "Wild West" was much safer than the cities listed here)
    So, what we are really trying to do is remove the modern-day "Wild West" from society.

    Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

    Picked up the article on Sunday, very nice exposure! Wish there was a little more info on OC but you can't beat the front page!
