    Thumbs up

    I carried when I voted, does that count?
    My polling place is a Knights of Colombus hall and OC is OK here in Louisiana. I Always OC these days and the last two times I voted on one said a thing about me being armed.

    I voted wearing my NRA cap and had no issues at all. It was all smiles and friendly chatter. I was in and out in 3 minutes tops. I was dressed as shown above but wearing my NRA hat. The shirt is my shirt.

    Congradulations on voting. Also KUDOS for taking ALL of your rights with you into the voting booth.

    Here in NC, many counties ban firearms in ANY buildings with municipal or county offices. y county is one of them. So I could not carry while voting, even though my polling place was a fire station, and NOT a "sensitive building" as it contains no police, courts, or jails.

    But I DID pick up two "I Voted" stickers--one for each of my Serpa holsers. One for the Glock, and one for the 1911, and I will wear them proudly at the range, while OCing everywhere else, and while going to OC-related events.

    I envy you folks who live in states where the government actually trusts law abiding citizens to carry in government buildings. Here in NC, they are afraid of armed law-abiding citizens...

    OH man! I didn't even think of putting the "I voted" sticker on my holster. Good idea, all!
