    I think there's something wrong with the link, Ed. It looks like an old evite from September:


    Host: Ed Location: Buffalo Wing Factory - Sterling
    22034 Shaw Rd
    Sterling, VA 20164 US
    View Map
    When: Tuesday, September 14, 7:00PM


    EDIT: the link on your facebook event is the right one (same as the evite emails I received) but the one above in your OP is showing as one I attended in September.

    I'd love to, but the family and I are helping a scout with his Eagle project that afternoon. Have fun!

    Nope.. this was Sylvain and Pierre. They hear of another crew in the US but did not know what they were doing or want story. My guys worked for some news magazine type show. The interview focused on guns, ownership and rights, open and concealed carry, etc. I think it went pretty well. Here is a link to the album: http://picasaweb.google.com/vagunrig...ewEdAndFriends

    It is indeed interesting the increased attention that VCDL, OCDO and other groups are presently getting from Europe - English magazine and French media most recently.

    The group that came through Richmond left with a month worth of reading, arm loads of souvenirs, went to the range and left with a completely different perspective than that with which they arrived, I think. A very warm and personable group, though very professional.

    I asked them what made him come HERE and to ME. He said he wanted to do a story on guns/gunowners/carry. and when he Google'd those things my name came up more than once so he contacted me. Until today, he had never heard of VCDL, OCDO or GOA.. he had only heard of the NRA. They left with a GSL magnet, challenge coin, info about VCDL and each a pocket copy of the US Constitution.

    Keep spreading the word - it is fun watching the flicker of understanding light up in their eyes. Maybe one day the people in the "old countries" will enjoy the same rights we do.

    Spreading the good word will come back home to the USA and Virginia even as it is seen in Europe.

    Most people don't know my face, but they sure do recognize my six from all of those "hip" shots.

    had a blast today...it was definitely a great experience hearing new opinions, discussing carry rights and law, and enlightening the unenlightened. i equally enjoyed providing some behind the scenes photography for Ed and the crew.

    can't wait to do it again!

    Would you happen to have a link for the video? Why no pictures of the guns?

    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    I think a snowball has a better chance in hell than that does of coming to pass.

    Good job, folks.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    They say the video won't be out till spring.. then will then send me a DVD. They took planty of video of guns (each time someone came in, got up, or left). But the still cameraman with us was also an OCDO member and was just taking candid shots of the interview.. I don't think it came to him (or to me for that matter) to take pics of the guns.. quite frankly.. the food, conversation and company were so good.. I think we simply forgot.

    Pretty much what it was, just candids. The film crew got some gun footage because they specifically asked folks to show them. I tried to stay in the background, and most people were seated where no guns were really clearly visible (and many people CCed or wore jackets/vests because it was quite cold).

    I guess if gun pr0n is what y'all want, next time you'll get it. Just be careful what you wish for :-P
