    New to the forum

    Hello,

    My name is Philip. I was introduced by forum member Aaron1124. I am his cousin. I am been open carrying a firearm for many years, and I am a proud supporter of our United States Constitution. I stand for Freedom and Liberty, and will continue to show my support for the open carry movement. I thank Aaron for introducing me to this site.

    I may be preaching to the quire on this one; but I consider myself very knowledgeable on firearm laws across the state. After spending some time browsing, it seems that most of you are very up to speed on the law, which is great. It's very common for people to ask about the legalities of a visibly, legally, holstered firearm. It brings me comfort knowing that I have educated dozens of gun owners on the legalities of open carry. I believe that this group plays a major role in the open carry movement becoming more mainstream, and more "socially acceptable".

    I look forward to chatting with all of you.

    Welcome to the forum always good to have those who love OC and spread the OC gospel.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Welcome. There is a nice group of people on this page. You should keep an eye out for gatherings that come up every month-or-so.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    We have a meet 'n greet the second Saturday of every month somewhere in Federal Way. There is a thread about it. We also just recently started a meet 'n greet in Lakewood the first Sunday of every month. There usually is a thread about it as well, just to remind people. And there are also spontaneous meets just whenever someone posts one. You are welcome to attend any and all. Good group of people, open, friendly, and knowledgeable. In case you haven't noticed already, the Washington forum is one of the more active ones. Oh, and BTW, Welcome!

    Hey, I AM of that religion and I still find those things disturbingly amusing (y'know, like a roadkill that's still twitching).

    And what better way to introduce the new guy than with one of our famous tangents

    I have to say, the OP is so lucky to be in Washington...very active OC group both online and in person.

    Here in Salt Lake, it seems to be pretty inactive.

    OP, you are going to enjoy this page very much. There are times it gets heated, but it all gets sorted out.

    LOL Nah. He signed up on my computer. He just moved, so it might take him a few days to get his computer and internet up and running.
