Let me know if you encounter and problems with the integration.
Thank you John.
Contra Costa Open Carry on Facebook
I won't be using it, since I prefer to keep internet activities separate, but it's a good idea!
Thanks John, will be looking for it.
Is there a way to have Publish to Facebook autochecked?
No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. Thomas Jefferson (1776)
If you go into a store, with a gun, and rob it, you have forfeited your right to not get shot - Joe Deters, Hamilton County (Cincinnati) Prosecutor
I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians. - George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)
I finally got rid of my facebook. However, even when I had it, I kept it very separate from other internet activities.

Yeah, I don't like this trend, which seems to be popping up on forums and blogs. I don't care if anyone else does it, but I sure won't. Facebook is already impossible to keep up with, with just a couple hundred friends. As an active participant on multiple forums, I can't see adding all that traffic. Nor would I add to my FB friends' traffic by slamming them with all my forum comments.
I'm not concerned with anonymity; I've been using my real name on the internet since 1995. There are just certain venues and protocols that don't need to be blended.
I would love to see a "like" or "approve" feature, seperate from linking to your facebook account. This way, you wouldn't have to quote someone with a +1, especially if you're a day or two late into the discussion.
I also try and keep internet activities seperate, and don't see the need for Facebook to be a part of absolutly everything.
Facebook = the most intrusive site I ever joined. I unsubscribed and had my account deleted. There is a way to have your account deleted. It is not advertised by Facebook. I found it through Leo Notemboom's site.
Edit: I began hearing from people I had never heard of. "Will you be my friend." What could have been good, turned into a headache.
Plus: Facebook is intrusive on your privacy.

I'm scheduled for my CCW training in 6 weeks, but want to know more about open carry option for use now, and after I get my permit. What I don't understand, is if I have my handgun carried openly ( in a paddle holster with the entire firearm visible on my hip), do I run the risk of breaking the law should i find myself partially conceling my weapon when I sit? How about if part of my shirt were to come untucked and cover part of the grip?
I love the idea of OC and am obsessively responsible. So I want to be sure on this and haven't found any legal direction such as "open carry is considered X, and is permitted only when the firearm is X % visible at all times" etc.
This may be a stupid question so sorry if it's not what you normally discuss on this forum. I just don't know what I don't know and would appreciate any advice. Thanks, John/...

facebook is pretty cool if you take the time to learn how to use it.
if someone wants to "friend" me that IDK I don't have to, just like if I meet someone in a coffee shop-if I want to be their friend I might or might not-no biggie
Can someone tell me how to fix that annoying link? The "Like" link causes the entire page to jump up and down one in every time it changes.

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniencies attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." -- Thomas Jefferson
Like everything else in life FB is what you make of it. I use it as a tool, for my own reasons and in my own way. It is not intrusive, not time consuming and my life does not revolve around it.
They're in it for the money, folks, and when people batten down the security hatches so their personal information cannot be seen by anyone other than their friends, FB doesn't make any money selling that information to third party companies. There's a reason FB changed it's security options in January and again just yesterday -- it shakes up the profiles, exposing loads of previously-hidden personal information. Unless one stays on top of it, of course. Even then...
Given the nature of this website, most of our members are strongly opposed to even the possibility of a security leak.
