    Open or not, there is a reason we carry. This could happen anywhere.

    Open Carry makes your firearm more accessible, but open carry or concealed, there is a reason to carry. I found this from Philly, I cant believe how the lawyer is trying to defend this. Thing is, this could happen anywhere, even Seattle, WA. And you always have to be prepared. As you watch the video, it comes to where this lady is left in shock in the middle of the bus not knowing what to do. This comes from people who get complaicent in life and decline to admit that if they stay out of bad areas then nothing will happen to them becuase there is no way bad stuff will come to them. I thought of Ruby as I watched this lady stand solidly still not knowing what to do and thought, "we need to see more ladies like Ruby who are armed and no how to use their firearm".

    Note: I highlighted the areas that make this an open carry, and Washington forum post, for those that would normally question, "Duh, wat haz dis dot NEting todo wit open carry or Y iz dis N duh Warshington 4um".

    If you voted for Obama to prove you are not a racist...
    what will you do now to prove you are not stupid?

    1 more reason I don't ride the bus. Other than getting the **** kicked out of me at the transit center and security watching you get owned.

    I enjoy taking the bus, and wish more people would. You can read a book, play a game, program, etc. It's cheaper than driving most of the time. The problem here is a lack of continual connectivity due to underutilization. It makes it nearly impossible to be responsible if I want to go to a bar via public transit, as the busses back to my house stop running by 9pm, and don't run on the weekend.

    Edit:
    And taking a bike isn't always fun, as there's a mile and a half hill climb to my house. I do it twice a week already, but my knees really have started to hate me recently.

    I have 2 friends that got DUIs on bicycles and one friend that got a DUI on his horse, later on my horse. So leaving the bars on a bike may not be a good idea.
