    NC OC experience reports

    Why do they do this? Last week my wife and I ate at El Patron in Aberdeen. I OCd a Taurus. I noticed another couple with the man OCing a Glock. We left about the same time, and once outside I asked which model he had. He proceeded to unholster it to show me the various details...

    US Supreme Court: Gun Licensing Fees Are Unconstitutional

    Narrowly answered: The FFL is not the State, nor an actor thereof; he is a business, and is providing a service. As a 'tax', the transfer fee would need to be uniform for all businesses within a state. I suppose an argument may be made that since guns from an outside jurisdiction must be...

    NC OC experience reports

    Spent a good part of the day in Locust OCing the 1911. There was an Eggstravaganza at the town center, with egg hunts for kids and about a dozen stalls selling homemade items (daughter-in-law selling jewelry). One lady vendor was OCing a Taurus Slim. Inside the Ace hardware store was a gun...

    NC OC experience reports

    Some amusement while grocery shopping at Walmart today: A young black man was there with his 5 children. The two young boys asked Is that a real gun? Yes. Do you have bullets? Yes Are you a policeman? No Are you going to shoot someone? I hope not. Why do you have it? So I can shoot back...

    Stand Your Ground (35 States) vs. Duty to Retreat (15 States). Ohio flips. E. Volokh at The Volokh Conspiracy

    Per Ohio Gun Owners email this afternoon, the Ohio Senate president, Larry Obhof, has so far refused to send the bill to the governor. Obhof is being considered for a judgeship and does not want the governor to be on record as anti-gun going into the midterm election season.

    NC OC experience reports

    Decided on Subway sandwiches for supper tonight, so I stopped by our local place on the way home. At the entrance, a sign was posted with Subways's "request" that customers not OC, even in states where OC is legal. I pondered that for just a moment, then decided that I was hungry, I like...

    Open Carry While Running?

    Don't you just hate auto-fill (practice). If it is a small gun, secure it to an arm with tape or Ace bandage. Feeling bold? Carry it holstered in your hand.

    Carrying while wearing a mask??

    "Program Attorneys" are the ones in each state that members can call for legal assistance, including answers. Memberships are state based and you are issued a card with the name and number of the attorney to contact if needed.

    NC's nefarious Legislature at it again...

    This is a pared down version of the bill she introduced in May 2019 (Gun Violence Prevention Act https://webservices.ncleg.gov/ViewBillDocument/2019/289/0/DRH10046-ML-28). That one was so all-inclusive that it went to "incarceration". Per the antis' plan, she is now working by incremental...

    NC OC experience reports

    Sounds a lot like Cross Creek mall in Fayetteville. Firestone is adjacent to the JC Penney wing. No signage at that entrance, unlike at the main entrance on the side between that wing and the former Sears section. The man with the empty holster either came in that way, or paid attention to...

    That might be worth a call to the program attorney in Washington.

    interesting msnbc poll on "gun carry in public"

    Only 46% say YES; with 1,502,000 or 3,280,000 respondents. 1,745,000 say No, it's too dangerous. 1% (33,000) say Only for self defense. Good luck finding the who/what/why for this.

    county owned, privately leased - ban carry?

    Pier Associates has leased the pier from the county for a continuing long term period. Since they leased it, rather than being contracted to operate it on behalf of the county, it is a case of 'their land, their rules'. If FL has something contrary in their law, lets hear from a FL resident...
