Are there any OC get togethers in the Altus area I will be moving down that way within 60 days and I am used to carrying all the time up here in Washington. I lived in that area years ago. But they have gotten OC since then .
Hi everyone, how about some good food, good company and a short SDA refresher !? Join us at Apple Barrel Café Sunday September 14th at 2pm. Bring some friends and family with you. As always open carry, CC, or no carry welcome! Looking forward to seeing you there..-Eddie
When I first joined this site, we had a lunch meet once a month in the Oklahoma City area. Don't know what happened. I will not drive to tulsa for lunch. Nor anywhere else. I live in Oklahoma City, and that's where I stay.
Probably going to delete my account here shortly. Not much activity at all any more. Pointless looking in on it every day, and nothing's happening.
Why?Wally World? Are you serious? Haven't been in one of them crack houses in years. Not going to start today. In any event, I have to go to work here shortly. Work at Tinker. Can't OC there. Can't carry at all. LOL
I'm not an organizer. The guys who used to set up these luncheons were the guys who started the whole OC thing rolling. They seem to have vanished, or they go to Tulsa all the time. Whatever. I'm not starting anything. I'm simply going to leave this site starting today.
I'm from Oklahoma, and I open carry daily. I don't need validation from others on a website. It would be nice to meet some like minded 2A advocates, but the majority of folks I encounter on a day to day basis don't mind or don't even notice.
Hell, I'll eat lunch with ya if you're still hungry lol
Haha no sir. I'm an OKC resident and have been most of my life. I've only seen one other OC'er since it became "legal" 4 years ago.sure you aren't one of the tulsa clan clob?
ya read cbxer's post... wont leave OKC and go nowhere else...ever...cuz that's where their staying...always!!
keep in touch when i pass through i will take you up on your lunch/early dinner offer...
One of the problems that has been plaguing the open carry movement is the lack of coordinated events that rally people together. There is a group I used to be a board member of but left when it was badly mismanaged. I did get word though big changed are happening within that group though and as such there may be an uptick in it again. I am hoping that there is a resurgence of Open carry because as strong as it was when it started poor coordination among groups has kind of starved off the movement here.
When there is a crisis of some magnitude threatened or real against our RKBA, people will flock to join pro groups on a state and national level. They will rush out to buy guns and ammo when the heat is turned up that they might lose them or have to register them. The more pressure the antis exert, the more people get involved and become activists.
When things are running relatively smoothly, people tend to become complacent. There is a danger there that can bite you in the tender parts.
We do need to operate our forums and organizations as effectively as possible. We also need to beat the drum and blow the bugle to keep the momentum moving forward AND constantly introducing newbies to our cause.
^ ^ ^ AND giving cites to the statute/law itself. The old adage of "trust, but confirm" applies. Point people in the right direction.
I saw it on the internet stinks as a defense in court.
See our Forum Rules #5:
5) CITE TO AUTHORITY: If you state a rule of law, it is incumbent upon you to try to cite, as best you can, to authority. Citing to authority, using links when available,is what makes OCDO so successful. An authority is a published source of law that can back your claim up - statute, ordinance, court case, newspaper article covering a legal issue, etc.
