Greetings from Arridzona!

It's nice to know that it's okay to OC in and around B'ham, next time I'm up there visiting family, I'll be carrying as well!
I'll also try to make one of your get togethers, it sounds like fun.

Keep up the good work and education.

It's a dry heat...just as bloody hot. Coffee at Starbucks sundays at 1000

An armed female citizen fended off a gentleman who was breaking into her house last night in Whatcom county. His condition was not being released yet as he is being treated for gunshot wounds............ Why do you carry IN the house?

My Sweet Baboo was reading the "comments" after the Bellingham paper reported on this. Some were pro, some were poor victim(not the girl), and some mentioned Open Carry. It had no relevance , but someone commented that it would be a deterant . Others commented that OC was illegle, yada yada I dont know anything about it but I can comment in the paper stuff. People out there think it is not legal to do what we do.

Other than that Mrs Lincoln, How was the play? Well, came in contact with a bunch of new folks at the dog park the last few days. Everyone was calm. If anyone was not and asked about me, I guess I pass muster as the harmless old guy that plays with dogs (and incidentally, just happens to wear a weapon for self protection). I do not mind appearing harmless...........it's good cover

Defending yourself can be traumatic, I wonder if there is a way we can show this woman she did what was right and we support her.

That is a really good idea but would need to be handled VERY delicately. If anyone knows her or knows a family member, an exploratory communication might be in order. She is likely to need some counseling and maybe we could chip in to help pay for that, was well as thank her.

Huh. I probably could have been on the way. I was sitting around doing nothing. Where were you on the way to? Is there a regular meet about which I missed the post? Did someone not want me there? :(

I was hoping you would make it today. We have been meeting regularly at Starbucks Bakerview Sundays at 1000.

Since it was only John and I yesterday we sat in the leather chairs and talked for almost 4 hrs. People came people went.
