    I'm not sure I ever spent time poring over the rules, either. However, to me, it has been pretty clear since about the second week that this wasn't an OC forum, but a CC one. The implied focus is almost palpable! There are many issues unique to each, and things would get schlurmy pretty quick if we lost our focus.

    Personally, I like "defensive carry"...because, in my simple mind, that is what it is all about...whether CC or OC. How to defend and be defensive...kudos to this site for making it educational is so many ways.

    You stole my thunder. It is "one of those topics" that just seem to always get heated. I would prefer it to be otherwise, but unfortunately, it does. Above all else, we try to keep the forum civil and if it takes limiting OC discussions to make that happen, we will. Those that are marginally specific to OC are left to run without any action on our part, but when they start going the way of most, they are closed and or removed. Period.

    Couldn't have said it better.

    It's a matter of preference and really people, we are adults...we should respect each others opinions...regardless.

    As far as I can see in the short time I've been here, the OC cited above could be replaced with a number of subjects.

    I like that.

    I too have been on many forums, list serves, etc that go to the extremes -- from banning any mention of certain subjects to major flame wars .

    You folk do a good job of allowing open discussion while maintaining civility.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
