    Exclamation Changes to the Open Carry forum

    When we originally opened this forum, I added a notation that this was not the place to "debate the virtues of open carry", essentially making it a protected forum. I have, since then, debated whether this was the right thing to do since we did not place any restrictions on other forums.

    Open carry is a controversial subject, particularly when those that do OC do so specifically to garner attention to the practice. While we still discourage arguments over this topic, we will no longer offer "protection" for those who's practices invoke controversy. We now all stand on even ground but we will not hesitate to issue infractions for those that cross the line in comments and rebuttals.

    If you can accept these changes, we will continue to welcome you to this forum. If not, there is another forum out there that may be more to your liking....

    Sometimes I believe OC and CC are two entirely different animals. It should be interesting. I rarely entire OC discussions.
    May we never forget those in uniform who protect us night and day in lands far away. And those in all wars who paid the supreme sacrifice in defense of our country. May God Bless our Troops and First Responders.

    Thanks Bumper! Everyone should play with the same rules. (I always kind of wondered about the restriction myself)

    No matter what side of the issue you fall on, make no mistake that I intend to still watch this forum very closely. Keep things civil and inline, and there will be no issues.

    Very enlightened view on the topic Bumper, and those that bring gas to a fire, may get burend occasionally. Part of the cost of doing business. Thanks for keeping this one of the best gun forums out there.

    Excellent.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Sounds fair enough. Discussion is good, attacks are not. We all have our likes and dislikes; we are individuals. We make our choices, whether to OC or CC is only one of them.

    Works for me. I agree with those above, assuming civility abounds, this should make this forum even better. I don't OC, but I sure as heck want the option under the law.

    Sounds good to me. I just hope every thread doesn't become the same stale debate for and against.
