Activism? I say go for it. It's going to be a use it or loose it ordeal in the end anyway. Public displays are good IMO....maybe like shock treatment. Something or somebody has to light the fire under those concerned with this country as a whole and freedoms granted. The next generation will give a damn less than this generation if this generation doesn't make a move. They'll figure this wasn't important enough for us to do so why follow through? We've been killing ourselves for decades over this and yet it's still difficult for many to accept it now when it's bestowed. Just a small clue about government thinking.........they wanted it....asked for it....got it....and did nothing. Therefore we shall take away. The Russians were terrified of Rambo and they were simply movies. How about the UN fearing Oklahoma instead of the United States as a force to be reckoned with? Time to support your team...or go underground in secrecy and cover your own assets. Public gatherings of the righteous give notice to those who would do evil. It's time to take back the streets of America when some law enforcement is either on the take or hands tied due to budget cuts. (makes the news every day now). Who's going to police America in the future? You and me....might as well make your presence known now. May be the last chance to increase our forces.
This Saturday the 21st in Northport, Alabama we're having Alabama's state wide Open Carry Meeting. Check out ALOC.info or Alabama open carry on facebook. I will try to post a bunch of photos.
OC meet ups are good for the movement. I think we should have more of them. The more the jumpy little sheep like Hoplaphobes out there see that a gun is just a tool and just because someone is wearing one openly and doesn't have the magical badge upon their chest, doesn't make them a bad guy or an evil person. Openly carried side arms were at one time the norm in this country. Sadly that isn't the case now and leek where this country is now. And yes, I do believe that there is a correlation between the two.
