    If OC was the only legal choice, would you?

    This is really for the CC'ers here. If open carry we're the only legal way to carry a weapon, would you still carry? Why or why not?

    I prefer CC myself, but I would OC if it was my only option. I still do on my property and at the repair shop where I work. A gun on the hip is better than none at all. Maybe it would help promote better OC etiquette.

    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people. I'm saying remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    Yes, and without a moment of hesitation. And I am a CC'er.

    I have no issues with OC. I don't do it because 1) I like to go unnoticed and 2) it would require me to do something different from what I do now.

    One reason is rational and another is a personality fault. You choose.

    In a heartbeat.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Since this was primarily for the CC'ers I'm probably interjecting myself needlessly. I have no problem openly carrying; in fact I and about 70 others did so en masse at the Georgia State Capitol last Monday, the 24th. We gave a warm Southern welcome to Mayor Bloomberg's MAIG/NoMoreNames bus tour. AK's, AR', Mosins, muskets and FN's, oh my.

    Unfortunately, it seems that da Mayor's bus had a convenient break down and couldn't make it to the reception.

    Awesome! This one slipped by me! Got to peek in on my native brethren more often!

    Great, that would mean carrying any pistol I own easy as pie.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    For my first 48 years, OC was the only legal option in Ohio, and was something I never did. I doubt if I would do it in the future, either.

    Yes, but I would be non-stop and unrelenting with my weapon retention skills training.

    Of course! I already OC sometimes, even with the option of CCing.
