    Exclamation Independence Day OC at Citywide Celebration: No MWAG Calls

    I OC'd today at the citywide celebration today in the city park. Bands were playing, there was food galore, kids were playing all over, and adults relaxing. My granddaughter, a three year old with few inhibitions, danced in front of an admiring crowd while I encouraged her. Firetruck rides, horse and buggy rides, necklace making, face painting and the like entertained us all as the afternoon wore on.

    It was too darn hot to wear a cover garment as per my norm, so I went without, in celebration of our state OC laws and as a symbolic gesture on our Independence Day. I felt OC particularly fitting given our legislatures poor track record this cycle. I am also using OC more, as an example of exercising our rights and accepting responsibility.

    I briefly spoke to our County Sheriff and his wife, who were enjoying the festivities.

    All was good. Small town America at its finest.

    Whoever calls in a OC 'MWAG' on Independence Day deserves Saturday detention on the US Constitution, namely the Bill of Rights.

    You mean to tell us no little kids went screaming to mommy. No little old ladies fainted at the sight of it? No BG shot you in the back and stole your gun? *shakes head in disbelief* What's this world coming to?

    Sounds like your day was more entertaining than mine was. I just relaxed at the house with my feet up.

    I think it is just fine to OC for the reason of exercising a right. I OC'ed also without incident.

    Hey! I saw a guy OC'ing the other day and tried to chase him down.......I was going to ask where he got his holster at, but my old legs don't work so well with all the holes in them!!! (Gotta love small towns..)

    We went over to some friends house for the 4th and I now wish I had OC'd. They wouldn't have cared and it would have been a very appropriate statement and reminder.

    Next year !

    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.
