This why I am glad Virginia has protected ranges. We have grandfathering clauses and a bill this year that would prevent the sound from being an issue as well.
I always maintain a clean cut appearance. When I deal with the politicians I always wear a nice suit or jacket and tie with slacks. I do not dress in camoflage except when hunting. When I work at the gun store I look more like a business professional than gun store employee. I don't wear a tie at the gun store, but a leather blazer which is part of my concealed carry wardrobe.
It is unfortunate that people are so judged by their appearance. Some of the most articulate people I know on firearms issues are ones who fit the stereotypical view from the anti-rights crowd. :frown:
I find it disturbing in the news release that the chair was insulting towards the citizens who came to the meeting. Unfortunately typical of the anti-rights crowd who railroads and insults anyone who opposes their view of things.
Hey, there is something about the dust in Arizona that makes me sick. If I go to Arizona for a vist I will have a flu like sickness that lasts for weeks. And another thing over here we can see what we breath and I like that, goes with the coffe shops and donuts. Take care.
As for appearances, well whenever I go do anything that has anything to do with guns where I'll have to interact with possible non owners, I try to wear my faculty polo shirt and teacher's name tag if I'm going to have to share my name anyway.
I realize that such is not the attire of most gun owners, and if it makes one person stop and reconsider their anti rights stance it'll be worth it.
