I would agree with this, but only if the person had never attended a rally prior to having a CC permit b/c they feared for their safety. If you're only going b/c NOW you have a weapon and feel safer, you probably shouldnt... but if you've gone in the past and the only difference is now you're allowed to CC, then I say go ahead.Depending on the event, it's likely illegal to cc. Even if it is allowed (never seen that yet), you're unnecessarily putting yourself in a situation that drastically increases the odds that you'll have to present. I liken this to choosing to cc and take a stroll through a bad part of town, just because you can.
i have got to say that this is about the most off based post i have read as a reason for not carrying anywhere...Okay, I've got to say it - and no disrespect intended towards those that carry to biker events, but I firmly believe that carrying to a biker event is an intensely bad idea.
First, let me establish that I love my Harley. I've had a motorcycle since I was 12 years old, and have more miles behind handlebars than behind a steering wheel by far. I love to ride.
Now having said that, I will never attend another 'biker rally'. There are generally four types there; (a) True 1%ers - these are the bad guys that I try to avoid, and why I cc. (b) Posers who want to look like 1%ers, and can generally be even more dangerous in their desire to prove themselves to be 'tough'. (c) Sheep in the most extreme sense in that they are there to behold the wonder and excitement of being around all of these unsavory individuals. (d) Gentlemen riding clubs - these are generally good and decent people, who's company I genuinely enjoy. But now add a bunch of alcohol (and other stuff) to the event...
Hence, at least half (3/4 for me) of these folks are to be avoided. CC'ing to an event like this is the equivalent of cc'ing in a bar, late at night. Depending on the event, it's likely illegal to cc. Even if it is allowed (never seen that yet), you're unnecessarily putting yourself in a situation that drastically increases the odds that you'll have to present. I liken this to choosing to cc and take a stroll through a bad part of town, just because you can.
Again, I apologize if I've stepped on toes here. I'm not looking to scold anyone, and understand that we're all big boys and girls here. I just feel strongly on this one, and hope you stay safe.
county fair and booze...let me guess...redneck?Motorcycle rally and booze...simply unbelievable. Let me guess...Harley Davidson?
