Sorry I haven't been on in a while. I wanted to share a story with you from about 2 weeks ago at a 9-12 Tea Party in Greensburg, PA. I had an idea of OCing my M4 much like the gentleman in Arizona did at an Obama rally. It is legal to carry loaded rifles on your person in pubic in PA. So I took advantage of that right and took my M4 to this Tea Party.

I saw a few other OCers (handguns only), and there was a handful of people like 6 or 7 with M4's, M16's etc... one guy had an M1 Garand, another had a Mauser. We had the opportunity to educate some folks who were concealing. They asked us about why we were open carrying. We explained the lack of a law prohibiting OC of firearms in the state, therefore it is default legal. We also explained that no where on a PA license to carry firearms does it say concealed. We handed out flyers explaining the legalities of carry in the state. One guy even said "well hell, if I had known that..." as he pulled his shirt up over his concealed handgun.

We managed to educate MANY firearm owners about the correct laws in the state, and corrected a lot of the misinformation out there that some sheriffs like to spread.

Anyway... on with the pictures:

I'm in the red shirt.


A few of us from PAFOA.


Me with my bible and gun :smile:


One of the booths at the rally.


Clinging to guns and religion... don't worry, my M4 was not pointed at their feet.


And last, but not least... me, my shirt, and my 1911 on my 3 after the event getting ready to head off for lunch.

And next on the 6 o'clock news, dozens of people show up armed to a local teaparty and noone was injured. Go figure.:yup: Nice pics! I've been trying to find one of the "illegal in 51 countries" shirts in my size. Love that one.

I almost didn't recognize Mtn Jack with the beard. Last time I saw him was at his trial and he was all clean shaven and in his Sunday best.

Glad to hear everything went well.

Yup. Another example of upstanding people standing up for what's right and what they believe in ... and not doing anyone any harm in the process. Kudos, indeed. :bier:

Bravo Zulu Sir!!! Very well done!

Cling to that bible and to those guns just as I am. You all look like the kind of people I would want to socialize with. The salt of the Earth and the very same people that the scum er....politicians in Washington disdain so vehemently these days.

Being disliked by a politician is about as high an honor as one can achieve in this country now a days.

Imagine ... At each and every outing that families attend, imagine 100% of them armed with CHL (probably multiply-armed) openly, and ~50% or more of them armed with a carbine. Imagine how relatively safe it would be, from the viewpoint of the kids, and how relatively dangerous it would seem, from the perspective of any onlooking criminals. I truly hope we get there, to where bringing one's firearms is as common as selecting between the green and blue shirts. It should be a non-event, and common. If only.

You get a clear indication of how vast the gulf is between us and many of the elected autocrats when you have a discussion on the term "Patriot." (I've had a few.) If you see the eyes widening, pulse quickening and the politico-chatter start to fire up, you know you're face to face with one of them, one of the died-in-the-wool autocrats who fears people who have such a clear, simple and practical view of patriotism. It would be best if the autocrats get the train back on the rails. Best if we help them do it properly. Best if it's done soon. Best for the People. :yup:
