    Funny out of all the news stories I have read/seen, all the felons had it concealed. Most felons I don't think even bother with holsters at all.

  3. Good points. I share most of your views. Open carry causes all sorts of people to over react, while concealed carry doesn't have any deterrent value. A quandary, to be sure. I still am struggling with it. But one thing is clear: the right to do so shall not be infringed.

    Open carry causes all sorts of people to over react? it does? Maybe my holster or firearm is defective, it doesn't cause anyone to over react.

  6. Hi,I'm new here but not new to seeing people open carry. When my son turns 18 I can gift his sidearm and he can legally open carry( in the Common Wealth of Virginia). I myself will also open carry and have a concealed weapon on top of that. I have talked with a couple of people who already do the same as well. I personally am willing to deal with the possible legal hassles that will arise from an incident of personal protection as opposed to being helpless to defend my loved ones. I am willing to do whatever it takes to ensure their safety!

    The unfortunate reality is that a very large number of our military personnel voted for the current president.

    You are only counting the citizens who actually voted.
    And now their pay and benefits are quickly decreasing, not to mention the entire size of the military.

    I wouldn't need to start asking, since I'm around them on a daily basis. Since retiring from the military I've been working an almost non stop string of DOD contracts. I doubt NavyLCDR would need to start asking either. Guys like us don't typically stray far from our military roots, so we're well aware of the political sentiment in the military. I don't know who you asked or where you asked, but NavyLCDR is absolutely correct. The military is heavily conservative, and the majority would not be Obama supporters. It may be true however that he garnered the highest percentage of the military vote for a liberal in quite some time. Even many military members fell prey to the ill advised theory of voting for someone simply due to the color of their skin. It wouldn't have been the majority of the overall military vote though. The military hasn't become that liberal, at least not yet.

    So true. That's why the liberal states try so hard not to count their vote.

    Where did you obtain this information? Did AAFES post a sign saying it was a bestseller? I would be willing to bet, based on my 30+ years of experience with AAFES, that they bought too many books of that title and are trying to fabricate a buzz about it.

    I know some officers voted Obama, I even found my boss's name on a contributor list published on the internet. You wouldn't know talking to her that she supported the Kenyan, but she did in secret.
