Truth be told, just a few years ago I couldn’t have cared less about may issue or no issue states. It didn’t affect me so screw all those commie bastards.
I didn’t even care enough about my own Right to carry concealed until I was 35 years old. But when I reflect; I’ve been shooting since age 6, started carrying openly at age 12(rifle, duh) saved my own life with the gun I was carrying at age 14 and have been eligible for an Oregon CHL since age 21, it still took me another decade and a half to actually do it. I should note that Barbarian gnawed on my ear for a full 5 years to get my ass off the couch and pony up the cash and sit through an afternoon class to actually get it. At one point, he even offered to front the cost if I would commit to the training class. I turned him down repeatedly.
I can’t honestly say that I was a Fudd, but I just wasn’t following what our congress critters were doing.
I was ignorant.
Well, I consider myself very well informed about Oregon Law concerning both concealed carry and open carry and somewhat less than ignorant about matters in the other 49 states.
Constitutional carry is way cool. Reciprocity is way cool. For those in the last two states that don’t have any form of CCW, you’re doing research about crap the rest of us take for granted.
That’s what the politicos need to hear. We have had this for a long time now. It’s time for you to join the union.
Together we stand, divided we fall.
