Haha, naw I'm kidding. I'm glad we can have a good laugh, especially on a forum like this! Lol!
So our top representative is a known socialist who can only promise 'change', the world assumes we are criminals because we are armed, and America is ready to fall apart because half of Americans don't know what it is to be
Might as well have some fun! Laugh it up!
Anyway, in this post I wanted to talk about this past Sunday, May 17th. I attended the service at Hockessin Baptist Church, with a holster on my right hip. Empty, that is. My church is actually not OC friendly (tell ya later), so I always humbly comply by leaving my pistol locked up in the trunk. When the service ended, I was invited by a friend to go to lunch at Panera's in Main Street, Newark. Nice place by the way. He had a friend from out of town join him for the church service, and he also tagged along for lunch. So that made 3 of us, and we drove down separately. There seemed to be much traffic, so we all found different places to park.
So I park my car a few blocks down from Panera's, and jump in the trunk for my funk (Mhm.
). With my P22 in the holster and ready, I head out to the destination. I was the first to get there, and perhaps 2 or 3 UD students noticed my sidearm on the way there and when in line ordering, but nothing happened. When the other 2 guys showed up, we had a nice brunch, and then we got word that there was to be a parade that day in just another hour or so! I know, memorial day isn't until next weekend, but oh well.
Instead of breaking and going home, we decided to stick around and see the parade. 'Fair enough', I thought. We went into 1 or 2 other stores before the first sounds of the parade came up Main Street. All the while, nothing to report. But it was about the time the parade started that I noticed slight environmental changes relevant to OC.
1. There were plenty more people in the streets (crowds = tricky targeting, FF risk).
2. There were about 4 cops at each intersection (really).
My friend and his friend were okay with my OC (win), but they're from Maryland (fail). The entire parade didn't seem to mind, either. So we're there watching the parade, and I'm in the crowd with a gun in plain sight surrounded by cops. I almost broke a sweat. But didn't.
So I forget the exact order of the procession, but the local firefighters convoyed by, and nobody questioned my gun. The Shriners rode by, and no cop approached me. The army and navy marched down the street, and I was not being detained. Mike Castle drove by, and it was all cool. The United States Marines
marched past, and I was never arrested.... Anyway, when the parade was done, we split up, and I headed home, totally unopposed.
It was a very nice day.
