carry

I carry almost all the time. Even at the local PD, but I am known there. I do not carry at Church or post office, I leave it in the car. I do carry at home.

:soapbox: I don't do the + because it is against current law. If I didn't care about the law I wouldn't have bothered getting the permit in the first place. That is why changing the current law is so important. If you go about doing the + because you feel the law is unfair then you really aren't doing anything productive, you're just breaking the law. My :2cents:, pony up the $15 bucks and join GCO and help them change the current laws.

How far are you willing to take that?

Permit for going to church? Will you apply for a book reading permit? How about an interstate travel permit?

I'm not trying to tell you where the boundaries ought to be drawn, just asking you to think about yours.

A permit to carry my own defensive firearm is not just an unfair law: it's unjust and immoral. Don't be too hard on people who choose not to be complicit in the injustice.
You're missing the point. I'm not being hard on anyone. I don't like having to get a permit but I would guess that most people answering the above have a permit otherwise there is no + , they are carrying wherever they want which is against current law.

Now, my point is that we have a permit, whether you like it or not, whether it's fair or not, whether it's your God given right or not. Deal with it. The way to deal with it is that instead of breaking the law, which is what you are doing (like it or not), pony up $15 dollars and join an organization that is trying to make a difference.
That was what I meant and only that. There is no judgement, just stating what the facts. Ignoring the law might just get you arrested at some point and then when you are standing in front of the judge you can tell him the law is unfair and see how sympathetic he is to your cause.

Again, no judgement, no hostility, you know me better than that.

I must be speaking Greek. :D

My point again, is that the law sucks and we should work to change it, not INTENTIALLY violate it. I really don't know how much clearer I can state that.

And yes, I probably have violated the law unknowingly (because the current law is so convoluted) but the question was whether one did + and I assumed that meant knowingly. I also don't think it is prudent to admit on an internet forum that you knowingly violate the law.

That's it, there is no moral judgment. I don't think I am better then anyone and I really don't care if you chose to carry everywhere you go, your choice, it's just not mine.

I prefer following the law as closely as possible.
Then we must know! Where do you put your firearm when you park at a restaurant that serves alcohol? Or do you park off-property?

Come to think of it, if one eats at a restaurant in a shopping plaza, is the entire parking lot considered a no-no?
