Today is the day

Since it's a gorgeous spring day and I don't feel like fussing with cover shirts, I am going to open carry to the grocery store. For a long time now, I've talked about the importance of atypical gun owners - like women & the disabled - being more visible in the fight for our 2nd Amendment rights so this it it...I'm going to walk the walk.

I'm wearing a pink shirt (opted against the one that reads "Radical Militant Librarian") and dolled myself up a bit (ok, just extra lipgloss, but still) in the hopes of looking as nonthreatening as possible, but I'm still so nervous. Wish me luck.

Woot! Something tells me folks will notice your cuteness and not the gun.

I'm open carrying right now, sitting in this little mexican place. Even though today's the rapture nothing has happened. No hail of gunfire.

Good Luck! Yeah, I want to start doing that, too.

Awesome.

From Twitter, it sounds like everything went about the same as my ventures into openly carrying - either no one noticed, or no one cared.

Which is kind of the whole point :). Congratulations, and welcome to the party!

It's fun, isn't it?

I used to read L. Neil Smith novels and think about how cool it would be to live in a world like that. Now I do, and it's every bit as good as I imagined.
