    Carried my trusty Colt throughout my state capitol building.

    They just swipe your CHL card instead of making you go through the metal detectors.:)

    Thanks, but I borrowed that pic from another fellow Texas patriot at the 2nd Amendment rally last Saturday.

    The pic I took isn't nearly as good. :eek:

    Let's see... Texas... the state that requires you to obtain a permit which you have to pay the government for to conceal a handgun, which is the ONLY way you can carry it for self-protection. Exactly what is so great about that?

    As mentioned above, we can carry in our state capitol in Olympia Washington. Unlike Texas though, we can carry concealed or open.

    ...and we have. :D

    It boggles my mind that some states don't allow OC. Seems like a good enough reason to raise a stink right there. Pretty obviously denying the Constitution.

    Eh, I wouldn't open carry if it was an option.

    Paying for the permit/taking the class/waiting...I disagree with all of that noise though.

    TX isnt as "wild west free" as some states and we don't have squat for public land, but its got more going for it than any other state out there. That being said...there are some other great states as well.

    TX is definitely the leader of the free states though. (Not just on gun rights issues).
