I’m originally from Richmond, and keep in touch with some friends there. This came up in one of their (FB) threads, with the entreaty to avoid Carytown: “You might get killed!” My first reaction was, “Oh good. It’s OC Texas all over again,” but several items about this report stood out. First, it looks like their guns are unloaded — at least the AK is sans magazine. That seems like a good way to do OC for awareness-raising, not that gun muggles know any better. Second, this is not your typical grouchy OFWG crowd. They seem friendly and approachable. Third, the report by VTVR is fair [click here to watch], with several handwringing (older) women balanced by a curious younger woman. (One of the older women said she was frightened because the gun owners were carrying a flag. Please.) Finally, another shout-out to Philip Van Cleave, who goes on record supporting long gun OC while mildly shaking his head at it. The NRA could have taken some pointers from him.
