    That post didn't specify OC. I could be carrying concealed.

    Someone has to be shot at first, may as well be me. I've always been told that I 'look military', even when I had long hair and in highschool; I frequently wear military related shirts and hoodies, and have a high&tight cut, so if you're looking to take down what looks like a hard target I'm probably going to be your first pick anyway. I don't go to bars anymore because even before I joined the service I was the first guy that punk trying to impress is girlfriend came after. It's something I've just learned to deal with.

    When I OC people just assume I'm a cop. Chances are you might assume the same even if you don't see a gun because off duty cops CC too.

    If you don't like OC, then don't OC. Others should be free to make their own choice.

    Yeah, she's been a party line leftist democrat and supports all this unconstitutional gun control garbage yet to distract from all that she makes a big public show of being pro open carry. The devil's going to be in the details though with this lady.

    Well maybe after Texas becomes the next state to legalize weed they'll stop running around and settle down to watch some cartoons.

    Employers who have never signed such an agreement are always free to hire anyone they want even in states with no so-called "right to work" laws. But of course, the uneducated righties that mostly populate the state of TX don't know that, making them easy prey for the stale dishonest rhetoric of pols that promise to enact these anti-market laws.

    TX is also the state that has decided to ban Tesla from directly selling cars to consumers, another anti-freedom, anti-market practice.

    I could list all the other anti-freedom, anti-market measures that the lower-midwestern right wing ****hole has enacted, but it would crash the forum.
    not exactly, the employer has to sign the union security agreement, if enough workers want to be unionized, and if an NLRB sanctioned election in that workplace leads to a majority vote for unionization.

    No doubt she will present as quite the reasonable 'moderate'...right up until the final vote is counted.
