Open Carry Walk Miami University

Open Carry is carrying a firearm unconcealed in Ohio. OC does not require a concealed handgun license, but the practice requires intimate knowledge of the law since there are places and situations where OC is prohibited but carrying concealed would be permitted. OC is also likely to attract attention. This forum is for discussion of OC, not for debating the pro's and con's or coordinating any type of protest events.

Thank you for the kind words. I hope to see you in Oxford on Saturday.

Some groups on campus have been batting around some...unusual...forms of potential protests to this educational walk. One suggestion seemed to take its inspiration from PETA: Semi-nude (female) protesters, with the idea being "I'd rather go naked than be around a gun!"

I don't know how serious the people were about that one. However, I have added mirrored sunglasses, and a stack of $1 bills, to my checklist of things to bring along. :mrgreen:

Saturday could get...interesting. Apologies to BB62 for blabbing a bit about this here and a couple other pro-gun forums where the educational walk was mentioned, but once something hits Facebook like those protest ideas did, it ain't a secret.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

Can we stay on topic please? Remember, if we want this walk to be taken seriously we should also appear serious in a thread dealing with it.

After electronically digging into the background of some of the potential protesters from Miami University, I may never get serious about anything again .One example? "Preferred gender pronouns", that bit of college-born linguistic nonsense is actually a thing now, maybe headed to a real world workplace near you.

My oldest son is a high school junior this year; so we are beginning to do the college visit thing. If BB62 remembers, this is the son that I carried on my shoulders for most of the open carry walk in Wilmington (I think) around 2003.

Last Saturday we visited Miami University in Oxford for their official campus visit.

Based on our experience last week, BB62 and the group should have no problems. They may not get an overly warm welcome but I do not think there will be any antagonistic protests.

Miami does appear to be into the "PC Movement". The term Freshman seems to be forbidden. Everyone that conducted the tours, that I would consider a Freshman, referred to themselves as a "First Year". The student that led our group was a Senior and referred to himself as such. However, when he talked about events in the past, they were things that happened when he was a "First Year". The faculty and administrative people that were part of the pre-tour presentation also referred to when students are "First Year" as opposed to Freshmen. I know Miami changed their mascot about 25 or so years ago from Redskins to Redhawks, even though the leaders of the Miami tribe had no issues with the term Redskin.

Miami also seems to be a school where people are expected to follow the rules. Our tour guide gleefully pointed out how the parking garage on campus was fully paid for and is fully funded operationally by parking fines. My wife and I did not have the heart to ask how long it took to collect enough in fines to pay for the parking garage. However, they do patrol the streets to make sure cars have the "authorized parking pass". A few days before our visit, I received an e-mail with a .pdf of a Parking Pass that had to be displayed on my vehicle's dashboard,with the correct license plate number added, while parked on campus. After our tour, my wife, son and I walked to a nearby restaurant for lunch. When we came back to the Farmer School of Business, there was a "gentleman" walking down the street looking at the parking passes on the dashboard of each car he went past.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to join the festivities this weekend. My younger son has a soccer tournament in Louisville, KY on Saturday and Sunday.

Have an enjoyable and educational walk.

I couldn't pick him out of a crowd, but I remember you carrying him. Looong time ago!

Thanks Paul.

A reasoned response to an MU student's editorial about the Walk: http://miamistudent.net/?p=17016827

The MU student is given a second "shot": http://miamistudent.net/?p=17016825

The inaccurate, overwrought response to the Walk by the editorial board of the student newspaper: http://miamistudent.net/?p=17016829

Oh my!

Best line of the story, IMO,

People can be assured by marchers of their good intentions and commitment to safety, but that assurance does not erase the emotions that are evoked when one lays eyes on a gun.
Ain't activism fun?

"Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company. " - George Washington

"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
And because I can not do everything, I will not refuse to do the something I can do.
What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of GOD, I will do."
- Edward Everett Hale (descendant of Nathan Hale)
