Fundraiser to Support Delaware Open Carry!


We've come to that time of the year when our server lease and domain name registrations are coming up for renewal. In the past, many of you have expressed your generosity in the form of donations in order to keep the site running - I'm asking for your support again this year.

Please visit our donation information page for more details and, if you enjoy this site, if you've ever attended our gatherings or, if this community has brought you some knowledge or entertainment, please give what you can to keep us going.

Why just OCers? Are OCers somehow more dangerous than CCers?
If you are properly CCing a gun, no one would know!!!

Isn't that obvious?

So, what good reason for disarming someone carrying OC wouldn't also apply to someone carrying CC?

There is no good reason to disarm any lawfully carrying citizen. At least not that I can think of....

Agreed, Dave. Apparently, having a visible gun would be a problem to this bar owner though... I would think such a bar owner would have a "no firearms" policy but that they would only "enforce" it if they could see the firearm.

Again, a place I would not frequent.

Do you mean checked as in "Oh, that's a nice Glock you have there. Please enjoy your drinks." or "You can't bring that inside. Please disarm and take this receipt. When you're finished, you can have your gun back." ?? If it's the second one, you can be sure I would leave and NOT visit that bar again.


Disarming people is not what I'd be interested in, too much hassle and I don't want to be responsible for your guns. Letting your server know if they aren't aware you're carrying would be a courteous thing to do before she starts serving you Jaeger-bombs and shots.

That's a big assumption in today's society. Common sense isn't too common. But I know our DELOC members would be responsible!


Hence the reason why they'd all get 20% off and complimentary drinks when they show a DELOC insignia. I think I'll be nice and stack that too, so vets and public safety could get up to 40% off if they supported DELOC! :D

It's the server's job to serve customers drinks and watch for public intoxication, NOT to make the advanced judgement that she shouldn't serve someone because they are armed. That sounds like discrimination to me....
