Delaware Open Carry is a group of law-abiding citizens who live in Delaware and have taken upon themselves the responsibility of peaceably carrying a firearm in order to protect our loved ones. We are your neighbors, your co-workers, your friends and the people you pass as you push your cart down the aisle of the grocery store. Many of us have grown up hunting from a young age, while several are fairly new to firearms.
We are, in fact, a very diverse group consisting of parents, business persons, computer programmers, college students and medical professionals; what we do have in common is a grave understanding that our choice is not one lightly made. We are constantly aware of our surroundings and have made our best efforts to be as knowledgeable as we can about our firearm and how it operates.
Make no mistake, there is not one person amongst us who ever wants to have to draw our firearm, much less use it in self-defense; however, our right to carry, guaranteed by the Delaware Constitution, is a freedom we've chosen to exercise and encourage others to explore, for there is no freedom greater than the one that allows us to protect our lives and the lives of those we love.
We invite you to ask any questions you might have on our Forums. We also invite you to join us for our monthly dinners where we get together one evening and simply enjoy good food and the good company of one another.
There is no membership. There are no dues. There are no requirements. If you have a genuine interest in firearms, whether it be open carrying, carrying concealed, or even long arms and hunting; even if you're thinking about purchasing your first firearm and you have questions and are seeking other folks to chat with -- stop on by!
