    Another reason I don't open carry

    Virginia Open Carrier Is SWATted By Known Gun Control Loon - Bearing Arms

    Luckily the LEO handled this with class when he could have ended up dead like that kid in Utah that was shot coming out of a 7-11 because he "looked" like a suspect.

    I wouldn't let it stop me if OC was legal here.

    It sounds like the PD responded very well!

    That was rather uneventful. I have been pulled over by police with guns drawn and I was not SWATted.
    When the cop got to my window I just said " are you OK or are you having a bad day?" He looked in the car, laughed and said have a good day.

    I'm actually considering OCing myself. This kind of situation and the idiots who make these calls do have to be considered.

    Sad but true. "Do I want to risk being subjected to ignorance and abuse as I go about my business?!"



    I hope that the LEO, Judges and 911 staff are the ones that tire of the law breakers!!!

    It's legal here, and I do some, but I try not to slap anyone in the face with it. Sometimes my vest/shirt doesn't completely cover the firearm, but again I choose my battles, so to speak. It used to be that dropping the f-bomb was gauche, not so much any more, not saying it's right, just sayin'

    I agree William. I cannot believe how nearly everyone talks, from the mother in front of her kids, to the Husband in front of his wife. Sad commentary on the U.S.

    I open carry and will continue to do so.
    I do it respectfully and never let my hand even brush against it while in public.

    heres what i believe.

    if you have a right and dont use it, its a short time before you forget youve got it, once you reach that point, its not long before its taken.
