I don't think so. Again, depending on the officer responding, many don't think or like you expressing your right to carry. Hell many would prefer you to lose that right.

edit: basically don't act like there are not a shit ton of asshole cops out there and most don't even know their local laws.
This has not been my experience. I don't often open carry, but when I do around Arlington, VA (predominantly, filled with gun hating liberals), I get strange looks from people, but I've never been hassled or even approached by a cop.

I have been pulled over a couple of times when open carrying. I keep my hands on the steering wheel and tell the officer very calmly that I am open carrying. Never been hassled about it. Never asked to step out of the car; never asked to unholster or hand over.

Now, I'm about as clean cut, law-abiding, respectful, and polite as they come. I have to wonder if all the people claiming to be hassled by cops bring it on themselves because they act like douchebags.

Or maybe you need to hold your cops to a higher standard. :laughing: To be a cop in Minnesota you must attend an accredited two year vocational program or get your 4 year criminology degree. You must then pass our POST exam which is one of the harder ones in the nation (as evidenced by reciprocity agreements with other states). Want to come from another state and work here as a cop? You better meet the requirements below.

1. Complete basic police training in another state or federal law enforcement, and work in a law enforcement capacity for three years following basic training and possess a post-secondary degree; or five years following basic training if you do not possess a post-secondary degree. You must have been in law enforcement within the past six years.


2. Qualify through military police service in the U.S. military. See Military Reciprocity.


So maybe I should rephrase my statement. Cops that are worth a shit don't worry about private citizens carrying. Tyrone Gottaglock is a lot more likely to shoot them than Peter Permitholder.

And we still have shitty Cops. Hate to see other states.

I wonder what asshole school the Troopers go to? Tint enforcement 101.

“In an era in which individuals are being allowed to carry loaded guns on our streets with no permit, background check or required training, it is common sense for concerned citizens to call 911 when they see an armed individual whose intentions are unclear,”

So what the hell does a background check or CCW have to do with open carry?

I'd venture to say 6 out of 10 short gun purchases are done through a FFL so unless the buyer is a CCW holder, most likely a Nics was run. Last I heard Nics was intended to be the 'back ground check".

Training? Shit, 95% of the citizenry who own a short gun are likely better shots than the cops who , in the liberals point of view, are the only ones who need to be allowed to have guns.

Jesus, what a bunch of retarded windowlickers those guys are.

Maybe you need to get the fuck out more. I've got quite a few close friends that happen to be LEO and its a subject that many and I disagree on.

Last year a young cop started to arrest a guy carrying as he was leaving a local walmart. If it had not been for another cop showing up and sitting junior straight, the dude would have fought it all in court.

Again, most cops don't even know the local laws and damn sure not federal. Then throw in the fact most are just pricks...
I haven't found that to be the case at all. I jog on my lunch hour in the most liberal area I know of in my corner of the world. I work in a college town and I regularly see some of my old college professors on the track around the park. There's a cop that patrols the park constantly. I'm a pretty heavy guy and it's humid here so I print like a motherfucker. He told me one day he gets at least a call a week about me. He said he appreciates me being out there. I speed a lot and rightfully get pulled over. I'm required to show CCL with DL and unanimously it's been thank you for exercising your rights or don't give a fuck. Usually the don't give a fucks are when I'm really hauling ass and they are pissed.

In general, I think cops represent your general population. If you are an odd duck where you live, you probably don't like the cops and they probably don't like you. There are outliers any time you generalize about groups of people.

My buddy here open carries legally and has had 2 separate officers confront him and ASK HIM to conceal, without a permit, so that they don't receive bogus calls.

:laughing::laughing::laughing: Troopers are the ONLY ones that never have something better to do. It's been a LONG time since I've seen a County Mountie pull over a car for a traffic violation and when the locals do it it is usually just a welfare check. Troopers on the other hand...

Although I had a trooper pull me over last year for going 83 on I35 going north (right around Pine City where the trees start and they can lurk undetected in the median) and he didn't give me a ticket or a warning and gave exactly ZERO shits when I volunteered to him that I was a permit holder and had a 9 mm with one in the pipe on my left hip. He was actually surprised I think and just said, "Oh...well...ok?" :D

If a person want to legally open carry a firearm that's fine. But when you walk around in public places it's just asking for trouble, hey look at me I'm a bad mother fucker ...

I think that depends on where you are. I've lived in places where no fucks were given. The law just recently changed to allow it here, so it's still uncommon enough that people will look at you different. Interestingly, when you walk into a gun shop OC, most ask you to clear the weapon. They give no fucks about CC. I have no idea if that will change as people get accustomed to our reclaimed rights.

You're fucking retarded :shaking:

I open carried for 3 years before I got a permit. It wasn't because I'm a badass :laughing: It was because

a) it's more comfortable
b) I'm fucking lazy, and don't want a piece of paper giving me 'permission' to exercise my fucking rights :shaking:

Gun control people are some of the most stupid people I have ever met but you are just as stupid for blaming liberals. I'm not going to apologize that 16 million of us liberals refuse to suck LaPeeyoos dick because he thinks only conservatives want to defend the 2nd amendment.
I find your statement interesting when in your signature you are touting Bernie Sanders for president a man who has stated unequivocally that if he had the power he would confiscate all privately held firearms.
You will find there are a lot of firearm people who don't like the NRA or Wayne LaPierre either.

I was down in Los Lunas and observed a confrontation between a man open carrying and two county mounties he was paying for his gas through the outside window. He patiently explained the relevant laws that allowed him to open carry and they left. He then turned to me and said the silly thing is I'm the civilian marksman trainer for the county!

About 15 years ago the head of the Albuquerque police union was on KOB radio afternoon show and she stated she didn't care if it was legal if she saw somebody openly carrying a firearm she would find some reason to arrest them. She was voted out the next week!

Please quote the original(and hopefully reputable) source? As far as I know in his entire history he's never said anything of the sort.

Please don't take that as I agree with him 100% especially on 2A because I absolutely do not, but let's keep facts straight. That is my pet peeve and believe me, I've spanked a hatemongering, hypocritical liberal on my board many times for posting lies about conservatives/Republicans. I absolutely do not like people twisting "facts" for their agenda pushing and unfortunately Sanders has at one time or another. Thankfully it's been extremely rare.

I'll just put this here:

Why We Need To Welcome Liberals to the Cause of the Second Amendment

No one can call themselves a true liberal if they do not recognize that 2A protects exactly that.

Liberal | Define Liberal at Dictionary.com

3. of, pertaining to, based on, or advocating liberalism, especially the freedom of the individual and governmental guarantees of individual rights and liberties.

4. favorable to or in accord with concepts of maximum individual freedom possible, especially as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties.
Many people have lost sight of why they believe the way they did in the first place. Polarization and fundamental patriotism has created hordes of bigoted, hateful minions on both sides of the aisle and I refuse to join cults.

And Sanders is more than happy to welcome those bigoted minions to empower him.

Facts? Inviting black lives matters to address his audience following their disrupting his gathering and their claims that his fans are all liberal white bigots.

So he's suppose to stop exercising his rights to make the calls stop? Fawk that, he needs to express to the cops they need to stop calling on him.

And here it is, your buddy Bernie stating his anti 2nd gun rights point of view. Lets face it, your party is mostly anti constitution and anti American. If you want a socialism society, then I guess that's your party but it is no where near mine. I'm not at all happy with most of the weak republican party either.

Take your blinders off.

The anti's dont care if they are arrested for false report. They know that they will just get a small fine and maybe probation as maximum punishment for it.
As long as they can tie up the cops time and harass a gun owner they will do it. Their goal is to make cops so sick and tired of responding to these fake calls that they start lobbying to end open carry.
Anti's have nothing to lose by being arrested unlike gun owners who stand to lose their rights for life over one arrest.

Edit: I've heard anti's talk about using prepay phones for this. Done that way there is practically zero chance of them getting caught for falsely reporting "active shooters" when they see some guy with a gun on their hip.

I saw a post on facebook, with the username and profile pic blurred, where the chick was saying that if she sees someone carrying a gun, then she's going to pepper spray them, take their gun, and hold them until police arrive.

I'm betting Felicia gets her ass shot.

The guy that tackled that dude in a Florida Walmart got a ~$850 fine, ban from owning guns (probably not a big deal), and 12 months of probation. He also got a label. That isn't a small price to pay IMHO.

@Bustin Loose I haven't seen Bernie call for a ban on all firearms, but he HAS called for a ban on ALL semi-automatic firearms. That is right on his election page. Maybe my AK is arguable more dangerous than other firearms, but I also have a 20 gauge Remington m1100 Special Field that is the single best grouse gun I have ever owned. Ignoring Constitutional issues and the fact that the 2A isn't about hnting his unequivocal ban would hit my hunting shotgun just as hard as my evil black rifle collection.

No one should be a single issue voter, but you are turning a VERY blind eye if you think Bernie is even so much as neutral on guns, let alone pro-2A.
