Yep, cops usually show up to investigate a shooting, not stop one.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

In WI you must inform you are armed if asked by the LEO.

I am actually happy where I live mostly... open carry is legal, nobody says anything to you. If the police see you they may ask what you carry just to be curious to what you are carrying, maybe they want to try it out or something. Usually they give you the nod and wave, maybe thank you for taking the time to stand up and protect yourself.

Delaware police and Troopers are the best!

Go blue hats!

I donít particularly want anybody knowing Iím armed. And that includes LEO. Iíve been pulled over three or four times in the last 20Ė30 years and was armed each time. Cop didnít ask and I didnít tell. In my opinion, thatís the way it should be.

I agree that people open carrying ARs or any other weapon really in Walmarts and other public places are really not doing us any favors as gun owners. But again, their right to do so.

They have the freedom and the constitutional rights to act like idiots if they want to.


In Michigan you have to tell LEO you have a weapon in your possession when stopped

if you are saying that you have a cpl and a firearm not in a case or lockbox you are correct

If I'm in the right I don't care who I might make nervous. I will not surrender my liberty because others are afraid to excercise their own.

Not a huge fan of open carry myself, it has no tactical advantages in my eyes. I do it when Iím outdoors or very rural America where guns are everyday life. It is very comfortable and i like the thought of melting snowflakes, but it does put a lot of people on edge.. It just seems like I see 2 kinds of guys open carry. #1 Good old country boy with a 1911. #2 young guy with a wonder 9, mag extensions and mag carrier. Last guy I saw had a Glock 19 and 45+ rounds on him! Lol Iím all for more fire power, glad heís on our side but dang dude! Why? It seems like the guys I see here in MN that do it are fairly young, walk with a swagger like they have an attitude. Idk, maybe itís my perspective of them, but I sure donít seem to see guys open carrying that are just playing it cool. If I start seeing guys open carry and looking like Walt Longmire and less like a punk, it might change my opinion.

Finster... You don't know me at all and your comments are stupid. [Linked Image]

I don't see him screaming at a cop. I see him yelling past a cop. You may think my comments are stupid but then again, unlike you I live in reality. In my world, evidence rules not your pathetic "feelings"

You will never gain any ground by trying to appease non gun owners. Am I going to carry my double barrel shot gun into a hot dog stand, NO. I am not going to bust my hind end to make sure my revolver is concealed and not printing. NO. I am just tired of non gun owners tell me what I can and can not do. Gun Ranges open in a few days in Michigan. Keep them in the black ring.

Well, you started the thread. All I'm doing is pointing out your flaws in thinking and debating your points. Don't blame me if you can't handle facts and counter points. Seems like you're the one being "stupid" If you don't want to debate the issue, then why post such an anti 2nd thread on this site. Maybe you have the IQ of a turnip?
