i personally don't understand the point of OC. There is absolutely 0 advantage over carrying concealed. The only time im going to OC is if im at work wearing a vest. Even when going to LE classes i choose to carry concealed. I'm not a big fan of making myself a target and hanging a gun on your hip legal or not isn't the best idea. It seems to me most people that are in the OC crowd are just wanting attention. Are you allowed to do it? sure. is it a good idea? i don't think so. Heres a very good link to OC issues:

Open Carrier Discrimination - The Daily Show with Jon Stewart - 04/12/10 - Video Clip | Comedy [email]Central
This is the opinion of CCers everywhere. I actually believe OC works as a deterrent against them. Criminals prey on and attack the weak. If you have an obvious means to self defense, they will look elsewhere.
Why do uniformed police officers OC? I believe they do so for better access to their weapons and its by far more comfortable than CC, especially because of all the gear they have to wear.

I personally don't OC for the amusement of uploading youtube videos or the tacticool showoff factor a few OCers do. I do so because one, its a right that I like the choice to have, and to protect myself and my 16 month old son. If some oversensitive citizen is offended by it, well boo hoo for them. I don't like dogs, but I don't ask someone to cover their dog up while they're walking it on a leash. I bet id get a summons if I saw someone walking their pit bull or german shepherd and called 911 over it, even if the dog looked at me menacingly or barked at me.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions and I respect that, I would just rather have the choice to do it if I wanted.

A lot of the posters are law enforcement and have that kind of formal training. Again, which posters are the "fat little show boats"?

OC does allow for slightly faster access to the weapon compared to CC. How much faster depends on the concealment method utilized. It is also slightly more comfortable for most people. For me, though, those advantages don't outweigh the disadvantages. I definitely don't buy the deterrent argument as a blanket statement. It may work sometimes. Other times it may cause the criminal to identify you as the first target in an ambush. Overall I'm for it being legal, but very rarely exercise that particular right.

I believe he was referring to the previous poster who commented on the groups showing off their ability to carry an unloaded firearm. At least, I hope he was

There are pros and cons to both methods of carry as much as there are pros and cons to different methods of concealed carry.

In many parts of Arizona we've evolved it to the point where the cops will simply ask the caller over the phone:

"Is he doing anything criminal, or is he just standing there acting normal?"

And if the answer is that the gun-toter is just sitting there eating lunch with his kids, the cops will then explain to the caller that it's perfectly legal and that if the guy goes postal, to call back then - otherwise, calm down and don't call us over nothing.

I think it's been working for us.

Are you implying that those posting here as police officers aren't really police officers? Please tell me that's NOT what you're saying, because that would have to rank up there with one of the stupidest comments I've EVER seen.



And for the record, I am not, and never have claimed to be, a cop. I have nothing but the utmost respect for them and what they do, which doesn't APPEAR to be the case with you. I hope I'm wrong, but you're making my case pretty convincingly.

This has to be one of the most brilliant posts I have seen in all of Glocktalk. I'm impressed. Truly.

Merle, is that you, buddy?

Unfortunately in other parts of the country, if the reporting party wants a Deputy to go check it out, then one is sent. When I get sent somewhere, and talk to someone a report is written.

At least I work in Ohio where I can detain an attention whore until he/she is identified (and checked for warrants). Maybe that is why it is not as popular here.

As typical with these threads, the OP doesn't like how it has progressed and ruffles his feathers.

Absent you referencing/quoting a post, it is very difficult knowing what you're responding to.

You've said several times you are leaving the discussion. Are you serious this time?

Why do you jump to the conclusion that I would even respond to that call? If it's legal to OC and the patron is legally OCing in an OC legal place I would make a call back to the complainant and tell them to get their panties out of a twist and have a nice day. Now stop bothering me with contrived scenarios and let me finish having dinner with my family.

Unlocked yet? ok good!

If I have understood all this back and forth nonsense-ry, it seems the OP just wanted to know what LEO think and do when a OC'er is reported in an OC legal state? Do they talk to OC'er first? Do they detain OC'er first? Do they talk to the person that reported and called first?

I live in Charlotte, NC and NC is an OC state, I have done it a few times, but like most I am just not comfortable with all the stares. I also dont want to have to waste my time and the time of LEO's as Charlotte has enough crime as it is. But I myself would like to know, if I were called in on for OC and you showed up and saw that I am well dressed, semi to clean shaven "depends on time of year lol" and overall just minding my own business, how would you approach the subject "OC"?

Are LEO more upset if someones starts the whole am I being detained thing? Or are you ok with intelligent people asking about their rights and your duty performance?

Just honest ?'s that I think are inline with what the OP wanted.


Thanks,

Tim

The problem with the original post isn't the CONCEPT. Asking what cops do if/when they get the call is one thing, but if you read the post, that's not what he's doing. What he's asking is WHO DO YOU BLAME for harassing the poor, misunderstood OCer. The questions, as their phrased, would fall under the category of a "push poll" in politics: leading the audience to the answer you want them to give.

Take a look again:

See, he sets the starting-point of the questions as it's the store's fault, that it's the cops fault, and that everyone is "bothering" this "poor, helpless victim." That's not in any way, shape, or form an impartial question.

I think this should come down to the dispatch. Someone calls in a man with a gun (MWAG). The dispatcher should asked "Is this person threatening anyone? Is the gun in a holster? Does the person appear to be at least 18 (or whatever age is required in that state)?" A lot of times the answer is "Well the person is sitting there eating food. The gun is in a holster on his hip and he's minding his own business." At that point the dispatcher should inform the person that open carry is legal and the person is not breaking any laws.

You seem to not understand the view of open carriers. For those who open carry it is not about getting the attention from people it's about deterring someone who would want to pick them as a target. Criminals tend to not mess with people who they know to be armed. Saying someone who open carries only does it for the attention is like saying someone who carries concealed only does it so they can shoot an unsuspecting criminal. Is either statement true? Generally speaking, no.

Actually, even in your comment, you admit they do it for attention, though it falls into the semantics category.

As you said, some of them do it get the attention of the bad guys that might think twice about messing with them if they can see it. Others do it to get the attention of the media, the "shock factor", but both are actually doing it for SOME sort of attention.

I'm not making a judgment. Just saying that there IS attention-seeking involved. I would never open carry, even if it were legal, but that's my choice.
