    I don't believe I ever mentioned OC.org. I was speaking of some of the poster over in the "carry issues" section of this board. And you don't have to agree with me. There is a hate of LE and government by some in that section.

    That's a fascinating link, thank you. There's increasing problems with the same kind of people over here. I've never met one who could actually give a legal basis for their belief except "it's the common law, innit" :upeyes:

    My mistake on the OC.org thing.

    There is an irrational hate by some on any subject you care to mention. The question is whether or not it is a significant number or not.

    Excellent, thanks!

    Edit, just emailed the link to my co-workers (thank god it's only 13 minutes long, some have short attention spans).

    "If they want to come after me...I might even like it!" God bless ya, Chief.

    I once had a neighbor that was of the Sovereign Citizen mind set. He could tell you a dozen reasons why the Feds had no rights to collect income taxes.

    He doesn't live there anymore. His property was seized for failure to pay his taxes.

    I grew up in an area in the 70s/80s that was heavy with posse and militia during that recession of the 80s. We now have an entire county in that same region that is being run by anti-gubment religious zealots, who took out contracts on almost every single official in the county government.

    If your agency has restrictions on your off-duty carry, consider another agency. The Southern Poverty Law Center, another hate target for the sovereigns, has been studying these folks closely for some years now. Have your agency subscribe to their magazine for better details on their MO, and those like them.

    If only they put that basic energy and focus into something like growing food, or holding a job, or getting an education, or finding something they like to do other than hating the government.

    The summer I was in Basic Training in MO, 4 State Troopers were shot dead during traffic stops by "Soverign Citizens" over 20 years ago. It's not a new thing, unfortunately.

    don't know if I understand where you are coming from and not to Hi Jack the thread but how can an agency overrule HR218? I understand there are some administraitors that don't like it but it is federal Law unless you somehow don't fit the criteria!

    An agency isnt "overrulling" LEOSA. They can set a policy against it though. You wont have any legal ramifications but you may very well have administrative issues (up to and including loss of your job)

    LEOSA doesnt have anything to do with the policies of your agencies. It just allows you to be exempt from prosecution if you carry.

    Agency policy, in one County I was sworn in is/was, once you left that county you were like any other citizen in the state and subject to prosecution for carry. (WI has no CC.)

    I don't know what you mean by .." you don't fit the criteria!", but your statement obviously shows some education weakness on your part of L.E. off-duty carry.

    I understand that but they can't go against a Federal Law. I work for the Federal Buerau of Prisons and we are covered, however our administration drug their feet at first and it took several people including the union to basically call them on it. I am by no means a trouble maker but if your administration is wrong I would suggest calling them on it and taking it to court. If you meet the criteria they will have a hard time justifing why they want to go against federal law. JMHO

    Why does it always come back to the Michigan Militia? Check out their website. They invited me to their family-friendly picnic last Spring, at the DNR range in southeast MI. They are a particular organization, not a general term for all militia members in MI (many of whom might be insurrectionists). I am not a member, and don;t know much about them, but it's been old for a while to hear jokes about the MI militia when people find out I'm from MI and am not anti-gun.

    You still are missing what HR218 is.

    (this is the important passage)

    http://www.leaa.org/218/218text.html


    (d) may carry a concealed firearm that has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce, subject to subsection (b).

    It could just as easily say "may conduct police duties without a uniform..."

    However, your AGENCY sure as hell can set a policy that states "We will not conduct police duties without a uniform"

    Again, an agencies policies can tell you that you may not carry a firearm off duty. The penalty would be administrative...why, because HR 218 means it cant be CRIMINAL.

    For better or for worse, in the 90s, the MM pimped themselves out to every media outlet to get attention. The spotlight was on them and they reveled in it. So they garnered attention that has extended decades future because they were media hounds for awhile.

    I find myself more in caution of the silent types, the ones that shun media attention. They are the ones to likely explode into their version of "righteous rage" against anyone in authority.

    We had an officer stop one a couple of months ago. He arrested him on a warrant (I think), and issued him a couple of citations. Since the jail here has a revolving door (powered by the courthouse), he was released ROR in the morning on his warrants and had an initial appearance set on the tickets. He started nailing us with various "subpoeanas" on the tickets almost immediately.

    When it came time to initial appearance time on the tickets, somebody who claimed to be the "administrator for <NAME>" appeared for him. The judge was not impressed and ordered the "administrator" held on a $1000 cash bond on each ticket (knowing that it was our guy). After he sat in the pokey for two weeks, another judge reviewed the bond and decided that since the defendant had been required to personally appear at the initial and nobody claiming to be the defendant had been there, that they would just enter a conviction and judgment in the amount of the unsecured appearance bond (all citations here have an unsecured bond, which is 1.5x the fine + court costs that is the amount they owe if they FTA) and released him from jail.

    My Agency does. In BOP we have no arrest powers off duty however we are still covered. HR218 doesn't state a difference in off duty or on as far as arrest powers or several other criteria. There are a dozen different ways our adminisrtation in DC tried to circumvent it so they could tell us "NO". I suggest if you are with an agency that is doing that you should take it up with DOJ or take it through the court system.

    Good luck

    Your posts doesnt make a lot of sense to me based on what I said. Are you still taking the stance that an agency can not make a policy that you can not carry off duty?

    Please be careful of swallowing everything the Southern Poverty Law Center says. They did some great work in the past but have evolved into a big time fund raising organization. They will paint with an overbroad brush. They have accused military vets, retired LEOs and Oathkeepers as anti government militia.

    OathCreepers ARE not any friend of the government from what I can tell.

    And the SLPC is dead on WRT to them and the Sovereign Citizen Movement (as well as Posse Commitatus).

    ETA:

    Furthermore, I know that they (SPLC) has no great love for LE of any stripe.

    Just because you dislike/distrust the source, don't dismiss the information.

    Geez, I thought it was only me who read SPLC stuff.

    I don't trust any individual organization's research or analysis and will always try to verify with a different source. Like any good investigation, one has to try and run down all the leads.

    P.S. Now there's a report out that maybe Chairman Mao didn't write his own Little Red Book. So who can you really trust? :)
