    Maybe if all these fruitcakes who want to OC would stop walking around with there phones or a video camera and stop instagating a confrontation with the police they would not be so pissed off when they deal with a citizen.All them John Wayne types are doing is really making harder for the average US Citizen to keep there 2A Rights or having Laws passed!!!!!!!!!!I was watching youtube videos of OC crap lastnight and walking up on a officer with a camera doing a traffic stop to show him you have a gun is one way they may get more then a interview on camera.I cant blame many of them for what they do ,only thing i dont agree on is i see them taking a weapon from folks then unloading them and telling them not to reload it.Now if they are detaining folks and taking there weapons from them until they prove tey are not a so called felon,why hasnt anyone sued the PD or City to prove there point seeing they all have cameras and record it?

    I really gotta stop and ask,What is gonna happen when one of these camera/phone/video recording fools walk up on a pissed of veteran of the police force or a young rookie who doesnt understand the OC law and is so startled there is a Lethal Force Action that takes place ??????? Sure wish these groups walking around with OC guns and video equipment would get taken down to a back room and the phone book put atop there head and get it tapped a few times with the old hickory stick,Maybe just maybe then they would grow up and learn how to get a law passed and not Instagate every officer they see into a confrontation.To bad the police officers cant arrest them and sue them for invading there privacy without written consent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    RussP i am not sure if you are trying to help or just see how much folks wanna accuse me of being a troll,but in my defense i dont care that you started the thread like you did,As you see i also CC and i do support OC but i dont support the groups doing what they do to try to pass it,All i can say is there are some Officers that got some very thick skin to refrain from just letting loose on some of these Ignorant types that just go looking for trouble each day.

    You introduced an unrelated topic into a thread using inflammatory language. Any responses would have derailed the discussion there. Here, you have your own sandbox to play in.

    I know I would never open carry. if someone else wants to that's their deal. I believe in freedom and it takes people to make bold moves sometimes to make that happen. If you think that OC, or video cameras is the reason to make some cops treat us with guns at traffic stops unprofessional I think your way off base. I've never been stopped while CC. If I were you can bet your life I would have my Phone on record sitting in my cup holder. if anything I think the cameras and audio recordings are helping to educate the police. Someone is always watching. The truth is some people should not carry guns and some people should not be police officers.

    Alright, I agree with you that the shock trooper open carry movement is not really helping anybody. Though you have to understand these people are at least brave enough to stand up for our rights. Open carry shouldn't be shunned. Do gun owners forget our right to bear arms? That doesn't just mean hidden under a coat, or inside the waistband, but any way you want to carry. If you would like to see a positive change regarding open carry I think that picking up litter with a couple of open carriers would help alot more than some verbal standoff with the local police. Education is what we need not confrontation.

    Sometimes someone who is thought of as a "fruitcake" in their own time ends up becoming revered as time passes. Some of Reagan's own staff thought he was unhinged enough to be about to start a nuclear war. Rev. King was thought less visionary and more instigator during his time - now we have a holiday. On the other hand, some ideas that were dumb at the time are even more stupid now. I am not convinced that confrontational open carry (I am open for a better way to phrase this in a couple words) will work well in the long term but I will instantly admit that the jury is still out on this as it were.

    Man, those abolitionists, and those women's suffrage fruitcakes, or those civil rights guys. What's with them? No wonder police are pissed off at these people walking around trying to free the slaves or saying crazy stuff like "women should be able to vote," and "repeal Jim Crow laws." I don't blame the cops for being angry when some uppity negro wants to eat in the white section....

    And those open carry wackos! Thinking that people can just walk around, with guns right out in plain sight, like it's their right! It's like they think they're just as good as government officials!

    I don't have a problem with people who OC, but I will agree that some people take things too far in search of a confrontation. Kwikrnu comes to mind, as does the guy who videoed himself OCing an AK on the way to his wife's workplace. However, wishing that the police would take them into a back room and tune them up seems a bit extreme.
