The latest set of MPOTEC updates in PA had a section educating officers on open carry.
The lectures told everyone that open carry is not illegal w/o LTC (except in Philly). Response "WHAT???!!!"
They also said that even if you are called if on public property and not otherwise restricted to be careful in dealings with OC'ers as they know their rights and you can get in hot water if you violate them!
Also stated that if on private property and not otherwise violating law you can only ask them to leave...
Guess the message is getting out..
Well, I have mixed feelings about posting that.
First, I think it is very good and useful information indicating that agencies are making efforts.
Second, the reality of "there will be confrontations" is there, and everyone should be up on the law.
Third, if you post that in Carry Issues, and the response is as I believe it has the potential to be, it will bring out the radical ends of the spectrum.
Fourth, related to the third point, that would give Eric and the mods a chance to cull the herd of those who munch on too much loco-weed.
I'm up for it.
