    Aggressive "in your face" activist fools like this make a great case AGAINST those of us who carry a concealed fiream without drama. The actions of people like this adversely impact those who carry responsiblity and discreetly. I agree with the judge.

    BTW... walking around with a firearm in your hand, or exposed, would be considered "brandishing" in my home state of Florida. That is a 1st Degree Misdemeanor (6 months/$1000 fine). Don't know what laws in TN are, but common sense says keep it concealed.

    I figured Leonard gave up on this one when he moved (at least I heard he moved... I was thinking to Georgia).. I guess he figured he still had hope of a payday, so it was worth the drive back.

    In his particular case, I’m glad. He worked very hard for his first arrest. Sometimes you just have to be glad a person succeeds and attains their goals.

    Well, Embody found an old statute that stated that:

    TCA 39-17-1314 allows cities to regulate firearms if their ordinances were in effect before April 8, 1986. The Belle Meade ordinance has been in effect for over 100 years.

    Title 11 Chapter 6 part 602 is the ordinance which governs handgun carry in Belle Meade. Specifically states that the carry of pistols and revolvers is illegal "except the army or navy pistol which shall be carried openly in the hand." ​

    He was trying to draw attention to himself under the guise of (apparently) complying with the letter of the law. It has been theorized that his intention was to get arrested unlawfully and then win the big lawsuit payout.

    Tennessee has a "Handgun Carry Permit" (HCP) - concealment is not a requirement. A permit is required when carrying a handgun with intent to go armed (loaded & accessible), regardless of OC or CC.

    That was just one of his many attempts; there were others before it that didn’t yield the desired results. IIRC he was no longer a GT member when he conjured that one up.

    Ya gotta wonder what the whole picture is with these guys...work? rich, poor, mentally deficient, sane? Nice to be a hero, but at what cost? Get arrested for violation and loose your favorite right & hobby?

    Don't know about Leonard. He's somewhat morphed over the years from his piss-everyone-off days to now he has his own FFL business and cannot afford to screw up.

    Go to his website terms page http://kwikrnu.com/terms.htm.

    Scroll on down to the last paragraph. You'll like that...:rofl:
