When you dress in boots, blue jeans, t-shirt, vest, and an old military issue gore-tex woodland camo jacket and go strolling, sorry, trolling for cops in a city park, you need to have your ass kicked.
I filed a complaint with the regional director of the State Parks.
I need to file a complaint with Chief Serpas of the Metro PD.
I plan on writing all of the members of the metro city council as well.
Next week when I open carry the AK-47 in a Nashville State Park (Bicentennial Mall) I better not be detained longer than is necessary to check my permit and determine I'm not a safety hazard. I will have an audio recording as well.
If the Tennessee Legislature wanted to prohibit me from carry a custom colored handgun they would make custom colored handguns illegal. If the Legislature wanted to prohibit me from carrying a sig556, Kel-Tec plr-16, AR15 pistol or AK pistol they would have made them illegal to carry. I'm not doing anything illegal by carrying an AK47 pistol. A smith and wesson .460 revolver will kill someone just as dead. In fact a .22lr will kill someone too. I find it ridiculous that cops will make up laws on the spot just because they do not like how you look or what type of firearm you carry.
Keep chuming and you might get a bite you can't handle.kwikrnu wrote: I think in Tennessee anytime a cop sees someone carrying a handgun or any firearm reasonable suspicion is raised. However, this pistol doesn't look like a rifle because rifles all have one thing in common, they all have shoulder stocks or have a place to attach them. The draco AK has neither. God help someone who carries a homemade AR pistol put together from parts, because the buffer tube is going to be hell to explain.
No two people ever see eye to eye and I know this is your website, but don't take this the wrong way. Cops bait people all of the time. They leave bait cars on the street for thieves to steal, they run prostitution stings, and drug stings. I don't condone illegal behavior at all, but if cops can do it why is it "poor form and not helpful" if regular joe citizen does it?
I really, really worry about this. Whenever he's posted something, he's taken some action to bring his post to life. Am I wrong? I pray I am.I never said "shoot out". I don't want cops to shoot me, thank you very much. It is a fact that cops shoot innocent people.
I am looking for a good procedure to disarm. If a cop has a gun on you and tells you to remove your weapon can you tell him no, you do it? As soon as you put your hand on your handgun he can shoot you and get away with it.
Note the progression from "orange tip" to "orange gun".Ok. No shootout for you. Got it. How does an orange tip prevent the police from shooting you, and why would they want to shoot you? I carry a gun every day and never have any concern that the police are just going to shoot me. I'm just interested in your logic on this. Why are the police going to shoot you?
kwikrnu: Why do cops shoot innocent people? I don't know, mistakes, twitchy finger, adreneline, because they can. It is a proven fact cops shoot people. Since it is a known fact they shoot innocent people I hope that having an orange gun will make them think twice about shooting me.

What? Your goal to provoke police to the point they arrest you.
What would be acceptable findings from your complaints?

I've posted the audio and I do not sound threatening. I showed the first ranger my ID and spoke with him in a normal tone. Yet, I was treated as a dangerous criminal.
I'm still trying to decide. I'll read the report and maybe give them to a lawyer to look over. Don't worry I will post them on the web as well.
RussP wrote: You say you don't sound threatening in the audio. That may be true, but what about your statement, "The AK-47 is big and visible. It represents a bigger threat." Seems you let your AK do the threatening for you.
What happens when the reports come back and they are not to your satisfaction? What will be next?
