    More legit than thou OCer (lame)

    Was OCing in McDonald's today with my family and saw one a dude come in OCing with what appeared to be one of those cheesy Handgun Carry Permit badges on his waist. Sigh. So silly. Not sure if he spotted me, but I spotted him.

    Need I preach about how lame (and dangerous) it is to wear one of these OC badges here, or are we all pretty much cool on this?

    Anyway, nice time with the family. My kids OCed Happy Meal toy robots that had the capability to shoot their own head as a projectile and the manager briefly looked at my gun with raised brow but didn't say anything or freak out. Might have helped that I was holding a kid when she spotted me.

    You sure it wasn't a police detective?
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Most definitely not a detective. Jeans, loose untucked black t-shirt, unkempt appearance and extremely young. (Nothing wrong with any of that but I'm somewhere around 103% sure he wasn't law enforcement.)

    Sounds pretty unlikely based on your description. And, you'd think a young security guard would be wearing his uniform if he was carrying.

    We have some pretty lame OCers around here who think that wearing a Cracker Jack box Handgun Carry Permit badge makes them legit. One of them told me, "That's what you gotta do. I'm friends with the cops around here and they say that's how you gotta carry so they know you're not a bad guy."

    This is open carry gone wrong, as I'm sure you all know.

    I worked Security for a While (both armed and unarmed) and the first rule before you go anywhere is to loose the uniform.... including the badge. If it was a security officer hes breaking rule one... and in TN if your an armed officer and you don't possess a carry permit, your have to remove and unload your weapon before you leave the property where your posted. Had to deal with this for a few months waiting on my permit to arrive when i was 21.


    PS: incase i was not clear enough badge = no terrible idea

    that's funny. because I don't know of a single LEO who's ever said to wear some form a badge that can be mistaken for an LE badge.
    they love our milk and honey, but they preach about some other way of living, when they're running down my country man they're walkin' on the fightin side of me

    Right. Very mind-numbing...
