    The author recommends yes, with the cop attempting to have a consensual conversation.

    I have been approached by cops seeking a consensual conversation. I just ask "are you here to arrest me?" when he answers "no" then I say "I have no desire to speak to you - I am a freeman now, talking to you will not make me free-er".

    I walk daily on the roadway, about 8 miles a day, openly carrying. I have been seen several times by deputies and state police, not once have I been stopped or have they even slowed down. Though they do wave at me, at least since I lost weight they don't point and laugh anymore. I have been walking on the highway since early September. I am sure some yankess taking shortcuts on the road have made calls by now.

    Please note, y'all, that this is referring specifically to the peculiar Neenah, Wisconsin incident, and only generally to a MWAG. It's an UNC academic writing of the Wisconsin event.
    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    It was well written and I agree with the author. I actually agree with both sides, if that makes sense.

    Really? That's all we get to go on? ZERO details about what happened in between? How is that "well written?"

    Also, by the phrase: "man with a gun strapped to his back," I'm assuming this was about carrying a long gun, not about open carry of a sidearm. There is a difference (even if not legally), yet this author ignores that difference.

    since it is concerning a long gun not even slightly germane to OC form.

    See nothing here that promotes the carry of a long gun.

    The OP references the UNC School of Government and application of criminal law. The consideration is most certainly germane to OC of any gun and moreover is of state specific interest to gun owners in NC.

    Appreciate your thought though, but we'll let the thread stand.

    Aparentally some did not follow all the links in the article. One of them leads to this paper.

    This is correct and appreciated moderation--a distinction/difference is recognized between the material and the rules.

    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.
