    5 News TV - Open carry Won’t Result In Arrest, says Benton County Sheriff Cradduck


    Benton County Sheriff Kelley Cradduck says his deputies will not arrest anyone who openly carries a handgun.

    “As long as the law is written as it is then we will not arrest any citizen for simply exercising their right to open carry,” the sheriff wrote on his Facebook page on Monday (June 1).

    Cradduck said he posted his views on the issue because an overwhelming number of people have asked for his thoughts about open carry.

    People committing crimes while openly carrying a handgun will still find themselves on the wrong side of the law, he noted.

    The more that becomes the prevailing and accepted interpretation the easier it will be to obtain a strongly 2A pro-OC clarification legislatively... or so I would think.

    I haven't been around in a while, but wanted to jump in on this. Good for Cradduck. However... Most people in Benton County live in a town. What Cradduck said only applies in the county. If someone (like me) lives in Rogers, Cradduck's comments don't mean much. I still have to deal with Rogers police.
