    Jacksonville

    So I haven't posted in quite a while, but I came across something pretty rediculous today so I felt the need to post. So being a Marine we always have classes to attend. In this particular class a Jacksonville PD officer who has been with the force for 15 years said some rather disturbing and stupid statements. Somehow the subject got onto guns and then open carry. He went on to say that people that open carry in Jacksonville and Onslow county were going to be in for a rude awakening. He said that they are gong to be cracking down on open carriers. He went on to enumerate that since gas stations sell tickets they are off limits, Wal-Mart sells alcohol so it is off limits, and all it takes is one person to call on an open carrier to be charged with terror of the public. Lastly he said that banks like Navy Federal were Federal buildings and were off limits. I was steaming but at the same time I was dumbfounded. I have never heard such BS. I think I will be talking to the Chief of Police

    Pure BS - officer needs to be reprimanded and retrained.
    Better to not open your mouth and be thought the fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.
