You might want to check out Packing.org today. In the Gun Talk section, under Laws and Politics there is a story about the Hanover Co. Sheriff's Dept. setting forth a new policy to deal with pesky folks who carry openly (as is their right) at public meetings like Board of Supervisor meetings. The officer is to politely ask the person to put his gun in his car. If he/she refuses, the officer is to call for back up, and both deputies are to stand near the open-carrier throughout the meeting. All to reassure the easily frightened public, doncha know.
Perhaps the Sheriff should be asked to read the threads here to see how UNCONCERNED most members of the public are about open carry. This situation practically begs for Phil Van Cleave to call for a dozen or so volunteers to attend the next meeting to see just how ridiculous the Sheriff's Dept. wants to get with this not-so-subtle harrassment.
