foxxie02 wrote:"the local police are ignorant or dont want to deal with calls of "man with gun"!!" is more often true than we want to believe. But rather being ignorant is that they DON'T KNOW THE LAW due to the fact that they are..........LAW ENFORCEMENT officers. The mentality is that while they pound themselves on the chest, point at the Badge and say something to the effect "-I have a Badge and I can only carry a gun Openly" :quirkyhere's something kind of strange and funny, i spoke with local terre haute police today after reading this forum quite extensively and they still swear you can only conceal carry. then i called the county sheriffs office and they said you can open carry but might think twice about it, and the state police said the same thing. so either the local police are ignorant or dont want to deal with calls of "man with gun"!!
