I work in LE and I have my concerns about not being able to stop and talk and ID a person walking around with a gun on their side. However, I think every one has a right to carry. I was reading another thread where they talked about how dispatch should respond to a man with a gun at walmart call. I am a dispatcher and as of yet havent gotten my CPL. I do OC from my house over to the local gas station across the street. Just to try it out. I also know the Gas station oxners and they didnt even look twice at me carrying. However, I got a few looks from other people walking in and out.
But my question is. Private property owners can restrict the carrying of a weapon? So using your example of how to respond to someone calling from walmart about an armed man shopping. How am I to know wether Walmart has banned the carrying of a weapon on their property?
I would like to OC but again because of where I work I know I am ok in some areas but could find myself haveing to deal with charges thatr wont stick which could definately cause me to have an unneeded talk or two with my Capt or chief lol.
