It's 11:00pm July 4th and I have just returned home from an incounter with a LEO in Marble Hill, quite funny actually.
It started out, I was aprked in town wathing the traffic and it was getting late and I was about to go home...and wouldnt you know my truck wouldnt start, since I know the local sheriff I called his office to see if he could come down and give me a hand and wouldnt you know he wasnt in. But the dispatcher said she would have one of the city officers come down to where I was.
He arrived and I saw him look at my pistol I was carring but he never made any comment. he jumped my truck for me and we stood there and talked for a few minutes and I got in my truck and pulled out of the parking area.
I made a short stop at McDonalds before leaving town, I went in placed my order and I had to wait a few minutes so I sat down, well..the lady came out with my food and I thanked her and went out to my truck. As I was pulling out of my parking spot the very same city officer pulled in with another squad car behind him, both officers walked over to my car and the officer that jumped my truck told me (very politely) that I wasnt to wear my gun anymore when I went into McDonalds because it made them very nervous. I (very politely) told the officer that they didnt have thier building posted for no weapons and I also told him that I had been in McDonolds countless times while wearing my gun and that the only thing that the manager ever asked me was"are you a bounty hunter?"( I guess he thought that because I wasnt in a uniform)I just laughed and said no....
But the officer said that he didnt want any calls from them because of me wearing a gun in there. I reminded the officer that it was right to carry and that they need to post the building if they didnt want weapons in there.
Since I've known the chief of policefor several years I will have a talk with him monday morning. I dont expect any problems but I will inform him that I will continue to wear my pistol.
