    Well guys and gals I am starting to see why the ocw move is slow. You cant find an attorney. Ive looked high and low Ive had calls returned from 3 now and nonehandleplaintiffs cases or they either have a conflict of interest. One law firm did permit background checks for the city ofBirmingham and said they might have a conflict . Another law firm thats close to my area said that they handle some of the insurance lawsuits for the city that I live.

    Please guys and gals help me find one. I want to take this all the way . I just need some backing. IfI have to go all the way to supreme court for us all. I just cant do this alone.I can not believe a permit can be pulled because someone ocw and they know you have to have it to be in a vehicle. They know you cant walk every where and takeing the permit doesnt keep you from ocw it just keeps you from driveing with one a weapon and also keeps one from protecting ones self, family and property in vehicle. Dont you just love the law

    I have found one attorney and hes over 200 miles away.

    Im ready andI have a lot of time.

    I have no idea if he does this, or perhaps just can refer someone.

    I would check with the Patterson Law Firm (Huntsville), Robert Patterson.

    I have looked all day and talked with so many. Theres just not any I have found that knows anything about the 2nd amendment or the ocw. But most have said seems weirdI wasnt arrested if LEO saying its illegal to ocw and even mor strange they gave me my weapon back.

    No whats strage is not finding an attorney. Dang no wonder so many go to jail over this stuff andI see why most wont even try it.

    Does any one know how to contact O.J's attorneys he had on his first case:celebrate

    That is a joke :celebrate

    Hey Man, i haven't disappeared. Monday and Tuesday for me are one long Monday!

    I made a donation and joined GerogiaCarry.org Tomorrow i'll write an e-mail to the President and Vice President of GCO, they are both lawyers and have several lawyers on the board and as members. I'm sure one of them will either be interested in representing you or will at least recomend an attorney that will. We will help you all we can, and we will recruit AND GET more support, because if you go through with this, it will help everyone else. I'll let you know when i get a response.



    If i make make a suggestion that will be VERY benneficial...While you have some down time, if you have microsoft word, go ahead and create you a case file. Type out a timeline of everything that has happenedto you. Use as many exact dates as possible. Be sure to include all details, time of day, acurate descriptions of locations, ect.Be sure to keep all statments as accurate as possible and notate exact quotes vs when you paraphrase. Have your wife type a statment describing what transpired at Capn D's. This will do a couple things. It will prevent you from forgetting anything. It will make sure you have things worded correctly. As is with anyones memory, there are nuances and word and thing you will remeber each time you re-read it, ensuring you left nothing out. It will make it easy for a lawyer you consult with to get a factual summery of your case with your having to tell your "story"... especially helpful if you consult with several lawyers. It will also make you appear very determied and organized, in other word, a very good client to work with.

    Hey there you are lol....YehI have all that already. As a matter of factI have every fax I have sent with the fax receipt showing it was recieved and also. I have wrote down every time, date, and confursation I have had when an officer has questioned me about me ocw. I also have got my emails and also one email that not only has my whole life, work history and military back ground which was 45b small arms repair . Also in that same email I tell the story in full detail of both times my permit was puled as to whoI talked to, what was said, with what happen, and when it happen.

    It is very detailed. I had to make it for the attorney who typed up the demand for for the city that took my weapon and permit that they had 5 days to return my permit orI was fileing a complaint against that officer with his department and the SO and send a copy to the ABI. But asI stated before this attorney is far away and was just helping me by typeing the demand and wording it like it needed to be.

    Im loaded for bear I just need a guide to take me to the bear. Trust meI have more thanI need and and have every contact ive had with any LEO and so Dept documented.

    AlsoI was thinking if a fund was started to help with legal funds when I do hire an attorney I wouldask them to send the money straight to the attorney thats hired and if we win and the judge orders the city and or SO to pay for my attorney fees then I would have the attorney send back to each that donated all there money with some intrest.

    The fund with intrest is just an idea asI do not want to make a dime on this for my self. I want to make a wrong right and do this for everyone not just myself. I am ready and willing to take this all the way asI have aton of time and am very fired up about the right to bear arms and the waya citizen is treated and made to comply with the believes of a few who are in power.

    I am a life time member of the NRA and I have already talked to them and thereila branch,did this even the first time my permit was pulled. The number they gave me, one was disconnected, and the other didnt know what ocw was lol.

    Trust me when you call an attorney and you ask them about ocw and the law and they say ocw whats that??? I know its time to hang up and call someone else.

    I have also worte to them again and am waiting a reply.

    But you have a good idea. Thanks

    OMG ......Great sites and to think it started as a joke.. I just called them. I think I have a live one here guys.

    Thanks man ..I talked to them for awhileand the person has took my info and statement and is forwarding it to an attorney in there office in huntsville. She said and I quote (sounds to me you have a few issues misconduct, abuse of power, civil rights violated and possibly injury emotionly) :what:I was like injury!!!! she said yes the officers action of disarming you inside the place and causeing a scene and putting the public in danger and myselfby takeing of my weapon and permit if lawfuly possessed) may or could be considerd emotional damage. She said she wouldnt have passed this on to them if it wasnt a good case as her job was to screen calls to see, one if its a case they would handle,and also a case with merit.

    So she said if I did nothear from the Huntville office in 1 week call back.:celebrate

    So does anyone know if maybe theAlabama code 15-5-30 or15-5-31 would come into play here as the officer took my weapon and didnt give it back till 3 days later http://www.legislature.state.al.us/C...975/coatoc.htm

    Section 15-5-30
    Authority of peace officer to stop and question.
    A sheriff or other officer acting as sheriff, his deputy or any constable, acting within their respective counties, any marshal, deputy marshal or policeman of any incorporated city or town within the limits of the county or any highway patrolman or state trooper may stop any person abroad in a public place whom he reasonably suspects is committing, has committed or is about to commit a felony or other public offense and may demand of him his name, address and an explanation of his actions.

    (Acts 1966, Ex. Sess., No. 157, p. 183, §1.)
    well you werent breaking the law OC is legal in Alabama

    Section 15-5-31
    Search for dangerous weapon; procedure if weapon or other thing found.
    When a sheriff or other officer acting as sheriff, his deputy or any constable, acting within their respective counties, any marshal, deputy marshal or policeman of any incorporated city or town within the limits of the county or any highway patrolman or state trooper has stopped a person for questioning pursuant to this article and reasonably suspects that he is in danger of life or limb, he may search such person for a dangerous weapon. If such officer finds such a weapon or any other thing, the possession of which may constitute a crime, he may take and keep it until the completion of the questioning, at which time he shall either return it, if lawfully possessed, or arrest such person.

    (Acts 1966, Ex. Sess., No. 157, p. 183, §2.)

    Yes injury, you were made to 'strip' in mixed company, resulting in much
    embarrasment. OMG, there were children present.

    As for 'Johnny' "brain don't work, plant him in the dirt"


    Also, hadn't thought of it before. But as a manager and someone walking
    in off the street, I would be very leary to admit to security cameras, also
    if I don't want employees to know about them. Could be a corporate or
    coverage policy to deny. It is a sad time we live in but you do need to CYA nowadays. So have you attorny double check.

    Good Luck

    Omg I an attorney that said they will take my case and i have an appointment on the 22 of oct.....

    They said they do handle contingency and would need to look at my papers and case first to see about that there fee 2500... I was like well thats cheaper then the 5000 or 10,000I was told my antoehr attorney just for retainer..

    So....Ok guys now the time to put up or shut up ( so to say). Someone in this blog or another ask you guys to help with donations. If for some reasonthe attorneycant or wont do this on contingency will all of you be able to help meon this by donateing some money to the attorney for fees???I will ask him when my friends from this club send any money and we win or case I want there money returned in full with intrest..

    Does that sound like a good idea. That way your sending it straight to an attorney and not some guy u just dont know andI would have a paper drawn up and send it to each who wants to donate.. Let me know if anyone has a better idea or a way to make them feel safe if that donate..

    Im praying he does this on contingency ..Please, Please.

    I hope he will help me and the group as a whole.I am also see if he will think of helping others here in alabama and maybe we can take this to the higher ups and find the permit to carry in a vehicle is uncontitutional that way we could ocw and not need a permit unless we ccw

    I think a vehicle is an extention of your home.

    Thank you guys and gals
