I don't think I misunderstood anything. The OP said and I quote;
"It is after you get into the park that the "warrants alarm" comes in. People who are not aware will call the police. We have a lot of work to do in this area."
Regardless of whether the sheeple call the cops or not, it still doesn't warrant alarm and the City Attorney should know that and make sure the cops do too thru the new training bulletin. Otherwise the City attorney is not doing his job.
The OP isn't claiming the city attny said that though. The OP very clearly says this is "his take" on the conversation he had with the city attny. I read the above as explaining why education is needed, so people aren't alarmed.
I get 911 calls from people "alarmed" that someone is taking a picture of their house (happens all the time and is perfectly legal). People are in fact alarmed and either don't realize there is no need to be or just plain disagree and think it should
be wrong to OC.
Fact of life is, if we get a MWAG call, cops are going
to be sent out. NOTHING wrong or illegal about that. Now what the cops do when they get there may become an issue, but they are going to be sent none the less. To get a call, not send cops because carrying a gun isn't illegal and then to have that person commit a crime would be derelict.
You can't blame the city attny, mayor or anyone else for irrational people being freaked when theysee a gun. Sounds to me like the city attny is onthe same page, he understands it. The next step is to educate the public.
Fetch, please clarify on this point. I hate to see someone being called a moron when they are on our side.
