    I have lots of comments....but will withhold most of them for now.

    Well except for one.....my wife said when she asked me if I was one of those opencarry guys I should have said "what theres, a site for us?"



    Ok I am a little slow when it comes to some of this computer stuff I couldn't get it to just show the video, sohope you don't mind some picnic pics.

    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    ...yes she was....two female officers responded first, although the other didn't approach me. Officer Aimu was involved in the last altercation, he was the one officer that was not being a jerk, and was smiling and laughing as he recognized me walking up the sidewalk.

    Overall there were several vehicles that showed up. I feel it was a Columbia Bank employee that called, yet that was while I passed earlier at least 15min before this incident.

    Since I am single I should probably walk around until she stops me. LOL.

    "Why yes, I do frequent opencarry.org. I'm also on eHarmony. Any chance your profile is up there?"

    Can we invite the officer from the video? Just for the sake of having law enforcement there.

    We have met at Ihop a couple times for lunch, plus had a picnic down at B-D Park but probably before your time.

    Dinner is an awesome idea. Sometime in November?

    The funny thing is that I have never had one single problem and I have been open carrying routinely in Whatcom County and Bellingham for quite some time now. Over a year I think, since I found this website. Oh well. I'm happy to let SVG educate them. My ulcer is just now going away from my divorce.

    Yep that's on the intersection of Kellog and Meridian. Costco was taking forever to do my tires so I got all hopped up on Starbucks coffee and walked to the gun store and then back up to Wal-mart.

    November get together sounds good to me.

    Krazihchinaman, PM me if you wanna get a coffee or something before that.

    Me too.

    PS What kind of video camera were you using? Was it a "concealed" camera or were you just holding up your phone during the conversation?

    Holding phone, I actually used the qik service too, but it saved it in my phone also. The video is way better on my phone.

    How can anyone say we are anti LEO, this thread has turned into a pro Hot female LEO, thread......lol.

    I'm guessing if governments want to violate our rights they just need to hire good looking females, they could get guys to capitulate to anything......lol.

    Hmmm... OC around Bellingham to actually generate an LEO encounter per Heresolong's post... hmmm...

    Semi-OT but I can't OC off my own property on foot without a CPL due to my proximity to a school; and if I did so and then got in my car on public R/W I would be violating two laws simultaneously... makes a strong point for myself getting a CPL, even for OC!

    Those worries are the main reason I got my CPL. We need to do something about that confusing federal law, how the hell does it affect interstate commerce?

    Oh, but Heresolong only wants to generate LEO encounters with friendly female officers.

    Agreed. It needs to be challenged again, there's no way it would stand up. The commerce clause was never meant to give the federal government the power to forever after regulate anything that at some point in time happened to be sold across state lines, and any act or object affects interstate or foreign commerce if you throw enough silly and hypothetical relationships into the analysis.

    Perhaps after the Montana suit is resolved - let's hope that suit restores some boundaries to the commerce clause, which would only help in a challenge of 18USC922.
