    I know this is a little far out into the future, but if you have lived in Palo Alto for any length of time, you would be acutely aware of the "Palo Alto Process" and the need to have things well planned out.

    I'm not exactly sure what "open and carry" is, and I disagree with the author's assertion that you will be "unarmed". Other than the odd editing, I do like the quote from the police detective who said that they will protect the participants' right to bear arms. I sincerely hope he means that, because that is exactly what he swore to do when he took his oath as a public servant. If more police, politicians, and other public officials were true oath keepers, this country would have very few problems.

    Yeah, I think trying to quote folks, typing at 120wpm while they are talking, leads to some interesting translations of what they are saying.

    sounds like a good time. i just spoke with det. philip about the event, i asked about the muni code against possesion of firearms, he said he hasnt looked into the code too much, and knows there's one agasint air guns, but isn't too sure about real guns. i told him i know there is one agasint guns, but its void due to preemption. he said he was aware that that would be the case if there is infact a muni code and they have no intention of citing anyone with it. he said he personally has no problem at all with the event, and feels that thats the general attitude of the department. i told him im looking forward to the event and i have had some bad encounters with other departments. he asked what bad experiences i have, as if to suggest that they would try to aviod them. i explained in short my illegal detention and he was said they are going to be sending out some memos in the department to ensure that everything goes smoothly and within the law.

    it sounds like the PAPD and Det. Philip will help ensure an easy-going, hassle-free event.

    gj setting this up, tree.

    Always good to hear the good LEOs quoted in the media. Kudos to the detective and the Palo Alto Daily Post for letting the public know that there is another side to this story.

    I have a feeling Lt Lunny was simply abusing his position to further his own agenda, rather than actually reflecting any actual departmental policy. I very much doubt that many of his co-workers have such evil intentions as to make good on the LT's threat.

    Remember that people like Lt Lunny are playing both sides against eachother. People like that intend to not only demonize OCers among LEOs, but also to demonize LEOs amongst OCers... and most importantly, the public. I hope that we're smarter than that, and I hope most LEOs are as smart as detective Phillip. We're going to need all the help we can get to win over the public to our cause.

    The Bay Area Open Carry group should meet in Palo Alto. That is a Liberal Police State.
    Our reputation in Palo Alto has spread far and wide. :P

    The Palo Alto Weekly finally got around to covering the Facebook Officer story.

    http://www.paloaltoonline.com/weekly...story_id=12430

    Seemed like a good time to remind everyone about the meetup in Palo Alto.

    See everyone in a few weeks!

    What is the situation with K-12 schools in the surrounding area, especially with regards to University Avenue? I think it would be great to be able to walk around that area after the meetup.

    we can walk several blocks in any direction from what i can tell with google maps. also, the meet location is an open plaza, not a business, small groups of uocers can walk in any direction and find several shops to eat or drink.

    Hi guys,

    It will be nice to meet some of you folks. Perhaps we can hash things out about EAST PALO ALTO situation

    By March 6th we should know if they responded to Gene Hoffman's kind offer regarding a certain Detective and corrective action.

    I going from the position that they are going to be arrogant, so we should plan accordingly.

    There was a audio feed on the Heller case, if they do the same for the MacDonald case, it may be advisable to wait till after oral testimony just in case we have some surprises.

    A 2nd amendment march is being held in Wash DC on April 19. It would be fitting that we have a pre march protest prior to that event.
