    There is some debate raging in Georgia about whether people should conceal their holstered handguns while in public. Some believe that wearing handguns openly will result in a loss of the element of surprise during a criminal attack, such as an armed robbery, while others believe that wearinghandguns openly deters criminal attack. For Matt Brannan and J.P. Mitchell, who carry openly as a routine, the issue is no longer academic.

    Nope... Sorry ... This can't be true.

    These guys were suppose to be the first ones shot and killed. They were in that Waffle House parading around with their guns on their hips. The bad guys are suppose to come in and shoot them.

    <Sarcasm off>

    Hmm.... bad guy see's two good guys with guns and leaves...tell's other bad guys about it, who are armed and what do they do.... NOTHING... they were waiting for the good guys to leave.

    So the bad guy doesn't want to mess with law abiding , armed citizens. Several bad guys don't want to either.

    Hmm.. how can that be.. :celebrate:celebrate

    I wonder if this would also apply at the college in Alabama where the shooting occured recently?? How about other "Gun Free" zones?

    Unfortunately, we still have a long way to go. This is the Waffle House two hundred yards from the Publix where Cobb County's finest did a tier two stop and handcuffed and searched meon May 13th last year for open carrying. The same Captain Quan is the one with whom I discussed the Cobb Police's policies.

    Man it is nice to see you around somewhere.... Some of us do miss you over at the old place.



    Capt Quan referenced your issue as his example of the negative side of OC right before telling me the story about the positive side, which turned out to be this one. I was very glad to get to have the discussion with him. I also feel that your issue with his department was a big wake up call to START making some changes. When I followed up with him about his officer not knowing we could OC, he was very receptive to the conversation and spent a long time on the phone with me.

    I still think you should come back now and again, and I am still up for that walk down Bells Ferry.

    Thanks... I just refuse to be condescended to (Which means to be talked down to).....

    So, you think that Capt Quan has tempered his officers' barbaric treatment of MWAG calls? (A completely legal carrier of a holstered gun while buying your newspaper?)I still get the impression that he is unyeilding in the CCPD response. He may feel that it is a waste of resoucres, merely because it does not produce any illegal weapon and person to arrest.

    I never got the chance to utter, "Am I Free To Go?"

    BTW... Should you want to review the reports and the audio files, I have them available on my server and can give you access.

    I emailed what I thought was the correct department to see if this is true. Here is the reply I just got back.

    No, I can’t confirm it because that location is actually the jurisdiction of the Cobb Police. The Captain they cite in the story, Captain Quan, is indeed a captain at Cobb Police Zone 1 so the story is probably legitimate. You can call them at 770-499-4181.

    Following this on the tons of boards that it has been linked to I have found a lot of people that are contacting Pct1 and Waffle House Corporate. While I love that people don't just trust what they read. Capt Quan and the folks at WaHo central are probably getting pretty freaking tired of it already.

    I do hope that all the contact to Waffle House Corp does not have them send someone down to the store to "discipline" the manager or the waitress over this.

    Match:
    I do feel that Cobb... at least precinct one, is slowly working on coming around. I know they were in the wrong with you. WAY in the wrong! But you also are pretty much the first person who actually took the fight back to their front door to make them look at what the law says. I have had multiple non-encounters in that area since your issue. After talking with the Captain myself... His words were that he personally prefers citizens to conceal so that his office does not get calls like yours, but he would NEVER tell someone or advocate his officers telling someone they had to conceal, and he would NEVER advocate a felony stop on any person who was open carrying without them having actually done something else.

    You rocked the boat, my contact will hopefully push it a little further.... as the Sheriff put it, Cobb PD is like an oil tanker, if it is going in the wrong direction it takes a lot of time and effort to turn it around. Yes they were wrong, but I do feel they will be put in line if EVERY lawfully armed citizen makes the effort to make contact when something out of line happens.

    But this can't happen! We all have heard the half-baked, has enver happened theories of the anti-gunners that say just letting yourself be killed is better

    And the equally anti-gun concealed-carriers that tell us how waiting to be attacked and then trying to frantically dig out our weapon to fight back is so much better.

    BULLSH!T!!

    An ounce of 'strutting about compensating for a small penis' prevention is worth heaps and loads more than a flock of coroners' gurneys and chalk outlines.

    Too bad this guy wasn't at Fort Hood!

    How man more times does NOTHING have to happen in place of a massacre, before people wake the hell up an realize that Guns are the solution, not the problem? How can the absence of this firearm have been a good thing? It has never been a good thing anywhere else...

    Last time I was back in Huber Heights, Ohio; the WaffleHouse on Brandt Pike at I-70 had one of those ubiquitous "no guns" signs posted. The Tim Horton's across the street did not. Why?

    Because Huber Heights PD was constantly in and out of the Waffle House, I suppose. Man, those are some beefy cops, and the way they eat up those 5-way hashbrowns I can see why. Horton's on the other hand gets maybe a driveby check. But they don't throw a hissy when you come in heeled, or at least they didn't with me.

    On my last night in Huber, a Saturday, I gave the three teenagers working there a $150 tip (split three ways, not apiece) for (1) being so industrious as to give up a Saturday night in July and (2) for being so welcoming to open carry.
