    Best way to communicate this to Peets, CPK, Starbucks, Brady Bunch, et al assuming the information is verified?

    Synopsis: Bad guy casing restaurant sees two open carriers, bad guys in parking lot with rifles and masks wait for OC to leave to enter. Fortunately, the police pull up just as the OC guys leave.

    Now that is what I'm talking about.

    However, besides suspicion of robbery, why would TWO car loads full of armed people want to rob, of all things, a Waffle House and at 4:45 in the morning?

    I would have thought they were there to take someone out

    Although this is a good provable case for our side, the situation could have gone differently. In Georgia they are allowed loaded and people likely know this. In California we aren't and it is possible the criminal knows this.

    Don't ever presume that your open carry will deter all criminals. Remain vigilant and hone your situational awareness to help deter crime.

    Sometimes the openly carried firearm will be the deterrent, sometimes the fact that they notice you being attentive to your surroundings.

    I agree with that assessment, however, the number of criminals that attempt to take on a California-OCer will still be low if not get lower because some people just don't want to take the chance of taking on an armed citizen, even when that citizen has to bring their weapon into battery. The ones that are brazen enough to do soare the ones we've always had to look out for, they are the crazy ones.

    If anyone finds a "legitimate" article on this story PLEASE post it.

    Not that I doubt the examiner article but I'm in college and it has to be a "main stream media", governmental, or other "acceptable, non biased" source and I'd like to have that to use in my essays. For some reason the liberally controlled academic environment is absolutely screwed up on just what's acceptable as a source. Of course the "totally unbiased" sources that fit their agenda are perfectly acceptable.

    LOL (well actually it's not funny)

    A citizen may not be required to offer a ―good and substantial reason-- why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right‘s existence is all the reason he needs.

    Ah Happy Days! I'm so glad we have a documented case of a crime being prevented because of OC. I added this to my blog just to help spread it around.

    You may consider taking the police report number given in the story and do some research yourself. Skip the "main stream media" and go get the facts for your essay. Could be fun.

    Problem is the school research databases don't include such things. I don't expect a quick turn around on a request to a PD and the essays are very time sensitive. If it were local I'd go down to the PD and request it, under FOIA if necessary, but I'm not.

    they have ten days. They can take more of you are asking for a lot of random info, but if all you want is a report and you have the report number it should be no more than 10 days.
