Thread: Can't vote while OC'ing
Went and voted today off of Eastern in a parking lot trailer. I was standing in line when an official voter person asked me if I was a LEO. I told him I wasn't and that I was just here to vote as an American. He said "you can't have a gun here"
Me: Why not?
Official: Because you are not a cop
Me: What does that have to do with anything?
Official: Well you can't vote with a gun!
Me: Why not?
Official: Well everyone knows you can't vote with a gun!
Me: Really, everyone?
Me: I know the "everyone knows that" argument may work in the 3rd grade along with "I'm rubber and you're glue" but could state which law doesn't allow me to vote with a gun?
Official: I will look it up and ask my boss.
Me: O.K. you do that.
After I voted and was leaving I asked if he found the law that EVERYONE knows about. He decided to not answer and then handed me my "I voted" sticker.
GOD gave me rights!!!....The Constitutuion just confirms it!!
Ask if they are LEO. When they say no, ask them even if it is the law, what givesyou the right to enforce it if you're not LEO? Sounds like someone must have set him straight, which is a good thing.

Dang, I guess that everyone doesn't know after all.
Voted earlier at Meadows Mall. No word about me OC. I love Nevada!

Amazing how some people can be so sure of something that is so wrong.
I voted while carrying without issues.
Got done voting today in Douglas County. Deputy was there talking to the poll workers.
Only thing he said was "Have a nice day" when I was done voting.
Gotta love NV, especially compared to PRK 2 miles down the road.
I just got back myself. My polling place was at the local elementary school. But that didn't me from OC'ing.....
...my empty holster. And yes I parked across the street off school property.
