    "Yes, OC is legal, but I wouldn't reccommend doing it."

    I often hear the statement: "Yes, open carrying a firearm is legal, but I wouldn't reccommend doing it." coming from police officers.

    The next time I hear it, I resolve to ask the officer: "What OTHER perfectly legal activities do you reccommend everyone else abstain from?".

    I wonder what the answer will be?

    When we went before the local municipalities that banned OC, the question I asked was "what other parts of the Bill of Rights would you prohibit', i gave them a choice "Freedom of Speech, freedom of Religion?". Of course they didn't answer, I suppose they and thier communist, anti-rights, low life bottom feeder, anti-constitutional advisors are exploring thier options.

    Other questions?
    If you pull it, you use it. If you pull it and you don't use it, you've done some thing wrong and you might not get another chance. Think about it before you pack it!

    I think a slightly modified version of that is going into my stock reply fund.
    "What other, perfectly legal, non harmful activities, do recommend everyone else abstain from??"

    errr, well as f'ed up as the muni system is here in the metro area, I ain't sure it is worth it for a newbie to be honest. It takes a LOT of research and effort and crossing the street can change the rules.

    Well, don't go to church, or you will be placed on the "domestic terrorist" watchlist.

    Do you have a strong belief in the constitution? Oopsie, there is another strike against you.

    Believe that police and politicians are actually here to help protect your rights? LOL, now you are just being plain dumb!

    What do you base your first statement on? I've never heard of such a thing.

    Its a bit of a stretch, but unfortunately not much. There have been allusions made by various DHS representatives regarding citizens that regularly attend church could have a higher propensity to commit terrorist acts.

    This in addition to the Prez stating that we are bitter clinging to our guns and religion. If they are associating us being bitter, with guns and religion, there is not much of a stretch here to think that they are keeping their eyes on folks that belong to both groups.

    But in all seriousness, I was told the same thing by Jeff City PD when I called them. The lady was talking to a Captain and he said it was legal but an officer would PROBABLY be called.

    Ah, but it's not perfectly legal throughout Missouri and won't be until 21.75.3 is repealed.
    I'm really starting to like the panic removal occurring in Louisiana following their preemption law hitting the books. It's a law that needs to spread.
