    this is EXACTLY how one should deal with police contact while open carrying.... cool, calm, steady and KNOWING YOUR RIGHTS!!!

    that cop seemed like the kind of person who got picked on in high school....just his demeanor and frail/pale body.

    It was an interesting video encounter with law enforcement.

    Early on in the video, the gentleman stated that he didn't purposefully go downtown to stage this...but just before the police officers came up and called out to the man, he was rambling on about how some of his friends didn't really believe he open carried around town.

    Just sayin'...it appeared that he accomplished just what he set out to do.

    That was nicely handled. The cops were fishing a bit, but everyone stayed polite. The cops knew their limit and didn't cross it.

    If nothing else, I see an activist educating the local constabulary.

    Thumbs up

    I give him thumbs up.

    He did a great job staying assertive yet not confrontational.

    The concept that he felt he had to "prove" something to his friends seems a bit juvenile however.

    Not necessarily so.

    I've invited numerous people to have lunch with me, attend OC breakfasts and dinners - to see us/me interact with the public.

    Consider it a teaching/educational opportunity of the 1st degree.

    While I never have videoed myself, I have been part and party to being video recorded by others.

    I went down there to film a new series of stories that people keep asking me to tell. While I was walking down the street I remembered that one of my friends on youtube had said that They didn't believe that I open carry every day, and that people freaked out when I did. Seems stupid in hindsight, but my intention was to film the reactions of people walking by.
