Thread: open carry meet up
when and where would a next open carry meet up in vegas area would sure like to join in
I'm also in. But if you want to meet earlier...
If anyone isn't a fan of the Super Bowl and would like to meet up tomorrow, me and DONT TREAD ON ME will be at the DUI Checkpoint on West Flamingo and we will of course be open carrying. The cops told the media it is at Decatur, but in reality, the checkpoint will be further west on Flamingo, just past Lindell at Duneville. We'll be hanging out at the checkpoint for a short time to evaluate whether police are obeying the law. Out of the last 20 checkpoints I have visited, they only had ONE that was legal. When we find illegal checkpoints, we notify the supervisor of the problems and then get out our "POLICE AHEAD" signs and warn oncoming traffic. For this task we will likely move down to Decatur so drivers have ample time to read & understand the signs before reacting.
Based on my reconnaissance, I would guess this checkpoint will not be setup compliant to state law. The law requires warning signs be posted 750 ft prior to the ENTRANCE to the checkpoint, which is arguably the last legal turn before you are forced to go through the checkpoint. Police argue the ENTRANCE to the checkpoint is the stop sign at the very end of it. I'm not sure if they understand the definition of that word, but they haven't gotten it yet....we'll see tomorrow. If police block the left turn between Lindell & Duneville, this puts the requirement for the first warning signs back 750 ft before Lindell. If they don't block that left turn, they're furthest measured distance puts them at least 300 feet short. Either way, based on the evidence currently at hand, the checkpoint will be out of compliance.
