As far I'm concerned, you did straighten her out.Just got back from running a few errands and had a brief encounter. Went to two places Kroger and Thorntons.
In Kroger I was OCing My FNH FNP-9 at 3 o'clock in my Blackhawk OWB leather holster. (Love this holster btw!!) Went in to grab some ice cream for my mother who is not feeling well and is having a birthday today. Walked in grabbed what I needed, went to the self-checkout line, paid for my items and left. Not even a sideways glance. I didn't expect one as I always OC in this store and have never once had anyone say anything.
Get in my car and drive just down the road to Thorntons to grab a few tall cans of beer, and a large MT. Dew fountain drink. As I am filling up my drink one of the cashiers comes over to me and here is how the dialog went:
Cashier: "Do you have a concealed carry license for that?!
Me:" It's not concealed."
Cashier:" You know what I mean! Do you have a license to carry that?!"
Me:" I don't need one. I am open carrying.
Cashier: "You HAVE to have a license to carry that in here!"
Me: "No, again, I am not concealing it, it is called open carry. You can look it up if you want to, in fact I suggest that you do. No license is required to openly carry a firearm in Kentucky."
She then rushed back behind the counter and picked up the phone to call what I am assuming the police. I went about my business, finished filling up my drink, grabbed my two beers, paid and left telling the other cashier to have a wonderful day.
I thought about hanging out and waiting for the police but didn't for two reasons.
1. I had ice cream from Kroger in the car.
2. There currently are no signs on the door prohibiting carrying of firearms on the premises and I didn't want to give them an excuse to put one up by causing a scene and trying to convince the cashier that she didn't know what she was talking about.
I am sure there are those on here that will say I should have waited and straightened her out but while I support OC I don't feel the need to throw it in anyones face unless I have to and my rights are threatened.
Have a good day all!!
