The deputy has filed a lawsuit against the person who called 9 1 1 , because he received injuries when responding and the caller did not inform 9 1 1 operators of the danger he was...

    Miranda "Rights"

    I just watched a discussion on the Fox News show The Five about the Boston Marathon Bomber. The hosts all seemed upset that the suspect had been read his Miranda Rights. One even lamented that it was just a Magistrate and not a Federal judge that had Mirandized the man. There was talk of how...

    Boston....was there exigent circumstance?

    While watching footage of the search for Suspect 2 in Boston, I saw instance after instance of LEOs searching private property, presumably without a warrant. I realize that they were looking for a cowardly killer, but I still could not help feeling bothered by the fact that people were allowing...

    Turning Gun Owners Into Felons

    http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/344763/turning-gun-owners-felons-dave-kopel A great article that needs to be passed along. Link it, email it, get it to as many as you can. People don't know what is in this "common sense" background check bill. They don't know most of the language comes...

    Does anyone know what the chances are that the Governor will sign any pro gun bill that comes before him? I realize the importance of working to get a bill passed, but do we know what actual chances it will have of being signed into law?

    Is Anyone else having problem viewing OCDC on a mobile device?

    I have started doing most of my surfing with my tablet, and I am having a peculiar problem with OCDC. When the page loads and I try to select a specific forum the entire screen acts as if it has been pressed(goes blue). After this I am taken to the Amazon.com page as if I had tapped the ad...

    Any of you who use MSN's Bing search engine may find this interesting. I was interested in a finding a concealed carry hoodie and had heard of the NRA hoodie, so I put "NRA hoodie" in the search block to see what I could find. No direct link to the NRA store came up, just alot of stories about...

    Looks like Philly is at it again

    It appears that the police in Philly still have a problem with LAC carrying guns in their city. Though it doesn't make it clear, it appears the man is OCing(since he shows them his gun and there was a MWAG call). Even if he is CCing, being choked by police doesn't seem proper response...

    Why doesn't WI honor our permits, when we honor theirs?

    Recently while looking at what states honored MO conceal carry permits on handgunlaw.us I was startled to see that while MO has seen fit to honor WI permits, WI has failed to do the same for MO permits. Does anyone know why this is? I thought that reciprocity meant that BOTH states had agreed to...

    Stop and ID?

    I realize that whether or not we must produce ID when asked by LEO has been discussed in great depth here. I am of the opinion that KC is the only place in MO where there is specific statue requiring it. With that said, a question has occurred to me. It is my understanding that if I am a...

    Carry in Jefferson Barracks?

    Can someone tell me if carry in Jefferson Barracks in St. Louis is legal? I think it's a city park, but I'm not sure. I was wondering about OC and CC. Thanks.

    How is OC only with a CCW legal?

    I was just wondering how all these jurisdictions that allow OC only with a CCW permit can do so legally. CCW is basically a privilege granted by the state to citizens who have met the requirements established by the state. OC is the right that every citizen is born with. This right is enumerated...

    Anyone know the facts of this old case?

    I was on another forum discussing OC when I got this old case thrown up as proof of the "tactical advantage" of CC. I realize it is an old case but does anyone know any of the facts or how it turned out. http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/police/reports/reports2006/073106robNewtonPatton.htm Thanks...

    Can they take your recorder away?

    I will go out on a limb and say any regular visitor to this forum knows that it is a good idea to carry a voice or video recorder with you when you OC. There are more and more examples showing up, of the logic of this, the recording from Philly only one. I must therefore wonder if as more and...
