Kudos to him for exercising his rights. I assume that there was no screaming mothers or children. I wish I could carry when voting here in VA (my precinct is an elementary school.)

Not only was there no one running around screaming, when he was about to exit the school a teacher stopped him and asked him to come to the office.

What law did this teacher use to detain this person by escorting them to this office? Why did he submit to there request to follow non law enforcement to this office?

What dirt bags Kent Co. are!

Well now - the Kent Co. Prosecutor's office seems to suffer from rectal cranial inversion [head up butt] syndrome, now don't they. This is like them issuing a statement that says all people who drive red cars are stupid :eek: It {OC} was this mans only legal choice of self defense! If he had been the bad guy they are trying to make him out to be, instead of going peacefully to the office with the UNARMED security staff, he would have pulled his weapon and rained lead all over them and there would not have been a damned thing they could do accept to serve as bullet traps! :eek: Complete hogwash & gibberish coming out of that office!

"the advice of responding Grand Rapids Police Officers, who told Looman "just because you have the right to do something doesn't mean you should do it." ..:banghead:

Wow, it’s amazing how many people want to have this guy charged, even though they know what he did is perfectly legal. I just read the story and read the comments, lots of anti's out there. I hate that people think we are mad people with confidence problems, or something. Horrible, even people on there who claim to be CC'ers saying only people who should OC should be military and Police. Makes me angry to think some fellow CPL holders feel that way, trying to take away our rights. Anyway though, I am glad the prosecutor did say what the OC'er did was indeed legal since he did have a valid CPL. I always conduct myself in a personable, professional manner and make sure to be courteous to all I interact with, not because I am carrying, but because it is who I am, and I'm sure it is how many...if not all of us do as well. I am proud to be among the OC community and will continue to exercise my right, and show people we OC'ers are responsible gun owners, and probably the nicest people they will encounter.

Sadly there are a lot of CCers out there who are very much against OC. They believe we do it for the attention and that everyone should just CC.

It's very sad. You would think CPL holders would be all pro gun, I guess not. so sad.
All we can do is continue to push the movement and show the people we are regular people like anybody else except we decide to carry to protect not only our loved ones, but also our rights.

Carry On!

Many either, A) take an elitist attitude and think they are somehow "special" because, as everyone knows, not just ANY law-abiding adult should be able to carry, and they see OC as "people without the permission card" despite the fact most of us here have a cpl or 2), they get a cpl but see no need to carry most of the time.
I have met many from both camps, and I can tell you the dichotomy is NOT mutually exclusive. In fact, I know many people with a cpl who cc less than a few hours every month. I'm sure, too, there are many other reasons such as they believe that they know everything about gun laws, even when they don't. More often than not the biggest opposition to OC comes from other gun owners.

I hate it when I talk to people either looking to get a CPL or that have a CPL that say they will/do only carry when it's at night in not good parts of town or in bad areas. They just don't get it.

The previous week Mr Looman showed up with a tiny policemen strapped to each leg, but neither one wanted to do anything but demand overtime and the occasional donut. (I keed, I keed).
