Thank you so much for getting back to me so fast. Those are great answers that I am happy to hear. I wonder if it would be ok to post your response on our local gun forum Nevadashooters .com and also Opencarry.org in the nevada section. I know Laurie Bisch(spelling) has done so on both forums, and I know fellow locals would like to hear from you as well

Mrxxxxx – Thks for your question. I am a strong supporter of the 2[suP]nd[/suP] Amendment, and there is nothing illegal with open carry. We need to ensure that officers are trained to treat people with respect and courtesy, at all times.

As far as the registration process (blue cards), I want to examine that entire process to see if it should be done away with. My cell is 812-0015, call me and I’d be happy to discuss it in greater detail. – Thks and God Bless, Dan

Will you remove the blue card?

How will you instruct your officers to treat folks like me who are lawful open carriers of firearms?

His answers seem a bit weak to me. He says he is a strong supporter of #2, but he states he needs to "examine" the blue card issue. Being strong on the 2nd amendment I would think that would be clear to him. He stated that OC was legal, but did not say he supported it. Not bad answers, but not exciting either.

It DOES matter.

I don't want compliance with the OC law, I want AGREEMENT. That will percolate down through the office and affect the way deputies view us.

A deputy whose Sheriff grudgingly complies will feel encouraged to find other stuff to throw at an OC. A deputy whose Sheriff sees OC as the Good Guys won't look too hard for something.
