Hi everyone. I am still alive enjoying open carry. If you remember my best friend Chief Krutke, a constitutional originalist like me passed away last August, succumbing to cancer. Last February, he hired me as a City of Prescott code enforcement officer. I work out of the police department. I am planning to buy a new handgun for open carry and keeping my 357 as a backup. My youngest daughter wants to open carry but I'll have to train her on saftly etc... 9mm is going to be adequate for her. My oldest who is in law school and more liber than conservative, finally saw the light on the fact she sees a need for a gun. Law school is downtown Minneapolis. Protias, Firearms. I just turned 60 and now am the most unpopular officer in the city. An unarmed position. My old job of 23 years came to an end when the old folks were let go in 2016.

Thank you! Firearms. Tough loosing the chief. He fully supported RKBA. As you know my position as a civilian officer doesn't allow me to carry. Once last summer in a city meeting the town folks asked if I carry. I said no. The administrator said no. But the people saw me carry after work. The chief told me that if the city asks me not to carry as long as I am their employee, I want to know. He was the best I know who supported our 2A. Cancer took him out.

Still alive and well. Settled into my routine. Still carrying. The new complaint is that I am secretly carrying on my job. The sargent is so sick of it that he wants to see a picture. On my work days, I leave my weapon at home. Don't like it but... any answers? I meant solutions.
