Harassed for Carrying a Gun
« on: November 08, 2011, 07:27:08 PM »

I'd like to hear stories from anyone who's been harassed for carrying concealed or open carry and how the encounter went.

Here in MS all carrying is considered concealed and I only know one person who carried openly and someone at the grocery store snitched him out to the cops (thankfully he had a permission slip).

Also, I'd like to hear from anyone who drives for a living, delivers pizza, etc for their opinions on carrying a gun while on the clock. I am a commercial driver for a major auto parts company and its expressly against company policy to have a weapon but I carry one anyway since I have to drive through several rough areas in the state and actually had a police chief in one town recommend that I have one on me.

According to the asshole feds, I can't even HAVE a gun if I'm a cannabis patient.  Funny how having a medical condition deprives me of a constitutional right.  Fuckers.

Not much here.  I've open carried before they banned it too.  Only time I've been harrassed was when target shooting out on BLM land and I had the Fed Ranger tell me to put my gun on the ground and walk over to him, where he then proceeded to lecture me about leaving shot casings on the ground and how that is littering, etc. and he would write me a ticket for littering if I didn't clean up all of the casings.  I told him I was shooting a cap and ball pistol which does not have casings and he got upset then left.

I've heard a lot of horrifying stories about my comrades out here having troubles with their black rifles, but I don't have a black rifle and have never had difficulties.

I really don't give a fuck about people who carry pistols on their hips.

While not exactly a gun story, I've had security called on me for a cell phone on my hip because it happened to be under a trench coat. Security handled it very well, assuming if it was a gun, I was either licensed to carry it or at least not robbing them. I'm sure actual police would've been less professional.

I have also had a cop draw on me for a pair of wooden bokken my friend and I were toying around with, hitting each other with them and not severing limbs.

Did I mention he was watching us hit each other with them, on said friend's property, for about half an hour? Jackass.

That security person should have been sued. Have they ever heard of the 4th amendment?

That's ridiculous! What a steaming pile.

I live in Canada. You can get a pistol license and a pot license. there is no connection between the two made by the feds when it's done legally.

Mind you, there is no right to carry and pistols can only be used for targets or if you're a trapper.

Canada sucks in most other ways when it comes to freedom.

Can't remember which annual study, but according to a recent CATO Daily Podcast, Canada passed the US in economic freedom this year...or rather, the US fell below Canaday.

Yeah, competing fascist states. Too much bureaucracy stateside, and the OSHED type bullshyte, such as in the FTL advertisement with the guy that invents the anti gravity shoes.

Maybe it's because Canada gives grants and large tax breaks to new business from outside the country.

They are far less paranoid up here of the turrrissts. Everyone is still under suspicion, especially if you own guns.

But make no mistake, Canada is the de facto 51st state. So they won't wander far off the US dictated path. The Canadian economy is 90% dependent on the US economy, so they can't afford to.

BTW, for the record, I'm an American living in Canada. Born and raised in Oklahoma.

What about a flintlock?

They fly under the radar for the most part. They are not under attack from the Un gun nazis. Even in Canada, a ridiculously fearful state of citizen owned guns, flintlocks are not really considered firearms. You do not have to be licensed to own a flintlock. Anyone can walk into a gun store and buy a flintlock.

I would be surprised if they could stop you from owing a flintlock. And make no mistake, although they are slow to load, they are just as deadly today as they were 235 years ago. And there is nothing like it and they are a blast to shoot.

I'm ignoring them. I'm quite well armed.
