I think the cops are d-bags for lying. And I think this guy is a d-bag for open carrying up to a traffic stop. Three d-bags.

The 2nd cop is the one saying it's illegal not to give a cop your license.

Yes he was. He went there looking for nothing other than exactly what he got, although he probably would have been happier if the officers would have taken it further. Idiot

I'm actually tired of the whole OC "movement". It seems to be similar to pit bulls in that the only time we hear about it is when things like this happen. Why push the envelope. Just live your life. Why bring a video camera. He was obviously trying to get a reaction by doing it.

I do OC myself on occassion but it's shit like this that makes me not even want to. I understand the "if you don't excercise the right it will be lost". Also true that shit like this can make it go away as well. Yes officers need more training on what is and is not allowed per law. This is no way to go about it though IMO.

I don't see a point in open carrying. For one, you look like a total d-bag. Kids, and women, and most men do NOT feel save seeing others walk around with firearms hanging off their belts.

On the other hand, I'm very rarely not strapped, and I feel protected. I live in a right to carry state, so I guess I don't have to worry about not being able to carry. If I lived in a state that prevented people from carrying concealed, but allowed open carry, I probably would have a different opinion.

Do the OC people realize they are giving anti-gun people exactly what they want to ban all carry options?

And this. I support OC and can see where it would be nice while hiking, etc. Also it's easier to carry a larger frame gun, which is also nice at times. On the other hand, I can't think of a time I've open carried in public.

These guys going looking for a reaction are hurting more than they are helping. It's like the idiot who brought a long gun to an open carry luncheon. It makes everyone look like a lunatic.

I completely understand why the officer would want to know who this guy is. I can imagine it would get a little hairy when someone walks up on you while you are doing a traffic stop open carrying or not.

It seems to me the REAL douche bag here is the guy with the camera.

But he doesn't have the legal right to ask simply based on the guy openly carrying a gun. We are right to carry state and there is no law that says a person open carrying is even obligated to carry ID.

No doubt the guy is an idiot but that doesn't change the law. The cop needed to tell the guy to get back, just like he would to any other citizen walking up on a scene where he doesn't belong.

If the officer is working an investigation, could he not do a terry stop on the individual, and secure his firearm for the duration of the stop? I believe Terry v. Ohio said that officers have a right to secure weapons in their immediate surroundings while working an investigation.
