    Ok, but what reason did the LEO have for making the stop in the first place? Just openly carrying a firearm is not reasonable articulable suspicion to stop someone, disarm them, and frisk them. The cop should have kept driving and found a REAL criminal somewhere. I'm so tired of seeing these stories of OCers getting harrassed for OC. It's proposterous.

    Oh please...how about they are both American citizens protected by the U.S. Constitution. Being a citizen means you stand by, defend, and uphold the document like any other man would. Oorahh!

    Hate to break it to you but California law provides that an officer can do exactly that. In Califorina it is illegal to to openly carry a loaded firearm and the law also allows the police to inspect your firearm to ensure that you are in compliance W/ that statute.

    I don't like it but it is the law
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.

    I still think it was staged.

    SWEET! I have a BUNCH of sticks like that! I'll trade you for all your unloaded guns!

    And I guess you always open carry every day in every place it is legal?

    And you never look at someone who has a gun on his hip?

    And you never wonder just what's up with the guy and his gun walking toward you?

    Come on. When I spot a gun I go on defense. Automatically, without a doubt, every time.

    If the police did not harass this guy it's a good thing, since they had no reason to. The police are learning just as we are.

    I live in California and have one of the 45 thousand or so CCW permits. Let's take the good from this story and try not to insert all our rights and bold statements of why the police should not check this fellow out.

    (Not directed at you) It's very easy to huff and puff on a computer. It's a different thing to walk down the street everyday with a gun on your hip. My hat's off to the OP and the LEO.

    I don't always open carry but when I do it's a non event.

    If I notice someone w/ a gun on his/her hip I'm generally pleased that some one else "gets it" It has never occurred to me to "go on the defensive"
