    Is being a man with a gun illegal? If OC is legal where this occurred then the cop was out of line to establish contact.

    I am so glad I live in Arizona where OC is so common that the cops never hassle people about it.

    Cops have the same right to walk up to someone and ask them questions that you or I do, there's nothing that says you have to answer them but they are within their rights.

    Push the issue? You deserve what you get when you act like a punk. Most of us won't hire a person who has an arrest record over an argument with a cop. Think about that.

    Even if you did repeatedly cover and uncover your sidearm with your shirt, in order for it to be "assault," doesn't it have to be "threatening" or "menacing" and directed toward someone? Think about it, who the heck am I assaulting if I'm out in the middle of nowhere, I cover and uncover my gun several times, and no one else is around?

    the libtards are pushing through laws that say you cannot discriminate based on background checks that show criminal records for minor crimes

    This is how you remain silent.

    Not completely true. A half truth is the same as lying by omission. In WI, if a stop is solely because the officer saw you open carrying, then it is in violation of the 4th amendment. They may not imply in any form that it is mandatory that you speak to them or show ID, though they may ask. State AG (J.B Van Hollen) is very clear about the state's position on terry stops.

    Any half ass lawyer can "prove" to the court that it was a threat. Interpretation is fluid and varies with each individual.
