"When You See Open Carry, Call 911"

As much as I'm tempted to blow this off as troll page, experience here and elsewhere tells me different.

And we're the ones (gun owners), accused of "living in fear"

About
I am starting a grass roots movement and encourage everyone to participate. If you see someone carrying a firearm call 911 and tell them the person is threatening others with a gun. Then sit back and watch them get spread eagle and patted down.

Description
I am starting a grass roots movement and encourage everyone to participate. If you see someone carrying a firearm call 911 and tell them the person is threatening others with a gun. Then sit back and watch them get spread eagle and patted down, questioned or even arrested. Americans should not have to wonder whether someone brandishing a gun is a "good guy" or a "bad guy". There is no way to know. Therefore, open carry laws are wrong and should not exist.

1. and I hope

the police arrest them for false report, they have your phone number and I would think not come with guns drawn but check the situation first and find no problem, just a false report using police resources that would be better off actually helping someone.

4. If a grass roots movement does start the police will pay little attention to 911 calls about ...

open carry and simply figure it's another boy crying wolf story. Consequently one day a deranged person will actually be threatening others and the cops will not respond promptly and a tragedy will result.

But, seeing as I have zero interest in Zuckerburgs festering empire, i couldn't say for certain.

Personally, I hope it stays up. I'm just as supportive of 1st amendment rights as I am 2nd amendment rights (yeah, I know that only applies to government intervention). It will be amusing and telling to see just how many anti-2nd amendment Zealots take the bait and fall for this charade (note: GCRA denizens, feel free to repost this in your sanctuary and discuss it amongst yourselves unmolested).

14. Unless you do something like...

tell them the person is threatening others with a gun
Then it becomes a crime by giving police false information.

What would your opinion be if a person legally carrying their gun is killed but responding police because they think the carrier has been waving the gun and threatening people?

in an area where not prohibited is legal. It doesn't matter who likes or does not like it, it is legal.
If the person takes it out of the holster in public, that might be considered a threat.

Harshly and with extreme prejudice.

6. Another internet tough guy.

They're the type that would pee themselves if the police knocked on their door to discuss reporting a false alert to 911.

They also seem to think that the police will automatically and violently violate someone's civil rights because of an anonymous phone call, rather that a simple, "Hello, sir, we've received a call about a gun, is there any problem . . . OK, thank you, and have a nice day."

Do I need to even mention the civil suits that a city or town would face for harassing legal gun owners (see, Philadelphia), or as others have mentioned, the risk of a "crying wolf" effect.

Or at least paying $$$ in fines for false reporting to the police.



OR... the alternative is shall-issue concealed-carry laws that don't require a thousand dollars and 12 months to get.

I seem to recall a laugh riot thread a year or so ago, that had a poster claiming that if he saw anyone open carrying he'd confront them, take away their gun and call the police while he held them.

It must have happened, my imagination isn't that creative or funny.

56. Just another loudmouth "Keyboard Kommando" - all talk, no action.

The common thread with many gun control types is they do all their gun control "activism" in online threads ... and nothing in the real world.

A major victory for them is getting a post hidden or a poster banned. They also won't put their own money where their "principles" are. They wait for Bloomberg to write checks so they don't have to.

A few years ago we had a poll of how many people actually belonged to the Brady organization as dues paying members. One guy, since PPR'd, claimed he not only belonged but donated over $2,500 that year to the cause. A quick review of the Brady financial profile indicated that their total donations from members for the entire year were under $1,200.

So it would seem that gun control lives primarily online. Whereas pro 2nd people seem to actually do things in the real world, like shoot with friends and family, lobby politicians online, by phone and in person. Example: Illinois Concealed Carry; with 10,000 people showing up in the Capital in March for Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day (I-GOLD) all on their own dime and time.

OTOH, the Gun Control Rally the following week, touted by Rahm, had 2 busloads of about 40 people with the buses paid for by Bloomie.
