Pings, and maybe a ping list ping?

I’ll have to watch the rest of the vid tomorrow. It may surprise some people here to hear that I don’t really like what I’m seeing so far...

I wasn’t impressed with the video. I don’t think we can assume that the police are brutally anti-freedom because they stop to ask questions of a guy carrying a gun, holstered or not, on the street.

Maybe they were less familiar with the laws about open carry in the state. But why pick a fight with them by not showing them your ID, explaining who you are, explaining why you carry, etc.? You’re just creating trouble for them and yourself, and what’s worse, stirring up hostilities between the police and handgun owners.

The police are on our side, unless we’re out to commit a crime. And they can’t read our minds to find out if we’re on their side. Maybe they could have been more friendly about it, but I think you could have been more cooperative too.

Walking around, railing about infringements of freedom, and causing a scene just because a cop asked about the weapon is the wrong kind of thing. In my humble opinion.
