    Was putting up Christmas lights this evening, just after sunset, when 3 Gwinnett County Sheriffs cars pulled up and parked in front of my house. My first thought was some ill-advised neighbor called the cops out cause I was openly carrying while putting lights up all afternoon. They proceeded to get out of their car and then walk up the street and around the corner. I kept an eye out waiting for them to come back and went out for a quick chat to make sure there wasn't anything I need to know about going on. They said they were just looking for someone and I didn't need to worry about anything. I jokingly said something along the lines of "cool, at first I thought you might've been called about me openly carrying while I put my lights up today" to which one responded "I wouldn't told them to read the Constitution better if I took that call"--we all had a laugh about that. Another LEO encounter that makes me happy to live where I do. And at least I know which house they were looking for someone at all, so that's good. :)

    Another "non"-encounter, Gwinnett Co. Sheriffs officers

    I just gotta ask, why does everyone seemingly have the need to approach Officers while OCing and ask them their thoughts on carrying? If a cop stops anyone people raise hell, but if the cops are not even concerned with someone they run up and start asking questions.

    Not sure if you are referring to me or not, but I most certainly did not approach these officers specifically to discuss open carrying--pretty sure my post made it clear why I approached these officers. :righton:

    MP: Things are changing for sure -- and Butch Conway (Gwinnett County Sheriff) is very PRO carry. He has told me personally on different occasions (face to face and in small groups) that he thinks everyone should carry, especially women.

    He's also told me "Don't even carry unless you have one in the chamber."

    Now if I can just get him to let me carry my gun into the courthouse and jail -- and check in my weapon. Working on that. :righton:

    Don't be so quick: I think the Sheriff supposedly has a different outlook than the Police Chief. That being said, I recall having read a few good interactions with Gwinnett Police recently as well.

    Not your post specifically, but elements of it made me think about it.
