I didn't read this until today, but I think it is similar to the GCO v MARTA suit, gonzalez suit in WI, and the suit in Springfield MA where the lawyer carried. Armed people eating in a public restaurant are guilty of disorderly conduct when they refuse to identify themselves. PA is an open carry State and there is no shall identify statute.

In addition, with respect to plaintiff Banks, defendants found the following facts significant: he refused to explain why the group was gathered as they were....
So, in PA you're no longer able to freely associate with (openly armed) friends while eating in a restaurant? Reading later:
Specifically, the officers argue they considered the presence of fearful calls to 911 by other patrons, multiple concealed and non-concealed firearms in a public restaurant during business hours which was odd, novel, and, indeed, suspicious. It also presented a potentially dangerous situation, particularly where, as here, children were present.
:panic:
PA Law specifies one must show the police officer the CCL upon a lawful request. Georgia has no such language with the GWL.
