    Check this out - this guy didn't even have a gun and he got harassed (three guesses why). I hope the bank gets hung out to dry (Walmart too in GSUSnakes case). :evil:

    The closest TX has to a printing clause is if you intentionally fail to conceal. I see nothing in the article that says the bank posted a 30.06* as well. The Frisco PD are going to have a lot of explaining ahead of them.





    TX has a sign law and it's pretty strict- to the posters. For example, if the letters aren't big enough, or two contrasting colors (among other things), the sign is invalid.

    Oh, now that they cuffed and humiliated the guy, the Bank Execs and Police Brass want to talk to him?

    I wouldn't talk to them.

    Wells-Fargo Bank Teller, and Cisco PD, this one's for both of you!

    Just out of curiosity, why was this moved to off-topic (Not 2nd Amendment or firearm related)? It is "gun" related no?

    "possibility of a gun in his pocket"

    "one of our tellers thought that he had a weapon on him"

    "the suspicion that first came up is that he had a gun on him"

    "Ewans said he still hasn't received any explanations from the bank or the police department as to why he was considered armed"

    Well, it's more of an In The news topic to me. Since we're not discussing an actual firearm, but the response to one, I think it should stay out of Firearms.

    Incidents like this is why I never oc. I don't need the hassle of being slam to ground by the police in front of my wife and kids because I choose to exercise my 2A rights.

    Like I've told my fiancee - as long as I'm not doing anything wrong, I am not worried about something like this happening. If it does, there will be an equal and opposite reaction through litigation.

    Well most cops don't think like you. I tried OC'ing to few places and spent more energy checking the environment than enjoying my outing. This guy was unarmed, but what if he was CC'ing with a permit. That teller's suspicions could have led to him being charge with attempted robbery, or killed by police because he showed some resistance.

    triggerman357 shares the same concern that the person in the original news story does, wsweeks2.

    I cannot extend a guarantee to a white man that such a concern is without foundation, but I am utterly without confidence that triggerman357 may openly carry without being molested by the local constabulary.

    Agree. My next door neighbor and good friend is a black man who has a GFL. He and I have discussed the laws in Georgia (and I have tried and continue to try to get him to join GCO). His statement to me just last week hits right along with what Triggerman is saying in that while he has jumped through every legal hoop in order to be able to carry a firearm he would never do so openly because of his concern that he would be "just another black man carrying a gun" (his words) and that the police would treat him as a thug before bothering to check for any credentials. The sad thing about it is that he is most likely right.

    Well, a small minority would. Most would not. The bigger issue is probably the general public making "man with a gun" calls, which is what happened in the original post (even thought there was no gun).

    I hope the guy ends up getting a loan from the bank. The kind with no interest that you don't have to pay back with the amount set by a jury that sees this for what it is.

    I personally don't see why race is an issue - unless *GASP* the cops are either profiling or racist *GASP*!!!

    Look at the guy in VA who wasn't even in the bank. The LEO's in that case are going to find out.
