    One thing to remember with reference to the above link is that his "choice" to open carry did not cause the encounter with police.

    "What? MP, How can you say such a thing!?!"

    Well, in Ohio, no concealed carry is allowed within your vehicle. That is, you must "unconceal" your piece before stepping into the car, and carry openly while driving. There simply is no choice in the matter under Ohio law.

    Also, Ohio is one of those states where it is legal to open carry without any firearms license at all!

    With that having been said, this occurred while he was leaving a gas station, where he did not go inside the store. He simply used his credit card to pay at the pump.

    Now what do you think of the story in the link?

    That link is sixteen pages long now. How does a state-specific site get that much traffic?

    UPDATE

    He has now been charged with failing to tell the officers he was carrying (even though they admit they could not hear what he was saying) and carrying in public (even though he has a license).

    The KNEW he was carrying. Why does he need to inform them of something that they already know?

    Another arrest.

    I guess it is no better if you are concealed carrying.

    Malum may have a twin in Ohio.

    Those silly laws. Always getting in the way of those who are supposed to enforce them.
