    So...if this were Georgia...and it went to court and the guy lost...then its open season on OC. Its just another way to harass someone openly carrying a gun, and get away with it.

    Well, I'm certainly never shopping at Larry's gun shop.

    You would think journalists in ALABAMA would not be breathlessly hysterical at this prospect. You would also expect that they would have known this without having to ask.

    I guess journalists are the same no matter where you go.

    Section 15-5-31 Search for dangerous weapon; procedure if weapon or other thing found.
    When a sheriff or other officer acting as sheriff, his deputy or any constable, acting within their respective counties, any marshal, deputy marshal or policeman of any incorporated city or town within the limits of the county or any highway patrolman or state trooper has stopped a person for questioning pursuant to this article and reasonably suspects that he is in danger of life or limb, he may search such person for a dangerous weapon. If such officer finds such a weapon or any other thing, the possession of which may constitute a crime, he may take and keep it until the completion of the questioning, at which time he shall either return it, if lawfully possessed, or arrest such person.

    So, why did they keep it? :-k

    It's a load of crap for sure. I heard they did something similar in Denver before they won their case against the state to ban OC. They would arrest people for inciting fear in the public or some nonsense like that and all they would need is one person to say they felt intimidated. Are you kidding me? Does that mean we can lock up all the bikers because they look scary?

    That means that anytime any open carries and another person is uncomfortable with it and complains to the cops that the person carrying is going to be whisked away to jail? So then open carry is at the discretion of the people around the carrier? Good thing the 1st amendment doesn't work that way.

    An 18 years old is mature enough to carry a rifle in defense of his/her country but not in his/her own defense?

    Too bad Alabama does not yet have a local gun org on the ground.

    Maybe the NRA SAF or GOA?

    they do, kinda sorta, just it's more like GPO with just forums/website now and my brother is trying to help nudge it in the direction GCO has taken, i told him about GCO and forwarded him the newsletter and he was impressed enough to pass the info to that group. (sorry, i don't know the group but could find out)

    great point, seems that people frequently forget that minor detail don't they.

    They are probably classifying it under "threatening behavior" ... just a guess.

    Check.

    Check.

    Well, I'm sure the liberals couldn't control their screaming, so- Check

    We don't stand up for our rights anymore: Check

    Maybe check.

    Who would want to drive past that guy! Maybe he would get angry and shoot them, like he hadn't been doing for the past X minutes! Check!

    Nope.

    I don't think threatening behavior would fly. There has to be something threatening about it, I should think, like pointing it or muttering something about being the emperor . . .

    People's subjective reaction to conduct is never the standard in any state of which I am aware.
