    The calguns foundation is representing him. The case has been pending for the last two years and the settlement seems to cover only legal fees. It also includings a finding that the man was innocent.

    What ! ?
    No $1.00 for the plaintiff ?

    Would hate for him to get beat out of his award.

    I think the average temp on the day I carried was 33*. If I wore a kilt the detractors would have said it was for the purpose of flashing the children who were in the park that day. I was thinking of wearing a burka next time and an ammo belt slung over my shoulders. Maybe, roll around in some dirt and push a shopping cart full of guns.

    CGF still needs to sue to get rid of the 12031(E) check. It won't stand constitutional muster. Another poor UOC incident will fix that.

    I really think it is a Fourth Amendment violation. An LEO following the statute exactly as it is written is detaining somebody with no articulable reasonable suspicion of wrongdoing. Just because a statute says to do it does not mean that the constitution goes out the window.

    Is there a radio code for a MWAK call?

    there are no universal radio codes....which is why plain talk is the only way to communicate between agencies.
    In our agency, 10-32 means "weapon" no matter what it is
    a dispatcher would say that a subject is "10-32 with a knife" or bat, or chair leg, or motorcycle chain, or iron skillet, or shotgun, or any of the number of other things someone can be "10-32" with

    Sheriff,
    I think he was discussing a "Man With A Kilt" call...

    That's what I was thinking. Maybe the cops took issue with the kilt instead of the gun. Were they fashion police, by any chance?

    Or, in jurisdictions that do not use archaic GSP codes, signal 69.
