Re: Tasered for Open Carry
this guy is for certain not the OC LAC we should embrace, sounds like he was a fruitcake. And right or wrong, I'm not sure I'd argue with a taser, I've rode the lightning and it's about the worst feeling in the world!
I OC every day 100% of the time and wish more folks would, especially around the crunchies in the Seattle area. While it may have a few disadvantages, it's more important to keep a right that I have and educate not only LE but the ignorant public. Not every state is an OC state and I think that's criminal, why is it that you can own a gun but not carry it how you want? what's the point of gun ownership then?
And one of the issues with this wierdo is that he had the gun in his hand for at least part of the scenario which can go several ways; some circumstances/places would consider it brandishing while it is also a legal form of OC. Especially when you consider if you're OCing a long gun, it has to be 'in hand' so to speak unless you have a thigh holster for your AK...
