    Wow. OCing a handgun is one thing, OCing a rifle is just asking for it in my opinion.

    As much as I would like people doing it, it is kind of unnecessary.

    How is one supposed to provide proof of ownership? I have the receipt for my handgun and a couple other papers I got it with, but I keep them at home locked up, I don't take em with when I'm carrying.

    As for showing ID, I probably would have. Aren't you required to show it if an officer of the law asks for it?

    Wasn't there. But, IMO, they probably asked that question AFTER the part about..resisting..disturbing..uncooperative. They call that 'stacking'. Pretty common.

    Yes, always a good idea to show proof of who you are. Otherwise, you could be someone they are looking for, etc..

    There is a positive outcome. Now they have his prints on file. So the next time, he can say..you've got my prints, why don't you find out yourself.
    :rolleyes:

    He was "creating a disturbance?" Bull crap.

    Also, sorry, but this is America. The police do NOT have the right to demand you identify yourself. "Papers please, comrade."

    What is this country coming to? We are in serious trouble. More jack booted thuggery.

    He's 18. How old does he have to be?

    Anyone who want's to debate with an officer if he asks for an ID, is certainly welcome to do so. None of my business.

    Most cities of any size have bondsmen. A lot of folks I ran into had a bondsman on retainer, and a lawyer. True. Just pay them a few bucks a week when your not in jail, and when the times comes, they're already paid.

    In and out in no time at all.

    i'm with you raven818, If you respect the Officer, most times the outcome is better.

    He's 18, which federally is legally old enough to purchase a rifle and rifle ammo. I don't know the laws of that state/jurisdiction, but it's very likely he is legally old enough to own and carry it there, as well.
    Sounds like a kid wanting to get his name in the paper, "Doing Something", which makes for great grandstanding, and nothing else. In any case, his family will likely never gift him another firearm! The young lady in the picture would have been better served with a regular sling - looks like an ersatz combat patrol crossing the street!

    If he was arrested because it was a LOADED rifle, that's probably understandable, in an urban or even suburban area. It's not the norm, at least not nowadays.

    The "creating a disturbance" line is just so much cop doublespeak. I'm so tired of hearing about cops who have genuinely CROSSED the line to infringe on people's rights that I'm NO LONGER giving them the benefit of the doubt.

    They have to EARN it back. THAT is reality.

    That being said, I doubt that the published story contains ALL the details, they rarely do.

    As USUAL, anything to make gun owners LOOK bad, they'll run with it.
