    "I haven't seen anyone carrying a gun, but I will keep my eyes open. Who should I call if I do see someone carrying gun?," I said.


    A possible response, acting like a concerned citizen, of course.

    I believe I turned and said, "What's up?"


    "We got a call about someone carrying a gun." Of course they did - I'm sure that's why there's employees from the Federal detention facility across the street hanging out the door and gawking.


    "Okay," I said.


    "We always make contact whenever someone makes a report of someone with a weapon." The rhetoric never changes.


    "Sure," I said, "do you suspect me of any crimes?" By this time, I had switched from my camera app to the background video recorder.


    "No," replied one officer. This is where my video app picks up.


    "We're not trying to give you a hard time," said another.

    "No, that's perfectly fine, I have a License to Carry, everything's fine."

    "Can we see your license, please?" I have to admit, he was very polite with his request at first.

    "No, that's okay. Thank you, though."

    "What's that?"

    "No."

    His politeness was short-lived. "So you're gonna play this all wrong?"

    "It's - 4th Amendment, and the PA Supreme Court just made a decision in the Hick's case, so -"

    "I understand that," he said on repeat, trying to quell my daring.

    "...and I would like to retain my privacy if that's okay with you."

    "It's fine, I'm just explaining to you why I'm stopping you -"

    "Sure, and I appreciate that, I do. I understand that phone calls get made, that's fine, but I would prefer to retain my privacy and I would like for you to respect that."

    The other officer spoke up. "You know why we're here - someone called. We're not trying to invade anything, we're not trying to harass you, we're fully aware of the law, we're just making contact to say hello, that's all it is. We're not trying to be offensive."

    "And that's perfectly alright."

    "You said you have a License to Carry? The nature of the day and age, people are just concerned, and the calls come in..."

    "Most civilians don't know the law."

    "Absolutely. That's why I make sure I'm as educated as possible. So, if that's all, you guys have a great day."
    good vid. However, I would like to retain my privacy has a hard time co-existing with a you tube video lol

    What's the big deal if you haven't done anything wrong?

    Viper's life has become boring since the cops got to know him.

    Did you make contact with the caller? No? Then get to it. Be sure to ask them for their ID. Have a nice day.

    We were at WalMart the other evening and the man working the ammo counter noticed and commented on my carrying a pistol. He did his duty and told me that while he thinks it's silly, I shouldn't be surprised if Asset Protection asks me to leave so I don't "scare the other shoppers," and that if I gave them a hard time they'd serve me with a trespass notice. He made himself clear that he disagreed with the policy, but ever since they stopped selling handgun ammo, they've made a point of enforcing the new anti-carry policy whenever the opportunity arises.

    I was a little flippant about not giving a shit, and I sort of felt bad after the fact because the guy was completely cool.

    Why are you patronizing Walmart after their announcement a couple months ago; of asking people to not opencarry AND that they will be financially supporting the antigun lobby ?
