Robbery / Disarm
Not a scenario, this really happened.
From Potomac News Police Briefs August 1, 2006
A 21-year-old Centreville-area man was robbed while walking on Newton
Patent Drive in Centreville, Fairfax County Police said. About 4:10
a.m. Sunday, two suspects approached the victim from behind, and
placed a metal object up to his head, said police. The robbers took
the man's handgun, which he was openly carrying, and ran away. He was
not injured. The robbers were described as black males wearing dark
Anyone with information about this incident or the robbers is asked
to call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) or the police
non-emergency number at (703) 691-2131.

Sounds like a guy who bought a gun because he didn't feel safe while being up and out that early. Centerville has slowly been sliding that slippery slope...... I wonder if that was his first time carrying, too. He could have been out doing that at 4am to see how it felt to walk down the street with it. I don't know, but I think Ron was right.... DEFINATELY Condition White. Sheep in Sheepdogs clothing.
I just can't imagine HOW he didn't bother to step aside or even hear these guys and he did nothing.

Con' white and open carry - very bad juju. Con'white and concealed - still bad juju, but just not quite so likely to have the piece stolen.
And - 4.10 am? - con' orange would be more appropriate anyways!

Hide it and freakin' blow away the guy when he puts the "object" up to your head....

Guy obviously had no business being armed. Just the type of story for the hoplophobes to point to and say, "I told you so!"

or possibly... the guy made the story up to explain where his registered firearm went.

Open carry by non leo's, can get tricky. I remember when I worked for
an amored car service as a guard. When delivering money people would always make threatenig comments, some jokingly also. However, when a guy is guarding 200,000 bucks in a bad neighborhood don't joke with him. Anyway, quit that one because the open carry just drew too much attention.
Listen, Think and React.....Nuff Said.....

Not good, sounds like the guy needs better training or judgement. (or both)
