Question about the "guy jumped out of the dark" thread
I am a little curious as to why the police made the homeowner "secure his weapon" before talking to him. What would you do in this situation. I understand making the officer more comfortable, but I am at my home and well within my rights to carry concealed or open. After all I am a law abiding citizen who is not doing anything against the law.
My first reaction would have been to say no. I know this situation is very different, but when I read the post I "felt" the same gut reaction as when a store has a no guns sign. I say "no, I will not give up my rights" and take my business elsewhere.
What say you?
