    Scenario: Never seen this discussed

    So say you are at a ice cream shop where you can legally carry and you sit down and start eating ice cream...a couple tables over you realize someone is calling 911 and they say someone in the store has a gun. You realize your shirt came up and they saw your pistol in IWB holster. Yes it's careless and shouldn't happen but that's besides the point. What do you do? Call 911 and tell them u have ur CHL? Go talk to the people?

    Just curious your thoughts.

    I don't think getting up and approaching the folks that called 911 on you is a great idea.

    Just casually leave. Response time is in tens of minutes.

    hmm. curious to see the responses. i definately wouldn't approach the caller. that would just incite them more. i would probably give them a "look". so they knew, i knew. and then calmy walk to the front of the establishment, and await the arrival of the police. it's all i can think to do.

    Cover the firearm, pull out your permit and driver's license, put them on the table. Finish your ice cream while waiting for the police. Follow ALL instructions when the police arrive.

    OC is legal in Ohio, so I would finish my ice cream.

    Order a cone for the arriving officer.

    I'd just continue on my business and wait for the cops to come. Then tell them I'm a CPL and I'm legally operating within my rights. Pretty simple actually.

    I would not engage the other people. I would enjoy my Greater's Ice Cream (here in Ohio) which would be a double scoop in a waffle cone of mint chocolate chip and Buckeye Blitz or Peanut Butter Chip. If while I was still enjoying some of the best ice cream on the planet and LE enforcement showed, I would follow their instructions. If they hadn't showed by the time I finished my ice cream, I would leave.

    Pretty much covers it, except for the peanut butter ice cream.

    First off how do you know that they are calling 911 on you ? Now days everyone is on their cell so what makes you think it is about you? Playing along with your scenario, you have done nothing wrong you have a CC license and you finish your ice cream.

    Finish ice cream. If the officer's come they come, I'm not waiting around nor am I accelerating my pace because of them.

    As for covering my firearm or pulling out any permission slips, nope. And I'm not following 'all instructions' either. Officers are there to enforce the law and absent any suspicion that I'm doing something against the law, I have no obligation to follow instructions unless arrested or detained.

    I feel the topic has not been discussed because it would be unlikely to happen. People would think you are a LEO or that you have a permit to carry. Now if you were sitting in a place holding it or playing with it, all bets are off and you might be headed to the Grey Bar Motel very shortly with a Brandishing charge.
