Which is not to say you're suddenly a criminal doing criminal acts (despite the risk of being hauled in). No threat, and no reason to believe there will be a threat. That really should be the standard. The mere visibility of a firearm does not constitute a crime, no matter that it is held as an illegal act and worthy of being hauled in and charged with something. It's a sad salve to people's consciences that does nobody any good.

I am afraid you are correct, in Tucson and Phoenix there are a lot of sheep. Down here in Sierra Vista things are a bit more lax.
Half the city is either Retired Service or their families.
The sight of a weapon does not panic them.

Open carry is legal in Ohio, so I wouldn't worry about it myself. I keep mine covered, but if it ever gets seen so be it.

You bet that's what happened, the dispatcher got the clothing description and the officer knew it was he and checked the plate before he proceeded and it came up CCW.

NC's open carry laws are nebulous under the best of circumstances. I've never heard of anyone in the gun community recommending open carry since the determination of a problem is up to LE and the judge. The simplest solution is get a CCH and be done with the ambiguity of open carry.
Signature? What signature.

ccw9mm, you're right, and a REASONABLE officer would surmise as much. A statement like that was included to appease the anti gun groups who KNEW they would lose in the CCW legislation had such things placed in the law during the process.
