Police ticket man who wore gun in store | The Columbian
"A man who was seen in a Vancouver supermarket with a handgun visible in a holster — prompting a call to 911 on Friday — was ticketed and released with a court date, police said."
This happened near where I live. I stopped in the store minutes after if happened. One of the clerks told me what happened and I wasn't surprised. Vancouver is a great city, but our police force leaves plenty to be desired.
I can't wait until the judge throws this out. I'd like to see the cop get some education on state firearms laws, but chances are he won't.
Anyhow, over on opencarry.org an event is being planned in response to this.
Vancouver, WA Open Carry Event
I don't own a handgun, but I'll be there in support. If anyone here is in the Vancouver, WA area feel free to join in!
EDIT: According to the mans wife posting at OpenCarry.org, the police also confiscated his firearm. scroll about halfway down th page.
