Hopefully they will train the 911 operators in what the new law says.
Police also will have to determine how to handle calls from the public when someone is spotted carrying a firearm.
If Midwest City chooses to expend its time and manpower on this it is their choice. However I do hope that if they do take this course of action they will train their officers how to do it without turning it into a unpleasant confrontation.
Midwest City police will check for permits when they encounter someone openly carrying a gun, Assistant Chief Sid Porter said.
“When public safety comes up, that is No. 1,” Porter said. “If we see someone carrying a weapon in a holster, they have to have a permit on them and would be asked to show it. Anybody with a weapon on their side is considered a suspicious person.”
As far as everyone who open carries being a suspicious person. Suspicious of what exactly? While I will take note of anyone I see with a weapon that does not mean that I suspect them of being some kind of criminal.
