Seems like a lot of work for a subway sandwich
This is a discussion on longview wa, my first run in with the law within the Open Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Seems like a lot of work for a subway sandwich...
Seems like a lot of work for a subway sandwich
and you think you know the people around my area?even if i had concealed it, it would not have been over.people around here are very biased and closed minded due to their comfort needs.which i am not required to attend to.now what you do in any situation is up to you. i respect that. but i dont allow anyone to push me around, especially when they dont dont know anything pertaining to what they are inquiring about.thanx for your response an opinion. hey have a nice day.
Agreed, bottom line is that even though the Subway is open to the public, it is still private property and the employee was acting as the owner's representative.
If I owned my own restraunt and there was activity going on inside that I didn't agree with, I would want to excercise MY right to refuse service.
Guess I need to think on this some more... thanx for that.

well neither the LEO or employee had a leg to stand on.thats why i got to sit down eat my dinner and go on my way when i was ready.you are getting way too emotionally attached. i got your point. if it was posted and if they had asked me to leave i would have.they obviously were not aware of their rights as employees. move on dude. not gonna feed your need for me to say yes sir you are right.thanx for your opinion.
I sure am glad everybody is over "it". Saves us a lot of work.
Glad everybody is happy.

I understand avoiding conflict in our modern 'correct' society. I am sad that the U.S.A I grew up in no longer exist. You could stand your ground if you were right. Now most people just crawl away when confronted.

When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

Saying that it's none of their business, well, quite literally it is their business. Sounds like everyone had a bit of an attitude for one reason or another. I wasn't there but it just sounds like it from the post. I'm pretty certain that they will go ahead and learn that law and stick a pretty sign on the door just to avoid any further conflict with those who know the law and requirements. They probably don't like conflict as much as you don't. I'm not saying that you shouldn't stand up for your rights but just remember, they also have rights.

I have no problem with standing your ground, but it does seem like you escalated it. I would have answered the cpl question but would have asked for a manager or left and contacted the branch manager about why they were losing a customer. However I wouldn't have given the Leo any of my info.

This is why I much prefer the gray man approach. Unnoticed, unmemorable, unassuming, nonthreatening, low key, blend in, no bubbles, no troubles, all while maintaining the same level of SA, threat deterrence, and firepower as my OC colleagues. Saves a lot of hassles. I save my statements for toasts.
To be perfectly honest your Avatar with you basically aiming a gun at the camera says more about you than you might think,Every time I see it I feel like I'm getting "swept".
