understood, I did not say anything bout MWAG call in the post. Thank you for posting on the subject.Quote:
If your original post you made no mention of law enforcement receiving a man with a gun call with that you are correct, they are doing their job of investigating. My point is that if you are engaged in a totally legal activity and not doing anything to draw attention to yourself, why should there be any interaction at all with law enforcement?
If they get a call for a man with a gun and they see you, walking down the sidewalk open carrying along with carrying a grocery bag and your family walking by you what is the reason to carry on the investigation if you are obviously not a threat?
I ask strictly for the purpose of discussion, I never have had a problem with providing ID when asked but it does give one reason to inquire as to why a totally legal act is justification to take up the time of a officer of the law.
What next, reporting someone looking in shop windows in the middle of the day while walking down main street because they "may" be thinking about robbery?
I just wish that common sense really was common.
If someone calls in with a man with a gun report the question should be asked by the 911 operator "what is he doing?", if it's just walking down the street with a holstered sidearm then they need to be educated by that 911 operator that the action they are seeing is totally legal. (Of course based on state and local laws)
Not trying to say you're wrong in any way, just providing food for thought.
