    I fail to see why something is "bad" just because the management of a store doesn't like it. Is shopping at small locally owned stores "bad"? I am sure the big box stores don't like it when we spend our money elsewhere. I think it is "bad" to let a dozen people that may have never even set foot in your state in a corporate office hundreds of miles away dictate what should and should not be done in your community.

    I was treated very poorly by local LEO here in my state of residence last year as after I informed my wife that I was intending to divorce her she repeatedly made false reports about me for any number or reasons. We live in a small town and from June to October I had about 40-50 squad cars at my house. I was pleasant with them, but they were annoyed at the required repeated response to the residence.

    On one instance, I was set up by my ex and arrested. The judge required removal of all my guns into the Sheriffs safekeeping. I endured comments about my guns and what I owned as I stood by as my guns were removed from my safe and taken away.

    I got them all back, undamaged and all is getting on okay now, but.....It is safe to say that I don't have a great love of the local LEO's here. I am sure the feeling is mutual.

    I just did my CCW class here and I don't intend on OC. I don't want to give them a reason.
    I fail to see how the story above relates at all to the statement below. Perhaps I am missing something?

    One will also note that working "for" law enforcement is not the same thing as working "in" law enforcement or working "as a" law enforcement officer.

    Sounds like a bunch of BS to me, but if it is actually true, that sounds like yet another reason not to shop at the big box stores, not a reason to CC over OC.

    If your experience with the local coppers is your reason not to OC, that's really your decision and I understand it.

    The whole OC -v- CC subject has been beat to death and in the end, everyone has to make their own choice. I think both have merit.

    As to your wife or ex if that's the case, a visit to your district/city attorney might be in order to discuss her abuse of the criminal justice system and if he/she doesn't want to pursue it perhaps a law suit on your part is in order. Either way, I too would be thinking about moving away from that area!
