    I live in Omaha, NE, which is a very anti-2A city.
    They have regulated open carry so you have to have an OC permit or a NE CHP and you also have to have your gun registered with them.

    Some of our cities' Mayors and Police Chiefs have also vowed to harass and detain you for open carrying here. In Lincoln, people have been cited for Disturbing the Peace for OCing.

    The last time I OCed into the local Target several "Guests" complained to security, and in a matter of minutes I was escorted out the door, while getting scolded that open carry is illegal. Same deal in a local grocery store the next day. I was asked to leave within minutes by management.

    Bottom line: Be really, really careful if you should decide to open carry in Nebraska. Have a lawyer or three handy should you encounter the police and be arrested/cited.

    Preemption laws are nice. Is there any open carry orgs in NE?

    The OP's experience is the way it should be and usually is for me. Most of my interaction when OCing is with state troopers, we don't have a local police force here. I can't recall anything even remotely negative as far as comments and only a couple very casual comments if there is any at all.

    I worked at a gun shop/indoor range for a year and we always open carried at work and it was a bother to cover up/uncover so in warm weather I open carried. The wife and I were having breakfast on a SAT. morning at a truck stop on I-70 midway between St. Louis and Kansas City (called the Midway Truck Stop coincidently), and since I always sit facing the door my gun was on the outside of the booth. 6 Missouri Highway Patrol Troopers came in and sat at a large table to my right rear about half way through our breakfast. As I started to leave one of the Troopers leaned back in his chair and said “Excuse me; what exactly is that you’re carrying?” I explained it was a Para-Ordnance P-14; basically a 1911 .45 with the mag well modified to take a 13 round double stack mag. He said “interesting; I thought it was a 1911 but the magazine didn’t look right.”
    After work one night I stopped at a grocery store to pick up a few things, as I was walking along the produce I saw a city cop working security headed my way, one of the sheeple had probably reported “Man with gun”. Just like a BG will do a “bump” to gauge your reaction he came up to me and asked “Did you know the hammer is cocked on your gun?” I explained it was a 1911 design, single action, and designed to be carried cocked and locked and incorporated not only the manual safety but the grip safety as well so it was perfectly safe. He said their issue gun was double action on the first shot and that was their safety. I said that I knew their issue gun was a K&K USP 9mm and I was never a fan of the double/single action transition and it took a lot of practice to get the first two shots to be consistent, he agreed it took getting use to. After that exchange he went back to flirting with the office night gal and I finished my shopping.

    Contrary to popular belief, Omaha and Lincoln do not comprise the entirety of Nebraska.

    Go West, young man, go west......past the archway (plus a wee bit more, to get clear of Kearney), and you'll find an entirely different world.

    It was today in Everett WA. I was at a chinese food restaurant. Siting 10 feet a way was 2 police detectives. I was sitting strong side to them.
    I looked at there Glock and they looked at my FN Five Seven. Nothing not even a stare. It has a lot to do with how you look and conduct your self.

    Great encounter! Glad that went well.

    I have a question:

    would it be prohibited to carry if the chinese restaurant was serving alcohol or does that apply only to bars?

    The last time I was chatting with a police officer, we got to talking about guns. He scolded me for not carrying and he confided to me that off duty he carried a 1911A1 cocked and locked. As soon as I mentioned that I had a concealed carry permit he started blading his holster side away from me.

    ?
    Yes, for now. Effective July 14th it will be lawful for Tennesseans to carry in businesses where alcohol is served. The bill was passed by both House and Senate, but veto'ed by the Governor, then over-rode by the same majority that passed it to begin with.

    It will be interesting to see how many restaurants start posting "no firearms" signs. The media has really blown this into a real "hype" as they predict permit holders will carry, get drunk then shoot anyone that accidently bumps into them. (This was an actual prediction by a local reporter). What morons!!!

    gglockster...can you explain why you think he did this?

    He states you should carry, not knowing you have a permit...then shields his weapon from when you tell him you have one.

    He should have been doing this from the get-go.

    I always protect my gun. I have done it so much that I do it naturally,without even thinking.

    I dont care who you are,what your qualifications are or who your daddy is.I always angle the gun away from whoever is closest to me.
