Thank you for the information..about the conclusion of the case. That is unfortunate no matter what the guy did provocatively. It is, in fact an affirmation that they(State Bureaucrats) can now do this to anyone, as he lost the case.
Hopefully I won't be deemed a "risk to public safety" for having a long hair style with no criminal record whatsoever, while open carrying next time a deputy or PD that doesn't understand the law(and has a Profiling chip on their shoulder) challenges me for OC'ing...as I do 24/7 except when I sleep. First thing I do when I wake up is get dressed and put on my belt which will always(God willing) hold my .45 cal. It's part of my Life Insurance Policy.
Far fetched? ..maybe. Televise me on local T.V. for such an incident even without an ounce of guilt, even if it's a minor misunderstanding on the LEO's side, then I doubt it would be too far fetched given the negative example this case seems to give the power of "people who tell you what you can do" to those that have no legal right to do so unless under specific legal circumstances.
pick and choose(based on personal opinion) who to try to help/save from leftest bureaucrats that write a note telling a legal permit holder they no longer have the right to carry by revoking his/her license based on their "opinion" or politics. Actually sure we can, but it is counterproductive to Gun Rights.
The more I think on it...the more I can't imagine how he lost at least reinstating his license in this absurd case unless he was declared insane. I don't suppose he was helped by the TFA....?
Too late now at any rate. Has this been discussed/addressed at ALL elsewhere(aside from this forum) in the TFA? I don't tend to attend monthly meetings, though I may attend the Nashville one sometime especially if the Rutherford Co. "Chapter" remains dead as it is.
I'm not seeing to much agreement with just letting a guy rot due to his perhaps over the top provocative actions, but LEGAL
actions nonetheless. I assume he was a member of TFA as well, due to his youtube videos..and the person that Bob Pope asked "do you have your license" while he SELF interpreted a Tennessee State Gun Law like a..very unintelligently in my honest opinion as he interpreted it incorrectly to suit his own opinion just as the police attempted to do with the very same person that addressed him that walked down the street with one in his hand at dusk. Ill advised or not. It was completely legal.
I'll stop now before I get completely off topic with my dislike of pseudo-gun "rights" advocates..akin to perhaps our Lt. Governor or Beth Harwell...or perhaps IMHO a few of our own membership in the TFA. Gun "Rights" until it's not politically expedient RINO's.
There are what now? 4 States with Constitutional Carry now? We need to be the 5th. This is what the Constitution says. It is how it should
Allowing something like this to happen to a licensed carrier for any reason if he was not legally insane or otherwise is kind of horrific considering the implications...which would be that Bureaucrats at TDOS or perhaps another State agency having the ability to arbitrarily "take" someone's rights for exercising
his/her rights with no regulations or laws broken. Just undereducated Law Enforcement and a television/newspaper reporter are apparently all that's required. It goes against Common Sense and Logic as does all
anti-gun rhetoric and actions.
