A major problem these days for gun owners is that the media has demonized gun owners who
openly carry their guns outside their homes. I have heard repeatedly that the local school will
shut down when a citizen is seen carrying his gun near by. The police really need to develop a
set of standards of how to talk to citizens who are openly carrying gun instead of over reacting.
They should have stop him and asked to see his Conceal Carry permit and then state ok and
sent him on his way. The fact that the cops reduced the charges means that they know they have
screwed up. The best thing they should do cancel all the charges and explain they made a mistake. The longer this story is in the public domain the worse the cops will look.
