... about this:
You were right…shouldn’t have to show our permit but being courteous, which we are, you did the right thing.Scroll up from the link to read the whole thing.
While I agree that you should be courteous while OC (at all times actually), whether or not you should comply with a request to see a permit depends on your particular jurisdiction. Because CT is a licensed open carry state (as is GA, where i live) law enforcement should have the ability to verify that you have a license and that's as far as it should go. Anything beyond that should require RAS.
Now, if CT were a constitutional carry state, then our friends at the rally might have had a bit more reason to resist unless the officers could give RAS.
All told, I believe that this was a win for OC ... especially as a political protest!
