Open Carry...Lesson Delivered
I have a police officer friend that I have known for many years who teaches CPL classes, Officer Survival etc. It was during a class "Street Survival for EMS personnel" that this occurred. One of his students arrived in class open carrying which Chuck took as an opportunity for a teachable moment. After chatting with the guy about the wisdom of walking around with his gun hanging out for the entire world to see, the guy stated that "It was his right and within the law" Chuck did not disagree, Then he advised the guy that sometime during that 8 hour class, he was going to take his gun from him....and even with the warning.... proceeded to do it 16 TIMES during that class. At last report the guy no longer thinks that open carrying is such a great idea...
