    Military use of public property

    I was recently trying to OC on a parking lot near a mall (which was closed) on my way to a shopping center and was asked by police and military to leave because of a military exercise there.

    How do I get information about a stop where my rights were violated?

    I cannot (should not?) go into all of the details yet (names mostly), but I need to know how to get a list of the officers present at a call where I was verbally threatened, handcuffed, disarmed and detained for 30 minutes for no other reason than open carry, which all 8-10 officers present...

    Great KCMO cops

    With all of the bad stuff going on with LEO's, I just have to make a post about two great LEO's I met tonight. My mother-in-law had $500 stolen from her purse in her apartment, PROBABLY by a "friend" who was visiting when I stopped in to pick her up. The two officers that responded to the...

    OCer gun taken at gunpoint in KC?

    Someone recently tried to tell me that an OCer had their gun taken at gunpoint recently in Kansas City. I could not find any news stories or forum postings to verify this. Has anyone else heard or seen this? I have a strong suspicion that this is a story by a CCW advocate meant to discourage OC...

    September OC meet?

    Did I miss a thread on an OC meet in KC for this Saturday? Or did I just start one? :) Or should we do it on Sunday this month as a way to observe 9/11? I think it is time to go back to the plaza. 9/11 and the recent gunshots on the plaza WILL bring up the level of nervousness so careful...

    OK, I have to admit being slightly nervous after exiting Advanced Auto Parts today and saw 2 police cars right outside the door calling out at the dozen people standing out front, including my 2 daughters and I, asking if any of us had heard gunshots. I was 15 feet from the officer who asked...

    OC in CVS in KC

    Apparently the CVS at 95th and Blue Ridge in KC is off limits to open carry -- at least, that is the opinion of "SGT" Stanley Johnson of the security service who was there yesterday afternoon. He claims that it is a new CVS corporate policy. My wife and I have OC'd there for over a year with no...

    Charity or Community Service event

    I thought we might want to think about a charity or community service event that could allow us to raise awareness of both our own activity and something else important in our community. Any ideas? I have seen roadside trash pickup but nothing else like this by other OC groups. It would be nice...
