So, where is Todd Edgar our first time poster? Is he a one time shopper?

I didn't keep the news listing on it, it was the mall incident either last year or before. I had to dig to find the charges had been dropped, not sure I can find it again. But it was nationwide news at the time, the original arrest was discussed here in length.

WRAL reporting on his arrest https://www.wral.com/gunman-reported-at-fayetteville-s-cross-creek-mall/14751863/
As far as I know they did not report on the dropped charges, and I don't remember where I found it. I will try though.

Well that was not hard, and WRAL did report charges dropped. https://www.wral.com/charge-dropped-against-soldier-who-took-gun-to-fayetteville-mall/16181183/
Thanks WW, found that incident from 3+ years ago where, quote:

Bryan Scott Wolfinger is charged with going armed to the terror of the public. Police said Wolfinger was carrying an AR-15 assault rifle, military ballistic panel carrier and multiple high-capacity rifle magazine when he was taken into custody. Unquote.

Gee WW, here i thought your NC reference was recent and involved a handgun since that is the forum’s theme, not a LG. Especially since you associated your GATTOP reference to VA where in fact, as i mentioned, several forums members have been actively prosecuted over the charge with their HANDGUNS.

Dropped, sorry LEs strike yet again, as well as the hysteria of jqpublic, quote:
Our client had been at the private property location of Cross Creek Mall for a prearranged and approved gun photo session, there was no signage forbidding such activity at the time and our client made no effort to terrorize or intimate anyone during the relevant time," attorney David Courie said in a statement Monday. Unquote.

Further, this is unequivocally proof of someone losing on an interaction w/LEs who misinterpreted their understanding of the NC statutes and the citizen where the citizen is endure the long drawn out judicial process, year and a half in this case; suffer consequences from employment; as well expend $$$$ for arrorneys.

Please, WW, et al., carry on with your firearm carrying, OC/CC, and drink & imbibe controlled substances [including OTC medications] and thoroughly enjoy the roller coaster sojourn when a nice LE stops to ‘chats’ with you...

Now ya’ll have a good holiday, ya here!
