I really hate it when people want to give me their unsolicited opinion... I was out front weed whacking the other day open carrying as usual. Mind you this is private property (Since I rent)... Our townhouse is in town along a semi-busy side road and a decently busy sidewalk. We have a small patch of grass and a flower bed that I maintain per the lease. Well I'm there working minding my own business when a lady came up on the side walk. I nodded and she had this look of horror on her face when I turned and she saw my 1911. I had just gotten home from work after a long stressful day. I just wanted to get my yard work done and unwind. I was not in the mood to play 20 questions with some misinformed nosy bitch. Her: *A little bit of attitude* "Do you really need that"? Me: *Annoyed* "Need what"? Her: "Your gun"? Me: "Sure, there are bad people in the world" Her: "Out in the open though"? Me: "Mam, I'm sorry to be short but I'd like to be left alone please. I can carry a gun in the open in the state of PA, and even if I couldn't I'm on private property so I can" Her: "Well I don't think it's a good idea with kids riding around and such... blah blah blah" I had turned the weed whacker back on at this point drowning her out as she walks away visibly flustered as she flips up her cell phone, dials something then looks back at me. I'm thinking "great, this is what I need" I forget about the whole incident as 15 or so minutes pass I'm cleaning up my mess and a police cruiser pulls around the corner and up behind my car on the street. He rolls the window down and I'm still clearly open carry. He looks directly at my 1911, kind of does a eye roll, looks at me then says: Him: "We got a call about a man 'brandishing' a gun, have you seen anyone brandishing a gun"? Said in a semi-sarcastic, I can't believe I'm getting bugged for this kind of crap tone. Me "No sir, can't say I have" Him: "Ok, well we got a call and we just needed to check" Me: "Sounds good, am I free to go"? Him: "Sure thing, have a good night" Me: "You too sir" And that was it. He drove off. He didn't even get out of the car... probably because I wasn't breaking the law... that lady that called is the type of control freak, nanny government, I know whats better for you type of person that piss me off, and what is wrong with this country... I just wanted to be left alone. How do you feel about people who butt into your business? How do you react?
