Technically, the police in ND may request your permit and you must show it. At that point, absent other factors, the encounter should be over.I don't agree with frivolous lawsuits, but the police can't just trample all over a persons rights like that. I know its still early on and you might not be able to discuss much, but is anything planned? Lawsuit or otherwise? I know in the past some pro-2A groups have funded things like that.
It is interesting to me that none f these people even seem to consider, criminals NEVER let you know they are armed until they want to use their weapon. Criminals hide their weapons, they do not open carry.
There is an interesting comment from LE on a thread on the Oregin forum...that cop does unerstand the basic principle...It is the thread about Ceasefire's gun buy being crashed by citizen gun buyers.
From the linked New article: (Sessions is a LEO assisting ceasefire)
"Sessions dismissed the possibility that the sidewalk buyers would then sell to "undesirables. That's not the case. These people know what they're doing, They know the laws. They know they'd lose that right if they did sell to the undesirables."
Equally unlikely, said Sessions, who assisted the foundation with its guns buyback for nine years, is the notion that gang members would be among those turning in guns.
"They really would like to see the gangs turn in the guns," Sessions said. "And I tell them, 'Keep wishing that.' But it's not going to happen."
Gang members, first of all, want to hold onto their guns because "a gun means power. And two, they see us, the police, and they say 'We don't want to be caught with a gun.'"
