‘Legal’ open carry could get you arrested—or worse

“’Because official ignorance endangers open carriers, as one in Willowick, Ohio, found out when, per Ohioans for Concealed Carry, he ’was ordered to his knees at gunpoint by several police officers.’ And the chilling account they relate includes no small amount of disrespect by the enforcers, including blasphemies directed at the detainee.’”
And then there was this bit of telling attitude for a right articulated in the Constitution all officers have sworn to uphold:
“’Also disturbing was a statement an East Palo Alto Police detective made on his Facebook page, laughing because most Californians can't get concealed carry permits, and must open carry (with unloaded guns) to remain 'legal.'
'Should've pulled the AR out and prone them all out!’ he wrote. ’And if one of them makes a furtive movement... two weeks off!!'" [more]

This is one LEO that fully embraces the "Only Ones" mentality.
