I think LEOs should be able to carry anywhere because they are the authority that uphold the law. Just like I feel that citizens should be able to carry anywhere because we are the immediate authority of our own well being. a LEO wouldn't want to be caught in a situation without his gun wishing he had it, just as a citizen wouldn't. Some people can argue well LEOs have had training. so have we as citizens. granted LEOS have had much more extensive training than we have, but we are both recognized by the state as capable and competent firearm carriers and I don't think LEOs or civilians should have to disarm. If the state trusts us with a gun, I feel that 30.06 30.07 companies should have to trust us too. Yeah, I know that business owners have the right to not allow guns on their property. UNLESS you're a LEO. That's where the whole "special treatment" issue crops up for me. we are both recognized by the state as being responsible gun owners so why can't I carry places that only LEOs can? We've both gone thru the process of taking the tests and traning to be able to carry a handgun as per the state requirements. I don't feel as tho LEOs should get special treatment when it comes to carrying a gun. I feel at this point im kinda repeating myself, its 1AM cut me some slack haha. I think i'll end this rant now.
I would most likely allow any of the local LEO forces into my home, Including state DPS or Rangers. I wouldn't let any Feds into my home or speak a word to them other than to claim 5th amendment rights. Including the FBI, Marshals Secret Service BATFE, ICE, BP or IRS. They are the enemy and are out to destroy anyone in their path. But I suppose this has nothing to do with open carrying because I wouldn't want them my property armed or unarmed, on or off duty.

Re: Manager at Texas Whataburger denies service to detective because of his gun

The cop didn't have to disarm all he had to do was cover it up. Just like us of the lower classes are required to do. What bothers me is that people for some reason this guy is entitled more than the rest of us.

Whataburger has a policy of no open carry, but concealed is fine. Just like HEB.
:iagree: It's just a dress code policy. Whataburger isn't anti gun. Concealed carry is fine. The guy should have complied with the dress code and covered up. Show some respect for private property rights and enjoy your meal. Instead he makes the news in a major metropolitan area because he won't follow the rules. This in-your-face activism doesn't win support and his extremist behavior sets their cause back and wastes political capital. On the heels of Art Acevedo and Tony Leal openly attacking Second Amendment rights for ordinary Americans, his antics just make things worse for his profession.
I tend to agree, allowing out of uniformed LEO special rights denied to the common folk reeks of special class treatment. We LTC holders have a lower crimerate than LEO. If we are expected to coverup why can't they. The whole concept of making us coverup is belittling, but cops shouldn't be treated differently than the rest of us. Maybe the simplest solution would be for What a Burger to respect everyones rights.

I lived in Friendswood for 20 some odd years. It very well could've been an issue with the cop that the manager had. I respect all police officers, but many Friendswood cops have been looked at questioningly by many residents, including clean cut law abiding folk, not just criminals mad because they got caught lol.


Or could just be an idiot store manager.
I've lived in Friendswood for 38 years and I've never once heard any negative comments about Friendswood PD.

Chas.
I got to agree with Charles on this one, FPD has a pretty good reputation and probably better than some of the Agencies surrounding them. I could go on and on about one of the elected Galveston County Constables, but that's pretty much ancient history. Northern Galveston County has some excellent LEO agencies. particularly considering the ultra-fast growth and the strain on that puts on the area.

Does anyone remember the "Kemah Clown" days? Today they are a pretty respectable PD and have cleaned up their act.

Re: Manager at Texas Whataburger denies service to detective because of his gun

If they would toss me or any other citizen out for wearing a gun, why shouldn't they kick out gun-toting cops without a uniform? Cop can either cover it or leave it in the car, just like the rest of us. Seems like he is just looking for special treatment. We've known how so many of them get turned off about the "Do you know who I am?" defense. This time the shoe is on the other foot.
