Positive encounter with OSP

Postby Hank629 » Thu Jul 01, 2021 5:08 pm

I recently had a minor fender bender outside of Zanesville. OSP was called and upon arrival I informed the trooper that I had a CHL and that I was armed. When I asked how should I proceed, his response was "I'll make a deal with you. If you don't pull yours, I wont pull mine." We both had a chuckle, completed the accident report and everyone went along their happy way. Just though I would share a positive interaction.

On the few occasions I've had to notify, I usually use something like, "I'm REQUIRED to notify you that I have a concealed carry license, and I am armed." I've never had someone respond with much more than a shrug and a "that's fine". Sort of reduces the possible inference of paranoia that might be conveyed by "How do you want me to proceed?".

But - whatever works.

OSP has always been very professional and cool with concealed carry. My three times in the last two years have been a non event. The way it should be.

Restraint when needed and action when required.

Before a government can become a full-blown tyranny, the government must first disarm its citizens. The Founders of this nation, from their own experience, knew that when government goes bad, liberty evaporates and people die ... unless the people are armed. JPFO

I assume by "always" you meant "for some years now". Believe me, OSHP vigorously opposed concealed carry and weren't overjoyed when it became law.

I'm not taking a swipe at you here, sorry if it comes off that way.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!
