Packing Heat On The Mean Streets Of Germantown

Packing Heat On The Mean Streets Of Germantown

By Jeff Wagner. CREATED Mar 17, 2014

Saturday afternoon, a guy decided to take a stroll on the "mean streets" of Germantown with his shotgun.  Police responded after several residents called to express their concerns. When authorities arrived, the guy began recording the conversation.

He was ultimately allowed to go on his way.

It's pretty clear the man was trying to provoke a response from law enforcement.  After they declined to detain him, he got in his car and left.

This type of incident seems to be occurring more and more lately.  You know, openly brandishing a firearm not for personal protection but to make a point ... .

And that point would be?

During the 12 p.m. hour of Monday's radio show, we'll discuss whether there needs to be some limits on the open carrying of firearms?

Please feel free to share your thoughts in the Comments section - and be sure to check back later to hear a replay of the conversation.
