So let me get this straight. Its ok to walk down the street in America with a gun (concealed or not) and you don't have to identify yourself in any way?

2nd Amendment or not...thats pretty f*cked up

Unless he was being uncooperative simply for the sake of the cop's response for the video... Jeremy kind of seems like a dick.

A dick within-his-rights, but still kind of a dick.

Hm.. after reading the comments, I realized I was wrong... if it's an open carry, not a concealed carry, then that explains why he had no id on him. Sorry for that incorrect assumption.

I'm also not too keen on the "I don't have to give you my name". True, he doesn't, but walking around with a weapon and not having your concealed carry license on you is not usually a good idea.

Massive props to the police officer though for being top-notch and handling the situation well.

i don't like the "not required to give you my name" stuff. Fine if you don't have id, and if you give a fake name so be it, but for fark's sake, if they ask "what's your name?" just give them your f'ing name for christs sake. You've already given it to dozen's, perhaps thousands or even maybe millions of people via your social interactions online, but god forbid a lawful government agency has it or writes it down. (P.S. they already have everything they need on you; it's called a social security number, and it's called taxes. Point, match, US Gov't)

That sums up about every police interactions i've ever had. They just aren't the ones that get posted on youtube.

What's youtube worthy about normal situations...

One way to look at the right to bear arms is that it gives us the abillity for the public to establish a militia to secede from or reestablish a government if needed, because force would sadly be necessary. This is shown in the war of 1812 when a few states were going to secede, but did otherwise. More notably this is shown in the civil war. If all guns were issued and controlled by the government, where does that give the power of force, to the citizens or the government? I think the government. Finally I think of the trail of tears where Native Americans didn't have the rights to guns. When they protested to Andrew Jackson about land rights and such, Jackson replied basically you and what army. Guns I think are for protection of our rights by having the abillity to use force, not for self protection or hunting, those are perks.

As far as i know the right to bear arms act is for protection, so say if a "protection force" were to go corrupt and abuse their power the town will be able to revolt... I'm sure that's not a good example but it's like a Checks and Balances system.

Well that's the risk you take when you let people carry around in public devices specifically designed for killing other human beings. Jeremy could easily have had that encounter with the polite and professional Officer Lyons and THEN gone on to shoot up a daycare centre.


Fair enough...which is why I feel that the Americans' right to bear arms is utterly ridiculous. That amendment was written at a time when there was a threat of invasion from Britain, and the US didn't have a standing army. Now it just causes more harm than good.

As for providing identification, I believe it's the same in the US (as they still follow a slightly modified version of British Common Law), but in Canada at least, it is required of you to provide the police with your full name and date of birth upon request. By refusing to do so, the police do have the right to detain you until you are able to prove your identity.

Honestly, this is how I've usually seen cops. This just doesn't hit the headlines enough.

America confuses me. Also, the officer was clearly on his side why was the guy such a jerk about identification and the like? It was pretty obvious that the officer was trying to be chummy...what was with the frosty reception?

Now, if the call came in, and the cops ignored the call, and "Jeremy" went off to shoot up a day care centre, I'm sure you'd be screaming, "MY GOD! WHY DIDN'T THE COPS DO ANYTHING?!"

It's amazing how many Americans are calling "Jeremy" a dick simply for exercising his rights, as if he should capitulate immediately simply because a policeman told him to - and yet are in constant fear of a communist regime sneaking in (via socialism), where you capitulate immediately simply because a policeman tells you to.

No, the norm should be that cops don't go around harassing law-abiding citizens.


Officer Lyons, in my opinion, did have a valid reason to stop and question "Jeremy". There was a call placed about a man carrying a gun, so, he went to investigate the situation. As Officer Lyons indicated, he didn't know "Jeremy's" motives, and there are a lot of unstable people out especially during the holidays. For public safety, it'd be a good idea to stop and investigate what "Jeremy's" intentions were, and if he was a potential threat to the public safety.

Now, if the call came in, and the cops ignored the call, and "Jeremy" went off to shoot up a day care centre, I'm sure you'd be screaming, "MY GOD! WHY DIDN'T THE COPS DO ANYTHING?!"

Officer Lyons made my week. Quickly secured the scene in a calm respectful manor. He called for back up before he even got out of his car. Officer Lyons is an Ace.

He was stern and respectful, a damn good cop. Jeremy on the other hand is resisting for the sake of resisting, and thus is a massive bag of douche.

Inter237 The reason you have never had any problems is because you are closely related to one. That cop was unlike any cop I've ever seen, met, or watched in a video before. Every cop in the country should swallow their pride and watch this video.
