Philly Cops Question Open Carry Activist

An open-carry activist posted his encounter with two Philadelphia Police officers to YouTube, after they questioned him about his permit and told him he couldn’t legally carry hollow-point ammunition.

The officers stopped Joshua Rodriguez, 22, as he headed into a Manayunk barbershop on Nov. 8. One officer wrongly gells Rodriguez his ammunition is illegal. Hollow-point rounds are permitted in Pennsylvania.

He asks Rodriguez several questions and says, “Shut your mouth” and “Don’t call me ‘officer.'” The other cop repeatedly tells Rodriguez that his gun should be concealed and says, “I should’ve pulled my gun out on you, technically.”

Capt. Francis Healy, a police lawyer and special adviser to Commissioner Charles Ramsey, told the Philadelphia Daily News that the first officer might have misstated the law about the ammo, and the other might have been “a little overzealous” in the barbershop.

    More irony the officer ask him he had a license to carry, no such thing its called a permit, unless he has a FFL.

    The irony of this matter is in the fact that criminals don’t open carry, and they don’t get concealed carry permits. They would walk into this same barbershop, pull their hidden guns, which they bought illegally off the street, rob the owners and patrons, maybe rape and shoot one or several of them, then leave, almost never getting caught. I myself have been hassled by cops for openly carrying my pistol so I now carry concealed, without a permit. It’s my God-given right, and nobody hassles me.
