This group of 4 women went into a Walmart in Missouri to grab a quick bite to eat. Some of them were open carrying their guns and apparently that was just too horrifying for some Walmart shoppers who called police.
This first video shows the initial officer asking the group to show identification and asking for papers. The women ask if they are being detained and if they did anything wrong or illegal and the officer does not give a straight answer but says he is trying to figure out if they were doing something illegal.
It is perfectly legal to open carry in the state of Missouri, but it only takes one idiot to call the police and say you are disturbing the peace for the cops to come out.
When one of their friends arrives on scene, he too is asked by the officer to produce a form of identification.
“Am I being suspected of something?” the man asks.
“I don’t know,” the officer replies, adding he is simply there responding to a call. ”I’m wanting to see some identification. Do you have your identification I can see?”
“I do,” the man says.
“I’d like to see it then,” the officer firmly says.
While searching for his drivers license, the man continues to press the officer as to why he is being asked to show his identification.
“Is there… did I break a law or anything?” the man asks. “Has a law been broken sir?
Again, the officer replies that he is unsure.
“I don’t know yet,” the cop says. “That’s what I am trying to determine here.”
After being forced to stand in a corner of the Walmart parking lot for several minutes, it appears Marshfield Police Chief Doug Fannan eventually arrives on the scene.
The second officer says he is pro gun and eventually lets the group go.
