OpenCarry TarrantCo: After about a half hour of handing out information (Open Carry information cards and pocket Constitutions) to people who requested it, parked at red lights and curious as to what we were doing, Sgt.

This is a city ordinance that has been, in other instances, over turned by Supreme Court rulings.
Back in Nov. 2013 Sgt. Pina illegally detained two men with OpenCarry TarrantCo because they refused to disarm. Why was Pina harassing the law abiding men? Besides being the dick that he is, he claims a “concerned citizen” called.
Have you ever seen someone handcuffed with their firearm still on them? If not…here’s a first.
