GCO Member Files Briefs in Illegal Arrest Case

    “What is clear from this case is that several citizens called 911 when Plaintiff
    entered Scott’s store while wearing a pistol, which he was perfectly entitled to do.”

    In reality, it underscores the gross overreaction of Brown and his department. “Man with a
    gun” is no different from “man with a wallet.”

    “There Was No Arguable Probable Cause for Carrying a Concealed
    Weapon”

    Regardless of Woodwards lack of sensitivity to others unfounded fears of someone carrying a firearm, he should not have been arrested for ANYTHING.
