We'll be watching this one closely, as open carry threads tend to get snarky.

That said, that officer is just...wow. I expect a certain degree of professionalism from law enforcement, but Nork was amazing. I liked his knowledge of NFA law (even if "Class 3 tax stamp" is slightly incorrect), and his acknowledgement and support of the right to carry was exemplary.

Looks like the guy taping the video was looking for a confrontation, and Nork utterly swept the rug out from under him.

Now for the L&CR question: does this meet the requirements for a Terry stop, and was Nork's suspicion that the guy was carrying an NFA weapon reasonable?
