The Open Carry movement—which lobbies for citizens’ right to carry licensed firearms in plain view—may have a champion in Duncan Dohmen. The 68-year-old Washingtonian was arrested last June for openly carrying a Smith & Wesson 1911 into a local McDonald’s. Speaking to the tricityherald.com, the [former] pistol-packer proclaimed “Rights not exercised are rights lost.” Then again, Dohmen’s case doesn’t exactly position the proactive Open Carry advocate atop the model high ground. To wit: “According to police reports, the McDonald’s manager said that when she asked Dohmen to leave because of his gun, he tapped the holstered pistol and told her, ‘Bring it bitch.’ Dohmen denies that. He says he told her it wasn’t illegal and offered her a brochure about gun rights. He was eventually charged in Benton County District Court with a gross misdemeanor for the unlawful carrying or displaying of a firearm ‘in a manner, under circumstances, and at a time and place that either manifests an intent to intimidate another or that warrants alarm for the safety of other persons.'” Dohmen was scheduled to go on trial Monday; he agreed to a six-month continuance. If he keeps his nose clean, including traffic infractions (of all things), the charge may be dropped.
