Tonight while at a car show I encountered a young woman about 18 or 19 openly carrying a handgun. This in and of itself is fine, until you factor in that the shopping center this car show occurs in is on an Indian reservation. Most of us know that Indian reservations are not gun friendly, and they certainly don’t care about the laws of the state their land is in (Arizona, in this case). I mentioned to her that if Salt River PD saw the gun she would be in a heap of trouble. She immediately became belligerent stating, “Open carry at 18.” I told her that the laws on the reservation are not the same as they are off the reservation. She rolled her eyes at me and went on her way. How do you handle blatant ignorance to firearm laws?
