Volokh-gun behind you back disorderly conduct?

While it doesn't apply in MD, many here have had to deal with less than savory characters while involved in domestic issues.

thought provoking.

A little bit of a question in my mind when someone has the gun in their hand. If the gun was holstered there would be no question.
But a favorable 2A opinion from the ND Supremes.

And how different would it have been if she'd stuck it in her pocket or waistband?

Not only not pointed or brandished, but was held behind back to NOT overtly telegraph being armed.

In my opinion, the judges reached the correct conclusion. On her property... not threatening... don't see how the officer came to the conclusion that this was "disorderly conduct".

Someone walking toward you (who's unknown to you) with a gun in hand certainly ups the antenna than one in a holster. That's why many states require holsters for public carry.
Since she was on her property the whole time I can see why the ruling came down as it did.
