Now, according to the article he wasn’t arrested for openly carrying. He was arrested for illegal possession of a suppressor.
“But, wizard! Doesn’t Embody legally own some suppressors?”
Yes, yes he does. But if you read the article closely…
Due to his inability to prove that his weapon was legal and having a firearm silencer attached, Embody was placed into custody.
Tennessee code 39-17-1302 prohibits firearm silencers, devices used to muffle the report of a firearm.
…and you understand that the reporter probably doesn’t understand the intricacies of firearms laws, you’ll likely come to the same conclusion as me.
He was arrested for refusing to produce the tax stamp for his suppressor when asked. It is illegal to own a suppressor in Tennessee…unless you can show you’ve paid the federal tax.
The case will be dismissed when he decides to do that.
This is just another example of him intentionally being an asshole. This time he got the law wrong.
It is my opinion that his goal is to get open carry
