On May 30th, 2006 OFCC Member Daniel Sayers, a concealed handgun license holder, was carrying openly and going about his business in Oregon, Ohio at a Sunoco gas station. He went into the gas station to pay for his gas, returned to clean his windshield and checked his oil before proceeding on his way to work.
Another patron of the establishment apparently called 911 to report a "man with guns on his hip" entering the store.
Oregon police responded, detained, and eventually arrested Sayers. He was charged with one concealed carry related charge (failure to notify the police he had a license and was carrying), and a local Oregon ordinance that completely prohibits possession of a firearm in public.
Ohioans For Concealed Carry became involved in this case, and created the Dan Sayers Legal Defense Fund, upon learning the facts of the case. This page will serve as a repository of stories we've written and supporting evidence that we've acquired, such as video, legal briefs, etc.
OFCC used to have our own copy of the dashcam video that was provided through Mr. Sayers' attorney with permission. That link has been disabled.
You may see the dashcam video posted on YouTube HERE.
