Walter Stanley was in the middle of telling an ABC7 News crew about his public effort to exercise his legal right to openly carry an unloaded gun, when Livermore police came calling.
"Put your hands on your head for me please," Officer Fuller shouted to Stanley.
With that, Stanley raised his hands to his head and faced a wall while Fuller and another officer examined the 9mm pistol he had holstered at his side. Down the block, a third Livermore officer with rifle drawn, served as backup while a fourth drove by in a cruiser.
"We had some citizens call in," one officer told Stanley before they returned his gun and sent him on his way.
