Yes- you should have recorders and cameras rolling when police arrive- but having someone shadow you with a camera rolling negates the 'non-event' that open carry usually is.
The camera person should be VERY discreet (no one should notice him) and only be filming if there is an incident and to document before starting what the purpose is of carrying and that the gun will be unloaded. I'm not saying make a E! reality show out of it, just have some video proving that the gun was unloaded in case the police report says otherwise or in case there are allegations of threats made.
