Re: Court upholds police pointing gun at lawful carrier
This cop TOOK the man's gun.
"confiscated" if you want to call it that. Some might call it "theft" if it weren't for a cop doing it.
If you suspect somebody of carrying concealed (and they don't have a permit), that's against the law right?
As in, you arrest that guy, right?
But the cop ONLY TOOK the gun and left the man alone ...
(There are obviously some details that the story could have not given which would be pertinent here...)
To take the "driver's license" analogy, it would be like the cop getting a tow truck to take the car with him...
But not caring about the guy who was (supposedly) driving drunk...
This whole thing was fishy on multiple levels.
The courts "upholding" it is repugnant.
I fully hope for an appeal.
(Not at you...)
With a driver's license, YOU CAN CHECK the validity of it.
Call it in.
See if the number is valid.
They do that to check if the person being pulled over should be "asked" about anything else...
And based on that, really no excuse for a cop to take somebody's VALID license...
But thanks to the gun lobby insisting on anonymous guns, I'm betting there is no such network for gun owners / conceal permits.
Self-inflicted, to some degree, bringing up my amusement...
