You'd think that "Handgun Carry Permit" means...

...that you have permission to carry a handgun, no?

Maybe not so much.

Apparently the new fashion among crooks is to go grocery shopping with their girlfriends and make sure that someone gets a glimpse of their kilobuck-plus custom gun in its expensive leather holster (crooks all use holsters, right?) If you see one of these people strolling brazenly through your grocery store parking lot, take them down fast and hard from behind. This is called the "New Hampshire Takedown", and it has been proven to work.

I'm not usually a big fan of litigation, but this sort of thing calls out for it. If nothing else, this sort of behavior needs to be nipped in the bud early, before it gets to be common practice.

Unfortunately...every department has its Farvas.

I dont know what that officer saw that made him react like that. Whatever it was...it would have to have been pretty freaking huge to slam a guy into a wall over it. We covered carry permits in academy. I passed mine around so everyone knew what one looks like.

No matter what tho, that officer's comments to ColtCCO about how he would 'find some probable cause so youll spend the night in jail' was WRONG. That is the epitomy of being an asshole cop.

I only hope that he wasnt KPD.

Tam-
I understand your consternation about this episode, but it's not exactly news. This happened over 3 years ago; I hope folks in LE are a little smarter now as a result of this...
DT in NH

Read again: It happened three years ago to mvpel in NH; it happened last night to ColtCCO in TN.

This should not surprise anyone. I believe all Law enforcement is tainted like this. I am an ex police officer, and over the past decade I have seen incidents like this get worse and worse. He needs to sue and make a stink. Nothing will come out of it to his benefit. We, the citizens, have allowed Law Enforcement to become above the law in matters such as this.
