I can't believe you actually took the time to argue with the moron. I think that if anything, he should have put the gun into the glove box, and not say anything at all to the dispatcher (he didn't have to volunteer that info).
I know in Florida you don't run into it as often (Florida isn't really the south, culturally speaking). But in Georgia and Tennessee, everybody here is packing heat. I can't count the times I have heard somebody say that they own over 30 firearms. And when I tell them I don't own a gun, they look at me like a I have a 2 foot long erect pen*s sticking out of my forehead.
This guy shouldn't blame the sherrifs for being so cautious. Think about it. . . Every time they approach a car for speeding, they are taking the risk that some drug dealer will shoot them in the face. They put their lives on the line every day, and the day you get sloppy is the day you get shot.
Why I don't own a gun: On this day, 11th of February, 1988 two 15 year old boys robbed the residence of a Pinellas county deputy and took 2 x .38 cal. revolvers and brought them to my high school (Pinellas Park High). I'll never forget that it was a Thursday and it was about 12:45 in the afternoon when 2 assistant principals (Mr. Richard Allan, Mrs. Blackwell, and an intern teacher) jumped one of the boys in a crowded lunchroom of 1,200 kids in an attempt to disarm one of the boys. We saw the fight happening when the other boy (Jason Harless) took his pistol out, grabbed Mr. Allen by the hair, put the muzzle to his temple, and sent a bullet through Mr. Allen's skull. He then shot and wounded the other assistant principal and the intern teacher. My sister was close enough to have blood, skull, and brains splattered on her face and shirt. Mr. Allen was on full life support for a week before they pulled the plug in front of his wife and children. Jason Harless (the shooter), is now running free while the man he killed is now 6 feet under.
That day, we all did a lot growing up seeing somebody we all knew having the life snuffed out of him. On each February 11th, I always think about all people out there who have their lives taken away while serving others such as teachers, law enforcement and the military. I will also think about my friends and soldiers who I have served with who have died serving this country. I'll get off my soap box.

He should have never told the dispatcher that he had a gun. It is a little hard to believe that the dispatcher had him following the vehicle like that. Probably should have just reported the vehicle then let the police handle it and go home.
I think he is just a bit nuts and a bit too proud of his conceal permit.
But... I too have a conceal carry permit and have seen the ignorance of "some" officers. I was stopped at a roadblock on my way back to my office one time by 2 troopers. One was an older guy and the other was a rookie. Rookie was handling the vehicles and in accordance with South Carolina law i handed over my conceal carry permit along with my drivers liscence. Rookie proceeded to to ask me where my gun was. I pointed to the conceal carry pack in the passenger seat and told him. He proceeded to go off on me telling me the gun was supposed to be locked up in the glove compartment blah blah.
My only response was " That would kind of defeat the purpose of it being a concealed weapons permit wouldn't it?" The older officer put his hand on the fuming rookies shoulder, pulled him back, smiled and said "have a nice day sir".
Another time i was in a traffic accident. Got rear ended by another vehicle. The officer asked for my registration so i told him it was in my glove box with my glock so he may want to get it out. He got all bent out of shape and the guy wanted to confiscate my Glock. Completely ignorant of the law.

I remember that. I think Mr. Allen taught at Buchanon junior High also. I may be incorrect on that one.
I took the time to look up that stuff cause I'm bored here at work and thought I would learn something.
Seems to me having a CWP is more a hassle than it's worth. Then you get this wacko who thinks he gonna play Barney Fife.

Read that thread too. He sounds like he's not all there. There are lots of people out there that are "dying" to be the hero. They get their permit so that they can someday "stop that crime" and be on TV or something. :rolleyes:
I personally don't plan to save the world with my guns, but I damn sure am going to fight when they try to take away my 2nd amendment rights....just my 2 cents.

As soon as I started reading it, I thought "Reminds me of Sgt Tackleberry out of the Police Academy movies".

I hope every single one of you on this forum knows that this guys personality, much like Gman's, is why they're trying to ban guns. This is how the story probably went.
After watching 5 episodes of COPS on my DVD player, I rolled up to Circle K for a Soldier magazine. I decided that this was a quick trip so I left the UZI and brought the 9mm.
After 10 minutes of flashing my gun in the store to anyone who would give me attention, and recognize that I have a permit and thought I was an undercover cop, I left the store, chocolate milk in hand, chin set high.
As I climbed into my car, I see some dude in the alley doing nothing wrong and minding my own business. Since the police scanner had been quiet the past 15 minutes, I staged a report to get some activity going. So I flashed my gun and harrassed these people by following them around everywhere they went in order to turn them in.
So what happens? I get harrassed, just like all the times I take my gun into Wal-Mart and flash it around conspicuously, as if I wanted everyone to think I was undercover.
Give me a break. Guys like him are the problem.
