"guns are like a Parachute, if you don't have one when you need it, you will not need one again"
i you call a CHP a CCW then you are really stupid. period.
I never thought I'd say this but I kind of think WalkingWolf has the right idea here.

i wasn't saying it was a big deal, i was just saying, i've been pulled over before, and never had a gun drawn. i don't think he did it aggressively, i just thought it was odd to pull it out after the driver TOLD him he had a gun. not the cop SEEING one without prior notice. especially since the driver followed the law and notified upon contact.
I've had cops do this with traffic stops ... even pointing at me.
I read the story last week then watched the video this morning. It does appear that Zimmerman likely reached over and opened the glove box in an attempt to show the officer which caused him to draw his firearm. I always inform the LEO right away that i am CCW licensed and either A. have my firearm in my ******* holster on my right/left side (i cross draw carry a lot) or B. I am licensed but am not carrying today. I would never reach for my firearm to show him. Poor Z, trying to do the right thing.
Apparently the officer is in hot water for taking a picture of something (you can hear it in the video but then the LEO mentions a flat tire or something?), the pic was probably Z's license to show his friends. At any rate the officer clearly supported Z otherwise he would've wrote him a ticket.
Had a cop in Tennessee do this to me several years ago. He didn't like the fact that I'd rolled down my window and placed both hands on the window ledge.
