I know you are a staunch opponent of the governing bodies and I applaud your efforts to fight the system. But in this case the guy could have alleviated all of this by just showing his permit to the officers. I don't care if they had PC or RAS they have the power and can make your life miserable legal or not. Why would you intentionally temp fate when it is so easy to display your permit to them? I completely understand your stance on these types of subjects and do not disagree with your views but I went through hell and back to get my permit why wouldn't I want to proudly show it to an officer who requests I do so?
Losing your permit and significant amounts of time and money isn't a reasonable thing to have to undergo in my opinion just to a prove point really. I know you will disagree whole heartedly but this to me is just idiocy. And he may very well lose his privilege to carry for life in this state. Plus he is going to have all of this on his record for eternity. I want to stay below the radar as much as possible at all costs.
