    Had lunch with 3 LEO's and both my wife and I got detained

    Took our dog to the vet - again - for her ACL/LCL/ALCU/LSD/whatever surgery for the umteenth time. Said they had to do some work on her (drain the surgery site), could we go run some errands and come back in an hour. Happened before, prolly happen again, no big surprise there. So we decided to go to lunch.

    The lunch place we went to is a cool little hole in the wall, about a mile or so SW of downtown Pulaski, TN. Real nice place, we've been there before. The owner is both hot, very nice and very hot. (Don't mention the hot part to my wife, ok?). Walk in, place is full (pretty small place), and we take a seat at the counter, the only two seats left.

    Get settled in, get our drink order in and I take a casual look around. Oh, that's interesting: two of three guys against the back wall table have sidearms, can't see the third guys right side due to the way he's sitting, but his demeanor and clothing and the little badge thingie embroidered on his casual shirt pretty much make clear he's one too. Of course, my well maintained and shiny brand new (read: dirty as heck, been in the field bushhogging and god knows what else) S&W 329PD is right there hanging out on my right side for the all the world to see, including the three local (I think) gendarmes.

    Got our lunch order, ate our lunch and then just after they got up to pay the cashier, we were done and did the same thing.

    My wife was the first to be detained. As she was attempting to open the door with a drink in one hand and a to-go box in the other, one of the LEO's went forward and helped her with the door. I saw this as I was just leaving the tip on the table. As he got back into the line just before me, I thanked him and told him that I appreciated it. He said no problem.

    Then I was detained.

    My attention has been unreasonably seized!
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Son of a.... cliffhangers in a OC thread??? This cannot stand!

    Are you saying a cliff-hanger must fall?

    If you were detained and just asked to produce your HCP that is completely acceptable, and somewhat expected, the way current TN law is written.

    Not that I personally agree with it.

    Detained....by the cashier; she had his "paperwork" and would not let him go until he paid.
    Detained....wife was outside, and the "hot" owner detained his attention.

    Oh crap, I totally forgot about this! Teach me to post something just before my wife calls me to dinner!!!

    Someone above had it right: I was detained waiting in line behind the three cops while they paid for their food. And yea, it probably would have gone a lot faster (or seemed to) if the hot owner was still there, but she left a couple minutes before. The cops sure enjoyed looking at her though, I noticed.

    Anyway, I thought it would make for a funny thread, too bad I screwed it up.......

    Sorry 'bout that!

    Let us know when the folks in Physical Therapy say you can use a computer again.

    stay safe.

    More like you would see a headline like this: "Man killed by wife, shot multiple times, ruled a justifiable homicide!"

    Having said that, I have noticed that none of my fellow TN (or north AL) members have asked where this hole in the wall is located...... Just sayin'.

    You remind of that guy that was in this documentary on space a year or so ago: Nothing went over his head, his reflexes were so fast, he would catch it!!!

    But is he correct? Is mere knowledge of a firearm in Tennessee is prima facie evidence of a crime?

    39-17-1307. Unlawful carrying or possession of a weapon.
    (a) (1) A person commits an offense who carries with the intent to go armed a firearm, a knife with a blade length exceeding four inches (4²), or a club.

    39-17-1308. Defenses to unlawful possession or carrying of a weapon.
    (a) It is a defense to the application of § 39-17-1307 if the possession or carrying was:
    (2) By a person authorized to possess or carry a firearm pursuant to § 39-17-1315* or § 39-17-1351;

    *39-17-1315 - Written directive and permit to carry handguns (law enforcement exception) and 39-17-1351 - Handgun carry permits.

    Sure are a lot of people trying to turn a humor thread into something serious!

    Having said that: I have a 8 month old female puppy that needs to be fixed. Time to go back to the vet (and lunch at the hole in the wall with the hot owner!).

    Wonder if it is the same thing that some have suggested be accomplished in your case?
