LEO: And that's your right, however we have a vested public interest
in maintaining the safety of the boardwalk and feel that no citizen will need their firearm in self-defense while they are visiting.
Me: Well, I appreciate your opinion ma'am. If you'd allow me, Iam already running late and I'm sure my family is worried about me so I'd like to be on my way.
LEO: You can leave, however I'd recommend never coming to the boardwalk again with your firearm. It is irresponsible and downright stupid
This is where she sort of struck a nerve. I had to bite my lip, and wanted to retort however the crowd surrounding my detention was growing and I did not want to seem hostile.
Me: Well, that's your opinion ma'am but frankly I don't appreciate you verbally degrading me like that.
