This is the kind of thing you run into when LEO's are hired from out of state. Ican tell you the the Academy here in Wyoming does NOT teach students (LEO's in training) that just havingfirearms somehow make a person a criminal. What sometimes is happening though, is too much T.V. for some of these guys. Of course we all knowhow Hollywood always gets it right.lol.You are right on target with , be polite and EDUCATE these people to our ways and customs. If they then choose to be overbearing, a conversation with their boss amy be in order and from there you may need to publicize the problem and address it through litigation. A calm head is invaluable if you deal with a badge heavy individual.
