Thank you- and there Is my point. If the LEO felt there was reason to fear the offender, then taking the gun was not enough. If there was no reason to fear the offender, then there was no reason to fear the gun in the hands of a citizen.
I frequently carry a BUG. What if someone who does so hands over one, gets the officer to become complacent as he does his NCIC check, and there's another gun yet unsecured?
I would rather the police stick to the law. If that means arresting you to process your gun, then I'd rather be arrested and proceed with a title 18 lawsuit if the officer did not have RAS. I do not want to just give up my gun because it's easier, but I can't make that choice for other people or really tell them it's wrong.
