    He was carrying correctly in polite society. He had the element of surprise.

    My question is, did this young man have the firearm in a case? Was it unloaded in the car? Is that legal in Wis?:shock:


    I forget all those laws or for...?

    Don't confuse me with the facts, I have my emotions!

    I guess that's the difference between no crime and "stopping" a crime in progress. I prefer no crime.

    Yeah, "outside of the vehicle"? Our junior cop just published a lecture in the local paper on how to behave during a traffic stop that included such as, "stay in the car", "don't move around" and "turn on the dome light."

    The department has not yet responded to my request for a citation of their statutory authority for such demands. I noted that they will probably greet me curbside at the front of my locked and secured vehicle.

    A traffic stop, per se, is not RAS for a search beyond the person.

    When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
    Why do police carry guns?

    This MUST be a joke. You expect me to believe that criminals dont obey the law? GUFAW!




    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?

    And this is why they don't often use holsters. Ditch the gun and hopefully the cop doesn't find it. If they had an empty holster, the cops might search a little harder for the ditched gun.
