I wonder why no one commented so far. Completely ridiculous in my opinion. As a concealed carry permit holder, the only time I've ever been pulled over after I got my permit, I handed both my driver's license and my cwp to the officer, who in turn asked where the weapon was. I told him it was in my briefcase. He said to keep my hands on the wheel and went back to his car. A few minutes later, he returned, had me sign a warning ticket (for speeding) and thanked me for cooperating and turned around and left. He was a state trooper.
Sorry to hear you had this trouble. Keep us posted on the result of the complaint/lawsuit if it goes that far.
