    My recent stop

    I was recently stopped*, and as the officer approached, I had the window full down and both hands squarely in the 10 and 2 o'clock positions on the steering wheel, with my driver's license sitting between them on the dash.**

    Here's how that conversation went:

    LEO: "Do you know why I stopped you?"

    Me: "Honestly, Sir, I do not."

    LEO (spotting my holstered firearm): "Is that a gun?

    Me: "Yes Sir, it is."

    LEO: "Are you aware of the legal ramifications of carrying a firearm?"

    Me: "One hundred percent, Sir."

    LEO (grinning): "Well, ok then. Carry on!"

    Me: "Thank you very much, Officer - I will!"

    *Not saying any of who/what/where/why/how/when, primarily because I honestly don't know about the why.

    **For the kiddies out there, this is the only way you're ever going to communicate to them that you respect their position of authority. It goes a long, long way towards eliminating any escalation of conflict.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. OO-RAH!!! Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and other founding documents.

    As for President Trump, he's getting the job done.
