Fortunately, we do not live in a Democracy, we live in a Representative Constitutional Republic which guarantees inalienable rights and protects against tyrannical usurpations-the cornerstone bulwark against such usurpations being the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
You will recall the definition of Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on the character of the evening meal.
The choice of the lamb, of course, would be to graze on the freely available praire grass,while the choice of the wolves is possibly a more compact and readily available form of protein based sustanance euphemistically referred to as tenderloin.
Such tyrannical Democratic government should not be tolerated among civilized people.
I eagerly await your YouTube video which will demonstrate the proper,elegant way to defend the right of the people to keep and bear arms
Certainly in VA and TX, direction from LE is leave the gun alone and show the permit.
Handling the firearm is expressly discouraged, for the reasons you cite.
Police chiefs will be pro or anti whatever the mayor, governor or other appointing authority is. They serve at their pleasure, and are usually gutless whores.
The attitudes amongst the cops that do the police work vary. As the police forces get younger(compared to me), less are inclined to support citizens packing due to the brainwashing they have been receiving from the public schools, TV, etc.
Most cops of my generation had no problems with honest citizens packing. We chewed butts on occasion(citizen grabbing handgun out of glovebox to get to registration, for example)but most of my peers had no problems.
I think a better analogy would be the example of "Preacher Mike" - an evangelical Christian minister who, every weekday, exercised his freedom of speech by standing on a soapbox in the University of Michigan Diag and preaching his heart out to the passing student body, and debating with any Marx-soaked pseudo-intellectual philosophy major who dared to engage him.
He harmed no one, irritated others, and saved a few, and the police and campus officials couldn't do squat to silence him even though I'm sure many wanted to.
In the state of Washington a state patrol sergeant and a trooper ended up arresting a guy who was audio recording them during a stop. It went to federal court, and they rightfully lost. I knew both of those officers, and liked them, but they were out to lunch.
When I worked, record away. Just don’t shove it in my face, interfere with my duties or invade my crime scene.
Recording works both ways...link the dash cams.
Works for me. Every patrol car on the planet should have a dashcam with every on-scene car pointed toward the incident for as many camera angles as possible.
