Legality of this scenario
I was watching COPS last night, (yeah, I know. But I really don't have any other vices) and it was featuring New Orleans finest. It was Mardi Gras and they were patrolling Bourbon street.
At one point as the cops were moving through the crowd, a uniformed patrolman bumps a man, and as he's kind of pushing him gently with his hand, he feels a gun on his hip. So they arrest him for CC.
Now this isn't about whether CC is allowed in New Orleans, or whether or not this guy had a license. But if it was illegal, and he didn't have a license, would that form of discovery be legal? It seems borderline illegal search...
Anyway, just curious if anyone has any insight.
