I had the misfortune to be involved in an accident on I 40 east at Dickson, Tn yesterday. Wife taken to hospital, car totaled. I had two handguns with me. I gave the Trooper both my dl and ccl at the same time. He asked where the wepons were, assured be that that was not a problem and treated me with respect and kindness. We read many posts where the reaction from some officer's is not like mine. The TN. Hwy Patrol is a first rate group of professionals. Now on to the Smoky's!

I had a friend with a similar situation... THP "seized" his firearms because both him and his wife had to be EVAC'd out to Vanderbilt, and he had a family representative go and pick them up from the local THP precinct.
I hate that THP has such a bad rep... sure there are bad apples in THP, just like every group out there... but they do their jobs, and 90% of them do their jobs very well.

NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.

Sorry about the car and hospital visit, I hope all goes very well.
It's nice to hear about 'rational' cop encounters.
