    Quote: What if we were armed and got stopped for speeding? One thing not to blurt out to a cop (or anyone else, for that matter) is: “I’ve got a gun.” Rather, he said, hand over the gun permit with the driver’s license and say, “Officer, how can I safely give you my gun?”

    <break> <break>

    Excuse me?? Give the PO your firearm? CCW lic/permit=yes; firearm=I wouldn't offer it.

    Texans--help me out here...bad reporting? Or do you actually offer your firearm to the PO?

    ...uhhhhhh NO

    In Texas if a peace officer or magistrate asks for your ID (traffic stop or anywhere else) we have to give DL/ID and CHL both
    no requirement nor recommendation for giving firearm or asking how to give them the weapon
    thats just bad reporting and ignorance

    Not a bad article.

    They did one (or the Washington Post did, I don't remember...maybe the same guy for all I know) about some dude from New York City learning how to handle a rifle and go hunting the first time.

    I think he shot a deer on his second hunt.

    Even if he's not hooked, like us, he would absolutely not demonize guns and gun people anymore.

    Good to see such stories.

    I believe in most places the peace officer is allowed to "secure" your weapon during the stop if s/he desires. Of course, they have to give it back when all is done. Personally I don't see why they would do so on a normal stop since it would just involve handling the gun more. Leave it where it is and let me do my paperwork, so I would think.

    The Boston one was not as good and they do make their digs throughout, but overall it's better than the norm and much better than nothing at all.
    Two such articles in leftist rags...wow end times must be nigh.

    Jim Pruett the instructor mentioned in the story is very
    well known in Houston & the surrounding area as being very
    pro on firearms in general & also ccw.
    If you ever pass through Houston during the early morning
    hours, Jim has a radio talk show [ FM 97.5 ] that deals with a
    lot of today's hot button issues & also segment from one of
    our local self defense experts. Tune in & learn how to stop
    being a sheeple.
