    if the weapon was covered by the tamk top he was concealed, PRINTING is NOT illegal here in FLA.

    Jail time for stupid is pretty typical for breaking the law for anything. I've been carrying for over six years, and I know the definition of "concealed". This guy does not.
    there is no law against printing, if the weapon was concealed this is a bad arrest.

    Even in states that allow open carry you have to be very careful. Open carry in Wisconsin is legal if the gun is COMPLETELY uncovered. This means if you have a IWB holster you can get in trouble if any part of it can be seen.

    Not too bright to be ignorant of stupid laws.

    Yes, what he did was a violation of the law. But that doesn't mean the law isn't dumb. Listen to the remarks of LEO in the next video. The argument is akin to "We will react to the 'threat' of open carry. We will be happily ignorant to the 'threat' of concealed carry. So, for public safety, we would rather not know who is armed."

    But it's a free country, and people are free to elect officials that pass dumb laws.

    The above should in no way be construed as an endorsement of forehead carry of firearms. Please use a holster and carry responsibly.

    Say what? With a permit? With a permit you can carry concealed, half concealed, one eight concealed, or open in Wisconsin. Without a permit open carry only.

    Sag your pants enough and it has the feel of a thigh holster, which we all know is more tacticool.

    I watched the video...The guy was walking down the sidewalk with his holstered weapon exposed on his side. IF he was making an attempt to conceal, it was a poor try and he found out quickly that "concealed means concealed"...As for the officers being "over zealous" in his apprehension, come on guys, they did nothing wrong in their procedure. The put him on his knees, hands behind his back, put him face down on the sidewalk, assumed a "proper" cuffing position, cuffed him, then assisted in rolling him over to his side and literally picked him up (gently), and took him to the transport vehicle. What was so over zealous in their procedures???...JMO

    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    So I guess my normal EDC carry here in Tennessee of a double Bruscadero rig with twin stag handled long barreled Super Blackhawks wouldn't be welcomed in Florida, huh? I'll have to tell that guy on the phone that I don't want that ocean front condo then!

    might want to try Myrtle Beach, SC. for vacation.

    the sherriff there openly advocates people legally carrying ... suggested every woman enroll in carry permit class.

    and they don't have the musky, locker room smelling swamps. :) nor an abundance of retired folk who lived nawth of the mason dixon line.
