I was discussing ccw stuff with an 'acquaintance' and he said he was buying a set of handcuffs. I asked if he was gonna carry them. He replied "sure if i have to stop someone, if i can prone them out I'm gonna cuff'emup" All I could think is "uh huh...right"
My thought is, they probably are not gonna lay down for me. I wouldn't if i was a BG figuring a regular armed citizen is not gonna shoot me in the back, I'd run away. Ok assuming they do prone out for ya. Are ya opening yourself up to crap like "illegal" imprisonment, kidnapping, etc. charges for such an activity?
Next, he said "plus if anybody Sees my cuffs on my belt (and my gun) they will think I'm a cop and not call the cops on me for an accidental display of my weapon.
Mall-ninja and cop-wannabe come to mind but the legal aspects are what I wonder about.
What do you all think?

Lets keep it that way.

He needs to get his butt to a "self defense and the law" class and ditch the cuffs.
or become a cop...
Suggest the young man take some courses in Police Science at a local City College, who knows, the fellow may turn out to be a great cop.
too much time spent watching law&order,the closer, etc.

I've been a cop for 19 years altogether, and I can't think of a single instance where myself or another officer have taken into custody someone who needed to be proned out at gunpoint WITHOUT waiting for backup to arrive.
That's just suicidal. You can't simultaneously hold them at gunpoint AND handcuff them. If you keep the gun in hand, you can't apply the cuffs, and you risk the gun being taken from you. If you holster, you lose the threat which provided the control in the first place.
Tell your friend to leave the cuffing to the police. THEY will be his "backup".
Operating a cell phone is a one-handed operation. Operating a pair of handcuffs is not.
Dude has no clue what he's talking about, or thinking of.
Never mind that alone attempting to cuff _and_ cover a perp single handedly is very much a poor and highly risky idea.
If some civilian looking citizen tried to cuff me even if he/she were armed you can bet sure as the sun sets in the west I would not go with it easily nor quietly. And I'm not even a criminal in mindset.
Why would muchless should a criminal comply to a citizens handling and efforts to cuff them?
Dude is not thinking things through using reason or street sense muchless understanding of law.

I wouldn't do that on a bet...just asking for trouble.
Unless, you show him your CCW Badge, then the BG will lay down and put the cuffs on all by himself...

I think some people confuse a ccl for a badge...
No, I think this is actually dumber than a badge. Distance yourself from this moron post haste.
No cuffs. Call for more help.

Not such a great idea.

The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is about keeping the government in check. This requires that the citizenry is well armed and at all times has immediate access to arms.
