    No CCW Badges Please!

    Here is a prime reason these are a bad idea. I know there are many details and no doubt facts missing from this article and caper that took place in our neighborhood yesterday. But, in my opinion, the badge is what cooked this young mans goose and makes CCW holders appear to be wannabe cops.

    Some of them are, unfortunately. I am amazed at the folks who want to carry handcuffs.

    How else do you detain them until a LEO arrives?

    Wow, thats pretty sad. This wanna be cop just lost his privelage and made all of us look bad. It's amazing how people with a little bit of power on there side will abuse it. It is a privelage and a very responsible act to conceal carry. This guy makes me sick!!!

    I dont see the connection here. I dont think it makes CCW holders appear to be wannabe cops. I think THIS guy is a wannabe cop and that fact that he had a CCW that he used under false pretenses will get him a hefty fine and maybe jail time.

    It does not make CCW holders appear to be wannabe cops. That's a pretty broad statement there and one that is in error.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I would hope the very thought of being shot would be reason enough for a BG to stay put, however, the permit doesn't give us arrest powers, therefore would forcing someone to remain at gunpoint be considered over stepping boundaries? Don't flame me for this, just was wondering. Do we have the right to detain, and if so , does this vary from state to state?

    It's not a privilege, privileges are things you're given by the grace of your almighty leaders, protecting oneself and loved ones is an in-alienable right!, it's a right. However, I do agree these butt-clowns do make us all look like a band of blood thirsty redneck right wing...........

    Exactly, although this is why I also wouldn’t volunteer my CCW permit to an officer unless required. I don’t want a LEO to associate my permit with any perceived authority.

    It would have been perfect if she flashed a REAL badge back at him and told him to pull over!

    Thumbs down

    There is enough want to be cops out there who do not have a CCW permit. The badge is a bad idea especially when you get someone who likes to flash it around. or show off. There is bound to be a nut case slip through once in a while. Even the police get a bad one once in a while. Thank God that the woman did not pull over. With the inventory this guy is carrying he has to be a little off.

    CCW badges are a road to problems. No valid reason to display or flash. What's up with that?

    I believe your average LEO will not be impressed with the CCW badge and will react negatively 9X out of 10. Bad idea.
