Another newbie legal question
Ok, I generally carry a small .380 IWB, but very very often carry my 9mm Glock or .40 S&W Glock in a leather waistpack/fannypack, and you can't tell there is a gun inside, unless it's opened.
I know of one wrongful detention by a Wal-Mart years ago, resulting in a lawsuit against WalMart, where a man was detained when they thought he was shoplifting, but he wasn't.
My question is sort of constituional search and seizure/false imprisonment versus "concealed"
Really, I just want to know how to handle a situation, should it ever occur:
Suppose I'm leaving a WalMart and the lady by the exit door asked to see inside my fanny pack.
Would I open it for her there, and be in violation for not being concealed
Ask her to call the manager where we could go in his office and ask what the probable cause of the search is, and then ?
Show the Manager, or store security, my license and hand him my fanny pack containing my weapon
Explain or show the manager my license, but hang onto it, and have the manager call for police if he wants to go further with the matter, and wait for police and show them my license before handing them the fanny pack containing my weapon.
I could deal with the civil matter of illegal search or wrongfully detaining me later, I just want to know what's best while at the store, (so I'm not in violation of anything) if that ever occurred.
