Gun myth? Way back in the 80s, interstate carry illegal.
I'm not quite old enough to know what the applicable laws WERE back in the early 80s. I was more concerned with teenager stuff back then. So...
I've had heard story a from a respected and credible Deputy that back in those days that some Virginia LEOs on a Blue Knights bike ride got pulled over by a North Carolina LEO in Murfreesboro circa early 80s. As the story goes, they all whipped out their "get out of trouble free" shields and IDed themselves. This apparently didn't impress the lone NC LEO; all their duty weapons were seized and they were charged and convicted of transporting firearms across state lines. Supposedly that haul provided a significant upgrade and supplement to the Murfreesboro NC PD for several years.
Anybody know or remember if this sounds like it could have been true?
