    "In Your Possession vs "On Your Person"

    A conversation today reminded me of something I picked up while taking my CCL class.
    The attorney teaching the legalities of CCW was going over the part of the Kansas law which states that your license must be "On your person" while you are carrying. To point out the difference between that and "In your possession" he told us about a personal experience.
    He was out pheasant hunting by himself and had just walked a long fence line when a state fish and game officer pulled up. They exchanged pleasantries then the warden asked to see his hunting license.
    The conversation then went something like this:

    "I need to see your hunting license".
    "It's in my truck down the road there, give me a lift and I'll show it to you."
    "The license must be in your possession."
    "It is in my possession, it' in my truck."
    "If it's in your truck then it's not in your possession."
    "The law says it must be in my possession, not on my person."
    "Nope, you have to have it on you to be in your possession."
    "What if you saw a pound of dope in my truck, even though I wasn't there, you would arrest me for possession wouldn't you?"
    "Yes sir".
    "So, then, if my license is in my truck it's in my possession."
    "It's not the same thing. If you 'Possess' it, you have to be able to show it to me."
    "Do you possess a house?"
    "Of course.
    "Then show it to me."

    The officer gave him a ride to his pickup, checked his license and went on his way.

    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Finney County.
    Another good one he told:
    When he's not teaching the class a lawyer from the City Attorney's office does it.
    On the subject of what to do if you're involved in a shooting, the City guy tells the class to cooperate fully with the police and answer all their questions.
    His advice as a defense attorney? (in his own words) "Shut the F**k up, call a lawyer."

    So as not to get in trouble. I guess I'll have not comment.
    Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.

    It's now the "Garden City Regional Airport". Even has a control tower manned by genuine government employees!
