    Legally armed identification system

    This is a page I came across when looking into a N/R Tennessee permit. What are your thoughts on it? My apologies if this has already been covered.

    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    Every BG out there will have one of these, or a knock off that looks like one of these. My weapon will be on the ground when Law Enforcement Arrives, at least until they figure out who I am.

    In response to the replies to this thread - what do you think are the negative aspects to this form of identification? How do you imagine it would be seen by a responding LEO? I understand the concept behind the idea and on the surface is a quick way to get the attention of the officers; after all, you are presenting your valid state permit. Once they have you pegged as a good guy, they can start gathering witnesses, securing the scene, assisting the injured, etc, knowing that you're going to stay put.

    It doesn't matter what you have (badge, permit, flashlight, or hall pass)...in the event of a shooting...you're getting cuffed until it gets sorted out. They will see your permit when they get your ID...you're going to stay put in the back of a car or sitting on a curb.

    Any other ID other than a permit = wannabe

    As far as I know, the very best course of action whether your gun is in your hand, on the deck, or in your holster when the police arrive is to do exactly as they say!

    I am going to do my best to reholster and have my gun put away when they arrive... But if they order me on the deck, I'm getting on the deck. If they order me to freeze, I'm going to freeze.

    The best way to avoid getting shot, is to do what they command you to do.

    I have valid ID in my wallet... We'll get to that soon enough. They'll have my DL, my CCW permit, my social security card and everything else they want in due time.

    In the mean time, I'm doing exactly what they want me to do. I don't see a need to have a special "good guy" ID to accomplish that.

    Trust me, if you call the police to report that you just shot someone, you're going to have their full and undivided attention. Once they do arrive, you will be disarmed and most likely cuffed and placed in the back of their squad car. The police aren't going to assume you are the good guy just because you have a permit.

    It's nice that they provide you with a card to hand to the police if you're involved in a SD shooting.

    It's also great that they misspelled words on that card. Really lends an air of competence.

    I think the idea is pretty dumb overall. And poorly executed at that.
