Carry Permit Holder Accosted by Police for Carrying in Public

ColtCCO, has a permit to carry in Tennessee. Tennessee law does not specify that a carried weapon must be concealed, but most permit holders are advised to conceal it out of courtesy, as well as tactical surprise sake. Apparently Tennessee does not train their LEO's in the subtle nuances of the carry laws. ColtCCO was accosted and assaulted by a officer that not only did not know the law, but threatened to make up a violation if he was told what the law really was.

Let us hope the IAD complaint generates an attitude adjustment.

"The American dream used to mean individual success, now it’s just comfort we all want. Why mess with the status quo? Why think, why struggle, why make a decision? Surrender, take the drug, slip away, work, eat, sleep, do it again, and never question the man."

Ayn Rand was right.

Perhaps since he was being assualted, he should have used his weapon!

Now that is just stupid. The law requires you to comply with the officer at all times, failing to do so not only can cost you your permit, it can cost you your life and/or freedom. It does not matter how much of an asshole the cop is being you do what the nice policeman says and you live to file a lawsuit another day.
