    If you don't give him ammunition, he has nothing to fight with.

    You do not fight with officers of the law, even though they think they are, they are not the last word on anything.

    Exactly.

    I once got pulled by a young trooper. He told me I was in violation of the law, because I was carrying my gun on my person instead of in my glove box, despite having a carry permit. I politely explained that he was wrong, and cited the letter of the law. He insisted he was right.

    I didn't argue with him any further. There is no point in arguing with a cop on the side of the road. I politely allowed him to assert what he thought was correct, and went on my way.

    When I got home, I made some phone calls. Soon the state AG's phone started ringing.

    When it was over and the dust settled, EVERY SINGLE trooper station in the state recieved a letter, the Attorney General's legal position paper, explaining to them that a person with a permit CAN carry on them in the car, and that the troopers were not allowed to harass them about it.

    I call that a win.

    That's BS. They know exactly what will work, they just don't want to use it. The question is why.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I've got the perfect solution for this galling crisis.

    Let's ship all of our armchair quarterbacks south of the border, so they can show the Mexican cartels how smartly badass they are.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I agree -- which has me worrying that there's a DIV 0 lurking around here somewhere . . .

Honestly I feel that their pusuit of fighting crime should be put elsewhere.

    lol I never got a speeding ticket until I was a bit older. Not the least bit proud of this, but one night when I was about 22, I was driving too stoned and had been drinking whiskey. I kept forgetting what I was doing, so I turned on the overhead light for some ridiculous reason. Unfortunately, it was a new car, and I had no idea how to turn it off. So when I got pulled over for speeding through a town known for mean & overzealous cops, I figured I was busted. When I politely explained that I couldn't provide an insurance card because I didn't have the mandatory insurance, the officer was surprisingly nice about it. I got off with a warning, and drove off with one hand over the dome light (which is no easy task with a manual transmission). I guess we all have stories.

I was in training and knew jack about Toledo but was told by the supervisors to be on guard on the NorthEastern part of town in the tree streets --- Cherry, Locust, Elm and Walnut - and that they had a code if things were getting hairy in the area, to call into dispatch and claim my GPS batteries were dead. That was code for that part of town saying you weren't going to be making any repairs on that ticket in that area that day. Low and behold, I was told this in New Haven CT at the training facility and that day, down the street there was a drive by shooting and 2 died 1 injured about 100 yards from where I was. I didn't think the outskirts of Yale University were that dangerous, but they are and apparently have been for a while.
    New Haven is a pitt. I've never been so scared any place in the world as I was the weekend I spent in New Haven.
