I have never been harrassed by a cop during any administration.....Yes, I do see a pattern, of paranoia....For all I know, that cop could be a life-long criminal, pretending to be a cop. Just recently, they arrested a 25-year veteran cop for raping one woman, and after the story became public, have at least 10 more women come in later to make complaints against this former cop. Now, I have a problem with the overzealous cop. My brother-in-law has a permit. He was driving through a seedy part of town and gets pulled by 2 cops for a burnt out tail light. Right away they demanded his pistol, which he surrendered. They became highly upset to discover that it was loaded with a round in the chamber. I suppose they thought it would be unloaded? Then they tell him his jeep is unfit to drive any farther, so he must walk to the nearest autoparts store, or they will tow his vehicle. They return his weapon, only to tell him that while walking to this store in this same seedy area, he has to lock his pistol in the vehicle. At which point, he informs them that his permit allows him to carry lawfully, and with that he informs them he will be carrying his weapon, or he would like to see their superiors. They back off when he starts talking going over their heads and drive off. He went ahead and walked the mile to the autoparts store, all the while wondering whether he would make it before the store closed. He then filed a complaint with the police chief, but was told that nothing could be done because in the view of the officers, he constituted a threat, since he looked like a criminal with his shoulder length hair. Not possessing the cash to hire a lawyer, he dropped it. This harrassment occurred several years ago during the Clinton administration. Harrassment of law-abiding gun owners seems to occur during democrat adminstrations. Do you see a pattern, here?
