FHP misrepresenting the law to a citizen during a traffic stop
Below are links to a video — the same video — one is on Facebook the other is on YouTube. I suspect it will go viral so I thought you should see it.
The video is of a Florida Highway Patrol trooper in the SW Florida area (between Sarasota and Naples) totally misrepresenting the law to a citizen. At minimum, this appears to be a situation of poor training.
Nothing in Florida law requires law-abiding people to carry their firearms unloaded — much less with the magazines removed — while in their vehicles, and certainly not concealed weapons license holders who are carrying on their persons. That would defeat the purpose of carrying for self-defense.
FHP making up new laws as they please ~ didn't really want to post this as the LEO was very polite but at the same time…
