The next step is enhanced carry that allows for a wider area that you can carry
This is not in dispute.. they have the 911 tapes to verify this.
And to answer your question.. you have the officer disarm you first, then either allow them to retrieve your wallet or ask them if you may get it. This is taught in the concealed carry class... you do everything you can to put the officer at ease.
sounds good chief, thanks.
I was never saying anyone did right or wrong, im trying to understand how the law should work if I am in that situation...
only problem now is....
so now we are back to the person the claim is about having to prove their defense rather than the caller having to prove he did what they said he did??? even though many on here have always said burden of proof is on the one making the claim
At that point, they are required by law to inform the police if they have a CC permit
§1313. Code of Conduct of Permittees
B. Duties and Responsibilities of the Permittee
1. A permittee armed with a handgun shall notify any police officer who approaches the permittee in an official manner or with an identified official purpose that he has a handgun on his person, submit to a pat down, and allow the officer to temporarily disarm him. Failure to comply with this provision shall result in a six-month automatic suspension of the permit.
So at this point, if you had a gun and it was not in plain view, and you didn't announce that you have a permit, whether you are a permit holder or not, you are in violation of the law.

I am sure it is not this simple, but if a policeman ask's you to do something you just do it. You shut your mouth, get on the ground, spread eagle, and say, officer, i have complied, what do I need to do next? You don't fight, you don't run your mouth, you don't act threating in any way, to do so is taking your life into your own hands.
If the officer is violating your civil rights, you have a case that MANY MANY MANY lawyers will be willing to take up...and here is the best part...you have your LIFE!!
A police officers job when he gets to a scene is to stop everything and try to figure out what has happened. That is why it is so important to comply with the officers commands.
In the USA, you are innocent until proven guilty. Plain and simple. The officers know this and they also know that people get thing wrong all the time and people have the right to defend themselves. That is why, again, the officer has to stop everything when they get to the scene to be able to figure things out.
When people resist, they are breaking the law, therefore, they choose to give up certain rights and open themselves up to be arrested.
31Ragin97 seems to be missing the point. In Louisiana unless you are a law enforcement officer you CANNOT carry a gun (open or concealed) on a school campus.
To add to that....if this person was carrying off campus and was licensed conceal carry he would still be in violation. The law is pretty clear. You open carry in clear view (properly holstered) or you conceal carry with no view of the firearm.
I got it now, thanks cajun 90, thougjt it was a great thread. Not everyone needs to say someone is wrong, answeri g questions works well ... No issue just great to learn
