    While I'm of the opinion that 790.10 isn't applicable in this instance and that the LEO's reaction was purely rooted in his own insecurity you are lucky that under the current statutes 790.053 in effect that he didn't arrest you for open carry.

  3. Well said, SGB.

    BTW, I don't see anything in 790.10 that says the display of the gun must be intentional for there to be a violation.

    Seems like a large percentage of the population in Florida is scared of an American carrying a gun...
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

    Not sure about the more southern parts of Florida but I'm on the Flabama border and even with the good ol'e boys here people seem to be a bit uppity when it comes to owning/carrying a gun. I have my reasons but I'll keep them to myself since certain mentions of groups trigger flame wars. Personally I'd like to see more Americans with guns strapped to their hips but since our OC was shot down perhaps next year....

    Even an inadvertent reveal of your weapon if it can be classified as careless can be a prosecuted violation. Drawing down on you is potentially over the top but you were illegally displaying a gun. It's not the end of the universe but this is not some psycho rogue cop based on the information you offered. You did right to simply apologize and change your level of attention to detail.

    +1 on this

    You do realize you're talking about an 11 year old right?

    I'm going to agree with NavyLT on this one. You made an honest mistake, but when you carry, you are going to be hold to a higher standard than other people. Same goes for LEO...they get uphold to the same high standards.

    LEO makes a mistake he/she is a bad cop.
    CCW/CHL holder makes a mistake he/she is a Bad guy or gal.

    so the moral of the story is...try not to make it again....doublecheck your self all the time.

    absoultely agree with you, IF that is what I saw. however, having lived in asia and it taking me a good year to feel comfortable with college girls looking like they are 14yo...the hit-girl you posted dressed up in anime and participating in THAT level of violence did not make me feel I was looking at an 11yo. you could put that same outfit on my 42yo asian wife and she would look pretty close.

    but perhaps we should discuss YOUR bent, KNOWING that girl is 11yo, participating in THAT level of violence, AND using her as your identity icon. that is kinda creepy.

    darn, I swore I would never participate in these 'boring to everyone else' tagents.
