    Someone with a CC permit has the same authority that a normal citizen has, none.

    To me, a badge represents identity. The constitution represents authority. So unless someone with a badge, also brings a constitutional warrant, they have no authority over me.

    I assume you're a FF, and you know better, you just want to be argumentative.

    I left the fire department 6 months ago, I'm now on the railroad and an AHA instructor (CPR, AED, BLS, FA, ACLS, PHTLS, EPC, PALS).

    But, the two FD and 3 ambulance services I worked for, we did not want or wear badges, for the reasons I gave before. I'm not arguing your opinion is wrong, I was just thinking about this thread for a while, and wanted to express my opinion too.

    Why would an instructor need a badge? It would seem like business cards would be more appropriate. Admittedly, that is what I use.

    Not to mention, in New Mexico carrying a badge as a CHL holder can get you charged with impersonating a LEO. I am not real sure who you would show this badge to anyway. If you need to verify with Law Enforcement that you have a CHL why not just show them the license?

    Badges general purpose is to show "Authority". Whether it be a building (security guard), State Highways (Troopers), or Federal Jurisdiction (FBI, ATF, INS, etc.) for identification purposes to the public that you have the "authority" to do whatever in whosever jurisdiction. CCW Instructor or not does not have any authority, so therefore should not display any type of badge. Everybody wants to be official, lol.

    I feel a lot of people mistakenly say authority instead of tyranny when it comes to badges identifying those in enforcement...

    North Carolina will issue their CCW instructors a photo id card but we don't have, nor would I want, any type of badge.

    have your ccw badge in your wallet when you get stuck in a robbery, when they look in your wallet and see your CCW badge guess who they shoot first!!! Flash any badge when I am on duty and you are instantly in my radar big time. Only ID works, any moron can buy a badge.

    Is being shot first from the robber or the police officer?
