    it is statewide, I believe that TX law prohibits any printing, maybe the larger (liberal) cities have stricter enforcement but you need to be careful about concealment in TX

    Ok, for those of you who say "concealed means concealed" Trust me, I understand, and I always keep my weapon concealed, however, my weapon did show a little, which happens, and thankfully, in Michigan there is no record of anyone ever being charged with Brandishing a Firearm, MSP defines it as stated already, "displaying a firearm in a threatening manner with the intention to cause alarm" that is almost a direct quote the MSP officer gave me over the phone, and guess what, she even said she broke out the book for that definition. lol. Anyway, thank you all for your support, carry on and stay safe.

If it is registered to you aslong as it has been atleast 30 days then you don't have to carry the registration
    What kind of insane unconstitutional state requires you to have a "registration" much less carry it around?

    Kinda sorta one of those keyboard cowboy sort of statements. In the real world, the OP did everything exactly right, especially with his 'kill them with kindness' mindset. The cops quickly and correctly assessed that the OP was fully legal and no threat to anyone. The system worked.

    There actually have been a couple of incidents in Michigan in which overzealous officers have tried to charge someone with brandishing because of the accidental exposure of a concealed firearm. That's why the law was amended a few years ago to specifically address the issue of accidental exposure of a concealed firearm. Thankfully, none went to trial and charges were dropped.

    How were his rights trampled? A nosy neighbor saw a firearm and reported it - overstating what actually happened in the process to insure that police had no choice but to respond. They responded to the complaint and found it to be baseless. Like it or not, and I am a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment and our right to carry (I carry myself), police can't simply tell someone who calls in with such a complaint, "Unless and until shots are fired at someone, we assume that anyone carrying a firearm is doing so legally." Based on the information they received from the complainant, someone was publicly waving a firearm around in a threatening manner (brandishing). Sorry, they have no choice but to make a polite inquiry at that point, which is exactly what they did. Now, I DO believe that if someone calls in and says that they observed someone with a clearly holstered pistol just walking around, but not threatening anyone in any way, the police have an obligation under those circumstances to remind the caller of our right to bear arms. As I said, the caller in this situation accused Itstjs of brandishing his firearm. Police have no choice to respond.

    People who make unwarranted or lie as to the situation should be charged with the time and money the officer/s wasted on unwarranted calls. That would stop a lot of those kinds of calls. But that is just my opinion. YMMV

    Wishful thinking, but I totally agree with you.
