    Exactly. Unless PPD is going to stop every person operating a motor vehicle just to confirm they have a driver's license, than they should NOT be stopping every person carry a firearm just to confirm licensed.

    I think V says it best.

    Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, think, and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well, certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the(Edit,The Government).They promised you order, they promised you peace, and all they demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

But a law abiding American man who decides to be responsable for his own well being and doing so well within the letter of the law has nearly all his rights infringed upon, where's the out cry? Where's the blind liberal rage that so vigorously defends the wronged. If LEO were to pull that crap round here you dont got a job bud. And if you kept up with current news, O/C is a very near reality with the issue being taken up in our state gov. And with a republican majority and a pro gun govner, we got a real good shot(pun intended).
    This is called an unlawful presentation of deadly force. No threat was present, officer on-scene identified that no threat existed, witnesses could confirm such, thus if the use of force continuum is followed properly then deadly force presentation IS NOT authorized based upon the actions of that individual.

    That my friends is what's called deadly force assault if you or I were to present deadly force upon another person without being justified. It's yet another example of why recorders are so vital and why LEOs and law makers should be held fully accountable for law violations even during the course of their duties. That would mean no union lawyers, no taxpayer funded administrative leave, no paid vacations, just the same treatment as if you were John Q. Public.

    Anyone want to take bets that the reason they're railroading him is because it was recorded and posted on the web? The Attorney General needs to step in and in turn railroad everyone involved in this matter except the LAC. Remove all of their authority, suspend all pay and benefits, immediately discharge them from employment, and file criminal charges for assault on behalf of the LAC.

    It looks like the Fiorino case was continued until Sept.15th

    Second, obey the police at all times. It will get sorted out based on the law. But if the LEO doesn't know the law you're not going to educate him on the scene. When refusing to get on your knees you're guilty of obstruction and are inviting a forceful takedown. Just shut up and let the law work its solution.

    The best fight you ever win is the one you don't have. Conceal it, shut your mouth and obey LEO commands. Damn this site is crammed with the same open-carry trouble story over and over.

    Concealing isn't an option for everyone. Do you not understand that CCW permits are actually a Constitutional Amendment violation? It says: shall not be infringed. No conditions are placed upon the ownership or carrying of firearms in the Constituiton or its Amendments, none what so ever.

    Huh...obey the police at all times, it will get sorted out? Have you never understood how Internal Affairs works and exactly why it exists? IA is intended to make it look like something is being sorted out, but in reality it's being covered up and due justice is never served. It's called internal for a reason!

    Granted I tell students that it's better to comply and file the complaint, at least you'll be alive to do so. But, simply giving in to LEO demands under the color of law or what that LEO "thinks" is the law isn't always acceptable. This is why recording devices are so absolutely vital! An even bigger problem looms when a LEO unjustifiably presents deadly force. Point a gun at a citizen unjustifiably/unlawfully and you're no different than any other gun-weilding criminal and you may be giving that citizen the right to use deadly force in return. Is it wise for that citizen to do so? Probably not. Do I condone such behavior? No I do not. But it's a check that LEOs need to be considering.

    Case in point: The video of the guy on the sportbike when a plain clothed LEO blocks him in, exits the vehicle, pulls a gun, orders him off the bike multiple times, and fails to identify himself as LEO for several seconds. That is an incident that would have easily justified the gun weilding person being shot. The rider was charged for violating "wire tapping" laws once the video hit youtube, all a knee-jerk reaction because the LEO got caught violating the law and the rights of that individual.

    Second case in point is the incident in Ohio. No need to post up the information again, it's readily posted on this forum. LEO caught making direct threats of harm to 2 citizens, one of which threatened with an execution and potential cover up by the LEO's partner, one of which being a CCW permit holder that attempted to disclose under State law. Remember, an alleged "deal" was made in this case to sign a liability release not to sue the LEO or the PD and the charges for failure to notify would be dropped. Tell me that compliance is best, this person complied and look what's happening...we'll drop the charges if you'll help us bury this incident.

    When a LAC (law abiding citizen) is doing nothing wrong and can illustrate such by permit issued by the State, mandated Statute, or any other means then the LEO community should know well enough to leave it the heck alone.

    What shall not be infringed? The right to bear arms. That isn't a self defining phrase. It needs interpretation - which is left to our judicial branch of the government.

    The right to bear arms presently includes the right to own a handgun for personal protection in your home. It might eventually be expanded to more than than that, but right now everything beyond that is a mere fantasy.

    Blame me, because almost every time I read NavyLCDR's posts, he is in full agreement with ME!

    ........Although, I will admit, if enough people followed suit, Fiorino's neighborhood would probably be a lot safer.
    Well, I am surprised, and more than a little hurt, that you would suggest that I (a fellow American citizen) am less deserving to exercise my 2nd amendment right to self defense just because I live east of the Mississippi River.

    Besides, immediately afterward you provide a very good reason for, as you called it, "poking the bear".

    Would you have believed him if he made these claims WITHOUT a recording?

    Isn't it amazing the posters who wish to present themselves as supreme patriots by either the implication of their handle (LOL) or the appelations and accusations of their words?

    Most have zero experience of having killed someone, face to face from 8 feet away with a handgun. And hopefully, most never will.

    Some of us who have been denegraded by this forum's posters have, 15 years ago, spent $thousands of dollars to be judged not guilty in court for legally having our weapon on our person. The LEOs went away with a pat on the back.

    NO fun and I chose to not have to do it again.

    Those of you who have the intestinal fortitude should go out this week and openly confront LEOs to advance your carry adjenda. Just think how it will expand your bragging rights if YOU are arrested and charged.

    When the D.A.s prosecutor Jason Perez knew their case of me pointing a firearm at a person was weak, and their witness Steven Jay Sockey was having a hard time remembering the lies he had already told under oath.
    He tried telling the jury what a danger I had put everyone in the Gym to, just by having this fully loaded DANGEROUS WEAPON in my gym bag.
    If the jury could not convict me of their count one pointing a weapon at a person, just maybe they could go ahead and find me guilty anyway, just to show they cared about every ones safety.

    I am glad my jury saw through their flawed scam, and found me not guilty.
