He just wants to go home at the end of the day, and anything that looks like a threat to that will be dealt with using whatever means he deems neccessary, including shooting you. Contrary to popular belief, cops DO NOT want or like to shoot people, and most find it traumatic to have to do so (afterwards). Don't put a cop in a potential spot. He has a family same as you that he'd like to go home to.
duh for the millionth time I never said that I'm carrying around an airsoft gun on my belt or walking down the street with it in my hand. Is he going to shoot me to death when he finds an unloaded airsoft gun in a box in the back of my car? I understand what you mean but you keep insinuating like I'm flashing it around in public and whatnot.
How is locked in a gun case different from inaccessible and out of sight? In either case he'll come across it first and I'm not going to lunge for it...
