There is no obvious reason (I wasn't there and am going on what the article says) that gun should have been taken away from him. It's another situation where folks don't know their rights and the law takes advantage of that.
KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GETTING INTO. THE RESPONSIBILITY IS YOURS, NOT THE POLICE OFFICERS.
They simply cannot be up to speed on every
law they have to enforce, so they use their own PERSONAL judgment unless it can be proven otherwise. They can't be blamed for that.
Stand up for yourself, be polite, and show them the confidence that comes from knowing what you are talking about.
