Glad Virginia Is Not Part of 1st Circuit

Found this over on Dave Hardy's Arms and the Law.

The First Circuit has ruled that an LEO can respond to a carrier of a concealed arm by throwing down on him, detaining him even after he produced a permit to so carry, and then seize the firearm despite the permit.
There are a couple of localities in Virginia that have a habit of harassing gun owners (Norfolk in particular and more recently Roanoke), particularly those who carry openly, and have been sued. Norfolk was required to pay $10,000 damages to one gun owner in July of 2009 to settle such a suit. If the we were in the 1st Circuit, Norfolk and other localities that are no particularly gun friendly may get away with their harassing.

Hat tip to Dave Hardy.
