@Jimsd55-I can understand your sentiments if you live in a city or urban setting,but where I live and where this incident occurred,folks carrying,wearing firearms is common.I think this is where alot of our nations divide on firearms come from.Those of us who have grown up in a rural area,were raised with firearms.We were taught from a young age that guns are a useful tool and how to use them safely,while those who were raised in a city did not have that oppurtunity.As a police officer(and before you comment on this matter),I think you would need to consider the facts and the surroundings.In this case,the officer was definetly in the wrong and it looks like someone's personal agenda was being pushed.

A decorated war veteran on a Boy Scout hike with his 15-year-old son was arrested alongside a Texas country road after a police officer accused him of “rudely displaying” a firearm.

Army Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham told Fox News he was illegally disarmed by members of the Temple Police Dept. - even though he held the proper permits to carry his weapons.

Grisham and his son were on a 10-mile hike in a rural area populated by wild boars and cougars. He was carrying an AR-15 rifle and a .45 caliber pistol.

He was charged with resisting arrest - even though...
