So, the other day I was involved in a rear end collision. Nothing major, just a kid not paying attention smashed his car into mine. Insurance info was exchanged, and the highway patrol was called to the scene. The Trooper was young, still wearing his academy graduation ring. I handed him my driver's license and my ccw permit, and informed him I was armed. His whole demeanor instantly changed. He almost yelled at me,"where is the gun? Do not reach for it, just tell me where it is". I calmly told him it was holstered in the 4 o'clock position on my hip. He then had me face his cruiser and had me lace my fingers behind my back. He then held my fingers tightly and said he was going to disarm me. He lifted my shirt, exposing my firearm, and asked "is there a round in the chamber?". I said "yes, sir". Then he asked "is the safety engaged?". Again, I replied "yes, sir". He then instructed me "do not move, I am going to remove your weapon". The Trooper then disarmed me, removed the magazine and cleared the chamber. He then pocketed my gun and magazine and frisked me, removing my keys and the small keychain knife from my pocket. He also removed my spare magazine. He then asked me if I had any other weapons or contraband. I said "no, sir". After he was satisfied I did not, in fact, have a rocket launcher in my pants or a bomb under my shirt, (not for lack of looking) he locked my gun and spare magazine in the trunk of his car. He then gave me a report to fill out about the accident. I completely understand the officer was just looking out for his own safety, but it made me feel like I was a common criminal. The kid's father, in the meantime, had shown up, and told the officer he had a ccw permit as well. The officer asked him if he was armed and he told him "no". The officer did not search him, even though he had a rifle in a gun rack in the back window of his truck. I was the victim in the accident, but the officer made me feel like I had done something wrong because I was legally carrying a handgun. After I had filled out my report and the officer had called in my driver's license and found nothing in my file, he returned my handgun, but told me "do not reload it until you have left the scene". Maybe I'm making too much out of this, but I felt violated. It's not like I was trying to hide the fact that I had a gun. I was forthright as soon as I made contact with the officer and told him I was armed. I was not agitated or upset about the accident. I'm sure, being that the Trooper was a new rookie, he was trying to be safe, but I feel he went a bit overboard.
