I got stopped by MSP in a station wagon going 81 in a 55 about 10 years ago coming back from a match. Had two Garands and couple hundred rounds. Gave him my licenses told him they were there: you could see the soft cases through the anyway.So.. Just out of curiosity.. What is the proper procedure for handling this? You're on the way back from the range with a trunk full o'gun. You get pulled over by this exact officer. Do you have any guns in the car? "Ummm, yes.. 3 ar15, 4 revolvers, 500 rounds of ammo...", or "I don't consent to my vehicle being searched." Or...
Smelling pot smoke is NOT probable cause for a stop or search (in MA).Yes, but he still needs a reasonable excuse to search the car and driver. Smelling pot is a reasonable excuse. Suspicious behavior is a reasonable excuse. Being a lawfully licensed gun owner is not a reasonable excuse.
Yes, this is correct. I sold a firearm about 3 weeks ago to someone that didn't have his PIN with him. He called CJIS and they did ask for his driver's license and LTC numbers.Ever get a PIN over the phone from CJIS? They usually use your MA DL to confirm your identity. So it's pretty obvious their systems are joined at the hip somehow. Probably has something to do with CJIS housing criminal records as well as LTC data. Yeah it gives me warm fuzzies that we're basically another table next to diddlers, etc.
Yup and it is not a net list. If you bought 10 and sold 9 it will still show 10 under your name.Oh really? How? The database keeps track of transactions in which you were transferror or transferee. I didn't know it nets all those transactions and shows the net left over of what you bought, minus what you have sold.
I know a lot of cops and was curious after I sold one of my guns if it was taken off the list of what I own so I had him pull up my list. The gun I had sold and transferred was still on my list.How do you know they can pull up a list of what is registered to you?
My popcorn imogie won't load, so guys please imagine it here:To the OP, my standard offer. I can look into this very discreetly if youd like. I can find out if this is one of the freshly minted troopers that just got his license to solo, or hes an old timer. I can also find out if your buddy embellished his tale just a little bit for flourish.
This is something I enjoy doing; either exposing an ******* cop, or an ******* friend, so if your buddy says hed rather not, feel free to pass that along. If hes concerned that my discreet interroggative may blackball him, I assure you, it wont.
Given that I would still take GPP up on his offer. He is the real deal and will not steer you wrong- and having him look into this could (potentially) make life a lot easier down the road for someoneThe story has no embellishment, as the person who experienced it is a 100% stand up and honest guy that I have known for years.

else that encounters that trooper.
That was mostly debunked like less than a week after it was posted. The incident in question supposedly had -absolutely nothing- to do with "assault weapons".Not sure why this surprises anyone or the story is in doubt. We heard of police staking out a NS Gun Club range shortly after the AG's announcement, asking questions.
My LTC might empower me to pull over a car that reeks? Awesome!
You're confused, OM.A Terry stop requires the officer to articulate two things. One, that he suspects you may be armed. Two, that he reasonably believes that you have committed a crime or are about to commit a crime.
... is simply stating that "all conversations that occur between the operator of this private motor vehicle are recorded for the operators safety" doesn't cut it in the DPRMA?
FTFY.There is probably a pool at the local barracks to see who is the 1st trooper to confiscate a newly illegalized [STRIKE=LINE]Maury[/STRIKE] Marsha assault weapon,and this guy was a go getter that wanted to win the cash.
The old rumor was that if something bad happened their fingerprints were now on your car.... sounds like old wives tale though.
Yes: they are allowed to frisk you if they have a reasonable articulable suspicion that you are armed and dangerous.Is the patdown still allowed if you TELL the LEO you ARE legally armed?
The search isn't illegal if the putative weapon is in plain view and within lunge distance of a vehicle occupant.Living in NH but travel frequently to MA we make sure we do a thorough check when we get in the car to head south. Make sure we remove the arm rest pistol, her ccw from her purse and any loose spent brass in the truck bed. I do, however, keep an extra killy looking AR 15 water gun on the floor of the back seat. I keep hoping to get the opportunity to refuse the illegal search to see what happens when he proceeds anyway.
I'm not sure, but you may want to refer to it as a "chien Alsacien" in France.
