(Introduction from the video:)
"If you conceal-carry, and if you drive and you're pulled over by a Law Enforcement Officer, what do you do? What do you do, what are the things you DON'T do, that are going to keep you safe and are going to keep the Law Enforcement Officer safe?"CPSO: How should you react when pulled over with a firearm in yo - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana:
The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office has teamed up with Legally Armed America to create an instructional video on how you should act if you get pulled over and have a firearm. The video demonstrates the difference between a compliant and non-compliant driver. It also explains some dos and don'ts if you have a weapon on you when you get pulled over.I won't steal the traffic from the original article, so go to the above CPSO link to find the video.
"When you have nothing to gain by being non-compliant ... why be non-compliant?"
The ultimate message, of course, is: "don't be THAT GUY!"
