I have never told them I had a weapon.
Most conversations on this topic usually go about 50:50.
The cops in West Monroe are bad about bird dogging the local head shops. About 10 years ago, they mistakenly thought 4lsu2 and I were leaving such establishment in my truck. They pulled us over at the first hint of a traffic infraction. It was Friday during hunting season so I had my standard issue pistol or 2 in there, a 7mm, a 12 gauge, and a 10/22 plus whatever 4lsu2 had in the back.
By the time they got m good and stopped, there was 4 patrol cars on me. They thought they had Pablo Escobar or something. You should hav seen his face when he asked if I had any guns in the vehicle.
I told him yes and he asked why so many? I said just because.
Well they thoroughly searched my truck and strew my shite out everywhere. They don't find a thing and begrudgingly sent us on our way.
TLDR. CSB. EAD.
ETA: the WMPD are some over zealous jack booted thugs.
