I know, but it doesn't make it right.
I'd love to see someone call them on it.
How the fcku are you gonna take my gun when it was the gun on that table over there???? Officer, please GTFO!
I don't think they knew which gun or who was involved, so the whole area was considered the scene.
I'm sure they probably meant they were going to detain everyone rather then take everything and wave as they were leaving.
Which brings up a thought I've pondered...
The guy who taught the CHL class we took last week is a cop, and he told a story about getting pulled over. The duty cop refused to accept the CHL ID card when presented and asked just for the DL. When he (duty cop) noticed a shotgun in the back, he asked why he had it. Driver cop said he was hunting and duty cop said it's not hunting season, blah blah...and asked for the CC gun, took it, cleared the ammo and complained about not getting a CHL license handed to him. He then "tossed" it on the hood of the truck, then took the shotgun and disarmed it too. Story went on from there, but the driver was not charged with anything and was given his guns back on the scene...
FYI, driver cop was hog hunting.
My question may not relate [completely] to this story but.. Lets say a cop was threatening to seize your gun. If you know he is wrong in his actions, he can still jail you for non compliance (if thats the correct term) right?
FWIW, I've never had any issue with a cop, thinking that he was in the wrong about anything he was doing pertaining to me. I have just had this question on my mind for a long time and thought someone may have an answer.
