Below are two links to a video -- the same video -- one is on Facebook the other is on YouTube. I suspect it will go viral so I thought you should see it. The video is of a Florida Highway Patrol trooper in the SW Florida area (between Sarasota and Naples) totally misrepresenting the law to a citizen. At minimum, this appears to be a situation of poor training. Nothing in Florida law requires law-abiding people to carry their firearms unloaded -- much less with the magazines removed -- while in their vehicles, and certainly not concealed weapons license holders who are carrying on their persons. That would defeat the purpose of carrying for self-defense. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=657740267647871&set=vb.100002357118942&type=2&theater http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwQ7kHSeOXI
