Sounds like someone was throwing their weight around.

And just a recommendation... punctuation makes it much easier to read posts.

Check out your Fl laws - http://www.ehow.com/list_6775616_concealed-weapons-laws-florida.html - My laws here would not allow that.

Most states have laws that specifically permit officers to disarm permit holders while they are being detained (even for traffic infractions). It is difficult to acertain exactly what the situation was as I was not there and your punctuaton (or lack thereof) made it difficult to comprehend.

Lack of punctuation makes it very difficult to understand what you are saying.

Does your friend have a license to carry concealed in Florida?

Yes he does

I live in Florida, at the other end of the state, and I have not heard of anyone being so mistreated up here.

It is not required in Florida to tell a cop you are carrying, unless he asks. If the cop thought he was "bragging" by telling him it may have set off the cop's alarm bells. If he don't ask, I don't tell.:)

What I have a problem with would be the cuffs. Once the victim was disarmed the cop would have to be a real wuss to still be afraid of him. If the cop was doing his job correctly, by the time the car rolled to a stop, he knew who the car was registered to, and if there were any problems associated with car/owner.

I understand a cop not wanting to write an expensive ticket to an unknown person that had a gun on his hip, and wouldn't want to turn his back to walk back to his car, but unless he cuffed every traffic stop, he was focusing on the gun unreasonably. By having a valid driver's license and a CCW, the victim already demonstrated that he was not a career criminal, and not likely a threat.....

I would bet that the cop was not a State Trooper, those guys are usually about as professional as cops get.
