I don't blame them for stopping to ask you to verify it was a semi auto.


The whole being searched and stuff etc is not right.

It was like an hour in police custody maybe a little less.

Did they say you were under arrest or why you were being detained.

LOL, I wouldn't blame them for stopping and asking a couple questions, but they actually never checked to see if my rifle was loaded or semi-auto. Just took it and tossed it in their trunk right away. As I said I wouldn't mind a couple questions, but it wasn't a couple questions. They were interrogating me trying to get to to slip up or admit to hunting, smoking weed, and lying about my identity.

Did you ask for a ride home, or explain to them why you were waking. If the story you tell us is true, that's nice of them to give you a ride, and they searched you for their SAFTEY. I would have done the same.

He kept saying that though it was legal it wasn't alright due to current events and it was scaring people.

So documenting me like a criminal is what I should thank them for? Terry V Ohio says a suspect must be beleived to be engaging in criminal activity. And in order to even Stop, nevermind search, someone you must meet two or more criteria they set down. If anything I was "out of place" but there had been no crimes committed in the area, i wasnt loitering in front of a bank, im not in a high crime area, or w/e the other tests are. Being detained and searched for having a perfectly legal rifle doesn't seem right to me. They only gave me a ride home after questioning me and searching me and finding out they had nothing to arrest me for.

A good lawyer may tell you that you have been inconvenienced and have no legal recourse. Be ready for that possible outcome. When I needed a lawyer recently, I called the county bar association. They referred me to a lawyer (that costs $35) who got my problems sorted out for the grand price of $100.

Doesn't this seem like a breach of the 2nd amendment and 4th amendment? As well as both of Vermont's equivalents. Not to mention Terry v Ohio and the tests an officer has to pass in order to even stop someone. Then there is Florida v. J.L., 529 U.S. 266 (2000) which I think it almost a mirror of what happened to me, except I wasn't committing a crime.

Chris- I am NOT a lawyer. Nor are the other folks responding to you.

If you are asking for opinions- yeah, everybody got one or two- does not mean they are worth anything.

If you have not, you may want to read all of this carefully.
