Unintended (?) consequence of gun control movement: Man with legal conceal carry tackled for having a gun

Or should I say the “gun safety movement“?

WTSP.com: A Lithia (Florida) man has been charged after he tackled another man Tuesday who had a handgun in a holster — and a permit to carry — at a Wal-Mart.
About 11:58 a.m., deputies responded to the store at 11110 Causeway Blvd. where Clarence Daniels had been taken to the ground by Michael Foster, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
Foster had seen Daniels getting out of his vehicle in the lot with handgun, under his coat and in a holster. Foster followed him into the store and attacked the Daniels, the sheriff’s office said.
The report said Foster did not call 911 until he tackled Daniels.
Once inside the store, Foster approached Daniels from behind, placed him in chokehold and took him down against his will and without permission. A brief struggle ensued. When Foster grabbed the man, he began yelling that Daniels had a gun.
Daniels, 62, has a concealed weapons permit and yelled that fact during the struggle. Both individuals were detained until deputies arrived on scene.
Foster, 43, was taken into custody and charged with battery.

Maybe call 911 if he had concerns back off and monitor the guys actions until the police arrive. I’ve seen some nuts in Wal Mart I felt should be ‘detained’ too. Frequently. I do not think alerting an ‘Associate’ would help much. But this person did not fit that demographic in my book. It appears from the videos he was walking along with a stroller and a small child. Too bad Clarence wasn’t trained to drop Foster like a sack of white trash. That would have settled it. But… You got to properly conceal your gun to avoid stuff like… Read more »

Oh, it’s probably intended… making so many people afraid of they do dumb stuff like this plays right into Bloomberg’s “gun safety” bullcrap.

Yes, dip-wad Foster needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law–then Mr Daniels needs to bring suit in court for say several million for this needless assault, particularly since Mr Daniels called out that he had a permit to carry. Perhaps that would stop dumb heads from needlessly assaulting innocent Americans as they go about their own business. Man of man! How I would love to serve on that jury!

They have open carry in Virginia, and Florida has reciprocity deal with Virginia.
Another minor point is they sell guns and ammo in Walmarts.
But the Nazis are doing everything they can think of to take away all privately held guns.
How about that: you get a job patting down Walmartians as they come in the store. Yuck.

After considering this scenario again, Foster say Mr Daniel’s gun in holster as he (Mr Daniel) got out of his vehicle. I would think that someone who was driving would not necessarily have their jacket closed up while driving. That that person might well adjust his jacket, close it and then proceed to go about their business. Whereas, Foster purposely did not call 9-1-1, instead, as Jane has pointed out–he let his Superman complex overtake him, and he committed assault on an innocent stranger. To those who do “carry” –do you wear your jacket buttoned, or zipped up while driving,… Read more »

I don’t have a CCW,but I open-carry often. I use a tactical holster (with 3 loaded extra mags),hung low enough on my thigh that none of my jackets cover it. I believe,Constitutionally,I can carry openly,or concealed,but like many of us I don’t have the money to fight an “Unlawful Concealed Weapon” charge in Court,and so far my observation is that my gun would be confiscated and not returned (“lost” or something). If I was financially able,I’d make it a point to carry however I chose to,and hire the GREAT Constitutional Attorneys to fight the “sanctions” in Court,until I made it… Read more »
