    It absolutely seems unreasonable.

    You're probably right. I'm all for makin' the police comfortable enough to avoid being shot, but based on all the abuse of power going on these days, this will be just the pointy end of the wedge with more abuse to follow.

    This really is nothing new. Courts all over the country have said officers can temporarily seize a firearm for "Officer Safety".

    As I have said in here many times before, God bless the police and I wish them a safe shift...if and when this temporary removal during a traffic stop is abused, that is the time to deal with that particular circumstance. If it sounds like I am on the side of the cops, duh, yeah, I am...it it gets a cop home in one piece, I am all for it.

    As long as this is only for the duration of the traffic stop I see little issue with it. But retaining possession of the weapon after the stop when unjustified should clearly be outlined as bad juju.
