There's a new site on the internets tubes that tracks the arrests of our greatest Teabagger-Americans, the fine patriots who possess concealed carry weapons (CCW) permits. It's a shame that such true Americans are harassed for simply exercising their Second Amendment rights. You'd think the police would have much better things to do, like tazing the disrespectful or arresting brown people for losing their keys.
I've gone through the list and randomly picked a few cases to look at a little more closely. In each case, I found that the patriotic CCW holder was simply acting in the manner God and the NRA intended.
I've organized them into specific categories of lawful use below.
Auto Insurance Negotiation
There's noting that settles an auto insurance related negotiation faster than a 9mm.
Edmond, Oklahoma – An angry driver pulls a gun on an Oklahoma couple during a road rage incident. Concealed weapons permit holder, 43-year-old Darryl Inman, charged with felony. Inman is currently a pilot for JetBlue.
Beavercreek, Ohio – CCW holder Jason Todd Waple placed his 9 mm handgun up to a man’s neck after a New Year’s Eve traffic dispute.

Jeffersonville, Kentucky – Concealed weapons permit holder, 39-year-old Michael Dunn, is being held on seven counts of first-degree child sodomy in a case involving a 14-year-old boy. In a separate case, Dunn is being charged with filing incomplete firearms training records while servicing as a concealed weapons instructor. In February 2008 a grand jury found Dunn acted in self-defense when he shot and killed a man during a dispute at his home.

Larson, who had eight prior [I'd say eight DUI's qualifies as a career] operating a vehicle while intoxicated arrests, had a loaded .45-caliber pistol in his car, as well as a large folding knife, brass knuckles, and a bag of marijuana. He was charged with operated a vehicle while intoxicated , felony improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle, using weapons while intoxicated, and possession of marijuana.
