    Since that was probably 2005, that would have given me away as a time traveler from the future.

    I know, thanks. Just warning him of not consenting to any search.

    Some folks wonder why gun-rights advocates are against gun registration. This case illustrates a pretty good reason.

    Suddenly, every traffic stop turns into a search to guarantee the officer's safety.

    Florida plates and dark tint. SOP baby.

    This guy was in an expedition with Florida plates. Same thing. The cop was going to make that BIG arrest.

    This is exactly WHY we have the second amendment. Who wants this asshole cop to be the only one with a gun?

    You bet! Colorado plates are an open invitation to every cop having a bad day.

    I thought this was why we had the 4th amendment, the stop is/was the issue, IMO.

    That doesn't work in every state. If you do that in the mid-Atlantic area and on up in the Northeast you're looking at a felony.

    And the K-9 unit is going to alert on every molecule of that car. Probable cause for search. Coloradans should stay in state for vacation.
