I won't bore you guys with the background of how I met the guy, but I was having a casual conversation with someone who also has their GFL. We ended up talking for about 35 or 40 minutes. At one point in our conversation, he mentions that he has a "concealed carry badge". Being somewhat clueless, I asked him about it. He went out to his car, reached into his glovebox, and pulled out a small, black, leather badge carrier. He opened it, and on one side there was a copy of his GFL. On the other side was a shiny, plastic, badge that looked like a police badge from a halloween costume, but instead of "Police", it had "Concealed Carry Permit" written on it. Clueless about what good such a thing could do, I asked him. The guy told me that he'd heard it was a "good idea", because it made the license look official and if you were stopped by a rookie cop, it would seem more authoritative. Personally, I have more faith in rookie cops than he does, and believe they can tell the difference between authoritative and not authoritative without the need of shiny costume jewelry. I also see so many other bad ideas about the concept. For example, someone might see a badge and think you were a real cop when you're not. You might get in trouble for trying to impersonate a police officer. At the very least you look like a middle-aged guy reliving his boy hood dreams of playing cops and robbers. But I could be wrong. What are y'alls thoughts on the matter? Can anyone think of any useful reason for having a "concealed carry badge" other than for the purposes of playing at a grown up version of "cops and robbers"?
