Should you use your firearm for self-defense (heaven forfend) you will have an interaction with the police. In that situation, they are not your friend. The only words out of your mouth should be “My life was in danger. I want to speak to my lawyer.” Or, alternatively, nothing. The right to remain silent means the right to remain silent. If the cops arrest you, ask for a lawyer at that point. And then continue to STFU (Shut The F Up). So hats off to jecm21088 for NOT doing what so many open carry advocates do: argue constitutional law with officers on the street. To quote Montell Jordan, this is how we do it.
