Hey peeps, this just happened to me about almost four hours ago (about 9:15 PM Pacific time).

I was driving home, got pulled over. The officer comes up to my side and asks me where I'm going. I replied with " what's the problem officer, what'd I do?" Then he asks for my DL, registration and ins stuff, I say alright and pull out my wallet, retrieve my ins and regulations papers from the glove box and hand them over. Next he asks me " do you have any firearms or any other kind of weapons in your truck?" I replied with NO OFFICER I DO NOT. He says "do you know why I'm asking you this?" I said I'm assuming for your own safety, he says "mostly because you've got all of those gun stickers in your rear window". I asked him so when is that illegal?  He of course says "it's not illegal but it should be seeing as how the only people who should have guns are the law enforcement and government military people". I replied with "you mean just like Hitler did in Nazi Germany?" He looks at my documents hands them back and says "goodbye" and walks off.

Apparently if you advertise on your vehicle that you support your civil rights you run the risk of being pulled over if any anti-gun cops spot you. >:(

Sorry to hear of your harassment... I was told many years ago by a Peace Officer friend, that all bumper stickers are used by law enforcement to target for probable cause... it's sad but true... have a Greatful Dead sticker .... you'll be pulled over and they will be looking for drugs... have a Hillary for president in Commiforia and you will get a police escort... best not to advertise... simple American flag or something discreet... thiefs also look for bumper stickers...

here in Montana we just carry our rifles,flint locks, lever action,pump action,bolt, semi auto, slect fire, in the pick-up gun rack displayed out the rear window of the cab...no bumper stickers needed.

You know actually it's LEGAL to have a Rifle in your rifle rack in your back window too, even in California. Just as long as it isn't loaded and if it isn't a type that California considers to be an "assault Rifle". There's no law against that.  However in vehicles Rifles do not have to be in any case like it cab be in a rack without being encased. With Assault weapons they need to be registered with the CA DOJ and transported in a LOCKED container. But regular Rifles are treated differently. 9_9

Oh I think it may have also been caused in part by one sticker thar stands out more than the others.  I don't know how to post a photo of it here so I'll describe it.  It has a big hand putting up the middle finger and underneath it reads.

FUCK GUN CONTROL:D

You should have recorded the conversation. He did not have probable cause to detain you.

Yea Rolin, if I would have been arrested and charged with something I might have suggested that to my lawyer. B|

But seeing as how I didn't have anything illegal in my truck and I wasn't breaking any law anyway, and I wasn't arrested. So there's really no reason why I should complain about this. No probablprobable cause, that is true there was no PC for the pull over stop. But he didn't beat me up so not much point in my botching about the stop to anyone. I only mentioned it here, just to advise everyone that certain bumper stickers can persuade some cops to stop you.>:(

I believe that would happen in the OP's country. I don't advertise my firearms...anywhere.

Here in "flyover" country, we don't really need to worry so much. But I still don't go into "controlled" areas before removing the pro gun stickers. All stickers are mounted on "bumper buddies"... essentially a large refrigerator magnet. No need to aggravate the drone locals. I try to stay out of gun free/idiot zones.

Firearm related stickers in my neck of the woods only promotes theft.

Never understood why some think they are the "privileged" ones that the second amendment applies to? :ph34r:
