I meet officers at Starbucks all the time, we chat, and they ask me what I'm carrying today and I tell them and we go our seperate ways. Its always consensual - of course I was their shooting instructor in the academy but still. Its wrong to say "no such thing" maybe no such "common" thing.

Fair point. Definitive blanket statements that don't account for exceptions to the rule are irresponsible.
