Story from a Minnesota State Trooper:
I made a traffic stop on an elderly lady the other day for speeding on MN State Highway 210 at Mile Marker 197 just East of McGregor, MN.
I asked for her driver’s license, registration, and proof of insurance.
The lady took out the required information and handed it to me. In with the cards I was somewhat surprised (due to her advanced age) to see she had a Conceal Carry permit. I looked at her and ask if she had a weapon in her possession at this time.
She responded that she indeed had a .45 automatic in her glove box.
Something—body language, or the way she said it—made me want to ask if she had any other firearms. She did admit to also having a 9mm Glock in her center console. Now I had to ask one more time if that was all. She resonded once again that she did have just one more, a .38 special in her purce. I then asked her what was she so afraid of.
She looked me right in the eye and said, “Not a f—ing thing!”
I am not sure where this originates from or if it’s real or not, but if it is this old lady is cool with us! We don’t carry because we are afraid, we carry because it’s our right as an American.
