    can you imagine the news story?

    "Police say it is totally legal to threaten people with an unloaded weapon!"

    There would be people doing it all the damn time.

    It would be pretty easy to rob people and not worry about the consequences of getting caught.

    As said above, the guy would have been shot before he knew what happened around here.

    Heh, the reaction would be different depending on what range I was at :

    There's a kinda ghetto but far more affordable and less pretentious range where he jut would've gotten tuned by the ROs, or there's a WAY WAY high end (think Beverly Hills Gun Club) range where he would've gotten tuned by the ROs by like, an M4A1 or an MP5.

    at my range he woulda been staring down the barrels of a .44 magnum revolver, a 1911, and a glock 26 if he pulled that shit...
    (those guns are what the RO's carry all the time)

    Remember, this happened in the parking lot, not actually in the range on the firing line.

    I'm disappointed in my state, but I guess the retards have to live somewhere. I'm not too familiar with that part of the state, but I'm assuming they're pretty "good ole boy." I know here you'd be in jail doing that with a toy gun, if not dead.

    Wow. That's absolutely amazing. Isn't there any brandishing law or something like that. I mean, obviously there are many many more things he should have been charged for. This is absolutely ridiculous. Someone needs to go to a higher authority.

    Yeah, but it's Florida, so why the RO's can't conceal carry is beyond me. You'd think in that line of job, you'd want to have a CCW for cases just like this scenario.

    I was telling my brother about it and he reminded me that he and another guy arrested some guy a few months ago for robbing a Subway with a BB gun. Of course, it could have been loaded.:noes:

    The range I go to here.. He would have just been shot by a couple of rednecks, and then dumped off the side of the road into the gulley.

    Then again, that range is just a big dirt hill everyone shoots into.

    Horribe, just horrible. It seems like any idiot can become a cop. No disrespect to any LEO's on here, but damn, cops are chumps these days.

    It depends largely on the department. Sunrise PD basically takes anyone and it's very easy to get on with them, other departments in the area like Ft. Lauderdale are much tougher and there is a lot of competition. A lot of people who are unable to get hired by some of the more respected agencies in the area like Ft. Lauderdale, WPB, etc. go to Sunrise and the other small suburb departments which have low standards.

    I'd get in touch with the local media, I'm sure they'd jump on a story like that.
