In Florida, it is perfectly legal to have a firearm in one's vehicle, as long as it is not in plain sight. This is because a soccer Mom might glance your way then drive into a sidewalk full of nuns upon seeing a G-G-G-G-GUN!
In other words, there was no crime committed. The cops towed the car because the idjit didn't have his registration, but the story clearly states that he was charged with "possession of a concealed firearm".
Which, we repeat for those of you tuning in from Rio Linda, in and of itself is NOT a crime in The Gunshine State.
Great reporting. NOT.
