Had the driver planned to shoot the pimp if he and his prostitute tried to rob him? I'm sure carry concealed does not permit doing armed drug deals because you have a state permit to carry a gun and can buy illegal drugs legally armed; nor does it give you the right to buy sex from a prostitute legally armed, accompanied by her pimp, who you worry might try an rip you off. The driver had plenty of time to reveal he had a firearm, while the back seat was being searched by one of the officers. This is a perfect example of a man probably out buying sex and putting himself in harm's way, but because he has the legal right to carry a concealed weapon feels he has the right to shoot a man if the deal goes bad or personally against his wishes. This is a case for state legislators, because already reforms are needed. Since more problems of this sort and other similar types are bound to surface in the future. "Why would a person permitted to carry concealed be in the presents of a drug dealer or a prostitute and her pimp, when these professions are associated with crime?"
