Here is a media report:
The dimwits at the Hillsborough Sheriff Department illegally arrest someone who was transporting firearms legally.
Then they post photos and brag about it on Facebook.
As a result many thousands of public comments slammed the Sheriff Dept on the post and the Department eventually took the post down yesterday.
They have since issued a quasi-retraction which you can see here: https://www.facebook.com/HCSOSheriff...89259351109678
And they are still getting skewered in the comments. It is quite entertaining!
Not enough info in the article regarding the three concealed weapons. Were they on him or inside the truck securely encased?Inside his pickup truck, there was a hunting rifle and three handguns for which he did not have a permit for, according to the sheriff's office.
He was charged with open carry of the rifle and for having the three concealed weapons without a permit. The sheriff’s office said it has changed its mind and decided while the other charges were valid, the open carry charge was a mistake...

Not enough info in the Article to know if they were wrong on the "concealed handgun" charges. Article doesn't say if any of the "concealed handguns" were on his person or not. If they were merely "securely encased" not on his person, then they were wrong to charge him. If he was traveling to/from hunting or one of the other provisions in f.s. 790.25(3), they were wrong to charge him.

From what I read, the open carry charge has been dropped, but he's still on the hook for concealed carry without a CWFL, since he had three handguns in the vehicle that were not securely encased. Just based on the description of events leading up to the traffic stop, the guy sounds like a complete jackass.

Mr. Frisco’s traffic stop was incorrect in a portion of their interpretation of Florida Open Carry Laws. Mr. Frisco was not in violation regarding the manner in which he was transporting his rifle, however, that does not negate that he was in violation of the law for having three loaded firearms concealed and not securely encased in the vehicle. Mr. Frisco also does not have a concealed weapon permit.
The deputy searched Frisco's vehicle and found three loaded handguns -- no cases and ready to use
So they've dropped one violation and the others remain. Seems the errant charge has been corrected but it doesn't negate the other charges.

Media? It's not even worth opening the link, the media gets it right with such few actual facts, msm can't be relied on as a source of facts.

The department violated the law by deleting the post. I hope they are called to account for that.

I believe, and I may be wrong, he was implying that by removing their post, they were covering up/destroying potential evidence of possible police wrongdoing, and a more correct response would be to edit the existing post with a new paragraph citing the correction, rather than deleting the original post and writing a new one.

I thought the poster was saying it was illegal to delete a FB post.
