I was stopped by police for suspicion of solicitation. They took Menander my passenger out of the car and asked to search the car. I said yes. They searched the car. I told them I was a confirms weapons permit holder and informed them that I had a handgun in the car.
The police took my handgun and did not arrest either myself or my passenger. They told me I was lucky and that they might issue a warrant for my arrest.
I did not realize that they had taken my gun until I got home.
I did not get the names of the 2 officers.
Can they legally take my legally possessed firearm like that?
