I understand what you mean, but I would bet that different police organizations there have lobbied against the open carry law in NM. That is what those organizations do.
Yeah, I mean good for him and all but if It were me on that traffic stop(I'm not a cop BTW) I'd be wanting to know why some guy just walked up with a handgun and a video camera.
I bet the officer really felt threatened. The guy was busy videotaping the entire time.

There is a certain unspoken basic tenet to being armed.
That is NEVER flirt with situations which could possibly be misconstrued.Never apear aggressive towards any one LEOs especially.
Being armed means one must be respectful and considerate of the situations that fact puts others in.
Being armed is is a right, but carrying safely, considerately is a duty thats paramount.
If you want respect you give respect.Consideration for others keeps "accidents "from happening.

Well, I'm not a lip-reader, but I swear I saw this word come out......
