I was pulled over about 3 months ago for my license plate light being burnt out. And I did want I always do when I get pulled over : roll all windows down, keep my hands on top of the steering wheel, before I move I tell the cop that my gun is in my door pocket next to me. I did all of this so that cop is as comfortable as possible with me and usually the cop is very appreciative but not this time. After I did all of this and the cop swings my door open fast then proceeds to ask if I have a concealed carry permit and I told him that I do not. He then unloads my gun the slams it on my roof saying “what are you thinking hiding your gun in your door like that?" I told him to not slam my gun on my roof, respect my property, and I wasn't hiding anything and that I could have my gun anywhere in my car that I want. He told me that is not true; it has to be visible to him when he walks up to the car. I told him he was wrong and that my car is an extension of my home in the state of Louisiana and I can have the gun anywhere in my car except for on my person without a permit. He then told me I was wrong and that he knows the laws better than me because he is a cop, then I told him again that he was wrong. Then he came back with my ticket along with another cop, they both lectured my on how I was conceive carrying and the gun needs to be visible to anyone walking up to the car. So I asked where an acceptable place for me to ride around with it is and he told me on the passenger seat, on the center console, or on the dash. I then proceeded to laugh and drove off. My court date is in 1 hour and I wanted to know if anyone knew the law number that says your car is an extension of your home so I can show the cop today at court that he was wrong and file a formal complaint against him.
Thanks for your help,
