    Does anybody have any updated information about the case linked below? A guy from North Carolina informed voluntarily (not required in VA) during a traffic stop in Fairfax County, Virginia. He ended up being falsely arrested for a variety of bizarre "offenses" which don't exist in Virginia. They tried [unsuccessfully] to keep his gun after a magistrate freed him. I'd say "after a magistrate dismissed the charges", but can a magistrate dismiss charges which don't even exist in law?

    I recall there being talk of suing the officers and Fairfax County, but haven't heard anything since.

    He was arrested for carrying a concealed handgun because the officer didn't know that NC and VA had reciprocity. I live in fairfax and never tell them when I carry, they prefer diversity to common sense in that PD. I haven't heard any more info either. I kind of hope the guy sue's and wins event though that drives my taxes up.
