If a person is armed then the officer has the right to do a Terry stop. The officer is making sure that person is legally carrying a firearm. There are people, even in friendly states, who are not legally carrying a firearm such as convicted criminals. There is also officer safety and the officer may want to make sure the firearm is not loaded around them.

If you are carrying anything which might harm the officer or others then a Terry stop can be performed.

Pawpaw is an experienced law enforcement professional and he knows what he can and cant do in his particular locality.
