ok hate to admit it but I had never heard of them before and had only come across some searching ccw ideas on pinterest. they looks much like a official officers badge with concealed carry permit, ccw on the face. the examples I saw were either in a wallet with your ccw permit or cliped on or near the holster. Makes it more official looking. I think it might be a nice addition and make a time when you may have to identify yourself as carrying and a legal ccw holder to a leo go a little smoother.

They the dumbest idea I have ever seen. They should be outlawed they are so stupid and potentially dangerous, not to mention a waste of $money.

The media and prosecution tried to portray Zimmerman as a wanna-be COP vigilante. Can you imagine what would have happened if he was carrying on of these badges?

I wouldn't want to be accused of impersonating a LEO.

I know the badges are clearly marked, but no one looks closely at those. They see a badge and think "cop."

Just say no.

Not to pile on, but please no. This kind of foolishness plays right into the negative stereotypes of CCL holders.

Why add to the hate we already have to deal with?
It would just be validating the "power trip" accusations that the antis like to use.

It's a shortcut to getting charged with false personation of a peace officer. If someone sees it an assumes you're the police and you encounter the real police, you will get charged. Not a good idea.

My Utah class covered that these are specifically prohibited under Utah law. I would guess you could be accused of impersonating a LEO in many states if you wore one of these.

When I first saw those, for a moment I thought "hey that's pretty neat." Then my brain kicked in. Definitely NO. I could see carrying one of those going so very wrong.

If you buy one your right to carry should be revoked!

CCW Badges to me, scream, "I wanna be da police".

The DSM banner, created by a retired LEO primarily for off-duty LEO and security, created this one for ccw permit holders. I took a look at the video, which made some sense. It ain't pretty, but it is better than being dropped asap by the responding officer...

CCW badges are also illegal in some states... I think they are a bad idea as well.

As a sworn LEO, I would highly advise against this at all costs. Impersonation laws, wannabe label, Zimmerman case, etc. It would not end well.

If you really want one, put it in a frame and hang it on the wall in your study or wherever you keep your trophies and treasured items. DON'T ever take it out on the street. At best it gains you no respect or consideration from LEOs, at worst it will get you jail time.

HORRIBLE idea.

While we're all concerned about ILCS as far as concealed carry goes, it would behoove us to look at the Criminal Code And what it says about "false personation."

Gee, guys. How about a simple, "not a good idea" and stating why. Sheesh, talk about piling on a new guy who may be seeing some of these things for the first time.

I'm embarrassed for our ambassadorship - let's lighten up and be more generous with new members.

I think the banner is a horrible idea also. What prevents someone with nefarious intents from wearing one while blasting away and then running away?

As stated, impersonating a LEO is illegal. Whether you mean to or not, having a badge in your wallet could give that impression.

The point of concealed carry is no one knows you are armed. I appreciate the enthusiasm, but a badge that could be seen by anyone you open your wallet in front of is not a good idea. :)

(720 ILCS 5/17-2)

(d) False law enforcement badges.
(1) A person commits false law enforcement badges if he or she knowingly produces, sells, or distributes a law enforcement badge without the express written consent of the law enforcement agency represented on the badge or, in case of a reorganized or defunct law enforcement agency, its successor law enforcement agency.

(2) It is a defense to false law enforcement badges that the law enforcement badge is used or is intended to be used exclusively: (i) as a memento or in a collection or exhibit; (ii) for decorative purposes; or (iii) for a dramatic presentation, such as a theatrical, film, or television production.

While it's a stretch, we've seen them pull worse.
You will not 'rise to the occasion', you will default to your level of training - plan accordingly.

Despite their rallying around us at election time, honoring only 8 hours of Illinois' 40+ hour law enforcement class towards a 16 hour requirement shows the contempt that our elected officials hold us in.
