Remember last week's video of the wise guy kid trying to bait the cop into arresting him for doing something not illegal -- carrying an AK-47? Well, Dallas cops might need a lesson (if the story is correct.)
But they are probably in the clear here . They certainly could have arrested him for Disorderly Conduct for waving the gun around in downtown Dallas. That's more than just carrying it. And the search after that arrest is legal so the dope charge will also stick. But there is no separate crime of "Displaying a Firearm". There is one for "Unlawfully Carrying A Firearm" but that doesn't apply here. That guy could have strolled down downtown with that weapon if he'd just done so calmly.
