Matt Powers was driving his normal route in Altoona, Pennsylvania when he was unexpectedly pulled over with no idea what he had done wrong. When the officer got out of his car and approached Matt's vehicle and made a simple request Matt completely disregarded his request and instead answered with one chilling word.

The incident took place when Matt was on his normal route and got pulled over wby an Altoona police officer. Matt waited until the officer came to his door.

What the officer didn't know was that Matt had something in his car that would instantly flip the situation on its head.

The officer asked Matt for his license, registration, and insurance card like any normal stop. That's when Matt revealed to officer what he had in his car.

Matt informed the officer that he couldn't comply with the officer's request because he had a loaded handgun where he was keeping his papers.

As any concealed carry holder knows it can be very difficult letting an officer know that you are carrying a firearm. The situation inevitably becomes more tense when a loaded gun is involved.

Matt made sure to share a post of the encounter and it has gone completely viral.

"He approached the driver’s side and asked if I knew why he stopped me and I said I did not," Matt's post to Facebook read. "He said my registration expired June 30 of 2016. He asked to see my drivers license, registration, and insurance card."

Rather than complying right away with the officer's request Matt let the officer know what he had in his car.

"As I kept my hands firmly locked at 10 and 2 on the steering wheel I immediately stated…..For your safety and mine, sir, I would like to inform you that I am a legally armed citizen. I have a concealed carry permit in my wallet," Matt's post explained.

Then in order to handle the situation responsibly Matt informed the officer, "Please be careful, there is a round in the chamber, the thumb safety is on, and there’s an extra magazine with it."

The officer then told Matt to keep his hands on the wheel. Then Matt made the responsible move of allowing the officer to assume possession of the firearm and offered to get out of the vehicle while the officer retrieved the pistol.

Matt even offered to allow the officer to search him for any more weapons.

The officer ended up giving Matt a warning ticket and advised him to get his registration up to date.

It just goes to show that there's a right way and a wrong way to handle a situation with a police office when firearms are involved. If you handle it like Matt did in a responsible way then things will be fine. It's only when you do something wrong that things turn south. That's something that the BLM should try to understand. There are always going to be consequences for your actions, the outcome just depends on what actions you chose to take.

Make sure to share this story on Facebook and show the right way to deal with gun.
