A person shall not be convicted of a violation of this section if the person produces at the personís trial a permit to carry weapons which was valid at the time of the alleged offense and which would have brought the personís conduct within this exception if the permit had been produced at the time of the alleged offense."
The difference may be his conduct though. The difference between "refusing" to show the permit and just not having it.
Once I was way out in the middle nowhere, with nothing around for miles. The biggest business in the whole county seemed to be a Super Walmart that was open 24 hours. I stopped there because there wasn't anything else around. I went inside and they had county police officers in uniform working security there.
