I am on the record saying that those stupid Concealed Carry Badges are a bad idea. Plus I hate to be carrying unnecessary crap and add to the EDC I already have. But this particular individual although he might be right on the badge not being the same as the ones local LEOs carry, it looks similar to some badges from out-of-state agencies. And maybe you can skate on that particular item since it is not an exact copy of a real badge, but stating that you are carrying one so people think you might be a LEO and not get tagged for accidental exposure is adding crap to the pile and asking for a prosecutor to nail your ass to the floorboards. That you might be found not-guilty in a trial is not important, the issue as Jon Guttmacher says, why be Defendant Zero and test the law?
843.085 Unlawful use of badges or other indicia of authority.—(1) It is unlawful for any person, unless appointed by the Governor pursuant to chapter 354, authorized by the appropriate agency, or displayed in a closed or mounted case as a collection or exhibit, to wear or display any authorized indicia of authority, including any badge, insignia, emblem, identification card, or uniform, or any colorable imitation thereof, of any federal, state, county, or municipal law enforcement agency, or other criminal justice agency as defined in s. 943.045, with the intent to mislead or cause another person to believe that he or she is a member of that agency or is authorized to display or wear such item.
