United States Fourth Circuit

US v. Robinson, 14-4902

In an appeal presenting the question of whether a law enforcement officer is justified in frisking a person whom the officer has lawfully stopped and whom the officer reasonably believes to be armed, regardless of whether the person may legally be entitled to carry the firearm, the district court's denial of defendant's motion to suppress evidence is affirmed where the risk of danger to a law enforcement officer created by the forced stop of a person who is armed is not eliminated by the fact that state law authorizes persons to obtain a permit to carry a concealed firearm.
