Pistol seized question in CT

Politely intended - you did just about everything wrong that you could possibly do.

I'm not going to get into details here - I'll let others break it down for you.

Highly recommend that you say no more and contact an attorney.

welcome, I hope you will take the suggestion to cease further discussion on this public posted forum where all can see and seek legal advice.

Further, from your description of your encounter, I wish to say I am glad there was no physical or deadly force for your son to witness, only apparent sticks and stones verbal exhanges ~ still unfortunately requiring a conversation to explain the situation.

best of luck in your future encounters.
