The law for Philly says you cannot carry a gun on public streets UNLESS you have a permit, so I don't think these cops were in the wrong for stopping this man to begin with. And I don't even think it was wrong for them to pull a gun on him just to ensure their own safety. I do think that their first question should have been "Do you have a permit for that firearm?" But it was a barrage of abusive words that made this go to a level it didn't need to.

It ain't legal to drive without a drives licence but cops don't routinely pull over every driver they see! A cop should have legit reason to suspect wrong doing. Not your a suspect just becuase!

Well they did because the laws in their city require you to have a permit to carry a weapon on public streets, so being that he was on a public street and displaying his firearm they had every legal right to stop him, but only to verify he had a permit under their own law.

In FL you can get gun drawn on you just because they feel like to because of the concealed weapons laws give all law enforcement a reason to suspect any person the encounter may be armed.

Sounds as if your guilty until proven innocent then maybe still guilty after proven innocent!

It means that police officers can treat you that way for sure.
