    Default License Check

    I live in North Carolina and right after I received my concealed carry permit I encountered a routine driver's license check while on my way to Church on Sunday morning. I remembered from my class that when approached by a LEO by law I had to inform the officer I have a ccp and where my weapon is located. I handed my license to the officer and informed him that I had a concealed carry permit and where my weapon was located. He was OK with it and did not act like it bothered him at all. That made me feel better, because I was a little nervous not knowing how he was going to react.

    Most cops are good & decent people.
    But every once in a while you might encounter one of those dreaded 'egomaniacal pricks' with badges out there.
    Unfortunately there are a few bad apples within every profession.

    What's a routine drivers license check? You got pulled over or they had check points?

    If its anything like here in Georgia you've got the right idea. Think sobriety checkpoint. They stop every passing car and check lisc. and registration. It was very much a shock from me after moving here from California. Now I hit 4 or 5 a year and just dont sweat it. It does do a good job of increasing the LEO return on violators and here they like to setup on residential through-ways where speed is a constant issue. It will hold the speed back a bit for a few months.

    here in NC it's a common thing .. they are looking for a number of things .. illegals, exp/no license, DUI etc ..
    i hit the checks at least 3 times a yr ..
    LoL .. the last time i went through one i had 3 rifles, 4 pistols, 2 revolvers and at least a 1000 rds of ammo .. i informed the officers that i had a CCP .. he said "do you have any firearms in the vehicle?" .. i laughed and said "a few" .. he glanced in the back seat and started laughing .. "WOW, i can see that .. have a good day" .. and away i went .. i have never had a bad experience yet with them so far .. treat them with respect and they will do the same in return ..

    In California the requirement to notify is not statewide, but determined by the Issuing Authority. The primary issuing authority is the county Sheriff or local PD Chief. I prefer to notify even though I am not required to by my issuing authority for officer safety (an my own) if pulled over. Over the years I do believe notifying has saved me a violation and made for a nice chat with a local state trooper.

    The best way to notify, at least for me is to hand my permit with drivers license and ask how to proceed.

    Ditto in Washington. No duty to inform, and I'm glad.

    Thank goodness in Washington it is illegal! As it should be. I don't care how "easy" it makes a police officer's job or how much "return" they get on violators, it should be illegal in America for police to detain a person for any length of time, for any reason, other than they have reasonable suspicion that the person has committed a crime.

    Got that right. These so called random checkpoints are just ridiculous. Continuing to desensitize the public to the fact that they can do anything they want. Just another step closer to "Totalitarianism".
