Thread: How Do You Feel About Notifying LEO That You're Carrying

  1. Here in Oklahoma it is the law to notify. I will certainly comply with the law. As a firefighter, I work hand in hand with LEO's on many situations. I would have to say that 90% are decent human beings just trying to do their job and make it back home to their families. I enjoy having the right to carry, and don't want to cause a situation that would compromise that right. Bottom line.....do the right thing, obey the law.

    I have no idea if i would inform the officer right away when pulled over. I haven't had to make that decision yet. I would probably get out my permit when i got my license out before he even go to my car, but not sure if i would hand it to him right off the bat or not. That being said, if asked to get out of the vehicle, i would inform him at that point before setting foot out of the car. If i'm in the car seated he is not going to notice it and over react. The second i stand up, that may be a possibility, and i would tell him before he got the chance to find it on his own.

    ...unless you're dealing with the Canton, Ohio PD. In THAT case he'll PREVENT you from notifying, THEN threaten to murder you, THEN arrest you for not doing what he prevented you from doing.

    Notification serves no good purpose at all. The recent despicable acts of Officer Harless of the Canton PD will hopefully be the stake through the heart of mandatory notification in Ohio.

    I saw that video of the Canton OH fiasco. The officer definitely was WRONG in the way he acted, and I can't say that strongly enough.

    That being said, there is not a doubt it my mind that there was ample opportunity at numerous times for the driver to inform either the officer searching the car, or the officer out of the car.

    In NC it is the LAW to inform the nice LEO that you have a permit and are carrying.

    I have only had one occasion to have to do it once since I got my permit and the acknowledgement set off a minor panic "reaction" in the Officer who stopped me. (His "back up", whom the first Officer called in to assist, was much more "cool" about it.)

    You don't inform.... you can lose your permit. End of story. No sence letting the Government "beat us up" concering our "Rights" more than absolutely necessary.

    Clue: Our "permits" and Drivers License have the same number. You know damn well they are linked at DMV!

    How do I feel about it? I would rather just keep it to my self.

  9. +1 with Pinnacle Safety and Rich M! Don't ask, don't tell - that's my state law and my personal preference.

    And hopefully Officer Harless will be almost singlehandedly responsible for Ohio law to be the same.

    Otherwise people in OH might have to resort to wearing CCW Badges.
