    My question is, "If somebody tells a cop they're carrying a gun out of 'respect', do they tell OTHER people out of 'respect'?"

    If you DON'T tell the girl at the cash register at McDonald's does that mean you have CONTEMPT for her?

    When they run my drivers license it will show that I have a CCP so I would tell them up front.

    Cops in my state don't have a clue as to who is carrying.
    With no permit system in place, for open or concealed carry, there is no ready database to find that info.
    If stopped, I say nothing about a gun, period.
    If I were removed from my car, I would still say nothing until my weapon is "found".
    I have been stopped once since 1992 so I'm not really all that worried!

    I am not sure but I would think an actual BG would lie to the LEO, if asked. Or pull his weapon and start shooting.
    But still if I was LEO I would ask everyone I pulled over.
    I agree, someone has to take out the trash....

    And I would look at you, smile and say "nope!".
    I guess that I would be lying though..

    If I'm not required to notify, I wouldn't tell the officer unless he asks me to exit my vehicle and is about to frisk me or search my vehicle (assuming I even give him permission to do so).

    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

    I work as a security patrol officer and contact several people on a nightly basis including several in vehicles. I don't feel the need to ask them about weapons unless A) They were already doing something illegal when I walked up.; B) shifting around a lot and acting suspicious including putting their hands into areas that I cannot see or C) I'm getting ready to put cuffs on. After a little experience contacting people in such environments you get a pretty good intuition whether somebody's a threat or not. If I ask somebody if they have any weapons on them and they say yes, the first thing I do is ask if they have a CCW permit. If they say yes, no worry's continue to keep your hands in plain sight and we won't have a problem. If they say no, they go in cuffs immediately, police are contacted and I secure the weapon until they get there. BTW, this is all specific to concealed carry, I've never had to contact an open carrier at work although I imagine I'd be a pleasant experience and nothing would come of it. To this date nobody I've contacted that I've asked about weapons has had a CPL, they all been carrying illegally.

    Based on the suggestion of a County Sheriff LT, I will just hand them my FCWL at the same time when they ask for my license. My issue is not the firearm I carry 24/365, it is that I carry my phone and wallet in a rig called a e-Holster, which is based on a shoulder holster design. I have been Terry-stopped (including traffic) 5 times because of the rig, and was carrying concealed in 4 of them.

    All the more reason for some (or most) of us to be incredulous over you criticizing the college kid doing something for the cause of freedom while implying that he should've done nothing and just complied. What else might the dismissive allusion to his "15 minutes of fame" mean?

    I congratulate you for escaping a commie country, but I'll thank you not to encourage our slowly-awakening citizenry to lay down and go back to sleep, and have no idea how someone who knows how completely ever-expanding and intrusive government can destroy freedoms would view that video as the victim being some kind of abusive instigator towards the cops.

    It's just weird.

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...
