    Stop wondering and follow the laws of your state. You should have learned this in your concealed carry class.

    My son-in-law was stopped 2 weeks ago. The officer while talking to him said, "that he saw by his record that he had a motorcycle license, no prior tickets, and that he had a concealed carry license." Son-in-law answered that the CCW license was his wife's. The officer answered "good for her". This CCW information was in the computer when the officer ran the car license. Our state is Va.

    If my daughter were in the car, would he have asked her "if she was carrying?" Anyway, the officer, will already know that the car owner(s) could be carrying.

    Not in every state, it varies state to state.

    Some, not all states tie your DL and your CWP together, one of such that does is VA.

    We did a poll thread on this a month ago. See here. Almost 80% of USA Carry respondents advise to not disclose unless the law in that state requires disclosure.

    You are required to notify in 10 states. They are Alaska,Arkansas,Louisiana,Michigan,Nebraska,North Carolina,Ohio,Oklahoma,South Carolina and Texas.

    If I'm not in one of those 10 states, I do not notify the LEO. If asked directly, I give an honest answer.

    I'm taking a big assumption you are from NC because of your screen name. You really should post what state you are talking about when asking legal questions. The link I'm giving you is a brief synopsis of the handgun laws in NC: http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/northcarolina.pdf

    This next link is the actual law concerning firearms in NC as of Aug 2013: http://www.ncsheriffs.org/documents/...rms%20Laws.pdf

    Read them, know them, obey them if you wish to remain law-abiding. In NC you are required to notify LE if you are detained. http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/EnactedL...14-415.11.html

    If you choose to go to any other state that recognizes your NC permit/license, then do similar research. Cuz, Deputy Barney Fife ain't too concerned whether you actually know the law or not.

    During a traffic stop I'm not required by law to disclose. However, when the officer runs my drivers license it will show that I have a CC permit. Therefore, I would disclose as soon as he / she came up to my vehicle.

    Waste of space and words - read and follow the laws in your state or wherever you are.

  11. Thanks for this thread. I just finished the Personal Protection in the Home course yesterday and we talked about this subject in depth. Good to read more about it though.
