    First Time Pulled Over While Carrying

    I was pulled over yesterday by a NY State Trooper for a brake light that was out. After the officer told me why he stopped me, I informed him (with hands at 10 and 2) that I was a licensed concealed carry permit holder and I was in fact carrying. He asked me where it was and I told him on my left side. I keep my wallet and my permit separate and when he asked if it was in my wallet, I told him it was in my left front pocket. When asked if he wanted to see it he replied no. That was it. No other gun conversation. I guess he felt that if I was forthright about it, there was no need to confirm I had a permit. All in all a boring scenerio, which I am not complaining about. Others might say I shouldn't have notified him, but I feel that if I was an officer, I would want to know ahead of time. Just my thoughts.

  3. In Nc your required to disclose that info. if stopped by a law officer.That don't seem to like it if they find out themselves?

    A gun is like viagra, always there when you need it in a pinch.

    Here in TN, your "Handgun Carry Permit" number is the exact same number as your drivers license, so the cop kwow's just from your license plate wether or not your a permit holder before he/she pulls you over if your in your own vehicle, or he/she knows when they call in your drivers license number to NCIC during the standard process of issuing you a ticket, etc. There is no law here that says you have a duty to inform, etc. So, if they do not ask, you do not have to tell....LOL...sort of like the "Don't ask don't tell policy" in the military,,HaHa

  6. Yeah NY being so crazy about gun laws still makes me shocked we don't have to notify the police. I have not been pulled over yet, but I would inform them out of respect. Why make a big deal over something minor. Good to hear the trooper was professional and didn't go all Ohio on you. We NYers know how uptight they can be, especially after that shooting last year with the cab.

    Wow...hard to believe that in NY they wouldn't want to confirm you had a permit by at least looking at it. Of course I guess he hadn'seen your handgun either and may have figure out of sight out of mind.

    Just to clarify, in TN they can't tell if the driver has a HCP by running your license plate. No HCP info is attached to your license plate number. Now they can take the name from the license plate information, run that name and see if that person has a HCP. But nothing says the registered owner is the one driving the vehicle or like with my son's truck it is in his and my name. I have a HCP, he doesn't. When I used to dispatch we didn't routinely run the information we got of license plate for DL/HCP information because as said before, that doesn't mean it is who is driving. We usually waited for the officer to call in the DL number. Of course many times he may not do that, just issue a verbal warning and never know if the person had a HCP or not unless they brought it up.

  10. Out of curiosity, what part of New York was this? Right outside NYC, upstate, etc... I would imagine that the more rural parts would get different reactions than right outside NYC.

    I was in Ulster County (Highland) and was going towards Poughkeepsie (Dutchess County).
