    Thanks for all the replies (especially yours Highpower15...nice to have a response from a MN Trooper). As I said, I thought his level of caution was impressive. I would hope they are all that careful at every stop.

    Thanks again!

    Here in Michigan, our CPL's are tied to our registered vehicles (MI is a require to inform state). In the FWIW dept...

  5. In most states, CWP are private information. The laws differ from state to state, but in 99percent of cases CWP info is separate from driver info and basic background info. You have to look it up on a seperate screen (as stated by the retired Mn.St.Trooper)....
    I believe there should be a uniformed CWP regulation to minimize the confusion.
    For instance, in SC, your weapon is supposed to be stored in the glove box or console. But you cross the state line into NC, and your weapon is supposed to be visible to any approaching LEO (ie. placed on top of the console or in the other seat in plain view.)
    I can see where it might get confusing to people that travel alot...

    I believe there should be NO infringements on my inalienable right to keep and bear arms of any kind and that this particular right, being such a valued right, has written unto it the words, "... shall not be infringed."

    You can keep your permit system and regulatory bodies and continue to add bad law after bad law. (correction, each of these laws is a breach of the Constitution so I should have written, illegal law after illegal law)

  8. During a routine traffic stop, does it really matter to the driver whether or not the officer gets CPL/CCW information from dispatch or not? I just comply with whatever the state law says I have to do and don't really concern myself with whether or not the officer gets CPL/CCW information from the state/county.

ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, 100% NOTHING! Why? Because the officer has no idea who the occupants of the vehicle are.

    Now, if the officer obtains Joe Snuffy's driver's license, and finds out from the state that Joe Snuffy has a CC permit, what reason then would the officer have to treat Joe Snuffy more cautiously than before? He just obtained information from the state that said that Joe Snuffy has submitted to a background check, he's passed the background check, and if Joe Snuffy does possess a firearm, there is 99% chance that firearm is completely 100% legal. So why would the officer have any reason to be MORE cautious?
    there is 99% chance that firearm is completely 100% legal. So why would the officer have any reason to be MORE cautious? Because that ONE PERCENT could get you killed. Sort of like treating ALL guns as if they are loaded.

    He's not going to find out about that 1% through a computer check though. He's gonna find out about that 1% when that 1% pistol is pointing at his face.
