    Showing LEO permit when stopped in Pennsylvania

    In PA do you have to show the LEO your permit if you are carrying and get stopped for a traffic violation. I am sure I can find the info somewhere on here I am just not that good at searching. Thanks in advance.

    No....PA does not require you to notify LEO that you are carrying.

    Post PA law on duty to inform/duty to show LTCF

    Pennsylvania does not have a "duty to inform". However, 18 Pa.C.S. 6122(a) provides:
    When carrying a firearm concealed on or about one's person or in a vehicle, an individual licensed to carry a firearm shall, upon lawful demand of a law enforcement officer, produce the license for inspection. Failure to produce such license either at the time of arrest or at the preliminary hearing shall create a rebuttable presumption of nonlicensure.
    Subsection (b) of that section contains a similar requirement for producing evidence of exemption from the licensing requirement.
