    Is it required to tell an officer when stopped that you have CCP?

    Depends what State you live in and what their requirements are. In NC, YES, you must identify your a CWP holder if the officer identifies him/her self as a LEO.

    as noted it all depends on which state the incident takes place in, do a forum search there are many threads on this topic

    Check you state laws, if they don't require it don't tell. But if you are ever asked don't lie.

    But I feel like you should know this if you're carrying....

    In PA if you have a pulse, $50 and a clean record you get the permit. Whether you know which end of the gun to hold matters not. If you're carrying anywhere it is YOUR responsibility to know the laws of the jurisdiction you're in. Pleading ignorance isn't an option especially concerning carrying a firearm. FWIW, I'm telling the LEO even if I don't have to.

    Could be a non carrier coming here to ask a question, could be a troll, could be an irresponsible gun owner. Who knows, it's amazing what judgment comes from one sentence...

    In WA it is not required, but we must answer truthfully if asked.

    As an act of good faith, I would always disclose a firearm to LE if I am stopped. I do not currently CC, but I am applying for my permit. If the cop turns out to be a douche, than so be it. But I will act responsibly at all times.

    We have rights, but also responsibilities.

    if the cop is a douche and many of them are, you could find your self being harassed, arrested or at the worst dead, why bring the subject up unless it is required by law?
