    Pulled over by Police today and.....

    Side note: There is not a law in Oregon saying you have to inform the officer that you have CHL.

    So I was driving and the light turned yellow so I gunned it through it and there happened to be an undercover cop I passed and he pulled me over.

    (this is a summarization of our convo)
    Came up to the window and said
    Officer: It's guys like you that make me drive cars like that. Did you fly by me just to make it through the light?
    Me:I guess.
    Officer: Do you have your driver's license?
    I gave him my driver's license, insurance and registration.
    Officer: Do you have a bad driving record?
    Me: Not lately.
    Officer: Do you have a parole officer?
    Me: No?

    He goes and checks my license and then comes back to the window

    Officer: Do you have a gun in the car?
    Me: Yes I do it's on my side
    Officer: You need to tell us that you have gun in the car, I didn't know you had a CHL, it would have made me less jumpy.
    Me: Sorry, haven't been pulled over since I got my CHL.
    Officer: Since you have a CHL you can't be that bad of a guy.

    Hands me my license/insurance/registration back

    Officer: I don't want to see you drive like that again, you will be on my black book to watch out for.
    Me: I appreciate it officer

    Shook his hand and I was off.

    So my CHL was a get out of jail free card today.

    sounds to me you both handled it well; he needs to brush up on the need to inform

    In TN your HCP is tied directly to your DL. If they run the DL they know. I believe there are various states that do this.

    I've lived in Oregon for a little over 13 years and thought that was how people were taught to deal with yellow lights here...
    Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

    If you look at your CCW or at least mine does it has your DL # is on it. It also is through the D. M. V. here in North Carolina so when they run your tag it will show up.

    Hm.

    Officer: Do you have a gun in the car?
    Me: Yes I do it's on my side
    Officer: You need to tell us that you have gun in the car, I didn't know you had a CHL, it would have made me less jumpy.
    Someone: And what is the specific Oregon statute that requires notification? So far as I know, citizens who do not proactively notify are not criminalized in Oregon like they are in some states.

    Our class instructor recommended that you notify the officer that you have a CHL even if you are not carrying. It is required if you are carrying, but recommended even if not.
    Knowing is half the battle.

    I thought it was...

    Green = go
    Red = stop
    Yellow = go faster
