Another good video, thanks!
Now an ethical question...
Say you live in a state that has OC except in limited areas, you are OC'ing at the time of the traffic stop [in a no OC area] and the officer asks you to get out of the car. Technically the officer is putting you in violation of the law.
I've heard of stranger citations being issued.
Thanks for posting the link. Good video and info to have.
I think I learned from it not to say the G word.
Good info but a little misinformation as well. He stated that AZ is a must notify state. AZ is NOT a must notify state, even though notification might be a good idea, it is not required by our state law.
Absolutely agree with nn. If I learned anything it is NOT to say the "G" word. The rest of the video, IMO, is absolute common sense even if there are forum members who have to have it their way when it comes to their famous "constitutional rights". I understand their point of view to a point but I also understand that this other person you are interracting with is an LEO who wants to be as safe as you are and he does not know you at all and pulled you over for something you either did or he believes you did that violates some law or accepted practice on the road. He is in control, IMO, no matter how innocent you think you are and how wrong you think he was. I just do not get this uncalled for "high and mighty" attitude that I have seen written on this forum on occasion.
Am I the only one who gets asked, "do you have any weapons on you or in the car that I should know about?" Even before the request for lic & reg it is the first thing out of the LEO's mouth.
Well done! And good post, too.
This is the same information I have been teaching in my classes since we started. The words "I have a gun", should never come out of ones mouth whether at a traffic stop or at the airport when declaring things that are in your luggage or any time else for that matter.
This stuff really is common sense when you sit and thing about it for a minute or two.
We are Not required to inform LEO we have a weapon UNLESS ASKED.
A couple months ago I got a speeding ticket. I was carrying. Trooper didn't ask , I didn't tell :wink:
This weekend was the first time that I have been pulled over since I received my CHL last year. I was driving my Mom in her S-Class Mercedes, the limit had just dropped from 70 to 60, & I was slowing down, but still speeding. The car doesn't have a front license plate (a stupid law IMO.) When the Highway Patrol officer asked for my license, I gave him my CHL as required in Texas. He asked who owned the car & my Mom spoke up. I could tell pretty quickly that I wasn't going to get a ticket because he didn't ask for proof of insurance. He took my licenses I said he was going to check for warrants. He came back with the warning for speeding & no front plate along with my licenses. No comments were made about whether or not I had a firearm by any of us.
