    I know in ohio you have to let an officer know that you have your chl and are carrying. What if you are a passenger, do the same rules apply?

    If you as a passenger are asked for identification, I think you must advise them. Oh, and welcome to the DC Forum from Delaware!

    Per the AG in NC if you are a passenger in a vehicle that is stopped and or approached you are required to notify the officer upon his approach. You have too choices, either tell the driver to tell the officer you have a permit and handgun or tell the driver you need to speak to the officer as soon as he arrives at the vehicle.

    One point on this worth considering: It seems like in general an armed passenger might be more of a potential threat than the driver, yet in many states it is only the driver that has to tell if he/she is armed. Don't get me wrong, I don't go around saying that people with a CHL can't be trusted, I'm just discussing how the law addresses this.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    yep, depending on state, passengers may be under different regulation than the driver, or owner of the vehicle

    example: Texas allows car carry w/o CHL by owner of vehicle or vehicle under the carrier's control--if passenger is not owner they can be in hot water
    note: I don't agree with this provision of our UCW law

    If a licensee is the driver or an occupant of a motor vehicle that is stopped as the result of a traffic stop or a stop for another law enforcement purpose and if the licensee is transporting or has a loaded handgun in the motor vehicle at that time, the licensee shall promptly inform any law enforcement officer who approaches the vehicle while stopped that the licensee has been issued a license or temporary emergency license to carry a concealed handgun and that the licensee currently possesses or has a loaded handgun;
