    Question non-resident concealed carry permits showing up during a traffic stop

    I have seen discussions about concealed carry permits showing up during a traffic stop for instance when your driver's license is run by a LEO. Does anyone know whether this happens if you have non-resident concealed carry permits? For example, I have a non-resident CCW for Nevada and if I get stopped in California (that where I'm from) does the NV non-resident CCW show up if the CA LEO runs my driver's license? A second question would be if I am driving in Nevada and get pulled over my a NV LEO, does my NV non-resident CCW license show up when a LEO runs my CA driver's license?

    It all depends on what your state attaches to the info and also what the specific department gets when they run a license. There is no one answer for this. Each state is different.

    In Iowa your drivers license and your permit are completely seperate. Unless you tell them, they wont know.

    In Florida I believe they don't know by running my plate. As stated each state is different.

    Not sure about other states but here in colorado there is a question on it being released for law enforcement on the permit application.... I answered no so if my license gets ran nothing pops up.

    Reason... I listened to the police radio via internet and can get address and name and if they have a ccw during traffic stops... criminal can too and it would be safe to assume if you have a ccw permit you have a handgun that could be stolen.

    I would make sure I'm familiar with the laws of any state that recognizes my permit and comply with the laws when stopped. In Texas, I'm required to notify the LEO that I have a permit and that I'm carrying. It probably can't hurt to do that in any situation, especially if for some reason, you're not sure. The best way to inform is to say to the LEO: "Officer, I have a permit to carry a concealed handgun, and the weapon is currently [indicate the location]. Please tell me how you want me to proceed."

    A for the most part answer: No, it usually will not.
    The same questions for an out of state permit: I can't believe it ever would show up in another state's computer.

    I don't have an answer for the op's question, but in Virginia, I know from experience that it will show up when the LEO runs your drivers license.

    I would think it quite unlikely your out of state permit will show up attached to your DL.

    Now when in the state of your non-resident permit, it's possible that their lookup with access the DL database and their own, based on your name. Maybe.

    As noted above, just be sure you know and follow the notification requirements of wherever you come into contact with LEO.

    To the best of my knowledge, a non-resident permit will not show up on a license check. Even states who link a resident permit to a resident drivers license have no way of linking the info to another states drivers license.

    Yep.

    And no matter where it is .... if you are armed, it's not a bad idea to tell him while keeping hands on the wheel. If he's smart, he's assuming everyone is armed and watching hands (no body get's shot by a face held weapon) and if yours go for a wallett and it's near a weapon and he catches sight of it .... things could go south fast.

    Here in Arkansas, it only shows an AR. resident.

    If you are out of state, it will not show up.

    To some degree it varies from PD to PD and the equipment / software they use.

    In the vast majority (including the SP) Virginia issued will come up on both the owner of the vehicle when the plate is run and the operator's driver license when it is run.

    OTOH, out-of-state issued do not normally.
