Tell...Don't Tell, Part Deux
I don't know if this should be here, or in the Law Enforcement section. A question for the LEO's among us:
I have been told that, in the event I am stopped by an officer, and I volunteer the information that I am carrying, I have provided a basis for the officer to search my car. In Virginia, the CCW information is tied to the driver's info, so the officer should already know, but by my volunteering information about the contents of my car, I have established grounds for a search. Is this true in other states, as well? Respect and courtesy aside, this would appear to be an argument for remaining silent.
