    Great LEO Encounter

    My mother in- law got in a car accident today (shes ok, the van not so much) I showed up to make sure she was ok and get the van outta the road. Two LEOs show up and start talking to the other driver. I pulled the CWL out and as they walked towards up I just said "I have a CWL, and I'm carrying at the moment" They looked at me and said. " Oh, thanks for the heads up." They worked the accident and then pulled me to the side. Asked what and how I was carrying. We then talked about them thinking concealed carry was a great thing and really does make a differance. Thats my story and I know we hear these all the time, but It's just nice to see that the LEOs in my area all support CWL.
    God Bless America!!

    Sounds like a text book case.

    Great to hear since there is a decent chance I'll be living in that area in the next year or two.

    The good "eggs" are everywhere, though they don't make the news as readily as the bad ones. Kudos to to them for seeing the good that can result from armed citizens.

    That's the way it's supposed to happen.

    I'll play devils advocate...what if it hadn't? Told you to disarm or leave the area? I'll have to go back and read the book (I'm not in OK right now)...but is one required to notify if you are not the one being stopped and just an interested party?

    I would not say "all" are in favor albeit the few that I know seem to be supportive.

    I can imagine a number of scenarios that would raise the LEOs concerns after a traffic accident. That being said, glad it turned out well.

    Question for you; why did you volunteer that information? Not that you were wrong, but, are you required to give that info. in you state?
    Reason I ask is in Kansas, that is not a requirement unless asked by LEO. Here, LEO is beginning to assume you could be carrying, and when asked you must answer truthfully.
    It appears you were trying to avoid a confrontation which can be wise, but then again would you mind explaining what was going through you mind at the time.

    That sounds like a great encounter.
    I am of the opinion that is the correct way to handle the situation regardless if you are 'required' to inform LEO. I believe it is courtesy, and will be to your benefit 99% of the time...
    SO..let's play devils advocate again...you don't say anything because you don't have to in your state....they see you 'print' as you are doing something around the scene...If I was a LEO, I would jump my alert level up real fast...bottom line...Most LEO's know we are the good guys....and so are they.

    I tell if I get pulled over and don't have to. But I would'nt have told them in this case. Glad it all went well.
