Would a CCW Permit = Probable Cause?
Hypothetically, let's say you were traveling through a state like NY, NJ, MD, or IL. Doesn't matter if you have your weapon with you (if you do, you're following FOPA-which could still get you in trouble in NY/NJ)
You're pulled over, police look up your details and see that you're a CCW permit holder from another state (From what I've read, this is possible... dependent on the state). (Actually my Utah instructor stated that Utah holders must identify themselves in any state in which they are stopped. Please correct me if this is incorrect)
In any case, the police now know you're a permit holder. Is this enough Probable Cause to search your car? Remember, you're in a state where they would care very much...
