    Must notify at home ?

    If an officer of the city or state comes to your door or onto your property are you required to tell them you are armed? I am only talking about must notify states.

    I only bring this up because a cop dropped by one day to ask me if I might have seen something that had happened in the neighborhood. I assume this would be considered official and not a casual chat so it got me to thinking about it. I was in the open garage at the time. Does being on your property outside, or inside make any difference?

    Depends upon the individual state...if you must notify in a car, then I would assume you would need to notify at home (when approached 'officially').OMO

    In a must notify state I'd err on the side of catuion.

    What about a state that allows CC W/out a permit on your property?

    From my reading I would think this to be the case in Okla. Only trouble is define when it's official business. In my case I assumed it was official because he was asking about some vandalism but he never said it was official.

    I think here they would expect you to be armed on your own property,either concealed or open carry no permit required.I had a Deputy approached me in my yard,my Jeep was similar to a vehicle that was involved in a fatal car jacking about a mile from my house,I think I advised him I was armed,and that my vehicle was parked and I was the only one with a key and access to it.

    Depends on how your states notify laws read.. Some states "Must notify an officers when approached in an official capacity" etc etc..

    In SC, you may legally carry a handgun, either concealed or open, on your property. If you are ASKED FOR ID (as in a traffic stop) you must present your CWP and inform the officer you are armed.

    Not to be rude, but what part of an officer, in performance of his duty, asking about a crime being commited does not sound like "official duty"? It's not like he stopped at your door to ask to use the bathroom.
    Would you expect him to have to preceed every "official" duty with a statement: "This is official duty."

    In general, if an LEO comes to your door, it's probably for a good reaason and for official business.

    In Minnesota, as a permit holder, we are required to notify only when asked. Since it is legal to carry on your own property here without a permit, I would say no notification is necessary. The difficulty is though, they don't list case law along with the statutes.

    I don't think you HAVE to inform them in Ohio if they come to your door but it never hurts... I'm sure the LEO would appreciate if you did.

    Who cares what they appreciate?

    I'm not telling. If I tell, the cop might want me to disarm. And at that point what if the reason the cop has responded pops out of the shrubs and attacks? The cop is under no obligation to protect me.

    For my safety, I'm not telling. Let the cop worry about his safety.

    Well, YOU might. If the cop accidentally discovers your unproclaimed weapon, you might be eating some dirt and wearing chrome bracelets until he gets things sorted out.

    Well, OK then... but you're probably not going to like the outcome of that.

    An official contact is an official contact no matter where it occurs. About the only time a contact is not official is a passing hello or small talk in line at the gas station types of contacts.

    Why so jaded?

    Just cause a cop isn't there to be your friend doesn't mean he deserves any less respect. I have met some real non huggy type cops in my life but I still am respectful to any cop that comes up to me.
