    I have to notify him if I'm CCW. Aside from other issues, my answer will be a respectful "no", and it's a true answer, I'm not a criminal-type, I don't have any record or tainted background. Knowing I'm squeaky clean, I don't approve of a search of my vehicle without a warrant. So far, I've never been asked.

    It's fair enough to ask such a question. It's fair enough to not answer it beyond a "no" (which is true enough, as I'm not a criminal). The 5A is there for a purpose. If something unlawful is found during the investigation of me/mine, good for him/her. Makes no sense to me to answer such open-ended probes such as that.

    "Do you have anything that I should know about?" Phishing?

    "What kind of question is that, officer? Would you care to be more specific? Do you mean do I have anything illegal? NO. Do I have a firearm? Yes, and a permit to go with it. Anything else?"

    Not all police officers are your "enemy". Some of us are actually pretty decent people, hard to believe huh?

    I have issues with LEO now days due to their action . However I have no way of knowing the good from the political agenda ones on a traffic stop or chance encounter.
    Even though the law in my state says I am not required to inform them unless they ask. I will inform the officer. How he/she chooses to react in their business.
    So far I have had no negative reactions. I did have one ask me why I felt the need to carry a weapon. Informed him that I spent a lot of time in Milwaukee.
    To more question were ask nor was the weapon brought up again.

    I've asked that question on most of the car, and pedestrian stops I've made. "You have anything I should know about?", or "Anything else I should know about?" This is NOT a fishing expedition. It's a plain question... As long as were having the face to face I want to know who you are. Do you have a warrant?, are you armed?... Have you been drinking?. I use the question to give the individual the chance to get in front of any issues that may arise. If I stopped a person for ohhhh fitting a specific description... and he admits to having had two beers. His honesty would go a long way in how I dispose of the situation. Honesty will usually get you a long way with a cop. Now having said that a Law Enforcement Officer will probably use your honesty against you if he can.

    The difficult part is being able to differ between a LEO and a policeman.

    I've only been stopped once in the last 14 yrs. since I got my CCP. The officer's first words were, "do you have anything on you that can hurt me?" I told him I was carrying concealed and asked if he wanted to see my permit. He asked me where my gun was. I told him it was in my pocket. He told me to keep my hands in sight and said not to bother digging out my wallet. He said he stopped me because I had a tail light out and to get it taken care of and to have a nice day. I'm probably naive to think they all go that way.

    I haven't been stopped in years, but never has an LEO asked me anything like other than, "Do you know why I stopped you?" Don't think I want to get stopped again just to see how, evidently, the times have changed. BUt if so, I don't think I'd appreciate a barrage of questions that had nothing to do with my traffic violation.

    ever heard of probable cause? anything you say other than 'no' comes with the risk of giving an officer probable cause. putting Secret Spuk's example aside (any officer will likely know you've had a drink), anything you say can give them legal reason to search you and/or your car. so don't waste your time going through that experience and tell them 'no,' unless of course you are legally obligated otherwise. that's my slightly educated opinion.

    His drinking example was valid. A coherent "Yes, officer, I have had two beers" will help diffuse probable cause. "Yeah, I hadda few", otoh will enhance it.

    If, god forbid, I ever get pulled over again, I'll say this, just for you guys. But lets hope it doesn't happen, if my insurance gets any higher, I'm going to have to sell my guns

    Please don't do it in Alabama, in my current employment it would create a few long days for me and I don't get paid overtime
