Depends on how the LEO reacts. Here in GA about two years ago a licensed carrier, after informing an LEO that he was armed, was told to step out of the car and the LEO pulled his weapon, pointed at the guy's head, disarmed him, and searched his car. Video here: Cobb Co. GA Traffic Stop - YouTube
No sound, but the dude was about 5 pounds away from a .40 through his brain. If you are ADD start watching at 2:45.
As a result of this civil rights fiasco, Cobb county officers were all trained on how to deal with lawful carries. Part of that training, I assume, is to not draw a weapon and flush the constitution down the toilet.
There are still a lot of places where LEO's are not properly trained in the law. Their response may render any of your intentions moot.
Not LEO bashing. Just saying sometimes events are beyond our control.
EDIT: I know this is not a MWAG call, but just the same - officer dealing with a legally armed individual.
How long does it take full time to get through law school? And you expect every officer to know every law for their jurisdiction off the top of their head?
Dunno. There's a thread on another form that's about 50 pages long. Basically a parade of horribles - training that scared the bejeezus out of young rookies (give of civvie an inch they will kill you), lack of knowledge of carry laws, etc. Lots of things righted after this wrong.
Point is I've yet to be stopped by an officer when carrying, and I've heard plenty of good things from many that have been. But I will be respectful and guarded. Ya never know if the officer is in great fear when the knowledge of a weapon comes into play, and I'd do my best to get a read.
Believe it or not on larger departments you will have officers that specialize in certain things much like doctors do. I would not go to a proctologist to deal with an ear infection. I can generally pick and choose on stuff like that. Cops don't have that luxury. When a MWAG call come in should the alcohol enforcement specialist and the commercial vehicle inspector ignore the call and wait for the guy from the firearms task force to come and handle it? If you pull up at holiday sobriety check point who do you think they staffing those with? It is going to be alcohol, drug, and traffic guys. Us folks that legally carry are really a very tiny segment of our population. And we are generally a fairly law abiding group as well so any particular officer will theoretically have fewer contacts with us than the average citizen.
I don't expect every officer to know everything. What I do expect them to know is who to call to find out.
Licensed professional have a standard and duty of care. Legally, not Meeting that duty of care that results in Damage results in liability. Police officers have a duty to know the law. If they don't remember a traffic infraction the damages are low. If they make a false arrest because they don't know felony laws than damages are higher. Police officers should know the law, specifically when it comes to arrestable offenses.
ETA: And also, it is not always a case of the officer not knowing the law. If you Sixto and I were standing side by side at the flag pole at my sons school, two of us are breaking the law. Until the officer gets there and goes through everyone's ID's how is that officer supposed to know who it is that is breaking the law there?
