Could someone refresh my memory as to whether this is fact. Is there a " duty to inform" to present your CCW permit If there is any interaction between you an a LEO even if you presently are not carrying an included not having a weapon in you vehicle if it's a traffic stop.
If you are not carrying there is no need to present your permit.

I would say it depends on your state. In North Carolina, you're not required to notify if you don't have a gun on your person or in your car.

In Ohio LEO say its just a common courtesy to tell them when your not carrying
Duty to inform "when asked" in Illinois... If you're unarmed, there's no reason to tell... If I'm stopped, I'm going to let them know up front I'm licensed then let them know I'm armed. All the while with my hands on the wheel in plain sight..
When I had my class in Ohio (2004) they told us to inform when carrying or not.

If an officer runs your DL, and it comes back that you are licensed to carry, it may make him nervous that you didn't say anything. I see no reason why you would not want to tell him up front.

I bet you can find lots of discussion on this.
I do not know why one would not voluntarily present it with your drivers license - even if you are not carrying. Chances are he already has been given the information about your permit to carry before leaving his car. Failure to show it only ads to his uncertainty and wariness about you. He does not see the halo hanging over your head. It is up to you at the very earliest to demonstrate that you are not a threat. Doing everything right and with politeness may also get you out of a ticket. Has for me.
