This morning I had to go through a roadblock. I was a little nervous because I didn't really know what to expect. I got my license, insurance card, and concealed carry permit ready. When I pulled up the officer said that they were checking licenses, I handed my licenses over and said good morning to him. He walked to the back of the car, checked my tag, walked back up, handed me my licenses back, and told me to have a good day. It was a really positive experience.

To all those LEO's out there, thanks for keeping us safe.

Glad it went smoothly for you. Guess it's natural to be a little nervous, especially the first time. I know it was for me.

Glad it went good, OP!

Off topic: Police run roadblocks in your state to make sure you've got a driver's license? Seriously?

It could be that they may have been looking for someone and used that as a cover. I don't ask questions.

Road Block? Looking for Bank Robbers? International Terrorists? Or the usual CASH COW of seeing that you have Insurance.... Got to LOVE AMERIKA ! ( Sorry being a TAX COLLECTOR is NOT POLICE WORK in my book)

Welcome to the south. Come see us in FL and try US 301. Most of those cities make their budget on tickets. We still have billboards advertising Speed Traps. The most famous, Waldo, had their entire police department disbanded.

Road blocks, ticket quotas been around aloooooong time. Out of all my cop friends could never get them to admit officialy that they existed. That's Officially. OP I've been stopped a few times while carrying never been an issue. If anything I was cut a little slack because I was carrying.

Here in Illinois, they do that sometimes looking for DUI's... Like on holiday weekends and such... I don't drink so I don't worry about it

Ah, Waldo! Heard about that speed trap town years ago. Made it through a couple times in April no problems, though I knew about the rep there. Another one where I did get caught years ago was South Bay in Palm Beach County. Speed limit goes from 50 then to 40 then to 30 in about a 100 yards! Used to drive through South Bay 5-6 times a year. Only got me once!

Glad you're in a no duty to inform officer state. Had that happened in CA, I would have had to have told them which probably would not lead to anything. I did have a LEO encounter about 4 months ago and informed the officer who thanked me and we went on with other business....

I have no problem telling any LEO that I am licensed and have a loaded firearm in my vehicle. My experience has taught me that many police officers are very pro 2A and because of their experiences on their job can tell a good guy from a bad guy. I don't look or act like a bad guy.

Required or not, I agree with informing them in most if not all circumstances...

yeah my buddies were coming back from trap shooting on a Sunday morning about 11:00am. There were 6 of them in a Suburban and got pulled over.....since Ohio is a "must inform" state the Leo get 6 drivers licenses and 6 chls stuck out the window.....:smile: He looks at all of it and says " Ok can you guys slow down a little...have a good day!" LMAO....

It is a great attitude builder. Have been stopped a few times over the years & always advise first thing. Always goes well & ends with a thank you from the LEO as they all have been pro 2A.

Even though it still raises the blood pressure a few bars when getting stopped for any reason, just normal. Glad you made it through it.

So CA is a must inform state? Doesn't make much sense seeing as how guns aren't allowed in CA.

Errr...yeah... aaah... well... there are guns here and there are places even stricter than CA. At least twelve states have a duty to inform.

My state has duty to inform too. But we are actually allowed to own and carry guns. OC, CC or otherwise. I'd put CA up there in the top 5 for strict gun laws. DC, NY, CA, IL
