Do you need to show your driver license & gun permit when going through a road check or being pulled over by police if you are the passenger when carring concealed?
Good post. Too often, people respond to this type of question with "I think" or "IMO".If you are asked to Identify yourself you do then.
(K) A permit holder must have his permit identification card in his possession whenever he carries a concealable weapon. When carrying a concealable weapon pursuant to Article 4 of Chapter 31 of Title 23, a permit holder must inform a law enforcement officer of the fact that he is a permit holder and present the permit identification card when an officer (1) identifies himself as a law enforcement officer and (2) requests identification or a driver’s license from a permit holder. A permit holder immediately must report the loss or theft of a permit identification card to SLED headquarters. A person who violates the provisions of this subsection is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined twenty five dollars.
Note the "AND" between (1) and (2)... so it must be both. He ID's himself as a LEO AND requests ID... from the Permit Holder. If he addresses the driver only then both do not apply UNTIL he address and asks for ID from the Passenger. If he says "do you have some ID?" to the passenger, then yea. Even if he says something like "and who are you?" then it is likely it is now applicable and would be wise to think about producing an ID and Permit.

If licensed and not carrying... no duty to inform
If licensed and carrying... duty to inform.
If not licensed and concealed carrying... your in deep do do.
I'm certainly not trying to start anything here and I understand where you are coming from, but as I've stated before in other post, if a "road check" stops an idiot from driving and drinking, I'm for it. I had a very close friend killed by a drunk driver. If this drunk driver had been stopped at a road check on that day, my friend would probably still be alive. Just my feelings.What's a "road check"? A Fourth Amendment violation?
You can NOT carry concealed in SC unless you possess a CWP. There is NO open carry in SC.SC has a duty to inform only if your licensed correct?

If you are asked for identification, you must present your permit as well, and it would be a good idea to tell the officer you are armed and where it is concealed.
REVMAN, I'm with you. I'm suspicious of anyone who doesn't want to go through a road block. What'cha got to hide? Lots of drunk and doped drivers are caught that way, and even the occasional felon.
