As it was already stated, there is no law that says you have a duty to inform. Depending on what county you are in, some judges make it an administrative restriction. You wouldn't be breaking any law if you didn't inform however if there is an incident and the judge finds out, he can revoke your license. It's the same way with "restricted" carry licenses.i can't see it being county to county, that seems like a state wide law...I am against informing just because it isn't anyones business if I'm carrying or not..
Sometimes the police are in fact the bad guys. Plus, it really any of their business. I don't tell them what color underwear I am wearing...lets be clear, the police are not the bad guys, the politicians and the bad guys are bad guys, there should be no fear of informing LEO of a weapon, there should be fear in not letting LEO know and new LEO getting too excited!
if asked to get out of the car/vehicle you put your hands on the steering wheel, in plane view and say "Officer, I am a licensed concealed carry holder and I do have a legal firearm on my person, HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO PROCEED."In the pistol safety course I took last Friday, they made it quite clear that it was better to inform an officer if you are pulled over and carrying. It does make sense in some forms as to show you are not trying to hide it. One of the instructors told a story about how he (or a friend of his... can't remember which) was pulled over while carrying, didn't inform the officer who happened to be a rookie. The officer asked him to step out of the car and when he did, his arm brushed his jacket, revealing the gun on his hip, and the rookie officer went nuts. Drew his gun, pointed it directly at his face and couldn't hold the damn gun steady b/c he was shaking so much. An accidental discharge could easily have occurred and it would have been a bad day for all.
Not really sure what I would do when that time comes...
