I came across this excerpt from a 7th Circuit case while doing some research today. A guy hands his out-of-state CCW license to an IL State Trooper . . . and is surprised when he is detained and searched:
This account, as described by Lee, does not even hint at police misconduct. As soon as Trooper Price made contact with Lee, he was handed an out-of-state license to carry a concealed firearm. Price would have been remiss in not asking Lee if he had guns in the car, see People v. Ross, 289 Ill. App. 3d 1013, 682 N.E.2d 87, 90, 224 Ill. Dec. 526 (Ill. App. Ct. 1997) (explaining that police officer who was handed gun permit by motorist during routine traffic stop could reasonably assume that motorist was armed and ask about guns), though the inquiry would have been innocuous during a stop for speeding even without any suspicion, United States v. McBride, 635 F.3d 879, 882 (7th Cir. 2011); United States v. Childs, 277 F.3d 947, 954 (7th Cir. 2002) [*6] (en banc).Lee v. Price, 2011 U.S. App. LEXIS 12293 (7th Cir. Jun. 17, 2001).
