Back in the day, Johnston, Rhode Island cop pulled me over for speeding. I did not have a duty to inform the officer that I was carrying a pistol. I did not do so. Johnston police are a law unto themselves; they’re about as friendly to the general public as the soup nazi. Equally, I didn’t want to test their support for my natural, civil and constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Here in Texas, I have a duty to inform. When I was pulled over (yeah, it happens) I offered my license and CHL permit at the same time . . .
I had no problem doing so. Even here in Austin, Texas law enforcement are gun-friendly. Besides, my CHL tells the officer I passed a criminal background check. Do you have a duty to inform in your state? If you lived in a state where you didn’t have to reveal your pistol permit, would you do it anyway?
