The only time an LEO should find out you're carrying, unless notification is required in your state, is when he begins a personal search and asks if you have and knives guns or drugs on you. That's when you say, "yes a firearm, my clod permit Is in my wallet sir."

I agree but I would inform if (and only if) he asked me to step out because at that point you are going to get a pat down.

Of course if the cop asks I answer truthfully
 

Wel, at least he signed off on your ability to be a sheepdog. :bad:

The guy was an idiot. He required that you clear your weapon and show empty before entering the class area then about half way through the class one of the "student's" husband takes of his coat and he's carrying a
loaded .357.

And it wasn't till we got to the firing range that he informed us that we had to pay an extra $20.00 for the range fee.

Also, at his house he showed us his wife's new Beretta and said anyone that wanted to try firing it at the range could. Then he went off on me for asking.

At the range his "instructors" spent all their time w/ the young women in tight jeans and refused to help my wife. (kinda ambivalent about that one) I watched her standing on the firing line almost in tears so I went and asked the guy's (IMO only qualified) female instructor who happened to be an EPSO deputy to help her. and My wife calmed down and did the course of fire just fine.

ETA To clarify I think the EPSO deputy was his only qualified instructor period regardless of gender.

Ths is for you, Agent Green...you make a list of mistakes posted here? Not all of us are good at English. Or some just simply are the way they are spelled because some people have phonetic ears and spells that way. As long as you understand the message, why bother correcting them. I have met more intelligent people who are brilliant at what they know than how they spell. I have met mediocre people who are good spellers but not so good at anything. For some people like me, English is not even my first language but I tried -- because I have to compete, because I want to be able to express myself with people whose interests shares mine.

Please ease up. We did not come here to learn English or another language, but to exchange ideas, wrong spellings or tenses or whatnots....
 
I must agree with ASC1WBULLOCK. Unless management of the establishment REQUIRES CCW holders to identify (Something I have never heard of!) such a holder gains nothing by stating that he/she is packing. It is none of their business. It might expose the holder to danger (Targeted by bad guy(s))and amounts to simple-minded braggadocio. God knows that, if you NEED to pull the weapon, people will find out soon enough!
 
Are you serious?

Why would someone even ask that question?

Uh, no, but i do tell them that I've been in an airplane.

Yes, it is a serious question. Some of us think it is just as, if not more, foolish and unnecessary to inform a police officer of a CCW (when not required by law) as it is to inform a front desk clerk or taxi driver. Many people cite "courtesy", "respect", "the officer just wants to go home safe at night", and "to put them at ease" as reasons to notify a police officer of their CCW. Those particular reasons should be more applicable to those persons whom we might deal with that are in more dangerous professions than police officers, therefore those people who inform police officers for those particular reasons should be more eager to extend the same "courtesy" to those other, more dangerous professions.

I'm interested in how you came to the conclusion that a hotel clerk or a taxi driver holds a more dangerous job than a police officer

I didn't come to the conclusion that a taxi driver's job is more dangerous that a police officer's. The Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics did.

And notice where police officers are on the last chart in this series:

http://www.bls.gov/iif/oshwc/cfoi/cfch0009.pdf

The very bottom. A garbage collector is 1.5 times more likely to die on the job than a cop is. A fisherman is 6 times more likely to die on the job than a cop is.
 
NO ONE gets to know if I am carrying. Except, an LEO interacting with me in the line of duty. It's the Law. I don't have to necessarily agree or "like" it, but that's the way of it.

The only difference between a BG and a CCW gunslinger is that the CCW type generally tries to comply with the Law. (Probably why our Elected Elites always pass "gun laws" that only affect the law abiding, it's the only means by which their grand edicts get paid any attention to at all. Certainly doesn't bother the BGs!)

It's a "trust" thing. Generally, our legislators don't trust us average citizens too awfully much. (Well, that, at least, is mutual.) They don't draw approval ratings consistantly in the teens for nothing, ya know! LOL!

Thanks for the information, it is actually pretty interesting to look at. But I must say that taxi drivers encounter violence and danger for different reasons than police do. So equating the two is not reasonable. The article points out that one reason taxi drivers have especially high rates of violence against them is because they work with cash, making them a target for robbery. Cops do not share this motivation of being targeted for violence.

With this said, there are different motivations for informing police while not informing a taxi driver. I may find it reasonable to inform a cop of my weapon in an attempt to show my willingness to cooperate and reveal to him that my intentions are not that of committing violence against them. A cop killer is most likely not going to tell a cop they have a gun before using it against them.

In relation to a taxi driver, a big reason why their job is dangerous is because they have cash, and lots of it. Informing a taxi driver that you have a gun may be taken in the opposite way, as a threat. Bank tellers also have lots of cash and if you tell a bank teller you have a gun, you will most likely be interpreted as a robber.

Are you serious? Do you actually think the purpose of that post was to point out grammar and spelling? It wasn't. Oh the irony...

Great big +1. Absolutely amazing how that works, isn't it!
 
Here's my deal with police and why I brought up the initial discussion about the taxi drivers in another thread.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics there are at least nine other professions that are more dangerous than police officer. My garbage collector is more likely to get killed on the job than a police officer is. Where would I be without my garbage collector? What if he didn't show up for work for two, three or four weeks in a row? Would our lives suffer if all of the garbage collectors in the country took a month vacation? Hell yes. And garbage collectors have a pretty thankless job.

What about the farmers who work for 12-16 hours a day, usually, to put food on our tables? What about the stress they have wondering if a storm is going to wipe out their crop, and several months of paychecks in one day? Wondering if the gas prices are going to keep them from being able to make any money? They are more likely to get killed on the job than a cop is. Without the farmers and ranchers, where would we be? We would be out in our gardens, or out in the woods hunting for several hours after work EVERY DAY, just to feed ourselves and our families. The same is true for fishermen.

What about loggers/lumberjacks? When was the last time you hugged a lumberjack? If it wasn't for them, exposing themselves to many times more danger every day than a police officer does, where would you be? Look at everything that is made of wood around you. Where does that come from? Do you want to go out and cut down your own trees to make the 2x4's in your house from?

Now, in regards to police officers. They are doing a job. Nothing more, nothing less. Is it an important and dangerous job? Yes. Any more important than a farmer, garbage collector or lumberjack? Not really. Do police officer's deserve special treatment from me because they wear a uniform and a badge? Absolutely not. Police officers' authority is limited to what is granted to them by statute and many times more restricted than statute by state and US Constitutions. I feel no need to offer police officers anything more than is required by law and anything more than I would the lumberjack who cut the wood for my house, the farmer who puts food on my table and the garbageman who takes away my garbage. I see no reason at all to place police officers into any kind of elite status because of the profession they have chosen.

In fact, if we didn't have the farmers, the lumberjacks, the fishermen, and the garbage collectors, I fully believe that our lives would be greatly more affected than if we didn't have police officers.

And that is the point to these questions.... exactly why is it that the uniform and the badge deserves special treatment above and beyond that treatment afforded to hardworking men and women who are in much more dangerous jobs, without whom our lives would eventually become extremely miserable.

If you had read my post you would have realized that one of the main reasons why taxi drivers are targeted for violence is because they have cash, so they get robbed. Therefore, you would reveal your gun before committing violence or threatening it against them.

If informing a cop was seen as a threat, everyone in states that require informing cops would be put in jail for threatening the cop, and everyone in other states would likewise be thrown in jail for informing as well.
Cops do not have "perceived" authority. Your state constitution gives them real authority.

I did read your post. Then I changed it to my post. If you read my post, you would have seen no argument against robbery of taxi drivers. I believe in most cases, where a violent act is committed with a firearm, or a threat is committed with a firearm, the firearm has to be revealed, Taxi or cop, period. How does it change between the two? Do you think when there is violence against police the bg keeps the firearm in their pocket and shoots from there, keeping the firearm completely concealed the whole time?

If informing a cop wasn't a threat, Canton, Ohio wouldn't have happened. "There's no Harliss bull**** that's going to happen today," wouldn't be such a great line either.

They do have authority through state, authority of law, not of opinion. While bad guys will kill police officers trying to avoid the officers authority of law, it's the officers perceived authority of their own opinion that makes them dangerous to law abiding citizens.

Like you said earlier, there are different motivations in telling different people. I do not feel motivated to tell ANYONE that doesn't know I am all ready carrying that I am doing so unless I feel its safer for ME. Not safer for a taxi driver, not safer for a cop, not safer for bambi...only safer for ME is the only reason I will tell someone. Do I believe its safer for me to tell an officer? No. Taxi driver? No. Hotel Clerk? No. Garbage man? No.
 
Do I believe its safer for me to tell an officer? No. Taxi driver? No. Hotel Clerk? No. Garbage man? No.

And the person in that list who is MOST dangerous TO YOU if you tell them about your gun is the police officer, which is why a police officer is the LAST person I will tell about my gun, unless it is required by law.
