Here’s What To Do When You Are Stopped By The Police & You Carry A Concealed Firearm

Here is some good advice, if you are a CCP holder and you are ever pulled-over by the police for a traffic stop. One thing you should do when the officer asks for your drivers license and registration, is hand-over the required documents and also your CCP card.

Because there has never been a federal law that covers the issuance of concealed or open-carry permits, states determine the extent to which they can be issued. All 50 states allow, at some level, concealed carry, but some states are considerably more restrictive than others. It’s always a smart bet to learn about the gun laws of your state.

Remember folks, police officers have a very stressful job and your attitude will determine the outcome of your experience when dealing with them.
