Oh well this makes a big difference. I forgot you don't need a permit there. So I guess I am ok with them informing the officer. I thought it meant with the permit. With the permit you should never have to.I read that if you have the permit, you are not required to mention it to the officer.
I agree, but at least you get to carry with a permit, that is better than even here. I agree with the fifth, if we could live in a perfect world then you wouldn't have to say anything. But I guess you should be thankful for what you get this day and age.I don't think we should have to inform them if you factor in the fifth amendment. Technically you don't have to answer any questions or make any statements.
If an officer asked me, I would be ok with telling him I do. Most officers will show you respect if you just respect them as well.Allegedly you do if asked according to: http://concealednation.org/2015/07/do-you-have-a-duty-to-inform-when-carrying-concealed-we-look-at-all-50-states-for-the-answers/
I think that is a couple years old though. I'll try to find the latest here in a bit.Allegedly you do if asked according to: http://concealednation.org/2015/07/do-you-have-a-duty-to-inform-when-carrying-concealed-we-look-at-all-50-states-for-the-answers/
Perhaps location is something to take in consideration. Know your community and the officers if possible. Or at least what you can and can't get by with. Small town USA can be very different than big city. Longmire has a gentler touch than the Minneapolis officer in questionUnless you are in Minneapolis?
