n6orz said:Furthermore, when you accept a CCW permit, you are voluntarily putting your name on an official state list of known gun owners, and you are raising a serious red flag for an officer during a traffic stop. My fellow right-wingers hate gun registration, but they love this form of gun owner registration. This makes absolutely no sense to me.
You have no clue what you are talking about. The database in Indiana will show not only registered gun owners, but those specificly with CCW permits. Why would it raise a serious red flag? You had to pass a backround check to get it, right? :lol: And if you do what you are suppose to and tell the officer the instant he arrives at your vehicle that you have a CCW permit and are armed, then there is no problem.
I do not have mine yet, But I know what happens when you are stopped. My best friend has one and has been stopped twice, once with me in the vehicle. The instant the officer approached the Vehicle the first words out of my friends mouth were "Officer, I am a Licensed Gun owner with the proper permit to carry concealed weapons and I am armed at this time" He had both hands on the steering Wheel.
You know what the officer said? "Ok sir No Problem, Please step out of the vehicle so we may varify this info and I can secure the weapon. Where is your firearm located?" "It's on my hip sir" "Ok sir No Problem" He takes the gun and DL from my friend. pats him down, and tells him to get back inside the Vehicle. The officer returns to the car after being in his cruiser for a bit, Gives my friend his gun back and a warning for speed and tells us to have a nice day..
The officer did not appear to be overly concerned, maybe almost like he has stopped someone with a permit before?? Naaa, that couldn't be :lol:
