    Concealed carry question for states that have a notify officer law when stopped.

    If a car is stopped, say in Ohio where notifying the officer you are carrying is required does it apply to everyone in the car or just the driver? Does an officer disarm the driver before going any further & how would that work out with six armed individuals, would the officer call backup? Maybe this is a silly question.

    And you must notify within a reasonable amount of time. The law in OH does not state what that time limit is, but I will notify before the LEO says anything to me.

    If it's an "official" encounter, anyone involved in that encounter needs to notify.

    I would add that you need to check your state/local laws, and any info here in does not constitute legal advice, just opinion. That said, I would always try to act within the law, and in a way that lends itself to my personal survival. Here in TX, a CHLer has a 'duty to notify', but there is no legal penalty for failure. On the street though, that could turn into a bad situation. Most LEOs seem to recognize that as a CHL/CWP holder, you are not a 'bad guy'.

    One, you MUST know the state and local laws where you will have you weapon with you. That is a responsibility you took on as a CCW carrier.
    Two, consider it common courtesy to let the LEO know. I don't where I live and I have notified. I have my license, permit, and insurance ready before the LEO came to my window with both hands on the wheel. No surprises, no problems.
    When the SHTF, don't be infront of the fan.

    In North Carolina, the first words out of your mouth if you are carrying and you are pulled over
    or you encounter a road block are " I am a concealed carry permit holder and I am carrying a
    gun". Then you must tell the policeman where the firearm is located. I have had to say these
    words before at a couple of police checkpoints and everything went smoothly. One officer asked
    me what I was carrying and I told him a Taurus 851 .38 snubnose revolver. He said "Good choice"
    handed me my identification and sent me on my way.

    Here in Kentucky you simply stay in your car, hands in plain sight and tell the officer when he approaches the vehicle. I also ask him how he want to proceed at that point. The two times I've been pulled over they didn't ask for more than my driver's license, proof of insurance and CCDW license. Neither asked anything about the gun or its location. I would assume that would apply to all with you in the vehicle also. Kentucky LEO have it on record as soon as they run your tag or DL as it comes up as having a CCDW license. I know this for fact as my son was pulled over driving my car and he doesn't have a CCDW but was asked if he had a gun which he responded no too. No problem just a routine traffic check due to a tail light being out. I suggest you wait for the officer to approch and not holler out the window that you have a CCDW or a gun as you might get a Barney Fife move in that case.

    A little advice never say gun just say you are have a ccw permit and are now in possession. If a rookie hears gun and is on your six he may go apesh$t Just a friendly reminder. In TN you don't have to say you are carrying but its wise to do so. In Ohio Its dangerous not to say as fast as you can. There has been some ugly times where a guy has not said he was carrying right away. But I believe the cop was dealt with as he was way out of control. This could have happened in another state but it can and does happen.
