Trip with firearm


Kapitis Indagatoris
I was on the streets for 10+ years and always appreciated it when someone said they were carrying. I was recently pulled over in Kansas doing 9 mph over by a deputy. I kept my hands on the wheel and informed him that I was carrying and he said no problem, thanks for letting me know. The adage of it is better to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission doesn't work if you're stopped and they find a firearm on you or in the vehicle. Do the smart thing and tell them up front.
Thanks for your service.

As people said, it depends on the state. I would never mention that I have a firearm. They likely aren’t pulling you over for that. If they ask, that’s a different story, but when it has nothing to do with anything, they shouldn’t and likely wouldn’t ask if you have a firearm. Their job is to investigate potential crime, presumably that you committed, so keep interactions to a minimum aside from cooperation and maybe friendliness if warranted.
