    Monday evening my bosses wife is stopped in small central KY town for speeding, when local cop gets out of patrol car he has his gun drawn, approaches car very carefully and asks lady if she has a gun because registered owner of vehicle has his conceal carry permit, she did not, he asked this same question to her several times, told her that was reason he had his gun pulled, seems to me that knowing a person has his/her permit would indicate that they would be a safer person to be around knowing they had to go through the background check, anyone else had a similar incident, it would really bother me for a cop to have his gun drawn when he pulled me over !
    BTW he gave her a warning ticket

    Local Constabulary = you get what you pay for.

    Good professionals do not work for the Mayberry P.D's....

    The lady should file a complaint through the State's Attorney General's Office.

    The guy in KY sounds like a real Barney Fife.

    I was pulled in the Grand Teton National Park this May for speeding. The officer asked me if I had any weapons. I told him I had two hand guns - a Glock and an S&W .357. He asked if I had a CWP; I told him yes and showed it to him along with my Alabama driver license. He said, "That is fine; just leave them where they are. You are entitled to have them with you." He ran a check on me and gave me a warning. That was it. I thought he was totally professional.

    Why should a cop who pulls a gun on a citizen on the basis of what COULD happen, but with zero evidence of anything untoward taking place, be any less guilty of brandishing a weapon than any other citizen?

    I have to question the initial contact on the traffic stop. The CCW is not indicated on the license plate of the vehicle & a license plate check requested by the officer also does not indicate a CCW for the owner of the vehicle.
    The drivers license does list a CCW for the person. If this did happen, I feel there might be a little more to it. Butch from Pgh

    I'm a little skeptical that the incident occurred the way it was posted-particularly since the poster is only relating it as it was told to him. In some states the CCW does appear on the license plate information (North Carolina being one.) If stopped by a police officer, the driver is supposed to open the window part way, place both hands on the steering wheel, and immediately inform the officer that he has a CCW and whether or not he has a weapon.

    273.110 - 15 says there is no need to announce - only produce when requested to do so by law enforcement

    Being a retired LEO, I inquired about this to several LEOs still on the job. According to them, there is not a state they know of that indicates a CCW from license plate info. They are quite a few "urban legend" type stories about what "to do" & "not to do" if stopped. The best thing is to check your state regs, relative a CCW.

    Texas CCW is not tied to the vehicle's plates, but to your drivers license. When they run your license, it comes up that you have a CCW. We used to have to show them (CCW), when you got pulled over, but I don't think so anymore. I haven't been stopped in about 8 years, so, I don't how it is today. That's my 2 cents.

    you are correct, I was not there, it was told to me by my boss, the officer had the radio mike buttoned to his vest, the lady could here the radio dispatcher telling him the vehicle was registered to CWP holder, i.e. my boss, I think it was told to me pretty much the way it happened, I have had a Lexington police officer many years ago get out of his car with his hand on his weapon and approach my vehicle cautiously for a speeding offense, I was ticketed, I sent info on this to NRA officer for KY, he thought it probably just an isolated incident, we have no identifying CWP listed on license plate or drivers license

    Terry, no you would only pull over good looking ladies, that would be profiling !

    here in Arkansas as the gentleman from Texas advised, officers are made aware of the ccw permit when they run vehicle tags or dl number. The officers i know here, and that is most of them, are much relieved when they already know they are probably dealing with a good citizen with a gun, instead of trying to guess. Our police are very much for the right to protect yourself. Of course in our part of the world, guns are just a part of everyday life, everbody has several.......
