  • Traffic stop -- gun

    Hello All,

    I was wondering... if I have an unloaded, locked, registered rifle in my trunk, with the ammo locked in the glove box and I get stopped for speeding or something like that, should I tell the officer ( most likely CHP ).

    My thinking goes both ways, but wasn't really sure. I am trying to be an LEO and didn't want to ask any of the guys I have been around in case it was a silly question...

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. What if its a hand gun, does that change anything?

    If it's in the trunk, why would you tell the officer?

    Now if you have on polka dot drawers on, immediately notify the officer so we can get a good laugh....

      The smart this is to tell us. I personal like to know if there are any guns, drugs, knifes, weapons, large amounts of cash, illegal alines, hand grenades anything like that, is what I ask on all my traffic stops.
      Why do people think they have the right not to listen when they are told to roll a window down or unlock a door?

            well I would think that if you tell the officer that you have a gun, he has to verify that it is legal and registered etc. taking more time and more hassle, not to mention it seems like most cops get really crazy when a gun enters the equation no matter how safe or locked away it is...
