Consider a routine traffic stop and assume the driver or the passenger has a firearm, legally obtained, and legally concealed.
Is there any obligation to reveal that they are carrying that firearm?
Also, should one disclose it of your own accord when you are in the following dilemma:
- You have it on your person or nearby where instead of surprising the officer during the routine stop, you'd rather honestly disclose it
The disclosure is a double edged sword, if you do it may make the officer anxious, nervousness and trigger active.
On the other hand, if you don't and during the course of interaction some aspect having a firearm comes to light.
