First Stop While Carrying

This is a discussion on First Stop While Carrying within the Gun Stories forums, part of the Firearm Forum category; I'd have handled the situation the same way you did, Speargun. No, it isn't required to declare her in Florida, but any situation becomes dangerous ...

No, it isn't required to declare her in Florida, but any situation becomes dangerous if there's confusion or misunderstanding. I've been stopped twice since getting my CC permit. The first time, I tried to be the last one to squeeze through a yellow light. It turned red and I deserved the ticket. The officer charged me with a much lesser offence than what had actually happened. I believe, because of my attitude... I did something stupid, thank you for doing your job.
The second time, I turned right at a stop sign at an intersection that I go through every morning. As I turned the corner I realized that there was a cop car on either side of the road about 50 yards up. As I came up to them, an officer motioned for me to pull over. When he came up to the window, I laughed and said, "Man. You guys picked the perfect spot to make your quota... I rolled through, didn't I?" This got a big laugh and, "Here's a written warning. You can just trow it away. I have my copy."
Both times, the officer put his palm out and said, "I don't need to see that." and refused to touch my CCP.

"The situation is clear. - This guy isn't a threat and has a good attitude. - He went through the trouble to get permitted and knows his rights."
