If I get stopped by a police officer, do I, as a permit holder, have to tell the officer I have a gun in my possession?
Absolutely! The requirement to identify yourself to a police officer as a permit holder in possession of a handgun is covered in Public Safety Rule R724-4-13.
If an officer finds or sees a gun on your person during their contact with you, and you have not identified yourself as a permit holder in legal possession of a firearm, the officer must assume you are carrying the gun illegally and will take defensive action. For the safety of all involved, it is better to immediately identify yourself to the officer as a permit holder in possession of a handgun. This action gives the officer some assurance they are most likely dealing with a law abiding citizen.
Hunter, if you actually read R724-4-13, you would have seen that it is the SAME as the code R722-300-12 which I cited in my previous post. The "Absolutely! ..." blah blah blah, is someone's interpretation of the laws in the code R724-4, not the ACTUAL law. I don't like to nitpick, but I feel I must when we start taking opinion as law - so please tell me if any of my 'opinions' are wrong.
The "sees a gun on your person" negates the whole 'concealed' portion of what we are talking about. If you open carry, you must identify yourself if questioned. If the officer "finds a gun on your person" he is in violation of the law unless he has reasonable suspicion, which, if explained, requires you to identify yourself.
As far as I understand, after reading R724-4, the obligation to identify yourself only applies if the LEO suspects you, with reasonable cause, of being in violation of the law - this also pertains to traffic stops, as they must have a reason to pull you over (speeding, traffic violation, etc).
I do agree that being compliant and courteous is the way to go, and I am definitely going to identify myself if the LEO has a reasonable cause to question me. But I am definitely not going to go around tell LEOs that I am carrying. If they don't ask with reasonable cause, I don't tell, and the law doesn't require me to.
