concealed carry question for police
I sometimes carry my pistol in a maxpedition bag. If I am stopped for any reason, and a police officer asks if i have a gun, I would say, "Yes." If he then asks me to hand it to him while he checks my stuff, how does that work?
I dont really want to hand over the bag as it has a notebook that I journal in. It has my phone in it. I have all kinds of personal things in the bag I dont want people looking through. Nothing illegal or anything, but still private.
Would a police officer allow me to take the gun out of the bag and hand it to him? Do police officers often want to keep the gun through a car stop?
Thanks for any information.
edited to add: I have a concealed carry permit.
