Any officer who tells an armed person to hand them the firearm is waiting to be a statistic. They should separate you from the firearm and if they have a reason to go in the bag they can. If you have a license to carry there would be no reason to go in the bag unless he has probable cause the firearm is stolen or used in a crime. There is a consent search, a probable cause search or a search incident to arrest to worry about. However, officers can do a weapons pat down search for officer safety if they think a weapon is involved and this includes the person and items within reach.
