    Things just got a whole lot more interesting in NYS

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/19/ny...ops.html?_r=1&

    it has always been a law in NYS that as a concealed carry weapon (CCW) permit holder, you did not have to tell a police officer if you were carrying a firearm. It was generally up to the individual to reveal that information. Some permit holders would tell officers they were carrying a firearm out of common courtesy. If asked you are REQUIRED to answer truthfully. Which sometimes (not very often) lead to being removed from your vehicle and being temporarily handcuffed and your weapon removed and 'made safe'(Mag removed and chamber emptied) while an officer 'did his/her thing'. And if everything went smoothly you were released (probably with a traffic award) and your weapon returned with the mag removed and asked to wait til you were in the car to reload.

    Now the protocol has changed. Now the police can't ask unless they suspect criminal activity.

    Now-a-days as citizens loose more rights everyday, you MUST know what rights you do have.

    Be safe.....Be smart

    They wouldn't have pulled you over unless they suspected criminal activity, right?

    traffic violation is not considered criminal behavior in NYS. It is a misdemeanor to violate the traffic code, but generally it's not considered "criminal activity"

    In CA only reckless driving, racing and drunk driving are misdemeanors. All other moving violations are infractions.

    In CA, nearly all misdemeanors require going before a judge. With traffic tickets they just want your money...no face time.
