You've been pulled over because you are an inconsiderate lead foot. You are driving your own vehicle. You also have a CHL. For this question, it DOES NOT matter whether you have a weapon in the car . I assume the officer runs the tags on the car and familiarizes himself with the legal history of the owner? Is the officer able to see if you have a CHL? The reason I ask is that a state agency (DMV) handles vehicle tags and driver's licences while the county handles the CHL. Apologies for the noob question and thanks in advance for any information.
