I don't always carry, but when I do I sometimes think of how best to handle this situation if it comes up. I realize that I am not legally obligated to inform the officer that I am armed, but feel it is the polite/smart thing to do. So do I just say "Hello officer, it shouldn't be an issue, but I feel I should let you know that I have a CCW and am currently armed."? With all that has happened in the last few weeks I would understand and even hope that these men and women are on edge a little bit concerning their safety. What do you guys think?
