If you are carrying a piece, with or with out permits or other authorizations, do you have to tell anyone or a law enforcement person? Or is it a "Don't ask-don't tell" situation?

I may carry, I may not. In what situations must you tell?
Arizona is an open carry state (unless posted). In other cases, let common sense apply.

Carry personal protection:
To those people that feel that they need tis lethal kind of protection, I would like to suggest they think about this option " 12 Gage Flare Pistol" as used in boating it is a warning flare gun that will alert anybody around ie: dessert camping, and it fires a 12 gage shotgun slug that burns magnesium just as lethal as a firearm but not classified as one, is it therefor allowed to travel in MH, across states lines. Up here in Canada I travel with a couple of cans of Bearspray in my MH, and that works very well you can't shoot or hurt that you can't see.
Just my 2 pennies,
Helgi.

In Missouri you can't let anyone know you are carrying on your person. That's the whole idea of Concealed Carry. If you get pulled over and they don't ask you don't tell. You don't want anyone handling you piece. That's why you get a separate CCW card and do not have your CCW added to your drivers license. You have a choice in MO.If you hand them your license with the CCW then they know. You don't have to tell anyone.

Anyone ever see the commercial from Brinks where the guy kicks the door in and the dizzy gal goes and answers the phone. Drives me nuts. Alarm on a house is only good when your gone.If they run off when the siren goes off , you don't really need the monitoring, do you. If your home dial 911. They kick mine in they are going to eat lead.

PS a lot of people don't realize you can carry piece in your car without a permit, just not on you.

What you say is only valid in your state. Each state has different laws.

And, yes, the TV ads are ludicrous. The average time to respond for cops is about 20 min. Do you know how much harm can occur in 15 min?

Law in Fla. for carrying a weapon in your car. The two action rule..the weapon is in the glove compartment and in a holster. In other words it take two separate actions to access the weapon.
I agree with jurzbill, as a retired law officer, i don't carry a weapon on my person. i, however, carry one in my vehicle to protect me and my family.
if you carry a gun on your person, in my opinion, you are setting yourself up for a lot of trouble, even though you have a permit. on over anxious , not well trained rookie in a small pd may take you for a criminal and you could get shot before you can show him your permit.

One of the best defense weapons can be found under your kitchen sink, a can of spay oven cleaner. Anyone attempting to enter that gets sprayed in the face will change their mind with out fail. Canned spray paint works too, and offers the advantage of being able to pick them out of a line up.

Oh Yea!

Don't shoot me burglar before I get a chance to get my spray can.

If they're in your house. SHOOT the bastards. They don't even need to be IN your house in MO. They have the Castle law.

You've never been in downtown St Louis.

I'll bet there is a whole lot of people in Texas that wish they had a something in their pocket yesterday.

I think the thought was that this is an easy thing to have access to and is not illeagle to carry. Just a minute mr home invader while I go unlock my gun cabinet and load it, will make as much sense. In a motorhome, a can of oven cleaner in an outside cabinet or near the door is much more easy to access.

Your right, but if you have a firearm on you and you tell them if you come any closer, I will shoot you, they might think twice.

Hea?

And remember, when you go to your CCW lesson, the teach you not to let anyone get closer to you than 21ft. That's the distance you need to react.

They don't teach you how to shoot a gun, they teach you what you need to know in case you do have to use it. If you haven't been to a CCW class, even if you didn't want to carry, it is a learning experience

Also, you can get a Florida permit and a Pennsylvania permit. We did it. And we didn't go there to get it .

No need to go anywhere to get my gun. If deadly force is required it is always within arms reach. I rarely travel where I can not carry legally with my ccw permit.

I hope you are on the same street my Wife and Grandchildren are on when I'm not around . They can't take care of themselves and it's too late to call a cop when they are already robbed or raped.

How many car jackings where your at? That's all that's on the news here.

well, concerning Deadly Force....I'd rather be judged in a court by twelve, than carried in a box by six....IMHO
