This is a strange thought I had.
I’m not sure if this would make officers more uncomfortable or relaxed, but my idea was to have a magnet on the back of my car which indicated that I was a concealed carry weapon permit holder (CCW for short) for whatever state I acquired it in. If ever stopped, an officer would immediately know that I had a permit even before I would be given the chance to say so.
My question is, is this even a wise thing to do? Would officers be more put off by this than if the person told them some seconds later after approaching the window? Would other people on the road be put off by this? Is it generally just not a good idea to announce you might have a gun to anyone who is behind you? I’d like to know others’ thoughts.
The question stems from the black and blue magnet that shows support for police officers.
