Hello to All, I'm a new guy here, and I'm also a new guy on the CaliforniaCCW forum under the same name. I am attempting to educate myself on the various aspects of both CCW (LTC) and OC. My question is if I am OC and am stopped by the recognized local Law Enforcement agency to identify myself, why would I not do so? As a citizen I should always strive to comply with their request.
After I provide anything and everything requested of me and they realize that I am legally OC and have no intention of commiting a crime, I would imagine our parting ways as follows. "Thank you Mr. So n So. I apologize for the inconvenience, thank you for your cooperation, have a good day". At which time I would thank the officer and mention that I understand that he was questioning me as a matter of public safety.
I figure that if I cooperate, they will see that I'm one of the good guys. Or should being prepared for the worst possible scenario be the biggest concern?
