    I applied for my lifetime LTC and received it eight weeks to the day later. I have beenOCing for aboutthree weeks now without any bad feedback.I have been reading the post on this site for awhile and agree with most of the comments but some seem to make no sense, like arguing with LEOif they ask to see yourLTC. I know its against the fourth amendment but i do not see any sense in it,just seems to me that it gives the anti-gunbunch more ammo to say were all just a bunch of gun totinradicals. glad to be here though. :celebrate

    You know you're required by state law to present your LTCH to a LEO on demand, right? How is that against the 4th Amendment?

    I think you're a bit off.

    Many of us say it's illegal for them to disarm us or search us simply for OC'ing... it is BTW. I haven't seen anyone saying anything bad about a LEO requesting to see the LTCH however.

    As noted above by skippy if you are carrying and a LEO asks for your LTCH you must show it, state law.

    So what you're saying is that if it is state law, there is nothing unconstitutional about it? Kinda like the Chicago police arresting you if you're caught with a handgun. Is that law not unconstitutional? What about licensure and registration requirements? Finally, what about driving checkpoints that police set up?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but you seem to be suggesting that if it is state law, there is no way it can be unconstitutional. Yes, state law does require permit holders to present their permits on demand, but state law notwithstanding, it is still a violation of the fourth amendment prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures.

    Not at all. I was suggesting that just because a LEO asks for your LTCH doesn't make it unconstitutional. There's a subtle difference in the arguments.

    You're right that just because it's a law doesn't make it unconstitutional, but until it's challenged in court, it's the law.

    I also direct your attention to the recent case of the Utah driver who took a similar argument (involving his driver's license) to the SCOTUS.

    When a new poster comes in and says he just got his license and just started carrying, I think it's wise council to ask him to check his facts before his next LEO confrontation, because if he's wrong, it's going to get ugly.

    (and yes, I realize he's not necessarily new to either an LTCH or carrying)

    The info I got at the local PD says it would be $40 for the 4 year, and $125 for the lifetime. (plus stamps)
