THERE IS CURRENTLY NO UTAH LAW/REGULATION REQUIRING THAT WE NOTIFY AN OFFICER THAT WE HAVE A CONCEALED PERMIT AND/OR HAVE A CONCEALED WEAPON IN OUR POSSESSION.Do I have to inform a Trax officer or UTA Police officer inspecting Fare that I am carrying concealed?
I am curious if this is considered questioning?
No, I don't have the specific cite right this moment but I shall give you a link in a few moments.
"If I get stopped by a police officer, do I, as a permit holder, have to tell the officer that I have a gun in my possession? Although there is no legal requirement to identify yourself to a law enforcement officer, it is recommended to do so.
If an officer finds or sees a gun on your person during their contact with you, and you have not identified yourself as a permit holder in legal possession of a firearm, the officer must assume you are carrying the gun illegally and will take defensive action. For the safety of all involved, it is better to immediately identify yourself to the officer as a permit holder in possession of a handgun. This action gives the officer some assurance they are most likely dealing with a law abiding citizen."
