I started wondering if someone asked to see my permit to carry my weapon (I understand I'm required to have it on my person), but who exactly am a REQUIRED to show it to?
(b) The licensee must carry the license, together with valid identification, at all times in which the licensee is carrying a stun gun, concealed pistol or revolver and must display both the license and proper identification upon demand by a law enforcement officer. A violation of the provisions of this paragraph (b) shall constitute a noncriminal violation with a penalty of Twenty-five Dollars ($25.00) and shall be enforceable by summons.
The only person you are required to show it too by law are LEOs and then only when demanded.
That doesn't mean I wouldn't show it to a store owner or someome else if it would set their mind at ease about mycarrying on their premises but there is no requirement to do so. I've never been asked to show my license by anyone yet.
