hey its decent info but if a le ask you if you have any firearms AND YOU ANSWER NO AND YOU HAVE THEM IN YOUR CAR. THAT IS ILLEGAL TO LIE TO LE AND THEY ARE GOING TO SEARCH YOUR CAR ANY DAMN WAY. THEY DON'T NEED YOUR PERMISSION!!! IF YOU LIE TO THEM AND THEY FIND ANY TYPE OF FIRE ARM THEY ARE GOING TO ARREST YOUR ***. I DON'T KNOW WHAT PLANET YOUR LIVING ON BRO. ( HOW DO YOU LIKE MY CAPS LOL
) THE SAFEST THING IS TO BE HONEST AND CARRY ALL YOUR PAPERWORK FOR THE GUN SALE AND COPIES OF LAWS DIRECTLY FROM D.O.J

1. Don't break traffic laws while traveling with OLLs.
2.Do not have firearms or obvious firearm cases in plain sight. Do not have other items/stickers/clothing on your person or vehicle that would indicate firearm possession. This is a good idea in any case, you don't want to advertise to criminals either.
3. If stopped, signal and pull over promptly to a safe spot. Remain seated with your hands on the wheel. If it is night/dark, turn on your interior light and do not reach for anything (including wallet or registration/insurance papers) intill instructed to do so by the peace officer. When he/she asks, inform him/her that you will be getting them out of x area and ask if it's ok. Be VERY polite and sincere. Do not make excuses for whatever violation you are accused of, nor should you admit to any violation. Simply remain silent, or state something like "I understand officer/deputy/patrolman."
3.This is MOST FREAKING IMPORTANT! If asked any questions about the contents of your vehicle, or if you will permit a search, the ONLY answer is NO. You will not tell him what's in there as it is your private stuff, and you will not let him search for the same reasons. Say so respectfully not arrogantly. You never know what is really in your car unless you watch it 24/7 and no one is in it but you. Why invite trouble? Of course if you are carrying OLLs, than you already know there could be trouble.
While some OLL arrests were due mainly to unusual circumstances many others came from simple traffic stops and probably could have been avoided. Also, following the above is likely as anything to get you out of a ticket for whatever you were stopped for, since you will probably be the most pleasant traffic stop that cop has had all day.
