I am a LATRINE lawyer....Do Ordinances state the penalty? Who makes the arrest? What court adjudicates the charges? Traffic tickets, such as speeding or failure to obey traffic signals, are usually classified as violations.
There is a Federal law, commonly named the “safe passage law” which allows a CCW permit holder to travel from his state through another state legally if his final destination honors his permit, or he has a non-resident permit for that state. As I remember the gun must be unloaded and secured in the trunk ie. Concealed.
So as you travel on RT84 in CT you go through NB you are breaking NB ordinance.
As a former LEO I can tell you this, I would bet not one LEO in CT knows about the “safe passage law”. Carry a copy of it with you!! Keep your lawyer’s phone number handy.
If the LEO wants to search your car, DO NOT give him permission. Tell him to start with a dog, or get a warrant. Remember the 4th Amendment and remind him of it.
Perfect advice...I’ll try to stay outta trouble. :)
Pray trouble doesn’t find me.
Did the safe passage law grow out of FOPA 86?
