i got pulled over around 4am for failing to stop behind the white line of a stop sign and the officer claimed he smelled weed in my car so he was gonna search it(i never smoked weed in my life).before i got out of the car he asked "do you have any drugs or weapons THAT i should know about", i replied no. he found my gun and said 'oh you lied to me" i replied "no i dont understand why you should know about it because it posed no treat to you and yall are real selective with the words yall use while violating peoples rights so i feel it should work both ways. if you would have just asked me if any weapons were in the car i would have said yes".. he took my gun and said he could arrest me, but he didnt.
i know this may seem petty but after watching them get away with murdering philando castile i dont want to give them any excuse to claim they felt their life was in danger, i would much rather them find my gun when im out of the car than to tell them i have it and have them thinking im reaching for it. this is the main reason i dont have a CHL but will my perspective get me in more trouble, is there really something he could have charged me with?
He could have charged you with Providing False Information to a police officer. The white line is a frequently used reason to stop. Sometimes, there really is no visible white line, so it's sometimes arguable. Your perspective is likely to cause some issue down the road, but I understand why you have it.
