Do you know what to do if you're pulled over by police and you have a weapon in the car? Let's ask Austin lawyer Sam Bassett for an Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.
The first thing you should do is obviously cooperate with the officer and inform the officer you have a weapon, and where it's located. Officers are always very appreciative of this, and it also avoids any situations where your possession of a gun might be best interpreted as an intent to harm or do something dangerous with the officer present.
