If I'm reading it correctly, it would appear the legislature wishes to make the mere suspicion of a legal object being present a reasonable, articulable suspicion that crime is afoot.AN ACT CONCERNING THE PRESENTATION OF A CARRY PERMIT.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:
Section 1. Subsection (b) of section 29-35 of the 2016 supplement to the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective July 1, 2016):
(b) The holder of a permit issued pursuant to section 29-28 shall carry such permit upon one's person while carrying such pistol or revolver. Such holder shall present his or her permit upon the request of a law enforcement officer [w̵̶̶̵h̵̶̶̵o̵̶̶̵ ̵̶̶̵h̵̶̶̵a̵̶̶̵s̵̶̶̵ ̵̶̶̵r̵̶̶̵e̵̶̶̵a̵̶̶̵s̵̶̶̵o̵̶̶̵n̵̶̶̵a̵̶̶̵b̵̶̶̵l̵̶̶̵e̵̶̶̵ ̵̶̶̵s̵̶̶̵u̵̶̶̵s̵̶̶̵p̵̶̶̵i̵̶̶̵c̵̶̶̵i̵̶̶̵o̵̶̶̵n̵̶̶̵ ̵̶̶̵o̵̶̶̵f̵̶̶̵ ̵̶̶̵a̵̶̶̵ ̵̶̶̵c̵̶̶̵r̵̶̶̵i̵̶̶̵m̵̶e] for purposes of verification of the validity of the permit or identification of the holder, provided such law enforcement officer has reason to believe such holder is carrying a pistol or revolver t̵̶̶̵h̵̶̶̵a̵̶̶̵t̵̶̶̵ ̵̶̶̵i̵̶̶̵s̵̶̶̵ ̵̶̶̵o̵̶̶̵b̵̶̶̵s̵̶̶̵e̵̶̶̵r̵̶̶̵v̵̶̶̵e̵̶̶̵d̵̶̶̵ ̵̶̶̵b̵̶̶̵y̵̶̶̵ ̵̶̶̵s̵̶̶̵u̵̶̶̵c̵̶̶̵h̵̶̶̵ ̵̶̶̵l̵̶̶̵a̵̶̶̵w̵̶̶̵ ̵̶̶̵e̵̶̶̵n̵̶̶̵f̵̶̶̵o̵̶̶̵r̵̶̶̵c̵̶̶̵e̵̶̶̵m̵̶̶̵e̵̶̶̵n̵̶̶̵t̵̶̶̵ ̵̶̶̵o̵̶̶̵f̵̶̶̵f̵̶̶̵i̵̶̶̵c̵̶̶̵e̵̶r.]

The right way is to eliminate all gun laws. Even a constitutional amendment is a law .. it acknowledging that the state CAN regulate your RKBA.Not sure I see the issue. If a state requires one to have a permit to open carry, so be it. Only way to get around it is to change the State Constitution to one like WA State's. That or a Constitutional Carry law.
FWIW, I've been showing my WA CPL to "cops" for over 50 years now and never received anything from them other than "Thank You". Then again, I've only had to deal with officers like that during traffic stops. Out with the license AND the CPL. No issues at all. Same in states where they have reciprocity with WA State.
