    If a Cop pulls you over on a traffic stop and you are openly carrying a Private Sales Long-gun, Or Pistol in the car does he have the right to lookup the serial # of each firearm and if so how do you prove its not stolen if it was a private sale ?

    We had a similar thread based on the story that there's a LEO (shurf I think) in east TX that does this routinely. He's "the man" so he can. Checking for stolen will yield results if it has been reported stolen. In that case, as a TGTer, you'll be SOL, cause TGTers don't get BOSs.
    Also, If you're open carrying the pistol, you need to be licensed & have it holstered.

    Well would caution any Texicans dont be openly carrying a pistol in a car. Keep that hid. If he is a nosey rookie and axe do you got one? You say yes its in lock down in the glove box or in my pocket etc. Rookies are well armed and highly dangerous just ready to pop a cap on an alleged perp bad guy. Dont give em any excuses. Thanks.

    So I have to prove I didn't commit a crime even if no crime was reported?

    Guilty until proven innocent? I thought it was the other way around.

    I hope that is some kind of sarcasm because you make very little sense.

    Ya because we all know a hand written scrap of paper with a couple of names scribbled on it saying I bought this stolen gun from joe blow will keep you from taking the ride.

    I don't believe (at this point) in the "vehicle search" that one has to "prove" something is not stolen! There is also the "probable cause" thingy in the law.
