I also think that it is a status thing, i.e., those with a CHL viewed as better than those without like a high school clique.
I agree, Thats why I always like to see pushes for changes that effect everyone.
A lot of times it's just easier to argue in favor of carving out exceptions for CHL because of the background check, finger printing, and "training".
That piece of plastic as far as im concerned just C.Y.A in a number of situations.
Does not make the holder any better a person.

When I was first licensed if I was stopped for a traffic stop (usually for no reason other than the fact that the police officer ran my plate while he was engaged in "proactive" policing and following me). As it turned out my plate would come up as an active warrant until he actually stopped me and ran my driver license and confirmed that I am a CHL holder.
Wow did not know it came up as a warrant alert.
I know some PD's have auto license scanners, I don't know if any in Ohio uses them, probably.
Infact I was watching dateline or one of them where they was able to track a car back 6 months prior.. I don't recall which state it was but they kept a database of every license scanned and where, Imagine if we had a system in place that did that in reverse and kept track of police movements? how fast till someones in court?
I have not been stopped but I wonder how often every one else is?
