So my realistic advice is to inform the officer(s) your armed if there is any chance they will find out through their own observations/investigations regardless of the 'law' or 'your rights'.
If they wish to overreact after you have made this declaration they will have a very hard time justifying it, but if they 'find' you armed they will have a much better justification for an overreaction.
Do as you please, but don't lose touch with reality in the process!!!
kind of the way i see it as well. if a person feels their civil rights were violated or infringed, make a formal complaint with that officers supervisor or superior officer. trying to mount a civil rights case on the side of the road with a hot-headed rookie is never a good idea IMO.

A succinct answer to the OP.
