Stop and Frisk in a Concealed Carry World by Shawn E. Fields, 93 Wash. L. Rev. 1675 (December 2018).

This article considers the tension between the “conceal and carry” legislation currently in place in all states, and investigative stop-and-frisk under Terry v. Ohio, which permits frisks based on an officer’s investigation of possible gun possession.  The author proposes community policing alternatives as a solution to respect the rights of permitted carriers in marginalized communities while also protecting officers.
