How safe would you feel if the driver say "yes i have a loaded gun in my car,within arms reach" and then going and running the occupants information knowing that he has a live firearm.

The officer would make the firearm safe,find that the OP had a valid LTCF and no warrants and thus conducted the traffic stop accordingly.
Just no. Having a firearm when I'm licensed to carry said firearm in my vehicle doesn't automatically make me a dangerous psychopath who is going to shoot an officer because I made an illegal left turn and got caught for it. It's this kind of thinking, the "suspend constitutional rights for so-called officer safety" philosophy that creates and enables cops who feel justified in overstepping their boundries on a daily basis.

OP wasn't a threat, siezing his gun wasn't proper (nor legal until OP approved), and OP's approving attitude of the situation is disheartening for everyone who values their 2nd and 4th amendment rights.
