They didn't up until after 9-11. They started talking to me more about it and since I had the opening I started point out the various crimes and home invasions ect. ect. in their area. Since then my Dad got his LTC and Mom still believes that the police wouldn't write up a 65 y/o retired Air Force officer for not having a license to carry. My Dad also retired Air Force Major (yeah the whole family except one of my brothers is Air Force or Navy) knows better than to think some rookie wouldn't nail him for carrying with a concealed weapon even though he's in his 70's now and hasn't even had a speeding ticket since '92.
