People say that but I worked for a Chief who would demand a gun be handed over if someone said they had one. Then he'd "clear" it for "officer's safety". He'd check to see if it was an "illegal mag" or not. Illegal search? Nah, they handed it over voluntarily! So of course he had to make sure it was safe and unloaded.
Seems like " i do not consent to a search, but I will comply with your order" would get that kicked. At least you'd hope.
