I'll be in Phoenix for several days and don't know anything about the gun laws over there. Can I keep a loaded handgun in the glove compartment of a rental vehicle? I found this requirement but am not sure if they are talking about a loaded gun. It is unlawful to carry a firearm concealed within the immediate control of any person in or on a means of transportation. This does not apply to firearms carried in a case, holster or in a means of transportation or a storage compartment, trunk, pack, luggage, or glove compartment of a means of transportation. Any general facts about the gun laws there would be appreciated.
