does that count as "concealed"?
To which state are you refering?
Not in Texas anymore. Rednecks FTW!!!
Concealed carry and 'readily accessible in a vehicle' generally are considered the same in most states.
Here in NC you can have it sitting on the seat next to you in plain sight and it's considered open carry. I keep mine in my glove compartment when it's not on my hip so that's concealed.
In FL it has to be "securely encased," meaning inside the glovebox/console/gun case.
Florida CAN be in the glove box with NO CCW. I learned that in my CCW class.
Beat me to it!
well, home state is VA, but, assume i travel through other states... what happens?
is it different if its in the trunk vs on the seat next to me vs on the back seat vs glove...
fucking bullshit that i'm even asking these questions ... SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED
in CA, it must be unloaded, in a locked container... glove box/center console/etc doesn't count as a locked container, even if it locks
Trunk is OK in just about all states. Some states allow firearms allowed to be carried in the open in your car. Generally the same ones that allow open carry on your hip.
Anyone can carry a loaded weapon in their car as long as they are over 21 in Missouri.
in pa you must have a CCL in order to bring it into the car unless you are going to or from a FFL or a target range.
In New York:
If we are talking about handguns, you must have CCW in order to possess a handgun anywhere, even in your home. You are not permitted open carry anywhere, anytime.
In NYC, you're not going to get a permit, and you are simply not legally permitted to defend yourself with a handgun...anywhere. /end
NYC is a fucked up place to live... even to visit.
Like you said, it varies on the state. You'll have to check the transportation requirements of the state you're traveling through unless you're going to be taking a trip that would give you protection under FOPA.
You take the mag out, unchamber the round, put it in a case in the trunk.
"house of the rising sun" = devil went down to georgia = georgia?
Like you said it varies by state. It also varies by the condition and storage situation of the gun. Then there is traveling between states with a gun in the car and states that like to be difficult.
Then there are the states that don't give a shit what their citizens do, but terrorize vistitors or passers-by from other states.
anywhere in the car, except on your hip, without any permit here
WI is gay.
Here, it has to be unloaded and in a lockable case made for transporting a firearm. However, I have heard of a guy on a department near me requesting a charge for concealed weapon off a sword, in its' sheath, in the trunk of a car he stopped for DUI
I'm not really sure what he was doing in the trunk since it was a search incident to arrest and said department doesn't conduct inventory searches, but maybe that had something to do with why the DA told the cop to pound sand. However, this is the kind of mentality too many coppers here have. There really are a lot of uptight pricks around here
Forgot to mention it has to be out of the drivers' immediate reach, so for a car, put it in the trunk. If it's an SUV or truck, put it in a case in the back.
WI Statutes for your reading pleasure:
Notice the disturbing lack of detail for the CCW statute.
These are the 2 main statutes that are used to enforce the no concealed carry laws here, but obviously a PD will charge 941.23 if they can get a conviction on it since it is a Class A Misdemeanor. The other one is a citation for about $100 bucks and is just a civil forfeiture.
WI is gay. I'm glad you recognize that.
Still better than MN though
Not by a long shot there bud.
