    Cops: Driver had gun on dashboard

    A North Carolina man on his first trip to New York was arrested after police pulled him over and found a gun on his dashboard, authorities said.

    State troopers stopped William J. Kendrick late Monday for towing a trailer behind his pick-up truck on the Southern State Parkway in Nassau County, police said. Kendrick, of Asheboro, N.C., had a loaded .9-millimeter handgun on the dashboard of his 1998 Dodge pick-up, police said.

    He told officers it was his first time in New York and he didn't know it was illegal to carry the gun, state police said.

    The troopers arrested Kendrick, whose age was not released, and charged him with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a Class C felony under New York law.

    The incident happened at about 11:15 p.m. Monday.

    Arraignment details were not immediately available, and police did not say where on the Southern State in Nassau Kendrick was stopped

    If your driving through other states you really need to look into the carrying laws there.

    In NC Open Carry is perfectly legal. If you do not have your CCW/CHP/CWP then you can place a gun in plain sight to transport it. This is the dash, passenger seat, or on the center console; however is appropriate.

    I travel with a holster buckled into my passenger seat to hold my Glock.

    In MI if you don't have a CPL the pistol must be unloaded, cased, and have ammo seperate and cased as well. The only good thing about MI law is that a "case" isn't really defined and according to my lawyer you can wrap it in a sweater and have it be legal.

    I've also been told that a loaded magazine = a firearm if it's in your car, which I don't get. :weak:

    Parkways are meant for commuters here, plus they were all built back in the 30's and most have the original bridges which are quite low, truckers still get on them and take the tops off their trailers once or twice a week though.

    Ignorance is no excuse for breaking a law.

    It is too easy to go to a site like opencarry.org and check the map to see which states have what laws.

    NYC needs to just make its own state and leave the rest of NY to itself
