So the way I read the laws, i can carry a loaded rifle in my car as long as it is in plain sight?
Sorry for the thread hijack, anyway this got me thinking (I know scary LOL).
Say you were walking around town with a rifle/shotgun in a rose box like Arnold did in the movie Terminator. Is this legal with or without a GFL?
I don't believe there's any provision for legally concealing a long arm.
A shotgun or rifle is definately a firearm. If a shotgun or rifle is concealed then it is obviously a "concealable firearm."
From my reading, it looks like you can carry a concealed rifle or shotgun with a GFL.
And now to tie this in with the original post.
Why can't you carry a concealed long gun in your car if you have the GFL?
Long guns are firearm and if they are concealed they are "concealable firearms."
The law says "pistol, revolver, or firearm.." If a firearm isn't a pistol and isn't a revolver, it must be a long gun. This seems to indicate that the legislature meant for long guns to be included.
This is why I don't believe that you have to leave a long gun in plain sight if you have a GFL.
Hmm. So it does. I guess I hafta get a 12ga Super Shorty before trench coat weather comes around again...
sorry, i meant to include this in the post, i am only 20, does this have any effect, of course, i dont know how well i will fare with a loaded rifle just laid in the back seat,
What if you put your rifles in a case to go to the range?
I'm looking at getting a tennis racket case for the underfolder... I heard they fit in those and it occurs to me that might be a nice way to hide it at home.
(d) This Code section shall not forbid the transportation of any firearm by a person who is not among those enumerated as ineligible for a license under Code Section 16-11-129, provided the firearm is enclosed in a case, unloaded, and separated from its ammunition. This Code section shall not forbid any person who is not among those enumerated as ineligible for a license under Code Section 16-11-129 from transporting a loaded firearm in any private passenger motor vehicle in an open manner and fully exposed to view or in the glove compartment, console, or similar compartment of the vehicle; provided, however, that any person in possession of a valid permit issued pursuant to Code Section 16-11-129 may carry a handgun in any location in a motor vehicle.
Although it does not appear to specifically outlaw a loaded firearm in plain view. This subsection is just talking about what the law does not do.
