    Would it be illegal for me to make one in my car and keep a gun in it? I'm not about to bolt a safe in my car and I think I could do something that looked factory.

    From what I can tell, it appears to be illegal for means of concealing contraband i.e. drugs and illegal immigrants lol. Guns seem OK.

    Contraband is drugs, right?

    You don't keep illegal migrant workers stashed away in your car?

    Must be just me then.



    Yeah, contraband is illegal stuff.

    You've gotta have a meal handy in case your car breaks down, right?

    I was thinking that you need someone to change the tires when you get a flat on the side of the road. :cantsay:

    Contraband can be just about anything depending on where you are coming from & where you are going. Bring in fruit from outside the country & it can be contraband, or insects or animals. All kind of crap. But if you are not crossing national boundries then all you should have to worry about are drugs most likely.

    IIRC under FL law. the existence of a secret compartment is prima facia evidence you intend to smuggle.

    Maybe you could install a compartment big enough to put yourself and a Wookie in should the Imperials use a tractor beam to pull you over. The average stormtrooper isn't smart enough to check anyway. They'll have to use a scanning crew instead. May the force be with you.

    BTW: As a GFL holder can't we conceal in our vehicle as we see fit?

    What a fantastic law.

    That is like saying if I have a gun it is because I am going to kill someone.

    Or if you have some lettuce on the side of the road that HAS to be picked.

    Or if you break down on the road next to a lumber mill and need a house framed in.



    I should stop now.
