I was listening to Krok Talk on WSB Radio. One of his callers said that he was told by a DNR officer that he could only transport his rifle if it is unloaded. This made me a bit curious so I pulled up the code Georgia Code. Section 16-11-126(d) reads: 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. This says to me that, yes, transporting it unloaded and separated from its ammo is one option. Yet another option would be to transport it in a way that is fully exposed or in "the glove compartment, console, or similar compartment of the vehicle". Would a gun rack mounted across the rear window in the cab of a truck constitute "fully exposed"? Exactly what does "similar compartment of the vehicle" mean? Does that rule out the trunk of a car? What about a comparment that is not standard equipment on the vehicle (i.e. bed-mounted tool box, storage units like those marketed for Wranglers or LEOs)?
