    Carrying a loading firearm?

    This is a simple question to answer for those that have been carrying. In Ct we are able to carry a loading firearm on our person with a round chambered? As far as in a car, are we able to keep our firearm on us and/or in a location that keeps us in control of it?

    I have been watching a lot of youtube videos (for entertainment purposes) of people standing up to cops for their 2nd and 4th amendment rights and i noticed some states allow open carry but the firearm has to be unloaded. Which is odd to even carry but it made me question what our carry rule are.

    Thanks in advance

    If you have a pistol permit, you may carry loaded/unloaded, chambered/unchambered, in a car or out of a car, openly or concealed.

    Pretty much sums it up!

    Rich B: My favorite argument against OC being legal in CT is "I have never seen someone OC in CT".
    I have never seen a person drink tea from a coke bottle while standing on their head, that doesn't mean it is illegal.

    Yes, with a permit, anything goes. Without one, you cannot take a handgun outside your house ... nice violation of being able to maintain and acquire proficiency (part of 2nd amendment) with the gun.
