To all... I've seen plenty of requests from people in these forums for information regarding this subject. Being in the military and having transport my own weapons when I transfer, I need to have this law with me in my glove box.

This may be your only recourse should you be stopped and your vehicle searched in a not so firearms friendly state.

Any LEO that would like to weigh in on this, please do!
