Probably is posted on this forum somewhere but;
If you can open carry on a street or while walking, etc, what happens in a car? As Americans, we use our cars frequently and how does this figure in to the opencarry laws?
As an example, I understand that I can carry a gun openly from my house walking to a destination and back. What happens when you involve a car?
(2)(a) A person shall not carry or place a loaded pistol in any vehicle unless the person has a license to carry a concealed pistol and: (i) The pistol is on the licensee's person, (ii) the licensee is within the vehicle at all times that the pistol is there, or (iii) the licensee is away from the vehicle and the pistol is locked within the vehicle and concealed from view from outside the vehicle.
