1. It keeps it from being tossed around the car during rough driving.
2. It keeps folks from walking by, seeing it on the dash or the seat, and panicking.
3. It keeps thugs from seeing it on the dash or seat, and breaking into acar to steal it
To me concealed means hidden. Keeping it from bouncing around during rough driveing has nothing do do with concealment and I need to see where KY law saws that is the definition of being concealed.
The other two give the exact definition of concealment. If you want to argue why they say that being hidden in a glove box is fine that is OK but to say that those things are not being concealed is pure BS.
I believe that the law from the code posted says that in a glove box is not concealed on our about the person
and that is exactly correct. That is a lot different than being concealed in your pants pocket
and I imagine that is the reason for this definition and law. But to say that hiding it doesn't mean it is not concealed means a different definition of concealed in KY than in tht rest of the country.
Youneed to read KRS 527.020 (8) again as it doesn't say that is isn't concealed but that it isn't concealed illegally when in the glove box.
I hate to stoop to this level, but you are just being petulant.
No, YOU need to re-read my post.
Let me lay this out so even you can understand it, because you and I are on the same page, other than YOU refuse to grant KRS the ability to say that in the state of KY, just because you can't SEE the gun, doesn't mean it is not CONCEALED, and they make that point very, very clear in the law.
You are wrong. It doesn't say anything about it "isn't concealed illegally" it just says it "SHALL NOT BE DEEMED (deemed here means declared, considered, or titled) CONCEALED ON OR ABOUT THE PERSON..."
IT. IS. NOT. DEEMED. CONCEALED.
Not deemed "concealed illegally".
FYI, being a police officer, I have to deal with this everyday, thank you.
You guys really, really have to quit making this stuff up before you get into trouble.
This is the exact reason I float in and out of these boards. You guys are so anti-cop, and so anti-gov't that you justify in your small, little minds your own interpretations of laws, the constitution, and just about everything else. Even if you have to change the definitions of words, or insert extra words into laws.
That is the reason it is the Kentucky Revised Statutes, not the Pt111 Revised Statutes. It doesn't matter one iotta what you think the definition of "concealed" is, it only matters what the Commonwealth deems concealed. You remind me of President Clinton and his, "it depends on what your definition of 'is' is".
