    750.227d Transporting or possessing firearm in or upon motor vehicle or self-propelled vehicle designed for land travel; conditions; violation as misdemeanor; penalty.

    Sec. 227d.

    (1) Except as otherwise permitted by law, a person shall not transport or possess in or upon a motor vehicle or any self-propelled vehicle designed for land travel a firearm,
    other than a pistol, unless the firearm is unloaded and is 1 or more of the following:

    (a) Taken down.

    (b) Enclosed in a case.

    (c) Carried in the trunk of the vehicle.

    Would that mean you can or cannot carry a pistol taken down, or disassembled? I'm thinking it means it applies to long guns only.

    Thanks for your opinions.

    It applies to all firearms (defined in Michigan) except for pistols. The "other than a pistol" that is seen quite often within the firearm statues, simply means to direct the reader to statues that apply to pistols.
