I was told that the gun has to be in open view, like on the seat. Can it be loaded or does it have to be unloaded. Can anyone shed some light on this or point me somewhere?
No law addresses OC and what is legal/illegal. The defintion of a CCW is " 1. “Concealed firearm” means a loaded or unloaded pistol, revolver or other firearm which is carried upon a person in such a manner as not to be discernible by ordinary observation." So basically, as long as it isn't concealed on your person, you're fine.
OC in a vehicle has been a non-issue in my experience on this board. Gun can be loaded. Rifles can have loaded magazines, but must have an empty chamber (hunting thing).
