...good afternoon gents (and ladies), new guy here and sorry if this question has been ran over before (I searched the topic and couldnt find it)...but to my understanding is that if youre in a vehichle your weapon has to be locked up, correct? If so, is this also applicable to motorcycles?
Answer: the firearm does not have to be locked up. That is only applicable if the gun is concealed, (PC 12025) or if you are within 1,000 of a K-12 school (PC 626.9).
+++ALSO: If the above is prefectly legal (that I may ride unloaded, exposed and holstered on my bike) and I am pulled over because the officer sees and wants to ask what the hell Im doing or just inspect, can he still ask to see my license?
Answer: if pulled over because he saw you gun, he will be checking to see if it is loaded, (PC 12031 e), and anytime you are pulled over for any reason you are required to provide your license
to an LEO if asked.
