    Question about polling places.

    My polling place is at a school. I know I have to be unarmed, do I have to leave my extra magazines in the car too? I haven't seen the carrying of extra ammo discussed anywhere.

    I believe yes because it is a firearm part/explosive item.
    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    Is there a valid reason to wish to carry ammo into the polling place when the firearm will be left in the vehicle?

    Just less stuff to unnecessarily unload.

    When I have to leave my handgun in my vehicle I always used to unload it and carry all magazines with me unless they were prohibited too. It would not be very fun comming back to your vehicle and looking down the barrel of your own loaded gun with someone else holding it wanting your keys, wallet, cell phone, watch and other items.

    I have a secure lock box installed now. So I can lock it up and not worry about it on short trips inside.
