    For some reason I don't like the idea of drawing a firearm under stress while it is pointed directly at my feet and legs. Also once drawn you only have 2 options to clear the steering wheel. 1) sweep the right leg and or knee if the threat is to your right. 2) sweep your left leg/femoral artery, groin and then possibly your stomach if the threat is to your left.

    Maybe it's just me.

    I think like anything else this would require some training and practice, but I don't think 'sweeping' yourself is necessary. It appears that drawing, keeping the hot direction toward the dash as you bring it above the steering wheel and then circling the point over the wheel and out the windows (assuming right hand draw, because if you are strong left in a vehicle it constrains your movement as the driver) would be very functional. The other option would be draw and point up as you draw, firing from under the wheel would also work as you fall down into a semi-sheltered state. It appears to be a workable item.
    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.

    Unless your car sits up high so no one can see under the wheel, then no. Not a good idea. I like it between the seat or in the door slot.
    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?
