  • Laws for carrying in Glove Box

    The law in Florida used to be three step law.
    As long as you had to make three steps to use the gun, ie:
    1. open glove box
    2. unsnap holster strap and remove gun
    3. chanber a round

    I am not sure if that is still the law in Florida, but I am sure someone one here knows.

    So what is the law in your state?
    "Oh, America. I wish I could tell you that this was still America, but I've come to realize that you can't have a country without people. And there are no people here. No, my friends. This is now the United States of Zombieland"

    Wisconsin's new carry law states that storing a firearm in a vehicle is not recommended unless it is in a locked vault attached to the vehicle. The glove box is not considered secure storage.
    If it was man made it can be man re-made.

      If you have a CCL then it's OK....

      I know there are some fellow LEs on here and some will disagree with me and let me say this only applies to good honest law abiding citizens only

      Lock it in your glove box....put your insurance registration in another place that is easily within a visible reach....
      Don't mention it....Don't get near it....Don't allow them to search your locked glovebox without a search warrant issued by a judge....

      I only say this because I've worked with young officers that will arrest you 100% of the time, if you do not have a license to have a concealed weapon. They look at it very black and white, as simply "they are getting guns off the streets". Secondly, even if you don't get arrested they are going to take you gun for safekeeping and you won't get it back before an ATF trace and the prosecutor signs off on it (I'm talking months too). Because, no officer is going to take the risk of giving you a loaded weapon back and you go kill your wife the same day...That actually happened (not killing) but a good officer was fired because he stopped a car, found a gun on a guy and the guy said he needed it because it was a rough neighborhood. The officer put it in the trunk and let him go...later he was witnessed by 30 people as he brandished the gun at a bar. After the NCIC check revealed that gun was ran through 4 hours before his brandishing event. Word got out and he was fired for dereliction of duty.

      OR just get the CCL

        In IL it doesn't matter where in the vehicle it is, the law states the weapon has to be fully enclosed in a case and unloaded. Ammo and mags can be in the same case just not in the weapon.
        Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

            Unfortunately the problem isn't solved .... just another hoop jumped through.

              In NYS there are permits for premisies, hunting and target practice, and no restrictions you can carry concealed there is no "open carry".

                In my state (Ms) you can have a loaded firearm anywhere in your vehicle. But you can't get out of the car with It in publix, unless you have a CWP.

                  In Kentucky, a firearm shall not be considered concealed if located the the glove compartment, whether loaded, unloaded, holstered or unholstered.
                  Failing to plan is essentially planning to fail.

                    In Missouri, they tied in with the CCW law that you do not need a concealed weapons permit to have a firearm stored in your vehicle loaded and ready to go.

                      this is from the Kentucky State Police website

                      In my state Kentucky:

                      Question:
                      I am not prohibited from possessing a firearm, but do not have a carry concealed deadly weapon (CCDW) license. Can I transport a firearm in my vehicle without violating the prohibition in KRS 527.020 against carrying a concealed deadly weapon?
                      Answer:

                      KRS 527.020(8) states in part that:
                      "A loaded or unloaded firearm or other deadly weapon shall not be deemed concealed on or about the person if it is located in any enclosed container, compartment, or storage space installed as original equipment in a motor vehicle by its manufacturer, including but not limited to a glove compartment, center console, or seat pocket, regardless of whether said enclosed container, storage space, or compartment is locked, unlocked, or does not have a locking mechanism. No person or organization, public or private, shall prohibit a person from keeping a loaded or unloaded firearm or ammunition, or both, or other deadly weapon in a vehicle in accordance with the provisions of this subsection. Any attempt by a person or organization, public or private, to violate the provisions of this subsection may be the subject of an action for appropriate relief or for damages in a Circuit Court or District Court of competent jurisdiction. This subsection shall not apply to any person prohibited from possessing a firearm pursuant to KRS 527.040."
                      Failing to plan is essentially planning to fail.

                        Sounds like every state puts their own spin on it. In CA it states you cannot carry a handgun in the center console of glove box.
