Ohio used to require "in plain sight" of handguns even for CHLers but they did away with that.

Just curious for those of you that live in states that still have that, how do you deal with that while vehicle carrying?

Nope, here your car is an extension of your home.

Not in the "Live free or die" state.

Sounds like another silly rule designed to "foil violent criminals," who will obviously respond by keeping their Hi-Points in plain sight, scratched-off-serial-number-side up.

Ohio did a good thing by getting rid of that crap requirement. Now they just need to get rid of the notification BS along with a bunch of other needless crap and we'll be ok.

Maybe Ohio can take a few lessons from PA and model our concealed carry law after theirs...:whistling:

In KY, even before concealed carry, you could always carry a loaded gun in your glove compartment. Anywhere else, it has to be in the open or have a CCW.

To my knowledge, Ohio was the only state to have such a ridiculous requirement.

Thankfully they dumped it.

NC had that requirement at one time. Not sure if they still do.

In AZ, it can be readily accessible, and concealed, so long as your not in commission of a crime. I've always wondered if that includes traffic citations? Say, if I'm speeding and carrying my CCW?

In Michigan any firearm in a vehicle is considered concealed, even if it is sitting on the dash. You have to have a CPL to carry any loaded firearm in a vehicle in Michigan. So, no, you don't have to have it in plain sight, but you can if you want as long as you have a CPL. I wouldn't recommend keeping on the dash, though.

People actually do that? I've watched my CD's go flying out the passenger side window, taking a hard left. Couldn't imagine doing that to my glock. Heck, the darn thing might go off when I drop it! :rofl:

I lost a few pairs of sunglasses that way when I was younger. :cool: I've long since learned. I've never seen anybody put their firearm up there, but given the level of common sense in society today, I'm sure some knucklehead would try it.

Don't you know that Glocks are not safe. They can go off all by themselves even if you didn't drop it. :whistling:

In FL, handguns CANNOT be in plain sightThey can if it's in a snapped holster. Not smart but legal.

In Louisiana, a handgun can be concealed in a car anywhere except on your person! Unless you have a CCW permit, then you can hide it anywhere. I like the fact that someone without a CCW permit can keep a weapon under a towel or jacket or shirt or whatever on the passenger seat (if there is no passenger).

I think you missed something. It says "a concealed firearm" in 5.....



concealed is not "in plain sight"

Vehicle carry is so common in Louisiana, LEOs just assume there's a gun in the car and are surprised when there's not.

Traffic violations are not considered crimes under the law.
