Thread: Carrying in another person's vehicle?

  1. Thank you for the replies. To clarify, as someone mentioned on a longer length trip if I am not driving and wanted to place the firearm in the glove compartment for the duration of travel, I just didn't want her to get in trouble for the firearm being in her vehicle and her not having a CCW permit, as in Maine I believe to have a loaded firearm in the vehicle you need a CCW. I just wasn't sure if someone had to have a CCW and not necessarily the driver.

    If at anytime I was the passenger or even the driver and I had the firearm in the glove compartment, I would absolutely notify the police officer before opening and reaching in.

    It sounds like the situation can be made easier if I just keep it on me at all times.

    Care to cite a specific statute?

    A simple way to avoid that is to not store the insurance card or registration in the same compartment that you want to store the gun in. Put the registration/insurance in an envelope above a sun visor or somewhere else.

  5. Here is your answer. In the state of Maine you do not have a duty to inform an officer of the law. Open carry within a vehicle requires a permit. By putting your firearm in the glove box it is now concealed. Section 11212 states: Motor vehicles and motorboats B. A person may not, while in or on a motor vehicle or in or on a trailer or other type of vehicle being hauled by a motor vehicle, have a cocked and armed crossbow or a firearm with a cartridge or shell in the chamber or in an attached magazine, clip or cylinder or a muzzle loading firearm charged with powder, lead and a primed ignition device or mechanism, except that a person who has a valid Maine permit to carry a concealed weapon may have in or on a motor vehicle or trailer a loaded pistol or revolver covered by that permit. That being said, if you put your firearm in the glove box and you have a CCW you are ok. If you leave the car and your girlfriend stays in the car with the firearm concealed, she is now breaking the law. My question to you is this: Just what the hell did they teach you when you sat to get your CCW? All this material should have been covered in your class. YOU had better be a responsible gun owner and LEARN just what you can and can not do. I'm from OHIO and it's not rocket science for me to look up YOUR laws on concealed/carry. Get informed before you get arrested.

    First of all, minimum requirement for a CCW permit is a Basic NRA Handgun Course (at least here in Maine), which covers nothing of the intricacies of Carry/Conceal Law in a motor vehicle.

    Second, I didn't take that course because I used a copy of my DD-214 instead, which is adequate in Maine for proving proficiency with a firearm.

    I posited my question to this community because while I understand the self defense laws and basic laws on when/where you can't carry, I obviously missed or misunderstood the interpretation of carrying in another person's vehicle. I'm sorry that this offends you so much. I'd much rather ask the question here and have a dialogue with people. You are acting like I'm asking this question while riding in a car hanging out the passenger window with a gun rattling around on the floor trying to see if I can start some trouble with the fuzz.

    Making assumptions and jumping to conclusions is a very endearing quality.

    Cheryl...every state has different requirements for obtaining a ccw. In Virginia we need to take a 10 minute online course that tells us which end of the gun the bullet comes out of and what happens when you pull the trigger. Some states require no training for ccw. They presume you are an adult and will do the right thing. That is the way it should be for every state. Just one question...do you know all of the codes of your state. If not, why not? I am not talking about firearm laws. I am talking about the walking around laws. Okay...firearm laws then. Can you tell me the number of the federal code which says it is okay for a convicted felon to be in possession of a firearm? If the answer is no will you please read and learn the federal code so that you are an informed firearm owner? You wouldn't want to miss inform anyone would you? You can use the internet if you like! That is an open computer test!

    Up to a point I agree with Cheryl (welcome to the forum BTW) regardless of differences is state laws and different requirements to get your permit it is incumbent on the permit holder to know his/ her local laws.

    I can’t speak for anyone else but it annoys the crap out of me when I see some one show up here (a site that has all the links to the relevant laws) and drop a post that essentially says “Hi, I’m too lazy to do the research myself, can I do XYZ with my gun?”

    It’s also quite annoying when someone posts a question pertaining to their specific state law “Can I do XYZ with a gun in Texas?” and we get half a dozen responses like “Well in Nebraska….” Or “Florida’s law is….”.

    If we wanted to know Florida’s law we would have asked about Florida’s law

    I'm from PA... I have no idea whether that is allowed in ME. I could tell you what we could do in PA, but eh... why bother :)

    This post was for Treo's amusement. :)

    I either didn't recall seeing it, or missed it when I went through the laws. I'm not going to go through it again when I can ask here and get a response (which I have, many actually). It has nothing to do with being lazy. Forums are for discussions, and people like to have discussions on a topic. Just because someone may have had a discussion on the topic in the past doesn't mean someone else is satisfied with merely reading it. If you see a thread started that covers a topic you already know about or have discussed, it's pretty easy to just ignore it.

    People on forums love to toss out the "USE THE SEARCH" one liner. If you want the forum to be a dead zone with no activity, turn it into a wiki page so everyone can browse the information like robots.

    You sound like a fun guy to be around though, high-five champ.

    Not in Texas...you can conceal carry in a vehicle, as long as it is concealed from view. License not required in Texas considered extension of your property.
