Would something like this with a cheap lock in the back seat of a car be considered fine for the school gun free zone?

Should probably wait for someone more in-the-know than I, but I'd say yea. It's a container, and its locked.

Yep.

I don't think there is any "real" PC to define "locked container".

Why are you locking you long guns again?

I was just wondering if i were to go by my friends house since he lives very close to a school. I figured it was considered a container but i wanted to make sure incase i was wrong.

It encloses the gun. It's a container. Soft or hard case doesn't matter.

I use a bug-out bag which is cordura nylon, with pockets and compartments, and the middle compartment is where I put my mags, bullets (in a stay-fresh Glad plastic container), and gun when i take it shooting. I use a small luggage type lock on the zippers to comply with it being "locked." GOod to go.

I'm concerned with how 'well' you have to lock them.

For example in the OP's case above, could you put a cable lock thru the metal handle thingies and call it good?

None of my nylon cases have places where you can lock the zipper closed.

It doesn't have a metal "d-ring" at the bottom and a place to slip in a lock ?

I think the zipper puller is solid. I remember thinking i'd have to drill it. I'll have to check later.

The Federal Gun Free Schools Act requires it if you travel within 1,000 ft of a school.
