so everywhere/everyone ive asked about this has told me a different story.
the question is what id the proper way to transport longguns, handguns WITH ammo (I dont mean loaded) because some tell me that they have to be seperated from eachother while in transport, and or both locked up.


?????:confused:

Other than for unloaded open carry (which is inadvisable given the current environment), handguns must be in a locked container and unloaded. The trunk counts only if the trunk is not accessible through a folding rear seat.
Ammo does NOT have to be contained in a separate container.

Registered assault weapons must also be in a locked container and unloaded.
Long rifles and shotguns do not have to be in a locked container, but they do have to be unloaded.

There is a specification for school zones, where within 1000ft all weapons must be in a locked container, but I am not 100% positive on that requirement for rifles.

Longgun:
Unloaded

Handgun:
Unloaded
In a locked container
Ammunition MAY be inside the same container, but not in a position from which it can be fired (ie: not in a magazine inside the gun, or a round in the chamber)
There is no requirement that ammunition be in a separate container, locked or otherwise.

The state law exempts long guns, but the federal GFSZ law does not. So long guns also need to be in a locked container while traveling through a school zone:

This has been answered but one other thing i want to mention if school zones are a non issue in your area then you could conceal a long gun without a locked container since they non concealable firearms. handguns either UOC or a locked container. Yes ammo can be next to each other, even mags loaded. They can be touching just not put into a position to be fired from.
