A guy I know had his shotgun confiscated by police because it was in his truck mounted gun rack and the rack was not locked.

-------
For the sake of argument, I don't know all the details. He lives in a real rural area and says he was no where near a school (I don't know if the Officer even accused of him being in a GFSZ). There may or may not have been underlying circumstances that could have contributed to the gun seizure. I don't know, I wasn't there.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but as I understand it. You may transport an unloaded long gun (Excluding RAW) unlocked in plain sight (truck mounted gun rack for example) as long as you are not in a GFSZ. Right or wrong?


Could one of you super smart guys be kind enough to post the PC this?


Thanks

You have the law correct. Underlying circumstances are also very important.

Can't, because the PC does not address transporting a long gun, unless it's a RAW.

Federal GFSZ requires long guns to be locked up while passing through, but locked in a trunk, locked in a case, or locked in a gun rack all are exceptions.
