Hold on. If that was the case what was the PC for the arrested. If the clips were on their hip then that is considered an unloaded firearm. A loaded firearm per definition consist of a weapon with a loaded magazine in the magwell capable of firing a round.The law states the mag and firearm need to be seperate but it does not state how far apart. If i am wrong please feel free to let me know.
On another note. Is their any law that entered in 2013 that states magazines can no longer be carried loaded in a vehicle? I know weapons need to be in a locked container.
