"Do not consent to search" doesn't work if he can see the gun case, or if you answer "Yes" to the question "Do you have any guns".
If you have a gun and he knows it, he is within his rights to perform an e-check to verify that it is unloaded and being transported legally.
He does not have the right (though will probably do it anyways) to run the serial number unless he has RS/PC that you have or intend to commit a crime.
That said, it's still a pretty loose definition of "commit a crime", IE, the gun is locked in your trunk, but the rear seats fold down without a key and the gun is not in it's own locked container. While he may let you slide with a warning that the trunk is not adequate with the folding rear seat if you are cool and cooperative, he does have you on "committed a crime" and it would give him the legal authority to run the serial numbers.
