You're right, it doesn't allow a search, it allows an inspection. However, expect the inspection to turn into a search of your rifle: checking the serial, type and configuration. Case law has been posted that officers can check your gun out if they spot something that likely holds a firearm. Disobedience results in arrest on suspicion of unlawfully carrying a loaded firearm, at which point it will be searched.
I really hate this law, and don't plan on giving consent.
Possession of a gun case doesn't always equal possession of a gun. In any case, possession of a gun doesn't equal probability of a crime (on its own, anyway).
