I could not find anything specific to in cars. Though I did not look very hard. I would guess though that loaded in the glove box would be considered concealed. And that requires a permit. In most states, if the gun is in the car being transported, it cannot be loaded. And the ammo should be in a separate box, unless you have a concealed carry permit.

As far as I know any law abiding Missouri citizen 21 years of age or older may carry a firearm in the passenger compartment of a motor vehicle. The firearm may be loaded, unloaded, concealed or not concealed. A conceal permit is not required for this purpose. It is a felony though if you have a gun in the passenger area of your vehicle and are drinking.

However a permit is required if you wish to carry a concealed firearm in public.

Missouri has many local jurisdictions that may have additional restrictions, so it is important to check local statutes before doing so.

Section 571-030 Unlawful use of weapons--exceptions--pe

Quote:
571.030. 1. A person commits the crime of unlawful use of weapons if he or she knowingly:

(1) Carries concealed upon or about his or her person a knife, a firearm, a blackjack or any other weapon readily capable of lethal use; or

...

(10) Carries a firearm, whether loaded or unloaded, or any other weapon readily capable of lethal use into any school, onto any school bus, or onto the premises of any function or activity sponsored or sanctioned by school officials or the district school board.

...

Subdivision (1) of subsection 1 of this section does not apply to any person twenty-one years of age or older transporting a concealable firearm in the passenger compartment of a motor vehicle, so long as such concealable firearm is otherwise lawfully possessed, nor when the actor is also in possession of an exposed firearm or projectile weapon for the lawful pursuit of game, or is in his or her dwelling unit or upon premises over which the actor has possession, authority or control, or is traveling in a continuous journey peaceably through this state. Subdivision (10) of subsection 1 of this section does not apply if the firearm is otherwise lawfully possessed by a person while traversing school premises for the purposes of transporting a student to or from school, or possessed by an adult for the purposes of facilitation of a school-sanctioned firearm-related event.

Yes, we folks, me in particular , do read each and every response. The problem that "you" may have is that I did not click on each and every link to make sure it was not a duplicate of the one I put up. Even if it is, at least there are a lot of people around here trying to help the member out.

Right?
