    Just wondering if this is legal, whether its locked glove box or unlocked. I live in MD, and would like to have one with me. If its not legal, what are the repercussions? Thanks in advance.

    Laws are different in each state. Here in Florida, it is legal to keep a firearm in a glove box without a permit. I have a permit and keep a backup in the center console, and another in my locked briefcase at work.

    IN MD you're pretty much done for IIRC, whether or not your going to be facing felony or misdemeanor charges I don't know.

    Check your State Attorney Generals Website and Sate Police Websites.

    Never take anyone's word on legalities unless they provide a link to the actual laws.

    I believe in Ohio your unloaded weapon must be in a location that requires you to exit the car to get to it.

    In indiana it must be unloaded and anny ammo must be in a seperate compartment of the vehicle that can't be accessed from the passenger compartment.(Ex. gun in passenger compartment ammo in trunk, truck bed etc.) otherwise CCW required. Had it explained the hard way!:sad:

    Sounds like Indiana & Ohio are the same for those carrying without the permit.

    In the trunk. Keeps people from impulsively shooting someone during a fit of road rage. If its in the trunk than your less likely to pursue it.

    Obviously, the law's different in every state. In MD, you're facing some of the nation's worst gun laws, in a state run by a bunch of pusillanimous pansy DemocRATs.

    In many of the Southern states, you can carry a loaded handgun in your glove box, console, or in plain view, without a permit.
