Note sure if this has been discussed here. I was talking to a couple of people this weekend who hadn't heard about it, so I thought I'd toss it out there....

Beginning July 1, you may carry a handgun in your vehicle (cocked/locked/ready to roll).

Senate Judiciary Committee 1, Amendment No. 1 to SB1774

That section is really vague in definition. Not really sure if it means that any person can carry a loaded firearm in their vehicle or if its just clairifing the vehicle usage. Not heard of any laws changing regarding this. But interested to know!

You may have to read 39-17-1307 for it to make sense. It means you can carry in your vehicle without a permit.

Yes, the way I understand it.

The idea that you will be able to do this without a permit is not true. Please don't get caught without a permit.

Yeah, some boat. Curious to say what the official word on this is.

Another thing to be mindful of if this does allow carry in your vehicle without a permit, is don't expect every LEO in the state to be aware of the law. You might want to carry a copy of these laws with you if you intend to have a firearm in your vehcile without a permit.
