    Update: My buddy made bond yesterday, and got back home last night. He has to go back to Ohio next week for the arraignment, and the following week to handle the case. He has a local attorney, and it sounds like things will work out OK for him. As for the questions about why he didn't have a CC permit, he had planned to do it for months, but just never had the time to complete the course. I imagine it will be high on his priority list now.

    What were his charges?
    CCW or improper handling?

    Here in Colorado one can carry their firearm loaded in the car with no permit, because the person's vehicle is considered to be a part of their domicile. Lucky us

    You may want to explain to him that breaking laws can cause him legal trouble. Use little words if you have to.

    You may want to have someone explain to you what it is to be an American.

    Carrying a concealed handgun across state lines when you are ignorant of the laws? That's just asking for it.

    You carry a handgun unloaded and locked in a case when you travel? Hope you never need it.

    I try not to be negative or ugly to people, but your entire reply is ate up with it.

    What makes it all the more disappointing is the abundance of "pro-gun" types on here who are so eager to blame the guy arrested for not knowing the law or having a permit.

    This one really takes the cake... I was gonna say something but I think the other posters have covered it!!!

    I think gun owners, whether military arms collectors, sportsmen, or cowboy action, should unify before all of us have to find another hobby!

    I really hope this guy is shown some leneancy.

    Just to be clear, had this guy possessed a ccw permit, he could've had the gun loaded & concealed and been okay under OH law?

    There's no question, you speed on Ohio freeways at your peril.
    Ohio isn't Michigan - Ohio's top speed would get you run over in MI.

    True, true.

    We don't have the whole story here. Was it a local cop, Highway Patrol, etc ?

    How did the cop know he had the gun? It's not their general rule to search your car.

    Reading is one of those life skills that sometimes helps add information and puts things in context.

    I think you missed the most obvious point. The officer went home safe that night. :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Basically, most everyone here is willing to surrender someone elses rights / life to the govt. They know for sure they are not one of the bad guys and it wont happen to them....

    Wait...I think I saw a writing somewhere before about this topic...let me think about it....it may come to me...

    Its coming to me...its was something written by Martin Niemöller...

    If he is convicted of a felony involving a firearm, he can kiss that goodbye.

    To me, it just seems like common sense. Having a loaded weapon in your car isn't the same thing as a missing mudflap.

    The laws for transporting firearms between (within) states are pretty easy to find.

    Would most posters here agree that we should be able to have most weapons anytime? I think so.

    Unfortunately, that's not the way it is.

    We have to live in the actual world , not what we think is ideal or "right" , even though it may well be.

    Lecture over.
