Some states (like MN) allow open carry of rifle / shotgun... Question 1- Is open carry of a rifle legal in Indiana? does it matter if it's loaded or unloaded? Before anyone asks I'm not planning on walking thru the local Meijer with an Ak slung over my back, I'm just curious on the law. To my knowledge carrying a loaded long arm in the car is illegal. Question 2- Is it illegal to have a loaded rifle/shotgun in the car? I've got a handgun carry license and I understand that applies only to handguns (open or concealed). I'm just curious about longarm laws. Thanks in advance!
