Incorrect for the statements made about SC and NC.
I live in SC and CWP or not, you can still have a loaded handgun in the glovebox or console, but not in any door pocket.
As for NC, I recently traveld there and called the NC DOJ to clarify their stupid laws. Basically, if it is in the glove box, it is concealed (lets assume you don;t have a CWP)...if it is out on the dash, it is considered a "threat to a LEO."
I have a CWP for SC and NC carry, so I just had it in the console and took my chances that that classified as "on or about my person."
bryant is correct. In South Carolina,it is legal to carry a loaded weapon in a glove box, console, or any compartment that closes. It does NOT have to be locked. This applies whether you have a CWP or not. It is not OK to carry in a backpack, bag, purse, etc. It has to be a closed compartment like listed above.
