What to do after accident?
These stories about auto accidents have me thinking; what is the best course of action if you are traveling with a gun and have an accident?
The most interesting situation is 1) traveling in a no reciprocity state 2) using the Federal Firearm Owners Protection Act to travel through the State by keeping the firearm unloaded and locked away. If you have an accident in an urban or suburban area, I assume you would leave the firearm alone and notify the police when they arrive. If the accident results in the firearm being exposed (the locked container is damaged and the firearm falls out), I assume you must secure it. This may be tricky. If the accident occurs in a rural area and you must leave the vehicle to seek help, what do you do? Leave the weapon in the locked case in the car? Carry the locked case with you?
Any insight, especially cases where this has come up before?
