    Question for people who don't carry

    If you do not have a permit can you have a loaded gun in your house?

    The broad answer IIRC for all states is yes ... home and business.

    I cannot right now think of exceptions other than perhaps DC - not sure if we should also include Chicago, NYC and some other major cities.

    In Massachusetts you need a permit of some kind to own a rifle or handgun.

    NY: a permit is needed to have a pistol. The permit allows you to have a loaded gun anywhere in the state outside of NYC
    no permit is needed for a loaded long gun

    Yep, when I lived in Illinois you couldn't even by ammo without your id card. Sad, really.

    In Ohio it is my understanding that if you can legally own the firearm you can keep it in loaded condition. I have never heard or seen anything to suggest otherwise. Although C-bus had something requiring them locked up or something before pre-emption.

    P95,
    You should definatly include NYC, Chicago and other cities
    In NYC, you can't own a handgun with out a permit, it isn't a permit to carry, it's a premise permit, needed to even be able to target shoot at a range. Used to be no permit was needed for long-guns but not sure that holds true anymore.

    Not sure what the requirements in Chicago or other cities are (I know IL requires a FOID card, but not sure if Chicago has additional requirements for on premise or not)

    Kansas: in the house in any condition you want it. Concealed, open, loaded, painted purple with daisies in the barrel. Same in a business. In a car, unloaded and in a container (ziplock bag will do) unless licensed.

    In Texas its against the law to NOT have a firearm in your house


    seriously now....
    in your house....as long as its a legal firearm...lock and load (actually anywhere on your property or any property that is under your control you don't need a permit to carry concealed or open)
