    PA loaded in car ?

    I was reading another thread where they were talking about it being legal to OC in PA. The same thread said while in a car the gun can not be loaded. I thought if you have a CC permit that you can have a loaded weapon while in a vehicle. Am I incorrect?

    If you have your ltcf here in PA, you can carry a loaded weapon in a car. What you read was only if you dont have your license

    Indeed yes - ONLY loaded in vehicle WITH CCW.

    No CCW .......... OC out and about OK (in theory!) .... but then not into vehicle loaded.

    No loaded rifles tho, regardless IIRC.

    Interestingly enough, SC just passed a bill that clarified this issue. For some reason, unbeknowst to the Attourney General, LEO's were hassling and charging drivers who carried on their person, weapons in spite of them having a CWP. The law allowed it but eventualy the legislature passed a specific bill to clearly state this. Normaly, in SC and without a CWP, the weapon had to be in a console, glove box or behind the rear most seat (or in the trunk if you wish) and did not have to be locked. It appears that some LEO's did not believe that a CWP allowed any different. Even though the AG said different. So now its clear. Governor signed this bill into law the 14th of this month.
