I live in AZ and as far as I know, there's no prohibition against having a long gun in a vehicle, at least not yet. I spent a few years living near Nogales. Usually if I went off roading, I was probably going to be doing some shooting too, so I would have at least a couple of rifles.
These days, I don't travel too much, but given the current state of things, if I'm going long distance in state, I'm sure that I'll have something additional with me.

call it family tradition spanning decades.......shotgun behind the seat.

In my youth it was a single shot. Nowadays its a riot gun. I would like to try another AR7 but i have already been snake-bit three times.....maybe the 4th time will be a charm.

I've had two AR7's. The first one was a trade in at a gun shop I where I worked weekends. I cost me a total of $10 and wasn't worth a plug Nickle! Couldn't get more than a couple shots without a miss feed.
I picked another one up late 80's in a trade. It was actually pretty good as long as you didn't feed it cheap range fodder.
It was flawless with CCI Stingers. Sadly, it didn't survive the house fire a few years ago. Something about plastic and heat. I had it broken down in the stock. After the fire it looked like the stock was shrink wrapped around the barrel and action.

Lets just say if I am officially stoped and asked "sir do you have any firearms in your vehicle?", its going to be a rather long conversation. Don't worry. I won't have to post it here... you'll maybe catch it on the news.

I do a lot of 4X4 off roading in the middle of "not where I want to die hungry, and too far to walk out" so there is usually one survival rifle in my rig. Usually it's a M6 Scout 22 Hornet on top and 410 on the bottom. But a few years ago I built a Hatfield 410 with a 10 inch 9mm rifled barrel insert in the wood stock. May add a simple 22 LR insert later.

It has been sitting in the rifle rack next to the M6 lately.

But I also carry a tree saw, fold out camp stove, emergency blankets, fishing poles, emergency shovels and tools to fix my truck with. Not to mention a 2 meter ham radio.

Both rifles have slings with ammo pouches built on, so they usually have around 30 rounds per caliber tied to them.

As far as 2 legged predators I am always armed on my person, but do carry extra magazines in the vehicle in a mag carrier sling that looks like a purse. Sling, flap and everything. I will avoid a protester rally if I can, but understand how things get out if hand over nothing. So I am prepared for the worst and enjoy the best.

Pamranoid? Not really.... But Prepared? You bet!
Been lost in the mountains when I was 18. Spent 10 days hiking my way back to civilization with nothing but a 22 rifle to feed me with. Long Story, but it taught me a good lesson. Never leave home unprepared for the worst that could happen. Or as reasonable so.
