Long Guns In Vehicles..

Hey guys, I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong section but I coudn't find an area for law discussion

I'm from NJ (one of the VERY few places worse to live as a firearms enthuiest then MD)

I'm heading down to Ocean City this weekend for the carshow. I know traveling with handguns in MD (like NJ) is strictly regulated and prohibited but I'm curious about long guns...

Basically what I would like to do is throw my loaded, uncased, converted Saiga (.223 with 15 round mags) Behind the backseat in my truck and forget about it. I'm getting conflicting info as to the legality of that and I'm hoping perhaps you fine gentlemen can clear that up for me.

Also, trying to find out that same info for DE (as I'll be driving through there on the way) I do have a UT ccw permit that is valid there but I believe at least with handguns that they must be openly visible while in the vehicle. No clue on long guns (just to clarify, I have no intention of bringing any handguns)

I appreciate any info you can give me, and I'm sorry if this was covered before (I'm sure it has) but I couldn't find anything with the search feature

A sincere thanks from your fellow oppressed gun owner

Loaded long guns are a no-no.

Best to follow the FOPA, since you're interstate.

As far as I know in MD to transport any kind of guns in a vehicle they must be inside a case, unloaded, and the ammo must be kept in a seperate part of the vehicle from the guns.

Appreciate the info guys, FOPA would only apply in DE as MD is my final destination. I got some information online saying that the above only applies to handguns...glad I checked here. Boy how I love having my rights trampled.

Is it true that open carry of loaded long arms is legal? I have no intention to do so but it was one of the things that came up when I was searching..

That's incorrect for MD law. Check the long gun carry thread.

Only regulated

I ride around and have been stopped by msp and local with a rifle (700) uncased on my passenger seat during deer season (unloaded be ammo on same seat) and never been asked anything other than is it loaded.

Also, in order to transport guns in your car in Maryland don't you have to be going to a gun show, gun shop, or a shooting range?
The MD AG made a statement saying open carry of long guns is OK BUT you may still get arrested anyway and be forced to prove it in court if you do.

Don't believe everything the AG says in court.

There is a minefield of grandfathered anti-2A ordinances.
