Rifle In Motor Vehicle ?'s

I know it's probably been discussed ad nauseam but I can't find anything current.

As I understand it, in MD, you can legally have a long gun, even an AR, anywhere in your vehicle, cased or uncased, as long as it's unloaded. And also legal to have loaded mags for said gun anywhere in the vehicle.

Am I correct in my understanding ?

Except for cities like a Rockville and other towns whose bans pre-dated statewide preemption against localities making gun laws.

You need to google them.

I think Baltimore requires a rifle to be in a rack or cased

I think Bigfoot 44 knows the cities. I don't recall any except Rockville. I think Leonardtown may be another.

You cannot lean a loaded long gun against your vehicle either.

It's confusing, but the DNR regs apply even if not hunting.

DNR 10-410(c) Regs

Incorrect. loaded mags are ok if not in the firearm

The DNR regs stipulates the rifle must contain the magazine, hence if not in the rifle, legal

Wrong. Loaded magazines are only referred to in commission of a crime. The MSP Director issued a letter some years ago stating that transporting loaded mags is legal.

These regulations only apply when hunting.
