    Just wondering what you make of the wording of this law.

    It is illegal to carry a firearm in or on a motor-driven vehicle with a shell in the chamber. The entire cylinder of a revolver is considered the chamber, requiring the revolver to be completely unloaded.

    If I am reading this correctly that means that I could have shells in the magizine as long as I have no shells in the chamber. I am just wondering if I am correct.

    Well, it is open to interpretation. They have clearly stated what their intentions are with regard to a revolver. There is no statement regarding semi automatic pistols. Absence of something does not mean it's ok. I agree with your thoughts but for your sake, make sure.

    Sorry, I am meaning the use of semi-automatic and/or pump shotguns. Sorry for the confusion.

    Hmm...since they apparently felt the need to go so far as to state what constitutes the legal definition of a chamber in the case of a revolver, I hereby rule that their attendant failure to do so in the case of other types of arms indicates they felt no such clarification was necessary, which to me means you are ok.


    But that is worth exactly what you paid for it, & may land you in jail (lawyers' kids still have to eat, you know).

    Hear in massachusetts all guns must be unloaded and locked with aproved trigger lock or locked case. unless you have a concealed carry permit. The handgun must be on your person. Best bet is to carry your guns without any ammo in or near it. Gun in case , ammo in bag.

    Take the class and get the tote permit and ask the trainer during the class for his/her interpretation and then check with an attorney as already suggested.

    Without a permit in FL you have to make at least 3 distinct moves before a gun is able to be fired if you don't have a tote card. If you have the card pull and shoot.
