The other thread discussing a gun mount below the steering column got me wondering the following, but I didn't want to drift that thread.
If someone has to leave their CC handgun in their car (say you're entering a building such as the post office where it is not allowed), what, if any legal requirements apply for securing the weapon? Is locking it in the glove compartment insuficient under the law? Beyond what the law might require, are there any established "should have"'s that weren't followed by others when leaving their CCW in their car that caused the issuing judge to pull their permit?
Is there any method of storing your weapon in your car that will permit you to travel with your vehicle into an area where carrying isn't permitted (e.g., school campus, state park) without being in violation of the law? Basically, is there a way to lock up/secure/strip your weapon and leave it in the car so you are not deemed to be carrying in a prohibited area.
Thanks in advance.
