Should it be illegal for you to have a concealed weapon while driving your car. This could be in your jacket, glovebox, under the seat, next to the seat under a shirt etc... My thinking is a hidden weapon is of no danger unless it is picked up and aimed at someone. Two related experiences: I had a pistol in company car and was rear ended. I told the HP I had a pistol that was loaded (i think) and had a trigger lock on it and it was in a zippered sleeve under some work manuals in a box. He told me that I was violating the law. I told him I thought could be hidden as long as it was secured(locked up). He said it could not be concealed. I told him I would remove it to the open. He said we would talk later, but we never did. Nothing else was ever said. I even told the sheriff deputy about it and he acted surprised that I was offering this info and even said to leave alone he didn't need to see it. I told him I was just alerting him to the fact, but he really didn't seem to care. Another story I am stopped one night about 10:30 for a license check on a SC hwy in the middle of nowhere. I told the HP as soon as I opened the window and handed him my DL "I have a pistol by my side" (between the seat/console). He then asked me to place hands on wheel, reached in to get the pistol and asked if I had a CCW. I told him the pistol was not concealed. He asked why I had it. I told him to protect the family while traveling. He began to tell me that SC you could only transporrt a firearm in the trunk or glovebox and asked where I wanted him to put it. I told him in the glove box which is where I wish to put it but in NC we can't do that. He told me had he been a rookie I could be spending the night in jail. He said it also helped that I told him of the pistol as soon as I opened the window. He was really cool headed as most have been when I am in this situation. One or two may have been a little anal about it.
