So I know it is not legal to drive around with a loaded long gun in a car, however I have heard of people having a concealed carry license and do not have either the money or otherwise are not able to obtain a pistol at that time, so as a substitute for the time being, because they live in a bad neighborhood or whatever the personal reasons are, they carry a loaded short barreled (short barreled within legal limit 18-20 inches long) shotgun in their car with them, right up front kinda like the shotguns they got up front in the State Trooper Tahoes.....is this legal? I understand their reasoning, "I am legally able to carry a weapon loaded in my car if it is a pistol, I do not have a pistol yet so a shotgun is my next best bet." sooo, legal?
They did not say they carried it around with them just in their car for whatever reason.
Also as a side note I have heard of people carrying shotguns in oversized leg holsters right in walmart, not sure what state this was happening in but what the heck is that about? I would have to say shotguns in exposed leg holsters in NY is totally illegal right? You cannot open carry and long gun?
