What is dense about what I said. Your comment was misinforming. You said to check out FOPA, which is a federal law and not anything to do with AL, and that if I go by that I can travel through states where my permits are valid. Well first of all, all I was trying to find out what AL laws were concerning where the gun had to be in the vehicle both with and without a permit, and if it had to be unloaded or not. Well I've gotten an answer on both now. Second, FOPA is not for states that DO honor your permits, it is for states that do not. But more specifically, FOPA simply allows you to transport guns THROUGH a state that would otherwise be illegal if I were to live there or if that state were to be my ultimate destination. But since, as stated before, that starting Aug. 1st AL will recognize SC permits then FOPA would not even apply in this situation.are you really this dense???
Ok, so going by the wording in that article, "you can have a loaded gun in your car" if you have a permit. It didn't specify where it had to be. So I'm assuming anywhere in the vehicle is game if you have a permit?Here is another take on the new Bama laws. They can be confusing to say the least.

And on a side note, that article sounded to be a bit biased towards the fact that the local sheriff should be able to deny someone the ability to obtain a permit.
