If you commute by car, then the "traveling" defense is irrelevant; you can have a gun in your car. If you commute by bicycle, or some other non-motor vehicle mode of travel, then you'll have to look to the case law for your appellate jurisdiction. A short commute that doesn’t cross a county line has no chance of being held to be “traveling.�

Chas.

But what chance do you think it has of being presumed to be traveling? ;-)


I'm not sure I understand your question, but if you're talking about the "traveling presumption" that passed in 2005 (HB823), then it has been repealed with the passage of HB1815.

Whoops, you're right.
