Wow! I see now that I've been in violation a few times. This doesn't happen very often at all but it has happened which is why I wanted to clear some of those situations up. Guess I won't be doing that anymore. With that said....would I still be in violation to defend my life if the weapon was retrieved from my glove box or bag if I needed to use it? Obviously, the situation would determine if the DA would file charges or not but lets just say I was 100% justified for grabbing my weapon and using it to defend myself. Since the weapon wasn't being carried on my person would that change the legality?
IMO, that’s the dreaded gray area of the law. It would depend on how antsy the DA is and which side your jury swings on. Your best bet, if you’re eligible, is to get your LTC. That way, if caught in public with gun it’ll be legal.
