    None are allowed.

    Every now and again, if I was stuck in a town with a gun show, or I drove past a yard sale with rifles and such for sale, I'd stop. Two times I rolled out with one. But I got home and took it out of truck as soon as I could.

    One thing you have to remember about fiearms..Your permit for that firearm is technically only good where the firearm is registered..Here in tx anyone can get a permit to carry but its oly good in Texas...

    Second..if you work at a factory or office ad they so much as find a firearm in your car in the parking lot you are gone. Most trucking companies will term a company driver for a weapon..They don't want you getting mad, walking into the office and blowing away your dispatcher. or another driver.

    well, that's just not true. I am licensed in Texas, and believe me...I carry in other states. It's called "reciprocity". sorry, big word, I know...

    You're anti-gun aren't you.

    Best gun fear-mongering I have heard in a LONG time.

    And a lot of it is WRONG.

    Most states have provisions in place that an employer can't say squat about a firearm if it is properly secured in your vehicle.
    Specifically for Texas.
    You must have some way of doing something with it if you are legally permitted to carry to/from work.

    Texas alone recognizes permits from 41 different states. Even a non-resident permit from them. So if you live in a state it's NOT recognized in like Minnesota, you can get a Florida non-resident permit and still be ok.

    Many states have reciprocity with others so that if you are permitted in another, they accept it in that state.

    www.handgunlaw.us is about the best resource on the web to find such information.

    I am a MN permit to carry instructor as well and inaccurate information like that just tweaks me wrong.

    Leaving uncorrected will lead to a lot of misunderstood issues and people thinking they can't do something when they are legally able to.
