In the absence of a suitable container, you may secure the unloaded handgun in the locked trunk of a passenger car. Ammunition may be kept in the same container or trunk, but the handgun must remain unloaded with no rounds in the cylinder and no loaded magazines in the magazine well.

I'll try to find the exact vehicle code for this as well.

Todd.
The rounds can't be attached to the firearm in anyway or form including the shell holders you see on shotguns. Shells attached this way = loaded firearm.

Thanks, updated
absolutely correct. But also my experience in SO Cal they don't need a reason citing reasonable suspicion or what not.

Question on window tint. I have my drivers and passenger side tinted. I am military and have my vehicle registered in Nevada. The tint is legal for Nevada, but not California. Can I be fined for the tint?

From what I've heard, it goes by the state you are in, not where you're from...So, if you get pulled over and it's too dark, they can give you a fix-it ticket...$25, and get it fixed and signed off...

Just sent in my $25 for my no front plate fix-it ticket ;(

I don't think they can enforce the front plate for out of state cars. I'm originally from Delaware. They won't give you a tag for the front. The only way you get a second plate is if you report the original one stolen.

Incorrect. Regardless of where the car is registered, he can be cited for illegal tint in California.

Also many guns that are ILLEGAL TO SELL are at the same time LEGAL TO OWN provided they are configured correctly.

Ahh okay, sorry about that . Yeah gun laws are so confusing in my opinion. The AR-15 Lower laws come to mind.

I thought it was my understanding that as long as the vehicle itself is registered in said state (to stick to the example the car is registered in Nevada with Nevada plates) that because the window tint is legal in Nevada you can't be cited for it in California during your visit. I may be incorrect on that but to use a personal example I had a friend of mine who moved to Arizona and registered is SRT10 in AZ with his new address. He came back to CA to pickup the last of his stuff and was pulled over for window tint however after the officer noticed the car was registered in Arizona he let him go and just told him to watch his windows during his visit here. Anyone in the line of work to give us a final ruling on this? (i.e. law enforcement officers whether it be City, County, or State?)

See thats the way I understand it. But I'm guessing its only if you're just visiting/under a few months. If you have recently moved and its registered out of state I'm sure they have a time frame or grace period for when you need to become state compliant if your vehicle will be permanently in the state.

depends on how dark you go.

if you black them out to where they're only visible at night, you're gonna get busted by the fuzz.

I would ask someone who knows the gun laws here in California. I believe as long as the firearm is unloaded and transported in a locked container then you are okay. But this is a Camaro forum.. so yeah...

They can issue fix-it tickets for it but would probably only ticket you during the day since the taillights are clearly visible at night...I know here in Bakersfield the Police only use tinted lights as an excuse to pull you over if they suspect you've been drinking but in all reality (even though they really don't) laws will vary by your location as far as what they'll ticket you for. Hope this helps a little...
