Default big oops on my part leads to a question

well recently,my roommate whom is on county probation till next year(meaning no guns around him) had a visit from his PO...welll my dumbass had left two boxes of 9mm ammo sitting on the coffee table..needless to say it was awkward that night,no jail time though for my friend n the PO understood that it was my ammo and my mistake..i took the asschewing from the PO when i called him to straten it all out..soo now im forced to keep my ammo in my truck,the gun stays in my truck anyway(PO said it was ok in my truck and even if my friends in my truck because its in my possession at that point)..now my question is,recently ive been wanting a ak47 really bad,just to mess with on weekends,no rambo ****. But im wondering if id be allowed to keep that legally in my truck? i have a PA LTCF(carry permit) but idk how accepting police would be of an assault rifle kept in the vehicle..so could i legally keep an ak47 in my truck with an LTCF?????

before you say "well get a place of your own" i live 5 mins from work and most stores id need to visit so its a good local were i am now and its cheap rent so till i find a better spot im gonna stay here.

I believe that PA issues a license for a concealed pistol...longarms must be unloaded with or without a LTCF, note that it also says transported which suggests to me that you should be able to prove you are travelling to/from the range or hunting.

Automobile carry:
A License to Carry Firearms is issued to carry a firearm concealed on one’s person or in a vehicle within this Commonwealth.
A handgun being transported in a vehicle without a license to carry must be unloaded and must be carried under one of the exceptions listed above under ‘Carry.’ Rifles and shotguns may be transported in a vehicle as long as they are unloaded.
While transporting a firearm without a license, it is up to the person carrying the firearm to demonstrate that one of the exceptions applies. A law enforcement officer may demand such evidence.

ahhh ok looks as if i would need to keep it unloaded in my truck,if i was to leave it in there..well i planned on that anyway..a fully loaded AK in a vehicle all the time might be a bit too suspicious

why would you even consider keeping your firearms in your truck? this sounds like your roommates problem ... that could potentially become your problem should someone decide to break into your truck

if you cannot remedy the roommate, wait until you can

I agree here. Someone hears you have firearms in your truck, it won't be long before they are stolen. And believe me, word will sneak out that there are firearms in your truck.

the thing is the guys like my best friend and just did some stupid ****,served his time,n is a nice guy whose kept his act clean...plus should mention the apt is in his name(hence the legal issue,if my gun/ammo is in the apt its legally in his possession cuz his names on the lease), he got it and then found himself unable to afford rent alone so being the awesome guy i am and needing a place to live i moved in n split the rent..so not much remedy to the roommate situation :/ least till hes off probation early nxt yr. and ik its less than ideal but i like my guns and even making $17.20/hr i find it hard to get the cash to get/furnish an apt..so idk i'll prolly wait on the ak but damn i want one

Check with his PO- if a gun is in the apartment, but under lock and key- to which he does NOT have access, think you have met their requirements. That may be a gun lock, or a locked container. (Hard case, padlock)

I'm with c3shooter on this one. You could even buy a locking gun cabinet. They're a lot cheaper than a full-blown gun safe, and they should satisfy the "locked away" requirement.

this


you need a gun safe type device. check with the po. the feds when it comes to nfa items are satisfied with a gun safe that no one but the registered owners have access to. i dont see how thats any different for a parollee. its a lot safer with them in a more controlled area anyway

Get a different room and roommate. Or live alone. You are leaving yourself vulnerable for all kinds of trouble rooming with the one you have.
