But still, it's no different than if somebody rolls a vehichle and the gun goes flying out the window. Seems like an unfair prejudice against bikers. I had no idea that so many folks were riding and armed.
Update: I have spent a considerable amount of time today on the Indiana government website regarding Motor Vehicles and firearms regulations. I can find no mention in regulations regarding motorcycles and firearms other than carrying firearms in or on "off road vehicles", and then it stipulates in subsection 9 that it doesn't apply to anybody that has a valid carry permit. It could be that I was reading an old driver manual. My current DL license was issued in September 2011 and that is when I remember reading about carrying firearms on motorcycles. I just picked up a new driver's manual yesterday since I am reading up to get my chauffeur's license, and there is no mention of motorcycles and carrying in it as well. I typically carry with the Crossbreed Supertuck,but looks like my shoulder holster will be getting a little more use now.
