I don't say this often....

Screw the law. Which would you rather, having to drive to the jail house and sign some bond papers, or having to drive to the morgue and identify her corpse?

A gun is part of the luggage on EVERY road trip state side. Don't get stopped by the cops don't admit to having it and don't give permission to search the vehicle if you do and everything will be fine.

(If it gets used, obviously that's different and honesty is the best policy then.)

Tough position. State laws trump, make sure you understand them. Commie state doesn't take kindly to people that don't swallow the rhetoric.

It doesn't matter what they think. Even in the commie state they can't search your car without probable cause.

As long as the gun is out of sight in the vehicle and stored somewhere other than with the registration papers there's no chance of the officer seeing it on a stop.

As long as she doesn't stink of narcotics there isn't really any other reason for them to search the car.

Why no get her her own gun registered to her? I don't know CA law but in Illinois I can loan my wife my gun and it has to be in a case. You can have loaded mags in the case but not in the gun. Illinois has no gun registration but we do have to register gun owners.

What is this "gun registration" thing you speak of? Any State that does not trust its law abiding citizens with firearms deserves to be in your rear view mirror.

Escape while you can!

Yes, it may be illegal but there isn't one law that's going to keep her safe if someone stops to break the law and try to rape or kill her. Only thing I'm worried about is if she gets pulled over and the cops discover that there is a firearm in the trunk that's locked away and separated from the ammo but is not registered to her. I was only wondering if someone who may live here in Cali may be familiar with this and would know that it would or would not be legal for her to travel with it if it belonged to her husband.
dude! TMI! I'm sure you meant on her. otherwise, we may need to move this to the Trail......

Even if she can legally carry in the trunk, separated from ammo, and all that.

Then why even have her take it with her? Can she carry it with her when she is at her destination? Can she carry it into the Cracker Barrel she stops at on the way? How about refueling?
If she needed it she still has to open the trunk, grab the gun, grab the ammo, load the gun.

And a robbery can happen faster than the time it took to read this.
I have to agree with Dan here. Find a LEGAL means for her to defend herself and your son. I suggest a 4 D cell Maglight or something along those lines. Yes, my wife and I both have our CCW Permits, but our 16 YO daughter can not legally carry. Hence the matching trio of Maglights in all 3 of the trucks we own. Not as good as a pistol, but LE doesn't question why you have it.

This ^^ is why we are moving out of NY at the end of the school year. Leave while you can, you will be happier elsewhere. i am originally from So-CAL, and have lived many other places. I can vouch for the fact that the grass si greener elswhere. At least the LEGAL grass is.

That's exactly the same way I feel!
