Hi guys, Im looking at purchasing a shotgun in order to shoot trap, but live at a university. Last year there was a case in the Kentucky courts about possessing firearms in a vehicle on campus (Obviously you cant take them out of the vehicle- as doing so would be incredibly stupid). The link to the appealate case is here: http://opinions.kycourts.net/sc/2010-SC-000762-TG.pdf I notice in there it mostly refers to CCW, and as I am not yet 21, and thus unable to posses a CCW permit, and wish to shoot at ranges down here in Louisville, I wish to keep the firearm unloaded, bolt open, safety on, in a locked gun case, or partially disassembled in a carrying case in my trunk. As the trunk of the vehicle is a "Manufacturer installed storage compartment", and the weapon is not a handgun, would it still fall under the appellate ruling? If so, what would be the best way to go about this, should I inform campus PD of my decision and provide legal documentation of my lawful owning of the gun, or would it be better to simply keep documentation, and keep it in the trunk. I would love to store it, but since I live at the dorm, and my parents and most of my friends living at home are two hours away, and my parents have a no firearms policy inside their walls, what would be the best solution? I am a relatively new shooter, and just want the ability to readily practice at a nearby range with my own firearm.
