You'll never know when you'll need it.

Every state is different with this so it would be best to find a local cop and ask them.. But over all it seems pretty straight forward not on school campuses of any kind.. outside of schools sure as long as it is in a lock container with the ammunition stored away from the container. some states see a trunk as a lock container others dont while some see a locked trunk as ok but you are now transporting said shotgun so various lock out devices are needed.. each state is different. the odds are you will never "need" it if you do due to state laws getting access to it will hinder any action of you trying to be a hero. most of these shootings are high powered rifles and hand guns both have double the range of a shotgun. So either go ask a cop or do specific research for your state and or county and city..

In my state (NC) that would generally be legal while you are off campus, but illegal once you drive onto campus. It is not legal to have a gun on school property and that includes both primary and secondary schools. Check the laws for where you live to be sure, but the simple answer is "almost certainly not legal."

dont think because you ask a cop something that what he says is the truth... ive been lied to / miss informed by "police officers" MANY times... just look up the gun carry lawn in your state, most gun friendly states let you keep it anywere in the car, loaded or unloaded.. you ju7st cant have it concealed on your person (on you)

trunk or anywere else in the car should be fine.. my mossberg pump stays in my car with me everywere i go. i like to keep mine on the floor of my back seat under a blanket though :]

Nope.

yesh, don't get mad when birds poop on your car, get even!

What the hell are you gonna do?
