    He's now decided he can take it back with us to Texas and he can give it to his Dad or our BIL. I really don't want it going to either of those people- our BIL has two young kids, and his parents house is where their main childcare takes place. They don't need guns in their homes either. (To my knowledge, there are not any right now.) I also don't want it in the car for a 17 hour drive to Texas. Guns make me nervous, even when they aren't loaded. I'm not sure why...
    Hon, it's not going to go off if you look at it funny. Especially if it's unloaded. I promise.

    Yeah, but what if as we are driving through another state their legislature passes a law that makes it illegal to have it without a license, and then we are pulled over by a cop for speeding and they find that we have a gun in the car?

    Well, if Northern Virginia counts as the south. We're sort of right on the border. No, it's probably just that I'm turning into my mother, who calls everyone "Honey" whether she's known them for five seconds or fifty years.

    As you're driving through a state, a law just happens to pass RIGHT THEN? Is that what you're asking? And do cars normally get searched for guns if you get pulled over for speeding? And how often do you even get pulled over for speeding? You are needlessly stressing on this one.

    Remember, a gun is an object just like any other object. If it's unloaded and locked, then it's perfectly safe. It's not going to attack anyone. You do have a lock for it, right? And a case that locks? I'm not sure of your state's laws, but if you have all your proper permits/documentation and it's locked and in a locked case, you should be fine driving with it. But in all honesty, if you're this stressed about it, call your police department today and they will advise you.

    I located an old gun of my father's in the back of a wardrobe and contacted the local police department. (This was while my father was still alive but not in possession of all his faculties.) They sent a constable out to the house and although my mother said it was barely powerful enough to do damage to a squirrel, the officer was as serious as he could possibly be, checking it out, writing a detailed report that I had to sign and then thankfully removing it from the house for good.
