I think that both of them were trying to point out that there is a difference between "carrying" and "transporting" a firearm in a vehicle.
Having read this all the way through I'm not certain if you are carrying an unloaded gun in your car? I'd hate for you to get caught doing that before your license goes through.
It's my understanding that the gun must be unloaded.
You had stated you "unloaded" your handgun, but not that you had complied with the next:
Unloaded (per Ohio's convoluted definition) and:
(1) In a closed package, box, or case;
(2) In a compartment that can be reached only by leaving the vehicle;
(3) In plain sight and secured in a rack or holder made for the purpose;
Therefore they were trying to clarify that:
But (and Werz corrected me on this once in the past) it cannot be on your person, so (3) would not include having the unloaded handgun in a holster on your person even if it is in plain view.
Someguy put emphasis on the gun being unloaded, implying that I would not want to get caught carrying an unloaded gun while getting caught carrying a loaded gun would be fine. It's my understanding that Ohio law requires that I keep my gun unloaded, so I'm unclear on what someguy is trying to say.
You, however, are putting emphasis on the gun being carried. This is not what was being discussed. You are introducing a new angle. You are saying that I should keep my gun in a container and unloaded, while someguy is saying I should keep my gun loaded.
You and someguy are not talking about the same thing and so your comments are causing confusion.
My complaint: While I was a resident of SD on paper, I could carry however I wanted in Ohio. However, now that I have changed nothing other than the paperwork, all of a sudden various forms of carry which were previously perfectly safe, are now egregious dangers to the public.
This does not make any sense at all. I am still the same person. I still reside at the same address. I still carry the same gun. I still drive the same car. Non of this is consistent.
