I'm LEO and I can assure you that many police officers are not well informed on firearms laws. In Massachusetts the laws are confusing to say the least. I once observed a kid convicted of leaving a firearm unattended in a motor vehicle, problem is the law he was charged with pertains to handguns only, not the shotgun he left in his car. If the officer is wrong you may eventually win but that is after the arrest, confiscation, car towed, bail and other legal fees. Most States allow you to travel through with a properly stored firearm if your going hunting, competition or some other event involving firearms in another jurisdiction. There should be full faith and credit between all States in regards to firearms licenses/permits, similar to driver's licenses.
