Texas also has a safe transit law where travelers may keep a loaded weapon in the vehicle without needing a Carry Permit. New Mexico considers your vehicle an extension of your home. I know these things cause I checked them out when my dad in Texas told me he was ready to pass on his guns to us kids. I had an arsenal in my SUV on the drive back home to Arizona and I was nervous about leaving the car alone on the trip.
