Tip of the Week: Securing a Handgun in an Unattended Vehicle
On September 26, 2016, the Governor signed Senate Bill 869 into law. This law, which goes into effect January 1, 2017, requires any person leaving a handgun in an unattended vehicle to properly secure it per section 25140 of the Penal Code. In order for the handgun to be properly secured per this law, the person must do one of the following:
1.Lock the handgun in the trunk of the vehicle.
2.Lock the handgun in a locked container and place the container out of plain view.
3.Lock the handgun in a locked container that is permanently affixed to the vehicle’s interior and not in plain view.
For purposes of this law, a vehicle is considered unattended “when a person who is lawfully carrying or transporting a handgun in a vehicle is not within close proximity to the vehicle to reasonable prevent unauthorized access to the vehicle and its contents.”
The term “locked container” is defined in section 16850 of the Penal Code and states;
“a secure container that is fully enclosed and locked by a padlock, keylock, combination lock, or similar locking device. The term “locked container” does not include the utility (center console) or glove compartment of a motor vehicle.”
Take care, and be safe.
