While many weapons used for hunting are protected under the law, a person in possession of any type of firearm that is loaded or concealed could face serious consequences. A weapon can be concealed even if it is not locked away. For example, if you have a loaded long gun behind the back seat of an extended cab, the weapon is concealed and you could face criminal charges.
