He mentioned it would be unloaded, trigger locked and cased.
How is that illegal?
Because it's against PA law and he is not covered under the federal FOPA.

Actually, the question would be whether he was going directly to the shooting range at that time of day, instead of to work. Stopping off anywhere while on the way to the range would be illegal under PA law.

I'll apologize if it's already discussed and I missed it. If I am exiting my vehicle (lets assume going to the mall where you cannot OC), does my firearm have to be locked in the trunk and unloaded? Obviously, no one wants to keep a firearm visible in a locked (or unlocked) vehicle.

Legally, I don't know of any law prohibiting the visible storage of a gun, load or otherwise. However, that's asking for a broken window and a stolen gun. Sadly, there aren't a lot of gun lock options for pistols like there are for rifles/shotguns. If it's going in your trunk, I would err on the side of caution and unload it. Just be cautious when you reload and re-holster to not scare folks walking by.
