From my understanding the part with the serial number is the firearm. In pieces or not. When you buy an ar15 lower new you have to go to a ffl. All the other parts are just parts.

....but why would you want to play "Where's Waldo" in the event that you need your pistol? I don't recall for sure but I believe there's no distinction on whether or not the firearm is assembled. Since open carry is legal, why not just set it on your dash or passenger seat, fully assembled, cocked-locked-and-ready-to-rock?

so I read through this topic and I think I have a good grasp on most of it but I do have 1 question.. if I an OC'ing and decide to stop at a place that does not allow OC... I am thinking I must unload my gun and act as if im transporting while its in the vehicle? does that sound right? I am thinking if I just lock the loaded gun in the case technically I am concealing a weapon...

Location, location, location.

It depends from WHERE to WHERE you are talking about 'transporting'.

The frame is the firearm.

In DE, concealing the frame in the center console would get you into a lot of trouble. I don't recall anything in the law that says you can conceal a firearm that has components missing, even though the components are critical to its operation.

Three conditions must be met:

1. You're a Delaware resident.
2. You have a Delaware (in-state) CCDW.
3. You're driving in the state of Delaware.

If all three of those conditions are met, you're exempt from the Federal Statute:

http://www.deloc.org/deloc/docs/batf_school_zone.pdf

Quote:
One exception is where the individual possessing the firearm "is licensed to do so by the State in which the school zone is located or a political subdivision of the State. . ." See 18 D.S.C. § 922 (q) (2) (B) (ii).



Rob/Wynder,
Maybe someone already ask this, and sorry if I ask again, but I am new to this OC thing.
How about if you live less than 1000 feet away from the school, meaning you live within the school zone? If I OC that means even driving home will get me in trouble?
Thanks,

Off topic but the Gun Free School Zone is an adder in DE, as in an added charge if you already violated the law. You still have federal free travel laws to go from one place you are legal to another. That and of course private property as well. But I am not a lawyer.

Please excuse my ignorance on this issue. I have a pickup truck, crew cab. If I put my gun(s) in a locked case underneath (or on?) the back seat, with the magazines up front in the glove box, am I legal? I just don't want the case sitting in the bed, etc. Thanks for your time.

Welcome Vic - yes, that would be legal in DE (as well as PA)
But in DE, if you are out and about, if your handgun is in plain view, it can be anywhere in the truck and can be loaded without restriction.

Ok one more dumb question. If my wife and I are both OC, and we get in a car, she is in the passenger seat she is allowed to hold both guns in the open correct?
