Let me start off by saying I know the smart thing to do here would be to make sure the weapon comes out of the car before the golf clubs go in, and that is certainly my intention. But, for the sake of argument, let's say that for whatever reason it slips my mind. Then, let's say I get stopped by highway patrol, county, or city law enforcement and they want to take a quick look inside my car. I do have a valid NC concealed/carry permit and the firearm in question is 100% legal and registered. What is the worst that can happen? I have researched this already and gotten conflicting information regarding reciprocating permits and non resident status. Speaking in hypotheticals here, as I said earlier: I certainly plan on exercising due dilligence to NOT have said weapon..but wondering what worst case scenario might be.
