This might have been brought up before, but I couldn't find an exact thread about it. A friend in Washington got pulled over in her new car because she didn't turn her lights on at dusk, silly her, the new car didn't have automatic on lights. Her boyfriend has a CPL, and had locked his handgun in the glove box, I don't know if it was loaded or not. Boyfriend was not in the car, just my friend and her mother. Mother to be helpful, asked if the insurance info was in the glove box, my friend quickly said no, it is NOT IN THERE, knowing handgun was locked in glove box, and found insurance and proof of reg. in console. What are the laws regarding this, IF the LEO asked friend to open glove box?? What could happen to friend? I'm pretty sure if boy friend was IN the car, had a CPL, that he is legal to have the handgun in glove box, but if not in the car what are the ramifications to friend not having a CPL if handgun is in car glove box??
