When I got my CCW I was surprised to find out about this. I'd have thought carrying a concealed firearm in the glove box would have gotten you in serious trouble if you didn't have a permit.

Missouri now permits any person who is at least 21 years old to transport
a concealable firearm in the passenger compartment of a motor vehicle.
No concealed carry endorsement is required. Under the old law, the
peaceable journey exception to the unlawful-use-of-a-weapon law permitted
travelers on a continuous peaceable journey to carry a concealed
weapon. The peaceable journey exception is still in the law, and may apply
in circumstances where the new law does not (i.e. if the person is less
than 21 years old).
Note: This law does not affect the law prohibiting possession of a concealable
firearm by a dangerous felon.

It just goes to show though that it can pay to know the laws. I'd have never known the Peaceable journey law even existed had I not taken the CCW course. I'm willing to bet only a very small fraction of Missouri residents know about it.

Ohio does not honor that rule here is a section of the Ohio Revised Code " No person shall knowingly transport or have a loaded firearm in a motor vehicle in such a manner that the firearm is accessible to the operator or any passenger without leaving the vehicle."
so if you live in Ohio dont try this
