Under this proposed bill, firearm transportation would be criminalized on the way to the range :shock:

Upon reading the bill, it states that if you are lawfully engaged in hunting or target shooting, you're exempted from this proposed offence.
I suppose this would outlaw bringing a rifle or shotgun to your buddy's house to show off or have examined for a potential purchase, or any myriad of benign and lawful purposes. :roll:

This is ridiculous and can't honestly be enforced unless you give a LEO an excuse to search your trunk where you're already supposed to have your firearm cased and unloaded. Ergo, they find your rifle/shotgun and imprison and or fine you up to 10 years and or up to $10,000. What a sham. :x
