I can't believe this. I actually went to my car to see if there really is a hidden compartment but there is not. I assume you are referring to the driver's side glove box which is that large compartment with a very obvious latch handle to open it.

Not too smart in NY unless you're one of a small few that can have a permitmin the big city. I don't speed in NY let alone stash a piece.

Upstate NY, I have a full carry conceal permit. However I am not allowed in the 5 boroughs with it, so when I am there, I do not carry.

Oh yes we will. We won't let our boob of a president disarm us.... History proves numerous times that a nation that is disarmed turns either communist or into a dictatorship... Many references and proof out there.. We have a better chance of never seeing a Twinkie again.

Japan and England no issues. 10000 deaths in the US by guns, and yes I own two. But something has to be done. Oh sorry we need to talk cars(:
