Storing a gun in a car, sounds responsible.

Bit of a legal grey area, but in WA if said car was unlocked the owner could be liable if said gun was used In a crime.

Always wondered about that when I see pictures of trucks with gun racks and concealed holsters. Are they intended to carry firearms all the time? Or are they just transportation accessories?

Either way, Mr. Smiles might want to invest in a console vault next time.
