So is an unloaded firearm still a firearm? Was it registered to him? What's the problem here?

Gee let's see. What if one of your kids had an "unloaded" firearm in their possession? Where ever it may turn up. Would you feel comfortable? Really?

Being 46 years of age is far from being a kid. I think the point the poster was making was that the SA failed to elaborate on what crime had been commtted.

You can carry an unloaded firearm in your vehicle as often as you wish, provided it is in a locked carrying case. Feel comfortable now?

im just speculating here but i'd think the weapon was not registered to the man, if it was he would probably not have been arrested.

It's not legal to store a firearm in your vehicle unless you are transporting it between authorized locations: PLACE TO KEEP AND CARRY You may keep firearms and ammunition in your home, office, or place of sojourn (where you lodge or sleep). You may transport directly between these and a firing range, gun class, meeting or show, the police station, hunting, a gunsmith, and a firearms dealer. Guns must be transported unloaded, in rigid lockable receptacles or commercial gun containers that completely enclose the firearm (a commercially produced gun sock meets the criteria). Unloaded means no ammunition in the chamber, cylinder, or magazine, if inserted in the firearm. Vehicles carrying loaded guns are subject to seizure and forfeit.

What you write above is exactly correct and we must assume HPD is aware of the law(s) regarding transporting of firearms. Therefore, we must assume the driver did something unlawful to have been stopped. SA fails to elaborate that reason, leaving readers nothing except to highlight firearms possession. Why would SA do that? That isn't exactly professional journalism.
