yes. this is a stupid law and the gun amendment makes it even dumber.April 18, 2012 7:00 pm at 7:00 pm #483441
Oh dear, if autos can’t have “secret” compartments, why not ban houses with “secret” rooms! We might also ban the old root cellar and storm shelter because people might misuse them. I think both liberals and conservatives can agree that this legislation is probably unconstitutional and, if the law is enacted, creates a dangerous precedent.April 18, 2012 11:09 pm at 11:09 pm #483442

It is amazing the country existed as long as it did without these moronic people passing their dumb laws. Yesterday, I read an article on this law, then an article on NY Mayor wanting a law that forces apt. buildings to state whether they allow smoking, and an article that all new cars will be forced to be equipped with black boxes shortly. Regulation at all levels being passed so fast no one can keep up.June 13, 2012 4:45 pm at 4:45 pm #483444

When going to a park, pool, sporting event, festival, traveling for work, or vacationing there many people that feel a locked compartment in a locked car is a safe place to safe keep your GPS, Jewery, Wallet, IPod, Phone, Cash, Laptop, etc.
It’s even safer if the compartment is out of site and hidden. Face it, everyone knows about glove boxes and consols.
