Regarding carrying a gun in a car:
PC §46.02 states:
"...(a-1) A person commits an offense if the person intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly carries on or about his or her person a handgun in a motor vehicle or watercraft that is owned by the person or under the person's control at any time in which:
(1) the handgun is in plain view; ..."
Is there any clarification on the term: "plain view"?
Specifically, would a pistol, totally zipped up in a soft sided pistol bag, be considered in plain view.
Note: the pistol bag itself is in plain view in the storage bin at the bottom of the driver's door.
