The California Senate Public Safety Committee on Tuesday approved a bill being carried by State Sen. Jack Scott that would prohibit carrying a loaded firearm while in a vehicle in unincorporated areas of the state. Incorporated cities already prohibit carrying loaded firearms in vehicles, as do some individual counties that have passed similar gun-control ordinances — including Los Angeles County. But Scott’s bill, which is sponsored by a host of public safety entities including the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, would extend the prohibition of loaded firearms in vehicles to unincorporated areas in counties that don’t currently address the issue, he said.
