I went through a license checkpoint on the way home from work earlier today with my Mini-14 on the back seat. I told the trooper it was there and that it was unloaded, and he asked me if I had a permit for it. I was like ".....I need a permit for a rifle?" He asked if the back door was unlocked, so I unlocked it, he opened it, took a glance at it, and said, "Oh, you're hunting. It's cool. Have a good evening" and walked off to the next car. Did he think I was talking about a pistol, or was he worried about hi-cap magazines (it has a 10 rd in it right now)? I thought since the AWB was allowed to sunset, hi-cap magazines aren't restricted anymore, even in a post-ban weapon. Was I wrong in having an unloaded carbine on the back seat with a 10rd magazine and no proof of ownership on me (I keep it here at the house)?
