The Attorney General of Mississippi has opined that a person may legally transport a weapon within a vehicle, whether or not he or she has obtained a permit.1 Furthermore, any person over the age of 18 years may carry a concealed weapon within a motor vehicle anywhere within the state without violating the concealed weapon law.2

Mississippi prohibits public and private employers from establishing or enforcing any policy or rule that has the effect of prohibiting a person from transporting or storing a firearm in a locked vehicle in any parking lot, parking garage or other designated parking area.3 Private employers may prohibit employees from transporting or storing firearms in a vehicle in a parking lot, parking garage or other parking area provided for employees to which access is restricted by a gate, security station or other means to limit public access.4 These provisions do not authorize the transportation or storage of a firearm on any premises where gun possession is prohibited by federal or state law.5
