He didn't say the gun was loaded while being transported, just that as a result of the accident someone else (an heir)would have possession of a dangerous gun w/o proper instruction.well yea you can't transport stuff like that loaded for sure. Its range/competition only. You would absolutely have to respect it 100% instead of 90%. Most guns do have a margin of error for small mistakes, something like that would not. Your scenario makes sense, but its on par with hauling a loaded rifle up a tree to hunt. With a similar result.
