    Default Horse and long gun

    Dumb question. Is it legal to have a loaded long gun while riding a horse

    I'm pretty sure the answer is no. A horse is a mode of conveyance. Any mode of conveyance requires a LTCF, which doesn't cover typical rifles (16"+). I could be wrong though.

    With a LTCF you can carry an AR or AK pistol. So barrel length under 16".

    This above is probably the most accurate answer.


    And right now, any method of carry, of any type of firearm, on public domain requires a LTCF due to a declared state of emergency. But even with that, only "firearms" are allowed to be loaded in/on/upon vehicles.

    How then, do they rationalize having a loaded duck gun in a canoe?

    Probably because "hunting" - the only legit reason to own a gun per the constitution.

    Canoe cannot have a motor attached.

    You can hunt and shoot from horses. I've watched hunters on horseback at the State Gamelands at Blue Marsh hunt and shoot stocked quail from horseback.

    I've hunted and shot ducks from my duck boat that has a motor attached to it. Perfectly legal.
