I've been considering getting a handgun for some time now ever sense I've been held up and robbed some time ago. But of course haven't done so due to not having a solid understanding for state, nor federal law. So would it be legal to purchase a pistol(private purchase) and carry itonmy peperson, and in my vehicle?
