Some law enforcement and prosecutors want to know if it's legal to have a loaded weapon in a vehicle without a permit.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A lawmaker says some sheriffs and county prosecutors are raising questions about a new law that allows most adults to carry a hidden firearm with no permit.

The so-called constitutional-carry law took effect Tuesday and lets law-abiding adults skip background checks and classes. But Mandan Rep. Todd Porter says some law enforcement and prosecutors want to know if it's legal to have a loaded weapon in a vehicle without a permit.

Bill sponsors have requested clarification with the state's attorney general.
