Gun concealment legalities

While traveling with my gun in the car, I understand that I have to keep it 'in plain view,' such as on the passenger seat. If I were to leave the car for any period of time, would I be allowed to hide the gun in the car to deter theft?

I understand that laws vary state to state, so someone familiar with AZ law would prolly be best to answer this. *I know AZ is a Right to Carry state and that I could just get my CCW, but my question still stands. :)

Wanted to post an update. I spoke with some local LEOs and they said it is fine to conceal a weapon in a car if no one is in the car. I am unsure if it has to be unloaded though.

I recall reading somewhere that AZ considers your car an extension of your home. It's probably legal to have a loaded concealed weapon in your home, same for your car.

Obviously you'd want to double check that with the authorities. :D
