Re: Is it legal to store a Machete in your car?
It will vary from state to state. In Louisiana for instance, your vehicle is considered an extension of your home, so it's legal to have a weapon in the FJ. Not all states are so enlightened however. The only state's law with which I'm familiar is Louisiana.
While you do not need to consent to a search (thereby requiring the police to obtain a search warrant to search your vehicle - not all that easy to get), if you have contraband in plain sight, a search warrant is not necessary. So if your state has restrictive laws, keep weapons totally out of sight.
