Is it legal to have an assault rifle in your vehicle?

That depends on the jurisdiction and how the rifle is packaged. Technically, an "assault rifle" is a fully-automatic weapon; a machine gun like an AK47, or something like an M16 which is capable of firing a 3-round burst. (Most M16 rifles were built with the ability to fire single-shot, 3 round burst, or full auto. Most of them have been rebuilt to eliminate the full-auto setting, as soldiers were generally just wasting their ammunition that way.) In order to possess or transport a machine gun, you would need a special category of FFL (Federal Firearms License).
