Yes, it has happened. A guy was even jailed for it but eventually released. He was stopped by a policeman for a traffic infraction. The officer asked him if had any weapons in the car and he admitted to having an unloaded firearm in the trunk. Everything was legal but it was confiscated and he was jailed on a BS charge of transporting illegally. There was a big public cry for support of this guy and he was eventually released. I don't remember all the details but I'll post a link if I can find it.
