This term originated in the military and meant that your M-16 had the magazine in place and was ready to fire. The order to "lock and load" means to get ready for action.
If you are "locked and loaded," it means you are ready for whatever comes next.
The term was in use before the M-16. Many western stories and movies have used the saying for rifles as well as for wagons. It also has been used as an old sailing term for the storage of goods being locked into place and loaded aboard.

Locked and cocked is a term usually associated with a firearm, although it is usually said "Cocked and Locked". This refers to arming the firearm, that is the gun has a bullet chambered and the hammer is cocked and the gun will fire if the trigger is pulled. Locked means the safety is engaged. Cocked, locked and ready to rock is a longer version of the phrase. It just means you are ready. You are fully prepared to do what needs to be done.
It means you have agreed to something and you are now locked into that decision. No changing your mind.

The majority of states prohibit driving with a loaded handgun unless the person possessing the gun has a carry permit. Some states do allow keeping a handgun loaded in the car but require that it be locked away. Texas is interesting - loaded guns must be out of sight. Other states, like Maryland, are incredibly anti-gun and take their laws seriously. In California, if you carry a loaded gun or part of a gun (e.g. a loaded clip) in the car and it is not in a locked container, you will go to jail and you will be charged with a felony.
