    Excellent resource. :thumbup:

    I'm puzzled by the Travel pages, though. Several states are shown as "red", meaning you can't have a weapon in your car while traveling. But FEDERAL law allows vehicle carry while traveling, and that trumps state law.

    .
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    Federal Law says as a minimum ,regardless of State laws you can have a weapon in the trunk unloaded seperated from the ammo, as your cross state lines during a move or when getting a purchased gun to your place of residnence and/or a range..and no state can publish something more restrictive or if they do it is null and void.

    States in red will only allow this minimum because they have to.

    This continues to be a confusing issue. I read recently (I thought it was in an NRA publication, but can't find it right now) that there was a federal court ruling that a person's car is an extension of his "home" while traveling, and as such he is entitled to the same rights of protection as when in his house - that is, he can have a loaded gun available to him in the car to protect himself and his property. Don't take that as gospel, though!

    Then, for those of us with CHL's, there is the matter of reciprocity and those states that do and don't honor a given state's license.

    The bottom line is to study up thoroughly if you plan to carry a weapon with you! (And get a concealed carry license - it gives you much more latitude.)

    I realize this thread has probably been completed but after reading it I have questions.

    My pistol is carried CCW whenever I leave home whether I take a local ride in the car or a trip from my city (don't laugh Mike).

    What good is a gun for protection when you travel if the gun is in a locked trunk with the ammo in another place?

    How is it going to protect when you don't have it on you?

    If another state honors your CCW permit, why would you not carry concealed as you drive through that state?

    IF these questions are naive, just humor me as I am getting older each day and need help understanding the liberal generation.

    If he next state honrs your permit no need ot keep it locked in trunk.

    Locked in trunk is the mode of travel states must allow as a MINIMUM.
    Folks that ahve a CC permit usually just keep carry between states that accept each others permit.
