Firearms in your RV

what is the best resource to find out if it is legal to have a fire arm at a campground. I am permitted to carry in most states. If it is in your unit but under lock and key does that fall under transportation laws? I know that some of the laws very greatly from state to state.

Handgunlaw.us is a good resource. As far as on campground property, it is private property so the laws maybe diffrent for each state. Some states you can be arrested for ignoring the no gun signs, others nothing can be done. In the handgun law site it has a section for "no firearms" signs and whether they are bound by law.

Me, I keep a firearm regardless of the signage. If I see a no gun sign i secure it in my trailers lock safe and leave it there. I respect the rights of the property owner.

I too have CCL. I always will travel with a weapon in the truck(where it;s legal)and will keep it in the RV when i can't carry on me or in the truck.Only exception will be into canada and then I will have a long gun w/the proper paper work with me.

As your question,almost all campgrounds have verbage of some sort that says no firearms allowed.I still say if it is concealed who knows you have it?

Try this one. Concealed Carry Permit Reciprocity Maps - USA Carry
BTW, it is illegal to have a firearm in any CG that is owned/operated or leased by the Army Corps of Engineers. Many state parks lease their land from ACofE.

Second thoughts.. And a reread of the question. Do NOT assume you can just keep a gun under lock and key. Let's say I have an "assault rifle" legal in my state, PA, I can lock it up and travel through NJ (almost everything is illegal there it seems) so long as I DO NOT STOP OR LEAVE THE INTERSTATE. if I stop for a pee break technically I violated NJ law for having a prohibited weapon in their state. I do jot agree with this and think the federal law should still preempt the state but for now that is what it is.

It can be discussed if it stayed on topic and free from whether it is right or wrong to have guns. At least that was my understanding..

Please excuse me if I posted a question that is considered out of bounds. I just bought my first RV and just was asking for some insight from the more experienced. I totally respect the rights of others to their opinion but also reserve the right to have my own

OK, the site team has done a cleanup of a few off-topic posts and answers that have nothing to do with the question asked.

As per the guidelines:

General discussions of politics, general government policies, weaponry, gun rights and religion are not allowed in ANY areas of the forum. Discussions about current or pending legislation or regulations, weapons and religion that directly pertain to RVing are acceptable but will be closed or removed if they wander off topic or become disruptive.

The reason for this guideline, is just how emotional these subjects seem to get with members. Many a fight has started over those pro and those anti on some subjects....and thus the guideline keeps everybody friends.

If it pertains directly to RV'ing, which the OP's question does, then it's acceptable, and hopefully all following posts will adhere to the same.

Off-topic posts about other site team actions are not meant for thread hijacks. Send the site team a private message if you have questions, also per the guidelines:

Complaints about moderator decisions may not be made in posts; instead send a private message to a moderator. If a moderator deletes or edits one of your posts and you disagree with the action, contact the moderator concerned. Do not repost deleted material.

We recommend that everyone, read the site guidelines, which may easily answer many questions that members have as to "why" things are done.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled program.
