No national gun registry, yet!

And I am about as likely to visit MD as I am to visit Damascus; again. .

Thank you everyone for keeping this on track and within the single exception for discussing firearms and RV life. This thread has been very educational and (with a "nod" to our friends north of the 49th parallel) within guidelines.

What are the laws and thoughts about bringing a gun (in the camper) on trips through different states? I have a retired Police friend who said it is Ok to carry a gun in the camper as it is an extension of your home. I find this hard to believe but was wondering what the forum folks think on this subject.

Please no nasty comments.

Thanks.
for now it's still ok to travel with a gun . i do and have for over 30 yrs . of course never up the eat coast seems some states up there frown on it .but from mt, wy, co,sd,nd,kn,mo,ok,ne,ky,az, ut,nm, tx, ia, mn , and many more have at it

Gary Slider is the bomb. I have been using his site for years. Very helpful when traveling or just staying up with your local laws. It would be fairly easy to break a law when traveling. You could even get convicted of a felony, then goodbye gun rights. Use his site, handgunlaws.us and stay up to date. You can also check out defensivecarry.com and talk to local folks about laws in their area when traveling. I go by Stevew on that site. When traveling, I go around unfriendly gun states. Why add money to unfriendly coifiers.

Wow. 94 posts in 13 hours? Hot topic.
I normally bring one or two hand guns with me in my travels across the USA. It stays in the camper so no
one knows they are there except me. If I need it, I'll use it to protect me or my wife and deal with the consequences.
Now.... On this current trip we will be traveling into Canada, so the hand guns stayed at home.

This was all over the news. They separated the husband and wife. Husband stated his firearm was home in his safe. Wife said she didn't know where his firearm was. With conflicting stories they searched their vehicle. You can read the stories I found on a quick search of Google about it.

Well........at the end it said "Now, despite having fielded apologies from the officer's captain as well as from a Maryland Transportation Authority Police internal affairs captain........"

So clearly this officer was out of line, and acted without legal authority. It is not a crime for a person that doesn't own a gun to not know where some gun might be. And they can say they know, that they don't know, or they can be wrong about what they know.....none of that is a crime. That is why, I assume, that the guy got an apology.

Since 'we' travel all over the country, 'we' probably need to know what to do in each state. Here is a good website, though I just found it and can't vouch for it's veracity.


Do You Have A Duty To Inform When Carrying Concealed? We Look At All 50 States For The Answers – Concealed Nation

And none of that addresses what are the rules for a person who carries but doesn't have a CCW in any state, or one who has a CCW but doesn't carry.

The problem with Maryland (and probably New York, etc) is that if you do have a CCW from any state and you are there, they assume you are packing. If I leave my weapon at home, travel through Maryland and New York on my way to Canada, I'm subject to some policeman's assumption that I have a weapon. But if he thinks that alone is legal Probable Cause to search my truck or trailer, and he does so, I am parking that camper until the court date, and he and I will discuss it openly with the judge.

As an opinion, I have no intentions of either going naked into this bizarre world, nor of visiting places that allow perps to be armed but not me. DW wants desperately to see the Northeast, but since she also has a CCW, I'm going to veto it. We'll have to live vicariously through pictures.

There certainly is a ton of confusion in this big old country about this subject, though.

Guess I will not travel through that state with firearm or "unregistered" ammunition. Just do the View Master thing as stated above.That guy needs a lawyer. They need to concentrate on policing in Baltimore rather than harassing out of state travelers.

I am still on the fence about this post.

Based on the links, Do you think that this state is sending a message to legal citizens that they are not wanted or welcome? Do you think there was a reason to check this guy or does the state (if this is in fact policy) think this will make bad guys go elsewhere? What is the purpose?

Maryland state motto? Bring us your dollars and nothing loaded.
