    Exclamation Ccw holder traveling past schools in states where ccw holder is not resident

    A question to anyone who can answer it

    as a resident of nevada i am exempted from the restriction of

    carrying within 1000 feet of a school.

    I can drive past schools on the roads to get where i have to

    go.

    Here is the question

    under federal law lets say as a nevada resident with a nevada

    permit when i travel in other states that honor my permit, am i

    exempted from the 1000 foot restriction there also?

    Will the states do anything? Big question. By Federal Law, you just broke the law. By their reading of the law you only are legal in a state that issues you the permit.

    This is how I understand this law, If you are ccing out side your state of issue regardless of reciprocity with your state, this federal law applies to you. Again this is how I understand it and I may be wrong. Just make sure that when you travel outside your state that you are obeying the speed limits. Just another way for the federal gun grabbers to infringe on our second ammendment rights. Does any one else have any info on this law?

    It would be helpful if someone would quote the fed law that is in question. And why have reciprocity if the federal law over rules the state law? And what's with the caviate about speed limits? Are there federal cops out there checking on speed limits?

    This law must have been written by a New Jersey politician, so a judge who hates guns can convict you for being 999 feet from school property. The law gets kind of vague here.

    Here's a letter from the ATF that seems to clarify things a bit, following the safe and sound advice of S&W645.

    The problem for us who CC out of state is that some LEOs even though locals, also have Federal training and powers. The Maricopa County Arizona Sheriff ran afoul of the Feds as he was enforcing Fed Immigration Laws that they didn't want enforced. So they took his Fed powers away.

    Drive the speed limit to lessen your chance of being stopped and arrested for violating the Fed gun rules.

    That's one of those questions of A) Do the local police want to make political points with the feds, and B) Do you you want to give them the space they need to make that decision?

    No, you are not exempt from the Federal Gun Free School Zones Act of 1995 unless you have a carry permit physically issued by the State in which the school is located. If you are convicted of violating the law, you will be punished with a 5-year federal prison term for every school zone you are caught violating. The law requires that the sentences run "consecutively." Therefore, if you are caught violating four school zones, you will be sentenced to a maximum 20 years in federal prision, and any conviction will bar you from legally possessing firearms for the rest of your life. The Federal Gun Free School Zones Act of 1995 is Title 18 U.S.C 922(q)


    There is an ongoing discussion on USA Carry regarding this law. I will link you to it:

    Concealed Carry Reciprocity is CURRENTLY banned under Federal Law. (Important)

    Technically there are a lot of people living within these school zones as well as people traveling through them every minute of every day.
