    I have been an AZ resident for 12 years now. My family and I vacation in CA Almost every year. We literally just got back from 3 days in San Diego and 3 days in the Sequoia Forest (which was amazing by the way). CA is a beautiful state but the gun laws are ridiculous! My firearm of choice is my S&W M&P 40. Since this weapon has a 15 round magazine...not an option to carry across state lines. My other option would have been to take my .38Spl 5 round revolver. As other posters have stated, this would have been unloaded, locked up, separate from ammo, and in a compartment that was not accessible from the main cabin of the vehicle. BUT,.....we rented a minivan that does not have a separate trunk area!!! Although it pains me greatly, especially when I am traveling with my family, when headed to California.......I leave my guns at home.

  3. Just stay out of CA until it implodes then you get to rebuild it with common sense. At present the state is largely populated by corrupt politicians, illegal aliens, brain dead druggies, asians who won't assimilate, lesbians, gays and perverts who detest anyone straight and Hollywood uber rich dimwits.

    To me this is the very definition of tyranny. The governmental elites in CA have suppressed people so hard that now you won't/can't even protect yourself in CA.

    I do not understand why anyone would willingly travel to CA, spend their hard earned money there, and financially support government officials of such outlandish laws that suppress the people there.

    Other places I will not travel to because of similar reasons: NY, NJ, IL, HI, and MD to name a few. These places all have beautiful scenery. However, beautiful scenery can be had all through this great land of ours without comprising our rights, especially the right to be able to defend yourself and your family. For example, I'm spending 3 weeks in South Dakota this summer. I'll be enjoying all this state has to offer from Sioux Falls, to the Missouri River, to the Badlands, and so on. My rights will not be so comprised that I wouldn't be able to defend myself from a wild animal or a wild person. I also, won't be supporting a wildly tyrannical state government with my money.

    I honestly couldn't live with myself if I took my family on a vacation to one of these tyrannical states and something happened to them and I could do nothing about it because I abided by their unconstitutional laws. I pray nothing happens to you and yours either.

    Summed it up nicely. Maybe if we are lucky the San Andreas fault will do us all a big favor. Unfortunately there are several other states in this current asylum run by its inmates formerly known as the USA. At least, if I plan on a vacation my choices are not so difficult anymore--I will be damned if I will spend a broken nickel in any of these toilets.

    The gun in a locked case in the trunk requires all ammunition to be located in a different part of your vehicle. I use to work in the Death Valley area where I truly believe the gun laws are even stricter than other parts of CA other than Orange County. When I finally had the chance to move it was as fast as the law would allow to the Arizona Border.

    Not to mention that this thread is completely loaded with misinformation ("requirements" which are not requirements at all in California law).

    None of the above is required by California law. And California has state preemption of firearms laws which makes local laws and ordinances more restrictive than state law illegal.

    The California Highway Patrol has the correct answer:

    I will be traveling to California and want to carry my weapon. I currently have a concealed weapon permit. How can I legally transport my weapon while driving through the state?
    California law does not recognize concealed weapon permits from other states; therefore, they would not be held valid. If you wish to transport a handgun during your California visit, it should be carried unloaded in a locked container. In the absence of a suitable container, you may secure the unloaded handgun in the locked trunk of a passenger car. Ammunition may be kept in the same container or trunk, but the handgun must remain unloaded with no rounds in the cylinder and no loaded magazines in the magazine well.
    If you have additional questions, contact the California Department of Justice at 916-227-3703.
