    I probably already know the answer to this question, but can I conceal carry or take my CCW to Canada?

    • FranklinsGhost

      No. Theres a ton of paperwork just to take hunting guns to Canada for a planned hunting trip. if you try to cross the border into Canada with your handgun you’ll find yourself escorted out of the country, your handgun seized or maybe even locked up. Or a combination of all three.

    I’m planning on going to CA from NE. By the map I can conceal/carry all the way. But when I get to CA my NE permit is not recognized. Is it legal to have a pistol in my vehicle with ammo in it if the weapon is visible?

    • Jack Bourland

      I know you posted your question four months ago, so this reply might be a bit late. (I just came across this site today). In CA, it is NOT legal to have a loaded pistol in your vehicle without a CCW (this includes the trunk). The weapon and ammo have to remain separate. Meaning, if you have a gun case it has to be locked and secured, and the ammo has to be outside of the gun case (it can be in the magazine as long as the magazine is outside the locked secured gun case).

    I am moving to Mass from Fl to take a new job. I have a concealed carry permit issued by Fl. Am I allowed to keep a gun in my home in Mass? I know I need a Class A permit to carry in Mass. I am concerned about transporting my weapons into Mass. They will be unloaded and locked. GB

    Am traveling to Phoenix AZ for the Christmas break from Seattle WA. I will be there for a week. My connecting flight is from San Francisco. Would I get into trouble if I have packed my firearm into my checked luggage and going through California? I have a 2 hr wait there before my connecting flight.

    • RTuck

      As long as you follow your airline’s requirements for transporting the gun, you should have no problems.

    I live in S.C. I have a permit for my State. Do I need a Utah permit to carry in that state? Second Question is why does S.C. not allow a Utah permit in my State?

    • tomas.sniper

      It is probably because Utah, been a good old state, does not require a weapons certification course, or handgun training, probably it only requires hunter safety or something like that.

  • PappaBear

    Good morning.

    I am traveling with my family from PA to FL in a few months. I wanted to bring my pistol for self defense purposes on this long trip. It appears that the two states I would be traveling through that do not honor a PA concealed carry permit are Maryland and South Carolina. Looking at the information on Maryland’s page on this site, it looks like it is not legal for me to have my handgun in my vehicle in any manner in this state. Is South Carolina the same? That is, since they don’t honor my concealed carry permit, that means I can’t transport my handgun in my vehicle in any manner (even in a case in the back, unloaded?)?

    Thanks in advance.

    • tomas.sniper

      You should be able to carry it in the trunk, unloaded. Even The People’s Republic of California allows you to do so.

    JUSTICE FOR AARON NEAMES!!!!!! This is Aaron Neames, my boyfriend. Who was unjustly charged with attempted 2nd degree murder on a man who broke into our home and held my friends and a teenager who is like my son hostage for three hours at gunpoint while waiting for Aaron to come home so he could rob and kill him!! Aaron protected his home and family, and was charged and treated like a criminal. After Jarreau fled he had already called others to back him up and insinuated that he was going to retrieve another weapon so Aaron defended his home. He prevented 4 deaths, including a minor, and possibly many more. He had already robbed two others and said he was coming back. Aaron is a hero. We need as much support as possible. #justiceforaaron on facebook

    I have applied for my ccw but my question is my husband has a felony that is 22 years old. How does that affect my ccw. Can I still get one? Do I have to keep it locked up away from him What about if we are traveling in same vehicle?Please help me answer this

    • HRS 134

      This would depend on your state laws. Generally speaking, you should be able to get a CC permit/license. Just don’t provide your husband with firearms or ammo and you should be good to go.

    I am waiting to be cleared for my CCW in AZ. I past the class but either way I see Nevada does not honor Arizona CCW but as I understand it and please correct me if i am wrong, Nevada has always been an open carry state and still is so I was told as long as my weapon is not concealed I can carry it in Nevada as long as it is a licensed gun? And it can be loaded unlike if I went into California I would have to have it unloaded locked in trunk with mags separate from that?

    SCOTUS Ruling On Same-Sex Marriage Mandates Ntionwide Concealed Carry Reciprocity

    If you’re following any of the various media outlets this morning, you’re probably aware that the U.S. Supreme Court has just extended gay marriage to all 50 states.

    The Supreme Court ruled Friday that same-sex couples have
    a right to marry nationwide, in a historic decision that
    invalidates gay marriage bans in more than a dozen states.

    Gay and lesbian couples already can marry in 36 states
    and the District of Columbia. The court’s ruling on Friday
    means the remaining 14 states, in the South and Midwest,
    will have to stop enforcing their bans on same-sex marriage.

    The outcome is the culmination of two decades of Supreme
    Court litigation over marriage, and gay rights generally.

    You can peruse the full ruling here, but the meat of the activist
    Court’s over-long decision hinges on a single paragraph.

    The Court used Section 1 of the Fourteen Amendment to
    justify their argument, which reads:

    Amendment XIV

    Section 1.

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States,
    and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the
    United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state
    shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the
    privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States;
    nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or
    property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person
    within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    By using the Constitution in such a manner, the Court
    argues that the Due Process Clause extends “certain personal
    choices central to individual dignity and autonomy” accepted
    in a majority of states across the state lines of a handful of
    states that still banned the practice.

    The vast majority of states are “shall issue” on the
    matter of issuing concealed carry permits, and enjoy
    reciprocity with a large number of other states.

    My North Carolina concealed carry permit, for example, was
    recognized yesterday as being valid in 36 states, which just so
    happened to be the number of states in which gay marriage was
    legal yesterday. But 14 states did not recognize my concealed
    carry permit yesterday.

    Today they must.

    Using the same “due process clause” argument as the
    Supreme Court just applied to gay marriage, my concealed carry
    permit must now be recognized as valid in all 50 states and
    the District of Columbia.

    I’ll be driving through the District of Columbia,
    Maryland, New Jersey, and New York in several weeks, places
    that until yesterday I did not have a legal right to concealed
    carry. As of today, with this decision, it would seem that
    these states and the District must honor my concealed carry
    permit, or violate my constitutional rights under the 14th and
    Second Amendment.

    God Bless America.

      Hello Red.
      While I share your feeling that a valid carry concealed permit should be recognized in all fifty states same a driver’s license, I strongly recommend that you do not proceed with driving thru the states you mention while carrying. You risk dire consequences if you are caught and may likely even loose your CC license from your home state, as those state may report that you committed a crime with a firearm. In NJ you don’t even want to get caught with a hollow point bullet in the vehicle. I live in Pa, and carry concealed. One day while at a Home Depot in Pa I found they were out of what I wanted to purchase but they checked a Home Depot just across the river in NJ had in stock what I wanted. I am so used to carry conceal that I didn’t give a thought to it until in NJ. I was very conscious of my speed and turn signals until I got back to Pa.
      Best wishes and safe travels

      • JustMoreOfTheSame2016

        After the “incident” (and criminal consequences) of PA’s Ms. Shaneen Allen carrying in BLUE NJ eighteen months ago, you were right to be “concerned.” You were also very lucky.

        Sadly, many state legislatures and state governors/State AGs — particularly in the Atlantic and New England states — disregard and disdain the Second Amendment’s clear, direct, plain and simple language/meaning.

    • KennyDee

      I know everyone cant do this, but I simply do not go to states that do
      not have reciprocity with my state. If I have to, it is begrudgingly. I
      refuse to spend a dime voluntarily in any of such states. Fortunately
      for me there are only a few folks in PA I even would want to see and I
      can avoid Maryland to get there…and I avoid Maryland like the plague (I’m in VA). New England never sees my face or a dime of my money and NY and NJ would have to pay me to come…and give me total immunity for me to even think of it.

      When I look to vacation, I take my money only to states where they respect my right to defend myself and I keep my money in the U.S.A.

      From your keyboard to God’s mouth on forcing all states to comply to our 2A rights though. I’m not holding my breath. The commies in these states will find a way to still criminalize it if the Supreme’s eventually do force them. The are a gazillion laws on the books and law enforcement can always find some obscure law, even if they haven’t enforced it in 50 years to dust off and use it to jack with people.

      That’s why laws are almost never repealed. The power brokers that own this country like to have a bunch in their hip pocket in case they need them to mess with certain individuals.

      If the supreme’s did this, you would still have to research which states are “hostile” to your 2A rights and avoid states that become known for finding other laws to ruin your day or life with.

  • KennyDee

    Can someone tell me what Georgia’s gun laws are? I’m from Virginia and Georgia is the only state messing up my free travel through the south. I will drive out of my way to avoid one of these states. They will not get a dime of my money for anything voluntarily.

    But, I do have relatives in GA and in case of a funeral, I may need to know what I need to do to enter this state and leave without their anti-Virginia gun permit cuffs on me. That’s the only reason Georgia will ever see me and my money until they come off of this lunacy.

  • braniff1

    I purchased glock 42 and have 6 in mag one in chamber. wife upset over fact one in chamber. I told her that your cannot in confrontation when life on line place one. Since she feels that mind has no safety, i explain that no finger on trigger a reasonable safety. In holster trigger concealed. Trying my best to get her to take course and then she will understand. I refuse to carry empty chamber. Any comment on this that I can use. She refuse to go to store with me at night (wal0mart) when she ask me if I had the pistol on me. She couldn’t see it and delayed the store visit until daylight next morn. I know she is just concerned for my safety. 73 yrs of age and she is also afraid if someone see the gun and says give me the weapon and I’m unable to fight off the thug, attemping to take my weapon is that reason to draw and fire when he approaches me in a menacing way. Then I think I know what is going to happy if I hand over weapon to a criminal. Your views

  • Nick

    If I am moving from Indiana to Missouri and have a valid permit in Indiana would I also need to apply for a permit in Missouri? And if doing so would my permit in Indiana be void after I move? So say I move back to Indiana after a year, would I have to apply for my permit again? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  • bfloyd

    Pulled over by a Park Ranger, while driving in a federal park, he asked “do you have any weapons on you or in the vehicle?” “No,” I truthfully replied. (I have a concealed carry permit (CCP) valid for the park, but was not carrying.) My wife is in the car with me, but I never told her about obtaining CCP and didn’t want to tell her as she is very anti-gun anti-2nd amendment.

    After Ranger finds no wants or warrants for me, he walks back to passenger side door and passes back my license & car registration. He says that he is letting me go with a warning to fix the light that is out (the burned out light bulb is why he pulled me over). He also says “you have a concealed handgun permit?” as I’m sure his computer told him. My wife is looking out her car door window at the officer and answering “No,” while I nod my head to indicate yes, hoping she won’t realize what’s going on. As she turns to look at me, I start shaking my head to indicate no as I say “no weapons on me or in vehicle.” I guess he understood the situation as he moved on to giving me helpful suggestions where I could get a replacement bulb.

    Sadly, my wife also figured out what was going on, although, so far, she hasn’t seemed upset by it. She simply said that she wished I had told her previously. So now I wait to see if this leads to problems.

    Should I be mentioning to police that I have a CCP during routine traffic stops even when I am NOT carrying? Local police pulled me over for minor violations in 2006 and 2010 and I never volunteered that I had a CCP as I wasn’t carrying either time. Neither of those officers raised the issue. Maybe those officers didn’t know that I had CCP, whereas updated computer databases now get more info to help keep the officers safe?

    • tobylwillis

      I find it smart to overshare when I get pulled over. Doing this the last two times I got pulled over for speeding I was given a verbal warning and no ticket. For my safety, their safety & to ease their minds I have my hands on the steering wheel with my wallet already out and tell them what I’m carrying and where it is. I then offer to step out of the car if they would feel safer.

  • Howard

    I would like to offer a precautionary warning to anyone interested in buying flashlights. You may want to avoid purchasing them from ILMG, Inc, in St.Charles, MO. They also, go by the name National Gun Owners Association. I purchased 10 of their G700 flashlights but, received only 9. I have emailed them and called their customer support phone # several times. It’s been a month now, and I have received no response from them, and no flashlight to complete my order. Their shipping process is careless and customer service is effectively, nonexistent. To avoid problems, I recommend using one of the many other reliable sources for tactical flashlights.

      Yes, if you take up residencey in Texas you will need to get a Texas LTC. But, you will only need to fill out the proper form that basically allows you to swap them out. The details can be found at the Texas DPS website under Concealed Handgun Division (upper right corner of the home page). Welcome to Texas! Can always use another 2nd Amendment savvy citizen.

  • C.Henry

    Maybe in 2017 under a new President we can get a US Carry permitting system , this would allow all law abiding citizens to travel from state to state without out becoming a criminal !!

    This is such BS , in my state I don’t need a permit to carry but since I do travel thru out the US, I leave my weapon at home ( Not Good ) I’ve never been arrested and don’t plan to .

    I know some states have there weapon permits attached to the DMV system , when the police runs your data ( plates ) and license they already know you have a CC permit . I would think it should be that simple and this would help the police feel more comfortable during a stop knowing what they know already about you ..

    This is the United States Of America , My state driver license lets me drive in every state in the union with out worrying and I should have the same availability with a CC permit . If states do not want to follow or allow a National Permit System, then pull the Federal funding for those states , they will comply .
    I would think with all the legal gun owners in the USA , we should be able to make ( force ) the Government to allow US CC travel …………..just my 2 cents.

  • Carlitoso Valle

    Hello and thank you for taking the time I’m NRA instructor my question
    is It is legal for a gun range to denied service because I’m a
    instructor that teach for the concealed carry they argue because they
    also teach the class there is a conflict of interest. My argument is I
    have my own students I do not use there name of place of business to get
    students. When I go to the range I do not a have a class or any
    materials I do the same thing that everyone that goes there do shoot at
    the range pay for the service. The range I went they told me I was not
    allow to go anymore. Can anyone help with any suggestion. I thank you in
    advance for you time . I live Kissimmee Florida
