Sure some cites and municipalities have exception ordinances. As for crossing state lines, a South Carolina resident CC Permit has reciprocity in the nearly half the US states. In turn South Carolina has reciprocity with 17 states whereby CC Permit holders from those states may CC in South Carolina as long as they abide by state CC restrictions. Other states differ of course but the "Can't Cross State Lines Isn't Allowed" issue simply isn't correct in all cases.

This comment is inaccurate. The author is writing it without having researched the facts. It would have been much more accurate if they had said "international borders" instead of merely "state lines".

Another incorrect statement. Many states have reciprocal agreements.

"travelling in that much fear?" What does fear have to do with anything?

"leave your guns at home?" A lot of good that will do... unless you need one and happen to be at home. Whether I'm in the 'Stream, in a tent or in the house, I'm very much at home.

How many have actually "needed one?" When you find yourself needing one, you'd better have one.

The NRA sticker will only deter those who actually SEE the NRA sticker. Some who see the sticker have no actual fear of stickers.

Just a note to remind everyone not to get too far off topic into the 'gun vs no gun' debate. We all have our own opinions on if we need a gun or not, folks are unlikely to change their minds from one side to the other, and that direction tends to lead to threads getting closed.

However people are welcome to discuss laws, crossing state lines, stuff like that. That way we can all live happily together and keep the thread open

I am packing...
But when I lived in the UK where nobody does.... and anything that is not considered something "Normal" to have in the car(ie, a baseball Bat) would land you in Jail.
I carried a LARGE wire Brush... it was rusty and ugly...
For cleaning spark plugs Officer....

I showed it to bad people 5 times, and used it once... I hit the guy with it twice and he will never forget it...
Ripped the skin right off his nose and lips...
Now I am older and calmer... but the sight of him bleeding and weeping fluid still makes me wince!

We each carry Glock 26's, and a Glock 19 in the tow vehicle. We carry them with us everywhere.

Moosetags: That 26 is a sweet tool, easy to conceal. I prefer the 19 on the range.

What kind of environment do people live in that they feel the need to carry a firearm? - and perhaps more to the point of this thread - where do people go that they feel the need to carry a firearm?

I can only guess that their travels must not include typical campground or park environment where security is provided - and where firearms would normally be prohibited.

One previous poster talked about the need to show a weapon (not a firearm) on 5 different occasions - and use it once. This kind of bizarre (to me) statement generates a whole list of other questions - most of which have nothing to do with fellow campers.

I have a CHL that permits me to carry in 37 states. Be guaranteed I will exercise my Second Amendment Right. I have never had to draw my weapon and Pray I never have too. But put me in a corner and threaten me or mine wiff bodily harm and see what happens. I also think that the CASTLE LAW applys everywhere,Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Castle does not apply everywhere. We still don't have it in Minnesota.
