Mustang, allow me to remind you that this is an AIRSTREAM forum, not a firearms forum. There are dozens and dozens of places out there you can go talk guns. We allow a free range of topics in our off-topic section. Gun and politics threads (among others) cause the moderation staff to have to monitor almost every posting to make sure that someone isn't violating our policies. It becomes very tedious for us, especially since this topic was exhaustively covered in:

probably one of the longest-running threads on the Forums. Further, lest you think I'm out to spoil your thread on a controversial subject, if you take time to read that entire thread, you'll find I was one of the most frequent posters in that thread throughout its life.

Stef's direction to stay on topic about CCW licensing across the U.S. was neither inappropriate nor unreasonable. It was the topic that you started the thread about. Our job as moderators is to ensure that everyone is comfortable here and that the "Play Nice" rule is followed by everyone in a potentially controversial subject.

It might be a good idea to call ahead to a state's highway patrol leaving your conversation on recorder at their station w/ a fax from the station to cya.Cops (especially at night) do not liked to be surprised and value a written notice. I have a permit but even more responsibility is a plus.

The Office of the Attorney General in most states is a good source of reliable information on reciprocity and other regulations dealing with CCW issues.

Other than crossing a national border, you can transport anywhere, as long as it isn't concealed, and the weapon and ammo aren't within reach of you.

While it's hard to imagine that more could be said about CCW, etc..than what was covered in a the previous thread:
It's interesting to note the major differences between not only the states but, between the regions of this great country..

That would be tampering with evidence and change a good shoot into one that is questionable. I've had a carry permit in TN. for over 8 years and carry 40% of the time. Why? I worked at two max. prisons in the past and I know what lerks in the minds of some people. TN. has reciprocity with many states and as noted in an earlier thread, as well as are a good source of info.

Craig, what Jason means by dragging someone you just blew away inside, is that then the Colorado Make My Day Law applies—it doesn't on the porch. But you are right about tampering and if the cops figure out you dragged the corpse inside, it'll just get a lot worse for you. And since credible reports show police crime labs are badly run, just about any kind of results, true or not, may come out of them.

Yep, if you can't attack the evidence, you need to attack the witnesses!

So much depends on were you are and who you shoot. In Massachusetts any use of a firearm is going to land you in trouble. The standard for self defense is so high that you are proably going to found guilty of some crime if you use a weapon to defend yourself. I know a man that defended himself in a knife attack and was convicted of man slaughter. Why? He was at a bar. The state argued that he knew there was a risk by being there and he should have waited for police to help.
In many states in the deep south, the standard is much different. I live near New Orleans. A man here shot and killed someone breaking into his car. He was in no danger. The theif was in the car; he was in his house. The police rulled it justifiable. Why? Here, your car is an extension of your home. He was just defending his property. Also, the kid he killed had a long criminal record.
Each state has a different standard and I don't believe that you can count on things being the same as you travel accross the country. Common sense goes a long way. Don't brandish your gun in public. If you are stopped by the police, let them know right away that you have a gun. If you're not sure of the local laws, lock the gun in the trunk, trailer or tool box. Once you are camping, your trailer becomes your home. In most places, you are allowed to defend your home unless there is a notice that no firearms are allowed.
