In Texas, nearly every place I've traveled had folks carrying. This has not been my exp in approx 30 of the 50 states I've traveled. Matter of fact, in some places in TX there are signs in some public buildings that restrict bringing a loaded gun carried on a person (concealed or not) into some buildings.

Silvertwinkie,

And as the law is written, you will/should never see anyone legally carrying a "concealed weapon".

What I am refering to is that a person Texas , if not a felon, drug addict, etc. can acquire (with proper training) a "conceald" carry permit. In Texas, as in most states, it is illegal to carry a weapon open to public display. Only two states have no restrictions that allow someone to carry an exposed weapon on his person in public. And if you have, in fact, seen someone carrying a side arm in Texas (loaded or not) in public, he was doing so illegally.

Despite what some think of the "cowboys" here in
Texas we are quite civilized. We even drink tea with our crumpets.

Ed

You would not be allowed to enter Canada with a handgun. You would be turned away or have to leave your handgun with the border guard. Canadian Border guards don't even carry guns but I believe this will change soon.

There's probably a better chance that in the U.S. vs Canada a bad guy will come up to you, shoot you then rob you because he probably expects you to be armed. Have you ever seen those police shoot outs after a cop pulls over a car, in the heat of the moment, trained officers can't seem to hit the side of a barn door. If you carry a gun you better know how to use it well and if you can't get at it easily it's useless.

That's right. While wintering in AZ I saw a lot of folks with a gun and holster. Heck, half the folks at the RV park were packin' heat.

If I remember right, while we were there ... AZ passed a law that allowed an individual to bring a loaded gun into a bar ... but he was not allowed to drink.

That got me to thinking ... Will a bartender have the courage to refuse service to someone carrying a loaded weapon?

I think this law was vetoed by the governor.

Gun laws don't work-

One poster said that we need to protect ourselves. Who are we protecting from? Law abiding citizens?

"When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns." ...Dads bumper sticker...

I carry, I have never had a permit, nor will I ever apply for one. The people that I know with arsenals, and I'm talking well over 100 firearms, would never register. The theory is that if, or possibly the preferred term is when- our out of control government launches a martial law attack on its people- those who are prepared to protect are the first they'll come to and try and disarm. Many of these people are quite well to do, highly educated, community leaders- and most would never be accused of extremism or being a "militant".

No criminal that we are protecting ourselves from registers, or applies for a permit. Washington DC is a fine example- illegal to own a gun, and no citizen has one, but 99% of the criminal element is packing- armed robberies are commonplace- the people can't defend. Most live in fear.

My question would be that if I am allowed to own a handgun and have it somewhere in my trailer/vehicle/person- for transport- will I get harassed? If I'm traveling in my trailer, is my trailer my home and am I allowed to own a firearm to defend my home?

I normally have one of my shotguns, and a few "hunting" paraphernalia items in my truck. You can't be arrested for having a shotgun, and hunting is pretty much a sport that is allowed in every state. Depending on where I am- I have different stock and barrel configs, folding, riot, etc- and of course the standby AK with a sport stock. Regardless of where I am, I'm usually with a pistol on me or in my truck, loaded and ready and close. I keep a baseball bat, carry dual action automatic knives. I have a gun place and knives hidden on my Harley. The law doesn't protect me or my family from criminals without permits, so why do I need one? I made this choice and know the consequences- I've never been charged regarding a gun, but was harassed at a young age because of a baseball bat- sort of went like this-
"Son, that don't look like a baseball bat for baseball- I think thats a weapon."
"Officer, I enjoy all types of sports- I have a basketball in the trunk- is that a weapon as well?"
"Is this blood on the bat here?"
"Officer, its possibly blood- I do remember a dog that was dying on the side of the road after a car struck it, and I used the bat to help the dog end his pain."
"Son, whats this machete under your seat used for? Clearing out the baseball field?"
"I like to go hiking and exploring in the woods, Officer, and that is what any person who wants to get through a blackberry bramble would use to clear a path..."

He smiled and said I gave him good answers, and he understood me. I spoke with him respectfully and smiled the whole time. Off I went.

I'm almost more worried about the fat donut sucking cop with no understanding of reality carrying a gun, than I am a criminal carrying one. I know and expect the criminals motive, but the repressed and psychotic police officer who has ego and other manifestations controlling his attitude is unpredictable.

My solution is this- love your family, love and enjoy your life, stay healthy and vigilant, everyone carry, everyone respect- no problems!

I've also never even thought of having a cop search my trailer- but watching the transformation of our nation into a police state, I'm sure "itz" coming.

Thumbs up Personal Protection Law

Here in Minnesoooota, we have a carry law as well. You wouldn't think so to look around except certain establishments have (NO FIREAREMS ALLOWED) signs posted. You can't tell who is carrying or not, (we wear a lot of bulky clothes don't ya know).

In the Twin Cities recently there were two killings of innocent people on the streets by supposed gang members. People remarked how as they all hit the dirt, how many guns came out. Said it made them feel better.

Minnesota Law Enforcement has access to the names of all permit holders. Holders are told that if they are stopped to roll down the window and sit with hands on the steering wheel. If the Officer asks if you have a weapon be honest and tell him where it is. Surveys of police reveal that most Officers are in favor of the law. Those opposed are some Chiefs and elected officials and their fears are mostly political.

Thanks for all the helpful posts. SilverRanger's www.packin.org was much appreciated. The Traveler's Guide to Handguns by Kappas is in the RV (I think). And MillionAirstream's stories crack me up.

I guess AZ would be one of those states. Only permit required is if the weapon IS concealed. Out in the open is OK with no registration or permit and as long as you are not a person that is a prohibited possessor. And no one is allowed to take guns to a school or to a polling place.

There is no difference if the gun is loaded or not. I believe the assumption is the gun is loaded.

So you may be in AZ at a campsite and have a loaded gun on you or by you as long as it's visible. No requirements for that.

I beleive as someone said earlier, if you carry a gun in your trailer and don't have it in view you should be ok. If you go around the campgrounds and talk about it or have it hanging inside the door so it can be seen by people passing by you might have a problem. I am not saying whether I carry a gun or not. But I will just say I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6. Marvin

Tennessee has a Carry Law rather than a Concealed Carry Law. If you have taken the required 8 hour safety course/range qualification, pay the $115 fee and have your carry card on you, then you can carry a loaded handgun in the open. Long guns are not included in this law and must be unloaded when being transported. I have only seen two individuals carrying in the open at other than gun shows (they must be unloaded when you enter). One was in a Walmart and the other was in a sporting goods store. Most of us carry concealed so that we do not alarm liberals and the unknowing who in turn call the police and report a "man with a gun". This can lead to unwarranted search, seizure and detainment.
