Interstate Firearm Carry Guide

Anyone know where to get one and how much they cost?
A buddy got sick while on the road with guns and this book kept him out of jail.
He was legal.
The police thought he was not.
He educated them.
A spiritual event in my opinion.
He did the right thing.

**Important**Addendum

The vehicle was no longer under my buddies control control due to illness and he was concerned about the secuity of the firearms and locked up ammunition while hospitalized. My buddy asked the police to take posession of locked up firearms and ammunition to ensure continued security until his recovery/release from hospital.

The on the beat police and the immediate supervisors worked very hard to come to an appropriate resolution to a legal question of posession/transport of the traveler's firearms.
My buddy and the police worked together to work out misunderstandings about the state laws.
He ended up sharing with the officers the Firearm Owners' Protection Act (FOPA).
After a few minutes on their computer the officers released the firearms to my buddy.

The buddy wants everyone to appreciate the respect he feels for the officers on the beat and their immediate supervisors.
He also appreciates the value of the "Travelers Guide to the Firearm Laws of the 50 States."
Could you imagine what could have happened if he did not have this guide?
Let me put it this way, Bernie Madoff would have been out of jail sooner.

Found this useful:

NATIONAL AND STATE PARKS
Generally, firearms have been prohibited in national parks. At the current time, to transport firearms into or through a National Park, the firearms must be made temporarily inoperable or are packed, cased or stored in a manner that will prevent their ready use. Violators are subject to arrest.
However, on May 20, 2009, Congress adopted legislation that prohibits any rule or regulation prohibiting the possession of an operational firearm if the individual is in legal possession of the firearm and if possession of the firearm is in compliance with the laws of the state in which the park or refuge is located. This new law will take effect on February 22, 2010. Until that date, operable firearms remain prohibited in National Parks.
Rules in various state park systems vary, so always inquire first.

I have bought this one several times over the years, for reference. It is quite comprehensive and up-to-date. I believe the author is an attorney. Bought the '09 edition last year and will probably get the 2010 version as laws keep changing. Knowledge is power; know your rights and the laws if you are going to carry/transport.

quantity purchase discount

That's cool, FastRob, buying ten -- I'd get my copy cheaper and have nine left over for great birthday and Christmas presents. I'm not sure I can use that many copies, but I'll think it through before I replace mine. Thanks for mentioning this,

Jim

Great thread. Few years back, after reading up what I could find on this topic, I decided a Mossberg Cruiser was the way to go

at 30.5", it's handy, very effective, 8 shot, and not classified as a handgun- reducing (eliminating?) permitting and transporting issues.

The tactical version (matte finish, 5+1 shot) was my first choice, but at 28" overall length, it presented licensing issues.

since you brought it up

finalcutjoe,
I like the Cruiser too, but don't understand your statement about licensing issues for 28" overall and need for 30.5" Not that there's much difference between them, but what's the requirement?

The National Firearms Act (NFA) prohibits a barrel length less than 18 in. or 46 cm for a pistol-grip weapon and prohibits overall length less than 26 inches for a shoulder-fired weapon.

Does your state have a more restrictive rule?

Sorry, Moderators, I guess this seems a little off-topic. But not really, it does bear on States Laws.

This is very on topic: Staying safe, obeying the law and Airsreaming.
A rile can have 16" barrel. A shotgun requires 18" and there is an overall length requirement as well. Having said that I am not a lawyer or an expert. Canada has shorter rules or longer depending, so be careful.
