Also, for reference, this is the Federal Law you are talking about.

18 U.S. Code § 926A - Interstate transportation of firearms

Notwithstanding any other provision of any law or any rule or regulation of a State or any political subdivision thereof, any person who is not otherwise prohibited by this chapter from transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful purpose from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to any other place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during such transportation the firearm is unloaded, and neither the firearm nor any ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the passenger compartment of such transporting vehicle:



Provided, That in the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver’s compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console.
Thanks for the post. I particularly wanted to give some help and advise on the passenger aspect of travel, but got carried away a bit.

As to your question.

When we travel through what I call "Gun Free Zones", we secure the weapon in a gun safe and ammunition in another gun safe. We tow the AS with an F350 with a hard cover on the bed with a lock. I will store the weapons in there and the ammo in the Airstream or vice versa. If only traveling in the pick up or my wife's SUV I store the ammo in the gun safe and secure it in the very back and I store the weapons in another gun safe and that is put under the rear seat. Not to hide but to make unavailable to me or my wife and the ammo is separate as noted.

However, that said, despite have relatives in a number of gun free states and cities, I no longer travel to those areas as we cannot stop, legally. We meet either at our place or a "neutral" place. Plus, we avoid these areas as much as possible. When going west this past summer I stopped in an IN rest area, moved weapons and ammo and put them as noted and passed through IL. Then on other side reversed. Hassle, but try to follow individual laws. We no longer camp in any of these areas.

Many feel there is no need to carry, and in 99% of the cases they are correct. My feelings are pretty simple and basic. The average response time throughout the US to a 911 call is about 20 minutes, most incidents take less than 5 minutes. Second, I do not want my last thought to be, "Wish I had my gun". Third, I love guns, all kinds, always have and can't explain it, no one else in my family, either side would ever consider owning one. Last, my time in service gave me additional training, respect and insight into weapons and it's the respect that drove me to secure various credentials and permits. As I stated prior, if you are opposed to weapons, don't get one. If you want one for protection, think about it, think again and then take a firearms safety class to learn as much as you can and then make the final decision are my recommendations. Many people I taught never bought a weapon, which is good as they were never comfortable around one.

Be Safe

Bud

Teach them to treat all weapons as loaded, etc.
Right... because they might shoot their eye out!

When my daughter was in first grade I presented Eddie Eagle to the class. For those who may not know about the program, this is gun safety training aimed at elementary age children. It is pretty simple: Don't touch, leave the area, tell an adult. The materials are available from the NRA and were free when I presented them in the early 90's.

When I came back 3 years later to present again, this time to my son's first grade class, I learned that the teacher had presented the program each year on her own, and she thanked me for presenting and for bringing the program to her attention.

Point is that you do not need an official government program to do the right thing.

As for learning how to shoot, check out the local 4-H. Programs vary from county to county. Instruction and participation is age appropriate and supervised by a coach at all times. Your children also get to be around 4-H kids - kids I have found to be very respectful, polite, responsible, and ... Well, you get the picture. Even now, many years later, I find it easy to spot a 4-H kid after only a few minutes of conversation.

Happy AirStreaming!

I have found campgrounds in 50 years of camping to be very safe, except on the rare instance of theft, such as bikes, grills, coolers etc. Boondocking as well. Rest areas, public parking lots maybe not, although we have not had an issue, I know of some who have. I carry virtually everywhere I go, camping or not, therefore, my comments relative to carrying etc are not only for camping.

Because all the soccer mom's would have heart attacks!

BTW - Just last month my 6 year old daughter and I were watching Youtube video on the NRA "Eddie the Eagle" gun safety program. She liked it. We later followed this up with actually handling various guns, a face to face hard talk about guns, what to do if she sees one at a friends house and then we had some fun shooting the daisy bb gun at a target. She had a great time with our training and she was eager to do this several times since.

Nuvite-F is Correct

I am an NRA Training Counselor teaching rifle and pistol instructors how to teach others how to use firearms to defend themselves. I also teach NM Concealed Carry.
Because of ambiguity and complexity of traveling with firearms across state lines, I try to ensure that every student leaves with the Traveler's Guide to Gun Laws in the 50 States. I buy 'em by the case.
You ask if it's serious. Sadly, it's dead serious. Law abiding citizens can have their life changed forever for having a handgun in certain states, just as you can lose your life in NM if you and your travel trailer are abducted at a rest stop and you can't defend yourself.
