As a follow up I was able to qualify at a very small police department in the next county, about 80 miles from my residence. That PD has only 8 officers and the range officer was very accommodating. I'll have LEOSA coverage on my upcoming trip which will cover several states from Oregon to Mississippi and back.

Good deal. Some depts, even LASD, only will qualify their own deps. I thought this HR-218 was going to be a good thing. Turns out it is tough getting qualified. Officer in Chicago said it costs him $150 for 2 weapons. I don't think that is what the law was passed for.

I think the fees vary from location and or agency. I'd think the guy in Chicago could look around a bit and find a more reasonable cost but ??

I had a gun safe, capable of storing four long guns, custom made for our 5th wheel to protect our guns and valuables while traveling and while we are away from the trailer.

If in the future, I have to cross a firearm-unfriendly state, I'll just lock up all my guns in the safe. I don't expect that to be a problem though, there are enough states that allow me to exercise my 2nd Amendment right that I see no reason to enter a state where I am considered a criminal for trying to protect my family. They don't want me there, so I'll take my business elsewhere.

I agree with you 100%. I'm a retired Federal LEO and authorized to carry in any state, however I do not travel through any state that does not recognize my Florida CCW license.
It's a personal opinion based on 24 years of experience.

There is an app called LegalHeat that seems to do a nice job of summarizing the regulations in each state. kind of handy for doing initial research.

As a retired Fed LEO don't you meet LEOSA requirements so you can carry in every state? I am and do. I don't understand the need for Florida CCW.

I agree with the concept of taking myself and my business elsewhere if not wanted, but I currently live in Massachusetts, with my wife and kids. (16 and 12)

So, while I would like to do that, I cannot. I live in a people's republic (run by fools)

I come from Connecticut, which is not any better.

Some states, like these two, and several others on the east coast, are horrible at respecting my rights.

All that said, I try to comply with all the rules, and jump thru all the hoops, of my state and my neighboring states, where I work. Some are much easier to deal with than others.

As far as having a gun or not, or wanting one or not, as has been expressed, there is no law that requires you to have one, or want one. There are laws however that also require the government not to restrict the lawful ownership of them as well.

I have no gripe at all with those who do not want to have a gun for their own defense. I am a proud veteran who served to defend the rights for citizens to make these type of choices.

I do have a gripe with those who insist, or think I should make that same decision for myself. The Constitution obligates the government to not restrict my rights here.

One last thought. I saw a tee shirt that said that choosing to not believe in G-d or not want to have a gun is everyone's own choice. It went on to say, 'if a person breaks into the house, however, these same people will surely call someone with a gun, and pray to G-d that they arrive in time.

Some clothes are smarter than others. Smarter than most legislators as a matter of fact.
