I found no temporary solution,so we did not go. It would be nice to know if anyone has a recommendation.

Just because you've not heard of it doesn't mean it don't happen:

So I happened to read all 4 stories and none actually took place in an RV.
All were in mobile homes.

Folks, just a reminder that the rules of iRV2 permit discussion about firearms and firearm legislation that pertains directly to RV'ing. Let's not drift into off topic discussion. Here is an excerpt from the rules:
Quote:
General discussions of politics, general government policies, weaponry, gun rights and religion are not allowed in ANY areas of iRV2. Discussions about current or pending legislation or regulations, weapons and religion that directly pertain to RVing are acceptable but will be closed or removed if they wander off topic or become disruptive.

Same question as OP but change gun to pocket knife... Also a lethal weapon. If you are ok with someone carrying a pocket knife into your RV but not a gun, you are a bigot. Both are tools, both can cause grave bodily harm.

In some areas of the country a person carrying can be arrested if they show their weapon, even by accidentally, or say they have one with them. People with carry permits should observe the CAN'T policy, carry always never tell.

Check local VFWs or gun clubs in the area you are in. I have heard they will store your weapon until you return to the states.

"Dont ask; dont tell" hasn't worked very well in other areas of public policy--unlikely it will work for us RVers.....If you really feel strongly about this issues--two thoughts: 1] post a sign at the entry of your rig--"Gun, knife, box cutter, etc, Free Zone;" and 2] if you are invited to another rig, just stare intently at the host all night, eventually he'll give you the opportunity to ask about his carry policy....glad I could help....

Most criminals do prefer park models, that's just what I have heard....

I don't get it. I support the right of CCW in general. I claim that I have rights as a home owner. You toss out a flip answer dismissing my rights.

I guess you don't hold my rights in as much value as you hold yours.

At the border, the Canadian folks actually have a place for you to check your gun in. They lock it up for you, and you retrieve it on your way back through the same check point.

Pretty cool if you ask me. I wish EVERY state in the US that prohibits guns had the same thing. Maybe I just thought of a new business idea

No right answer. My "rights" versus your "rights." Sometimes they conflict.

Personally, I fall into the don't ask/don't tell. If you have explicitly said 'no weapons' at your RV, then I'd honor your request... it's your home. If you didn't, then I'd feel it was my private business. If I pulled it out, then if you objected, your rights rule (your home.) Come to my place, my rules.

Same way as if you said 'no smoking here' I might have a pack in my pocket, but as long as I didn't pull it out you'd have no reason to know. If I did, then my bad. Come to my place, expect my pipe.

Just about common sense, getting along, etc. IMHO.

1] Now you suggest that one actually advertise they are "defenseless"? LOL

2] Silly commentary and of little help.

Folks...

I believe that any RVer has the right to protect their home in any legal manner. They also have the right to NOT have anything or anyone they choose enter into that home. I don't care if that is booze/drunk person, drugs/druggie, guns, pets, a or whatever.

If a person with a CCW is afraid to visit a new neighbor's RV and feels that they are in such a dangerous position that they must carry...maybe that person shouldn't accept an invitation. When faced with that dilemma the person with a CCW can:

1] Graciously decline while CCW. This protects the CCW owner from divulging anything.

2] Ask if they can CCW into the home. This protects the home/RV owner from any untended/unwanted surprises.

3] Decide to leave weapon in their own RV/home.

That seems to me to protect the rights of everyone concerned.
