Question State Gun Laws Web Site?

My usual RV travels go across country from my home in Northern Virginia and throughout the West and Canada. I often travel in areas where cell phone service is non-existent, so I feel I need to carry firearm protection against intruders.

I know laws about transporting of firearms vary from state to state. Is there is a single web site that lists the relevant laws for each state rather than having to navigate the web for each individual state?


Anyone know of such a web site?

State Gun Laws Web Site?

Buckeye Firearms Association puts out a book each year with updated laws from each state. They are quite involved across the country and have been to the Supreme Court numerous times to testify etc.

A piece of advice I got from one of those sites is:

IF you're ever asked, tell them that the gun is in the cabin part of the coach, not near the driver's compartment.

The Cabin is your House, and that has difference search requirements, like a subpoena, and having a gun in your house might be legal in states that don't allow guns in your vehicle.

The option of telling them that you don't have a gun on-board remains, but some states (like NJ) will run tag numbers from out-of-state vehicles in order to cross-reference whether owner has gun permit, then stop the vehicle for something and see if they can find a gun. Big bucks for them, big headaches for the traveler.

I would highly recommend you don't try crossing the border into Canada with a handgun on board.
Besides, there are no Boogie Men in Canada.

Make sure whatever reference you're using is kept up-to-date. Laws change. We stayed in the boonies 95% of our full-timing 16 years and never felt uncomfortable because we didn't have cell service.

Don't forget about the ammunition laws! New Jersey has some strict laws on hollow point ammo that are harsh and excessive!

X2 - cant take a hand gun into Canada and allow about an hour for a temporary registration on a rifle or shotgun. And always declare what you have when asked. Last time through I wasn't asked about firearms, but I would always expect to be asked and always answer honestly.
