Trying to keep this within bounds...

There are places like US Parks the specifically prohibit fire arms. I'm not saying it is right or wrong but what penalties can be invoked if violated? Banning, Jail, beating with a wet noodle?

Actually, concealed weapons are allowed in National Parks as of a couple years ago, as long as you are a legal concealed weapon carrier in that state.

I remember reading an article, ( maybe in the American Rifleman ) about a couple in a motor home at a rest area somewhere along a highway. Middle of the night, they heard people outside, heard the try the door...then went to get something from their trunk..probably a tire iron...
He got out of bed, grabbed his shotgun...just before they tried to pry the door open..He made a statement loud enough for them to hear...something like, " I'm hear with a shotgun and if you think it won't go through an aluminum wall, continue doing what your doing " at that point he pumped a round into the chamber...they took off really quick...He went back to bed....case closed...

I always keep my Glock next to the bed...in my motor home and at home in Fl.

To disclose more would, in my opinion, be somewhat risky.

Along with GLArnold, I do not discuss my personal security arrangements, other than to say I feel they are more than adequate, and one should probably be very careful entering any RV without knocking...

Thank you for that. Here is a link that has an article that discusses some of the complications.

Glacier Park officials: Rules about guns in national parks not so simple

Again, please ignore any political overtones. My intent is to show that parks crossing state lines can be complicated as it the need to understand each state's laws regarding this subject. (I'm not there yet. LOL)

So...I guess the question on penalties is still open for comments and that could still include a National Park under certain circumstances. Even beyond that, if you are transporting a weapon through a state like Illinois that has strict carry requirements, I would assume that there are interesting potential outcomes.

If you have a weapon (firearm) in your coach you should have a copy of the Gun Law Guide. If you do not, you could find yourself in a very serious situation should you be stopped in a state such as New York, New Jersey or Illinois.

And you need to check for update on a regular basis. New Mexico just added not accepting Texas CHL permits as Texas will issue a CHL to a legal resident of the US. New Mexico now requires you to be a citizen of the US.

While I refuse to answer this question, I will tell you that it is a dangerous area to tread. While a may be tempted to carry a weapon, the difficulty of complying with the laws every place we might go are simply too daunting to make the effort worth my while.

As we frequently have and do transit through Canada, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey, it just became too much bother. It is even is illegal to use wasp spray on a person in Michigan. This doesn't mean I wouldn't do it.

I am thinking I need to get a "Castle Doctrine" map to carry.

We camped in Illinois this last weekend. I had to stop & lock unloaded firearm in a hard case. With the ammo locked in a seperate location. Once we arrived at campground, & plugged in, set up I was able to have firearm out of case & loade as long as it stays inside the rv.

When you are faced with a situation where you have to actually point a revolver at a person and pull the trigger you will experience something you never ever want to experience again.

I don't carry a gun.
No, but I did once have to show a couple of "gentlemen" that I wasn't going to be a victim. The left hurriedly. It was in my RV in Wyoming BTW.
