I don't carry a gun.
The answer to your question is Yes. Were you in the service or law enforcement? I was in both. I respect what a weapon can and cannot do. The same is true with your mindset, let your training kick in if the need arises. I can live with my decisions and I'm comfortable with it. I'm happily retired and enjoying the RV life. Do I still carry? I'm not answering.

Your motorhome is considered to be your home in AZ only when you are in a paid campground. If boondocking it is not you home. This is from the AZ CCW class I took in Quartzite at the RV show this year. So unless you have a CCW the gun needs to be unloaded and the ammo stored in a different location.

I was having dinner with my step-son on Aug 7, 2000. Declaration night for desert storm. Went to drop him off at Fort Belvoir that evening. Well all posts were searching every vehicle. They let me through and instructed me to drop him off at his barack and depart post haste.

That's rich. Back home that's what we call turning a firearm into a blunt instrument.

Very true. You loose something you will never get back. I wish the experience on no one. Been on both ends of the barrel and that is why I carry. I hope it remains concealed.

I don't think that's true. I just read AZ open carry law. No permit required for open carry, including in a vehicle

Sometimes I do, Sometimes I don't. Anyone in contact with me has to determine which.

Not all military bases will allow you to check a firearm into their armory. Many just do not allow it. know the laws for where you are gong. Most Federal installations do not allow firearms, or firearms inside Federal buildings.

Edited: Isn't it funny that you cannot legally carry firearms in many places, but the people who are not legal do not concern themselves with that fact. So my restricting firearms in military RV parks just doesn't add up when a visitor who has not regard for the law is carrying a firearm.

For those RV'ers who are carrying firerams, if you violate a law of any type while carrying in your motorhome or on your person, you may forfeit your firearm, and pay a hefty fine, and even some jail time.

Happy trails.

Not true for AZ and 10 other states who have Open Carry. This law preempts all existiing gun laws and allows you to carry on foot or in a vehicle without any licence. Basically your 2nd Amendment Rights as intended. Most states without open carry do make a distinction in an RV as you state..... but not exactly.

The distinction most states use is parked and hooked up to utilties. So if you are dry camping in a paid campground, that probably won't fly. At least I wouldn't want to test it.

A gun is a tool and that is all.

And yes I do pack 90% of the time and this is why.


13 year old kid shot dead after attempted robbery (Justified)--Birmingham

http://blog.al.com/spotnews/2012/05/jefferson_county_das_office_sa.html

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama --- The Jefferson County District Attorney's Office has ruled that the fatal shooting of a 13-year-old during a robbery attempt last week was justifiable, Birmingham police said today.

In addition, said Birmingham police spokesman Sgt. Johnny Williams Jr., there will not be any charges filed against any of the people with Ja'Quares Walker when he attempted to rob a couple at Skyview Condominiums in Birmingham.

Efforts to reach District Attorney Brandon Falls for comment were unsuccessful.

The shooting happened one week ago today about 11 p.m. Police said Ja'Quares approached a couple in an SUV as it pulled into the gated southwest Birmingham complex where a woman in the vehicle lived. He was wearing a T-shirt covering his face, and was brandishing a loaded and cocked pistol as he demanded them to get out of the car.

The driver pulled a gun and shot Ja'Quares multiple times, hitting him in the chest and abdomen. The teen was pronounced dead on the scene. Police refused to identify the man or woman in the car, saying only that the man who fired the shots was a 35-year-old white man.

Investigators said today there were five other people in the car with Ja'Quares. They were interviewed, along with the couple in the car, Williams said.

Ja'Quares' mother, Latonya Walker, has said that her son was in the front yard of their east Birmingham home when someone in a red Chevrolet Trailblazer stopped and picked him up. She said her son told her he was going to the store, but never returned home.


She reported him missing several hours later. About 3:30 p.m. the following day, she was notified of his death.

Ja'Quares was a seventh-grader at Martha Gaskins Middle School where he was the football team's quarterback.

Ja'Quares will be buried Saturday at Zion Memorial Gardens following an 11 a.m. service at Living Stone Temple Church.
