RV, sorry, you've been misinformed, speak to a firearms instructor. My MO permit is valid in 38 states.

" If you have a permit to carry, that permit is valid only in your home state where you applied for it."

This statement is not true in all cases. Use this map Handgunlaw.us to see what states honors your carry permit. Click on the state that issued your permit to see all those that honor it.

There is also a section where carrying in an auto or rv is covered.

RV RoadTrip: The law varies, state to state. This link to the NRA has the profile for the specific laws in each state.
NRA-ILA | State Laws
The blanket statement by your law enforcement officers may apply to your state but it is far too simplistic for the complicated gun laws of various states.. (Look at Illinois and New York)

Federal Law states that a firearm may be transported between States without a license or permit if it is in a locked case not accessible to the driver. Most States accept that procedure. Some States will arrest you for possession of a firearm even if meeting those Federal requirements and let the State courts decide if you were legal. (If you stop to visit relatives, or go sight seeing, are you still transporting between states?)

Some states recognize a Motorhome as a "house" when parked and attached to campsite. But it's a vehicle when moving.

When traveling you have to consider the law in each state you will pass through....

Okay fellow RV'ers, since telling people what the Sheriffs Dept and the Police Dept told me and still people do not believe, then I will print you a copy of the PRINTED LAW which addresses RV's on the issue, here it is:

RV/Car Carry Without A Permit/License
16-11-126. Possession and Carrying a Concealed Weapon; Penalty for Violating Licensing Requirement (a)
Any person who is not prohibited by law from possessing a handgun or long gun may have or carry on his or her person a weapon or long gun on his or her property or inside his or her home, motor vehicle, or place of business without a valid weapons carry license. (b) Any person who is not prohibited by law from possessing a handgun or long gun may have or carry on his or her person a long gun without a valid weapons carry license, provided that if the long gun is loaded, it shall only be carried in an open and fully exposed manner. (c) Any person who is not prohibited by law from possessing a handgun or long gun may have or carry any handgun provided that it is enclosed in a case and unloaded. (d) Any person who is not prohibited by law from possessing a handgun or long gun who is eligible for a weapons carry license may transport a handgun or long gun in any private passenger motor vehicle; provided, however, that private property owners or persons in legal control of property through a lease, rental agreement, licensing agreement, contract, or any other agreement to control access to such property shall have the right to forbid possession of a weapon or long gun on their property, except as provided in Code Section 16-11-135. No Permit License Is needed to carry the firearm inside your Motor Vehicle either openly or concealed.
Note: The Court of Appeals ruled in (Hubbard v. State, 210 App. 141, 143-44 1993) that if you do not have a permit/license honored in your state you can only carry a firearm in "Your Own Vehicle." This means you can carry in "Your Own Vehicle" without a permit/license but if you are riding in a vehicle that is not yours you must have permission of the person who has legal control of the vehicle

I do not understand why there is an issue on here, people still want to post their opinions instead of the "LAW" and the law is plain, you DO NOT have to have a Permit to Carry in your motorhome or YOUR OWN vehicle.

Forgive my confusion. I agree that this section states you may carry in your MH. I cannot find anywhere in this section of the law where it states that a concealed carry permit is only valid in your own state, which is the assertion in the previous post that so many have had issue with. If you would be so kind as to tell me what state this law is from, I would love to read the other sections. Also of note is that this law is a state law and only applies there.

This is the law for the state of Georgia. Each state has their own laws. If you are going to carry across state lines you will need to know the laws of the state you are traveling in.

RV, your earlier statement was regarding a person with a conceal carry permit, now your discussing gun owners rights. This is 2 seperate issues.

As I count a permit issued in Georgia is valid in 22 states.

We recently bought our first motorhome this march and went camping with friends and family. As I was showing of the rv the kids were jumping on the back bed and my 10 year old son had opened when of the cabinets above the bed, he found a 9mm in a case, opened it up pulled the gun out, my two friends young daughters and my 4 year old niece were still jumping, when he yelled up to us adults to ask us if the gun is a toy. I couldn't believe my eyes and I didn't want to scare him as he has never seen a real gun before, I just told him to put it in the cabinet and then I grabbed all the kids off the bed. The other two moms were pretty shaking up, i told my hubby to come in and get the gun and secure it.
Turns out it wasnt left by the previous owner, it belonged to my husband who had just been given the gun by family to keep in the RV, jus in case.
The gun is no longer with us, but thankfully the kids are. If you are going to carry a gun, get proper training and make sure the whole family respects it.
What you really should do is train you children in the safe and proper use of a handgun, not scare them. "Eddie Eagle" is just such a program that some schools use to teach gun safety.

You still have to abide by the other states laws and requirements.

Exactly, but RV said a permit in his state is only valid in his state.

I by no mean disparage any gun owner. That is everyone's right in this country. I personally choose not to have one, I offered some information and many on here
Disputed the validity. My only reason for the link.
The problem with wickipedia is that anyone can post anything they want on a subject and it's not checked for validity.
For instance, in the US most gun deaths are suicides, yet they're counted the same as murders. That changes the chart.

That's why a lot of gun owners load their own, then no one but they get to decide who has ammo.
