Instead of a handgun, I'm going to purchase a Taser. They are not licensed and you can buy them at Walmart. They will knock a man down and keep him down, without danger of killing him. No CC permit required, for almost the same level of protection.
Hmmm... Good suggestion.

And, the come in the convenient iStun model:

I tend to avoid going to places that don't allow me to protect myself or my family.

New Jersey often treats the Federal Firearm Statutes as an "affirmative defense" - Any doubt about your transporting a weapon or "parts" , or proceeding by the most direct route, may result in your arrest and the judge will decide if you meet the Federal standard.. Discussion went into-- transporting a handgun in vehicle was legal but taking luggage containing a handgun into a motel room violated NJ laws..

New Jersey statutes specifically prohibit a person from possessing hollow nose, dum-dum, or armor piercing bullets (other than law enforcement). Possession is of a crime of the fourth degree.(up to 18mos/$10K)
Note that the statute does not require the ammunition be in a weapon, or even near a weapon. Indeed, no weapon is required at all. Simply having a single bullet in your pocket is sufficient to be found guilty of this serious charge. Not 22 cal ammo.

And you know it's shared"?

Same for WA, private and only in the state records I'm told it shows up when the DL is run. WA made it illegal to share the CPL info.

I routinely hear concealed carry license information being given over the police scanner when plates are ran before the vehicle is even stopped. If you have a CC permit and are stopped in Indiana, it's likely the officer will ask you if you're carrying a weapon as a result. If you are, they will run the serial numbers to make sure it isn't a stolen weapon. I don't know if this has been contested in court yet, but it sure smacks of violation of rights on several levels. If the state that issued your CC permit has signed an agreement of reciprocity with Indiana, your permit is honored here.... but by complying, you get your serial # in their ever-expanding data base. I don't know how many other states are doing this now, probably more.

As far as New York is concerned, I remember reading where Armored Car employees were arrested for illegal possession of firearms when they entered the city. It's gotten worse since then, I believe. Now, possession of only a magazine that can hold more than 8 rounds is illegal, no gun required to be charged & jailed.

I'm not trying to stir up a hornets nest, but separating your firearm into all its parts and locking each one up separately still is no guarantee that you will be "legal". They want all citizens & visitors disarmed, period. Common sense has no part in it, and much of the east coast shares the same sentiments. You may have the Constitution on your side, but they have most of the politicians and courts on theirs. I won't go there, can't afford the attorney fees.....

IL has recently changed some due to a Supreme Court ruling. It's gotten better.

790.0601 Public records exemption for concealed weapons.—(1) Personal identifying information of an individual who has applied for or received a license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm pursuant to s. 790.06 held by the Division of Licensing of the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is confidential and exempt from disclosure.

It was explained that it does not appear when Drivers license is run. The data base is available through FL. Dept of Agriculture as a separate inquiry by law enforcement when required by official duties....

As it seems to happen way too often with gun topic threads they seem to go very far afield of the original post as well as trample on iRV2 Community Rules.
