Federal Law is supposed to beat any state gun law when traveling through a state. To me that means I can have a gun in the car if I'm traveling up the North East corridor but I'd better have it unloaded and locked in a seperate metal container locked in the trunk. The ammo is stored in a separate locked container and I'd better not plan on spending the night but rather pass right on through. It's not worth the effort so I don't go to the NE or I leave my gun at home.

I check the individual state gun laws before I leave home. My VA CCP is valid in about 6 other states but not GA so I have to carry open. That's ok, everyone in the North GA mountains carries open. The CCP to get is FL. It is recognized in something like 27 other states. I've never applied because it's costly and I don't travel so much anymore but FL is a must issue state so it's easy to get. You can do it all on line.

Without a doubt states with CCPs have lower crime rates because no one wants to take the chance that Grandma is carrying. VA is a good example because it's easy to compare it to the District or Maryland. Take care, Lisa

grumpy, that Florida link is particularly interesting to me, because I had to travel to Dade County for work around the time of the Miami riots of 1982 (IIRC). I recall that people in some offices relocated their work areas away from the line-of-sight of windows to avoid stray bullets, even after the riots were "over". Based on that, I would guess that at least some of those local restrictions didn't come from liberal gun-control extremists, but maybe were more like acts of desperation. I'm not saying they were effective, right, or even lawful. However, it seems like gun proponents might want to look beyond the liberals, and give thought to ways that more effective penalties for the misuse of guns might be a way to support greater gun freedoms. Does that make any sense?

I was working in Miami in 84-85, I had ordered tool boxes & tools for all the techs on the elevated transit system & the complaint I got was there wasn't room in the boxes for their gun. In any event once just about anyone could CC the crime rate dropped like a rock at least for awhile. All the bad guys became less brave when they believed that their victims might be able to shoot them.
