  • United States Code 18 Part 1, Chapter 44 (Federal Laws about Firearms!!)

    We have had a few brushes with folks not knowing FEDERAL laws about what you can and cannot do with a firearm lately, so I will post this here.

    I encourage everyone to start with the "Definitions" section, and slowly work your way through reading all of the sections.
    Federal firearms violations are really bad for your health and well being!!

      Thank You

      Thanks for posting that. I am planning a trip later this year that will involve driving through several states, and this info came at the right time for me.

      I know where I'm going has reciprocity, but there is one state on the way that may be problematic. Between your info and their state statute page I should be able to stay out of trouble.

        I sometimes travel by car with firearms from Florida to Maine and I dread to cross the state of NJ and NY. I make it a point to not leave the main highways or make any stops until I leave both states.

          I'm heading up to Virginia, and the thought of having to cross Georgia has me a little nervous. I know they honor my resident permit, but there are some laws up there that I'm having a hard time understanding as they are written. I plan to fill the tank near Fernandina and keep on driving until I hit South Carolina.

            Georgia? What laws are you worried about in Georgia? Georgia is a non issue when I travel by car.

              I check the NRA site for any updates to state laws before I make a trip outside of Florida, too. You never know when a state might change its rules for reciprocity. It also helps to find differences in laws for carry (like "Do you have to declare your weapon when pulled over?" or "Can you carry in a bar/church/stadium/state park?"

                Last time I drove and checked you could run from here to Michigan up I-75 without a problem. Never run I-95 or I-10 out of state.
