Gun transport laws - May 22, 2008, 10:48 AM

1). I don't have a CCW, not old enough.
2). My brothers getting married on Sunday in North Carolina, I figured it would be nice to go shoot right before the wedding.

How do I carry the weapon accross state borders? Can I do it legally? It's a bolt action 22LR.

Here's what I'm thinking, bolt in the locked glove box, ammo in the locked trunk, rifle in the locked case sitting in the back seat.

Will this cause any problems?

Transporting a gun across state lines can get confusing.

In Maryland if I get stopped speeding going to the gun range I can get in trouble if I am dumb enough to admit to carrying a weapon when they ask.
If I am going to the gun range technically I don't think I am allowed to stop anywhere even to get something to eat.

Call a gun shop and ask one of them about the laws, they are usually up on them, for taking one down but I have a feeling they will tell you don't!

If it's in a locked case in the truck not easily accessible and the ammos locked in the glove box, not easily accessible then you're golden

I don't know of a set age to own, but it's 18 to buy a rifle and 21 to buy a pistol or pistol ammo in Va

That's what I'm thinking. I don't want the hassle, just thought it would be nice. I was hoping someone was going to tell me if I follow A B and C it would be fine. Thanks anyway.

Transporting Firearms in Automobiles

Under federal law, a person is allowed to transport a firearm across state lines from one place where it is legal to possess firearms to another place where it is legal to possess firearms. The firearm must be unloaded and in the trunk of a vehicle. If the vehicle has no trunk the firearm must be unloaded and in a locked container (not the glove compartment or console). This federal law overrides state or local laws.
Many states have laws governing the transportation of firearms. Also, many cities and localities have ordinances restricting their transportation. Travelers must be aware of these laws and comply with the legal requirements in each JURISDICTION. There is no uniform state transportation procedure for firearms. Once you reach your destination, the state law—or, in some areas, municipal law—will control the ownership, possession, and transportation of your firearms.
It must be stressed that as soon as any firearm— handgun, rifle, or shotgun—is carried on or about the person, or placed in a vehicle where it is readily accessible, state and local firearms laws dealing with carrying come into play. If a person wishes to transport firearms in such a manner, it is advisable that he become aware of local laws by contacting the Attorney General's office in each state through which he may travel, or by reviewing an NRA State Firearms Law Digest. He should determine whether a permit is needed and how to obtain one. While many states require a permit for this type of carrying, most will not issue such permits to non-residents, and other prohibit such carrying altogether.

Per my web page quote above for example, DON'T go through DC and get caught with it even in the trunk!

He is traveling out of state so this doesn't apply!
