Rather than give you old (2001) info, here's the Horse's Mouth with the current info:

http://www.cfc-cafc.gc.ca/info_for-renseig...s/default_e.asp

Essentially, you have to buy a permit for yourself and then register your long gun (and renew that every 60 days before it expires) -- I was able to do both at the border -- Do NOT state self-defense as a reason except in bear country against bears.

If I may...

There is a federal law that to summarise states:

That if the firearm is legal in the state you are orignating from, and the state you are going to... and you are not making any 'excessive' stops along the way (ie... overnight is OK, but not 3 weeks visiting Great Aunt Martha)
So long as the weapon is in a locked case, unloaded and separate from the ammo.

You're good.

This occurred after a gentleman's plane was diverted to a different state than the one he was intended to hunt in and he was charged with the possession. (Nothing he could do)

So, when asked... Your going directly out of the state.

Also, Florida has a CCW which is recognized in over 30 other states. Cost is $117 and I believe they just upped it, from being good for 5 years to 7.

Here is a good resource. The sidebar on the left specifically addresses some of the stated concerns.

If I may be of further service, please ask.

Please remember too, that is a privately owned site. Not a legal authority:
"You are responsible for validating your own information.". Gun laws are very complicated. Additionally, there are not just individual state laws, but county laws and city ordinances.

In Oregon for instance:

"ORS 166.173 Authority of city or county to regulate possession of loaded firearms in public places."

Ignorance is not a defense.

It is true that it is not a legal source, but it is a good place to start, (And some of the replies here worried me) EVERY small local has the ability to further regulate loaded weapons... (Note the loaded) except in some states where the state Connstution forbids it. (Confused yet)

Also like some said, in the RV/trailer... it is often considered your home... requiring a warrant...



You CAN travel with firearms, often loaded, sometimes not... but you can take them with you (See the part about the federal law)

[b]Court blocks rule allowing guns in national parks
By MATTHEW DALY, Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal judge has blocked a federal rule allowing people to carry concealed, loaded guns in national parks and wildlife refuges.

A decision issued Thursday by U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly overturns a rule issued in the waning days of the Bush administration.

The rule took effect Jan. 11 and allowed visitors to carry a loaded gun into a park or wildlife refuge as long as the person has a permit for a concealed weapon and the state where the park or refuge is located allows concealed firearms. Previously, guns in parks had been severely restricted.

The Obama administration had said it was reviewing the Bush rule but had defended it in court.

my firearms are in my trailer (my home), and, my concealed-carry permit is honored in about 30 states ... I also still have my expired CCW permits from other states, with me, too ... I get along well with cops, and my multiple-permits assure that I'm likely to be one of the 'good guys' ... your appearance and disposition 'on the side of the road' has a lot to do with how you're treated by Law enforcement ...

When seconds count...!

When seconds count, the police may be only a few minutes away.
They can't be everywhere at once.

Can't think of any reason in the world to visit and/or spend money in a state that doesn't think my safety as important as their highest ranking official's safety. If forced to drive through it, I will eat and buy fuel before entering or after leaving. What part of "shall not be infringed upon", don't they understand?

Anyone carrying any type of defensive gadget should be well versed in it's use. That takes lots of practice on a regular basis.

I learned items 1-3 (below) many years ago, in a tactital defense class.
Disclaimer: They were and still are helpful to me. They may or may not be helpful to you. Use your best judgement according to the laws in the area you are in.

For a crime to be committed the Bad Guy needs 3 things.

1. The desire. They have to know you have something they want. If they don't see it or hear about it, you are not likely a target, unless you are the only opportunity they have. If you are disabled on the side of the road at night, you are a target!

2. The ability. They are bigger, stronger, can catch you by supprise, or out number you. Be totally aware of your surroundings. If that is impossible, move to another location. A face full of pepper spray, a bright light into their dialated eyes at night, and/or extremely loud noises to attract attention of others can temporarily or permenately remove the ability, or the desire, or both. Then there are more lethal stratigies as a very last resort.

Don't show your defense in hopes of scaring a BG off. They should not know you have it, until it is in use.

3. The opportunity. Avoidance is the best defense. Don't stop, or camp in isolated places. Always keep in mind, "Is this an opportinity for someone to do me harm"? Sometimes "Stuff" just happens. So be prepared (see # 2). Never deliberately go somewhere with a weapon that you wouldn't go without one.

Kip

Steve Lee has more money than me. I can't afford lots of those foods to eat much less to shoot. LOL

Strangely enough, I know a man who lives near Wells Gray Provincal Park. He owns 300 acres. He also has a .44 Magnum which is legal for him to have because of bears. Go figure.

We don't carry a gun but have found that crossing at the low traffic crossing results in more thorough inspections, probably because they have time on their hands.

As well while crossing at near Thousand Islands in NY we had our entire motorhome xrayed, It was an unbelievable experience, After the x-ray four guys went thru the motorhome because they saw two six packs of soda under the bed.

Maybe it's our lisence plate "Live Free or Die", NH the state without sales or income tax. Oneof the Canadian crossing inspectors mentioned it to us.

We do carry bear spray, but do not consider it pepper spray.

They x-ray looking for drugs hiding in secret compartments, I live south of a border patrol checkpoint in Tx. Two six packs of pop may look like drugs on the x-ray. They just caught someone here recently with a large amount of weed covered with dirty laundry.

Hi Pamela,
If you are full timing, especially if you travel by yourself, I can understand your interest in self defense. I know a number of women who travel by themselves and it's always a concern. Although a small shotgun will probably pose less of a problem as far as regulations are concerned, you will be dividing your time between driving, getting in and out of your tow vehicle and also spending time in your trailer. You will either have to keep separate defense items in both your trailer and TV or carry it with you as you move around. You may find it more convenient to carry a knife. A knife is likely to be legal in more places and can be carried on your belt where it's apparent you're armed.
An interesting topic for sure.
Cheers,
Barrie
