Travel in California
« on: August 11, 2016, 05:21:20 PM »
I know we can't carry a loaded gun on our person nor can we have a loaded gun in our car or truck, the gun needs to be unloaded and secure in a gun safe or locked glovebox with annunciation in a separate location.  QUESTIONS: 1) we will be pulling our 5th Wheel, which is our home since we live in it Full-Time, can we have our loaded guns in the RV while it is being pulled? 2) when we are staying in our RV in an RV park, can we have a loaded gun in our "home" (RV)?  3) Is there anything else we need to know while in California? And 4) while traveling through New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada what should be know to be in compliance with their laws?  Thanks in advance for your reply.  Mike

Regmikewall,

Assuming that you have your Texas License to Carry, all of the states prior to your arrival in California will recognize your permit. However, once you cross over into California, you will not be able to have a loaded weapon in your car or in your 5th wheel.

Since each state is has varied laws and specific nuances, please call in and speak to your program attorney who can discuss each state.

A followup  question, you said "..you will not be able to have a loaded weapon in your car or in your 5th wheel. " If my 5th wheel is parked as is being used as "our home" while we stay for 3 months in one place" - Question - Will this make a difference?

Regmikewall,

The California Penal Code Section 25605 would seem to show that you could lawfully possess a firearm in your inhabited residence, however given the variance in laws throughout the state, you should contact law enforcement in the area you will be staying to confirm the legality prior to making your trip.
