Re: defense shotgun?
TexasClodhopper - 1/2/2008 7:47 PM And now back to the topic of this thread ... PLEASE! Four Winds asked:
I am not an attorney (thank God) nor an expert in gun law. This is just what I have been able to dig up from other sources.
Is it legal to carry a shotgun in all states? All 50 states allow the transportation of firearms in motor vehicles for all lawful purposes and 48 states allow the carrying of firearms in vehicles for personal protection, in some manner. More than one of every four of America`s 65-80 million gun owners carries a firearm in his or her vehicle for protection. Under the federal McClure-Volkmer Act, private citizensmay travel with firearms legally in the U.S. provided they obey certain provisions of the law. (NRA Fact Sheet)
Will you be allowed in state and federal parks? It is not legal to personal carry a firearm in a National Park. This doesn't mean it can't be transportedin your vehicle ifallrequirements are met.
What type would be the best to carry? Can't help here since my experience is with handguns.
Any other questions that would apply?
