OFCC webstore features MUST HAVE items for 2005 vacationers

Almost daily, OFCC receives questions from Ohio CHL-holders who are planning trips out of state, inquiring about the laws they must follow in the states the plan to travel in. Additionally, we receive frequent queries from out-of-state license-holders inquiring about the laws of the State of Ohio when they travel here. We have the answers!

Traveling outside of Ohio:

As you prepare to protect yourself and your family while traveling outside of Ohio on your Ohio Concealed Handgun License this summer, you are obligated to follow the laws in the states you travel. To familiarize yourself with these laws, you need the "2005 Traveler's Guide to the Firearm Laws of the 50 States".

Each state's laws regarding firearms possession and carry are radically different. While certain states allow a loaded handgun to be carried in the glove compartment, other states prohibit such carry and penalize it as a felony. Some even go as far as to make an unloaded handgun locked in the trunk illegal.

Travelers who carry firearms on a regular basis know full well the variant nature of this situation. A routine traffic stop for a speeding violation could turn into a nightmare journey through the criminal justice system if the traveler isn't aware of the proper way to carry or transport his firearms in a vehicle. Attorney J. Scott Kappas uses case law and statutory authority to render plain English advice as to how a traveler should carry firearms while visiting the many states of our great nation.

Kappas' book is not simply a restatement of the statutes. It is an easily readable narrative designed to unlock the complexities of state firearm laws. Four hundred thousand readers agree, the Traveler's Guide to the Firearm Laws of the Fifty States is indispensable for staying on the road and out of jail!
