    Is it legal to keep a gun on the boat at the lake?

    Being State or city owned property. I'm just curious if it's really legal to keep a gun in your boat? I've always kept it in my boat since we sleep on it out on the water a lot. It really never crossed my mind if it's legal or not.

    You should have the mods move your thread to your state sub forum.

    Done - the query is state specific - laws vary.

    So "self defense" is only a valid exemption once one has asked for permission and paid the fee! Just who writes these laws?
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    there is an issue with carrying on corp of engineers land which can get tricky. Unfortunately you have to get out of your truck to walk ti your boat (or car) which gets grey. Such as parking lots and common areas. I never go to the lake so i never followed up.

    personally i have not kept up with it but it was a huge thing qhen open carry passed.

    Be careful seeking advice on Forums pertaining to law. Bad advice is often given from people who do not know or understand the law. Always read the law yourself and if you do not understand seek legal advice from a qualified legal expert. Following online advice can land you in legal trouble.
