    Hello!

    Sometime lurker and first time poster. Pretty green as well. Finally decided to move on the issue and am currently waiting for THE CARD to come in the mail. As a result, lots of newbie questions, so go easy on me.

    Been thinking for a while about a cr trip and plan to carry on the trip and rather than post in each state thought this might be a netter way to ask questions re: travel, rights in various states, etc. Planning on a trip from MN to WI, IL, KY, TN, MO, IA and back home.

    While I think I've got a pretty good handle on MN law, looking for some guidance in these other states, while trying to avoid debate on OC vs CC and political merits/drawbacks. Please offer your thoughts on the following questions for the states I'm traveling through:

    1. OC legal yes/no

    2. CC legalyes/no

    3. Bars/restaurants yes/no

    4. Castle doctrine yes/no

    5. OC in a vehicle yes/no

    6. CC in a vehicle yes/no



    Thanks for your assistance and inputs. Hope I'm not asking you to produce too much info, but want a safe trip.

    Also, any particulars about Memphis would be appreciated.

    I'll quote from my 2010 copy of "the Travelers Guide to the Firearms Laws of the 50 States",
    but you should go to the Buckeye Firearms Association website & buy one. It's $18, and
    has LOTS of useful information.

    MKEgal, you are a generous person to be so helpful.

    The book is probably excellent. The only problem is that books get out of date. handgunlaw.us is a great reference for CC, and of course, this site contains good info for OC. Between the two, that covers pretty much everything you need to know, and they are kept pretty well up-to-date.

    MKEgal,

    Eye95 was spot on. You are very generous. Thanks for being willing to share. I wasn't evan aware such a resource exists, and sounds like it would be worth a read. Thanks also for the website info.



    Eye95, good point as well, and thanks also for the website info.



    I've seen in other posts the openness and willingness to shere on this board, and thank both of you, as well as all the others that took the time to read my questions.



    Safe travels thanks to you!

    This is only partially true. In Illinois it must be unloaded and "encased", but there is no provision that it be out of reach or in the trunk. IL's laws defining encased contain a clause that includes "or other container". The state Supreme Court has ruled that the "other container" provision includes the center counsel of a vehicle (see "State v Diggins").

    I have cited the statutes and case law in this thread- http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum21/39922.html

    per MO Revised Statutes Chapter 571 http://www.moga.mo.gov/statutes/c571.htm

    to clarify, the Bars/Restaurants thing is listed in the CC endorsement section. the establishment must gain revenue of 51% or greater from food to be legal, ie: a normal eatery.

    a loaded handgun is legal anywhere inside your vehicle including being on your person, OC or CC. a loaded rifle or shotgun is NOT legal. strange huh?

    Perhaps it was written to prevent hunting from vehicles.

    I am new to the Open Carry in Michigan and I was wondering if you are OC and you get in your vehicle to drive do you have to have a CC or does the OC still apply?

    Well, my friend.. first off, welcome to OCDO! Stay long, post often!

    Second... The best place to ask that question is in the Michigan forum. Open Carry, Conceal Carry, and vehicle laws vary VERY widely from state to state.
