    I ran across this Federal law and didn't quite know what to make of it.

    Sec. 926A. Interstate transportation of firearms

    Notwithstanding any other provision of any law or any rule or regulation of a State or any political subdivision thereof, any person who is not otherwise prohibited by this chapter from transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful purpose from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to any other place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during such transportation the firearm is unloaded, and neither the firearm nor any ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the passenger compartment of such transporting vehicle:Provided, That in the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver's compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console.

    So does this mean we have to transport our firearms across state lines according to the clause above?

    You don't have to, but you may.

    If you are traveling through only States that recognize your permit/license, then as long as you don't violate the unique carry requirements of each State, you should be able to carry your pistol pretty much the way you do in your home State.

    The law exists to provide a mechanism for transporting your personal firearms across State lines when some of the States you pass through do not recognize your permit/license or when you do not have a permit/license.
