    Carrying on the Res

    What's the law regarding carrying on reservation land, ie casino and such? I would assume they have different laws from the federal and state but don't know where to look or what they are. I would bet only res police can carry.

    Don't do it. IIRC you will need the permission of the tribal police to even possess a firearm on the reservations.

    I never understood that. They are their own body per say but still able to vote.

    Sovereign nations, they have their own laws

    Their laws commonly mimic state and federal laws, but each tribe has its own unique things.

    If you are on state-owned highways, you should/might be OK, but once you are on land owned by the tribe, you will probably be denied your 2A rights under their laws.

    For instance on the unique laws, in this entire country an employer cannot legally discriminate on race, but in LDF, they have a hiring/promotion priority for natives, It does not matter if you are perfectly qualified for the job you are applying for, if some know-nothing shows up, and he is native, they will get hired before you even though they are not qualified to do the job they are hired to perform.

    Check with the reservation, each is different. I know several in AZ prohibit carrying on their land, except on state/federal highways that are on their land. The reservation near me in Baraga informed me (though it was several years ago) that they don't have any additional laws regarding firearms.
