With each passing year, the nuances of legally traveling with firearms become more important to understand, especially with state and federal courts changing the rules from one year to the next. What's permitted in one state might make you a felon the minute you cross state lines—even if all was just fine when you did it last year. And what about carrying in hotels, restaurants, state parks and more?
There is one way to be sure law-abiding gun owners stay that way, and that is to refer to the Traveler's Guide to Firearms Laws of the Fifty States, now in its 27th year, and updated for 2023. Here's what you'll find in the new edition:
