I recently travelled to Nebraska for my neice's wedding, and because we carryon all what we took, I did not bring my CCW with me.
Now, heres a situation which may have gotten me in some deep $hit.
We flew United Air from Orlando to Chicage (O'hare) and was supposed to catch a connecing united flight to Lincoln. Long story short, the fligh to Lincoln was cancelled. we got stuck in Chicago overnight and flew to lincoln the next AM (thru Delta). IF I had taken my gun in checked bagage, they would have given me my bags and I would have taken them to the hotel with me, and then had to go thru the check inwith firearms at O'hare, in a state where CCW, an possibly handgun ownership, is NOT allowed. I do have a Florida resident permit. Would I have had a problem?
PS: Don't fly US AIr. They are no longer the friendly skys they used to advertise. They don't care when they cancel a flight and screw up your vacation. The flight was cancelled and I looked at the radar/weather map and tere was no good reason. Maybe, the flight was underbooked and cancelled for monitary reasons; I don't know. The personnel at O'hare were nasty to me and to others trying to get where they were supposed to take us.
