As some of you might know I am traveling to Maine this summer for vacation. I have applied for my Maine non-resident permit. I know I have to travel thru some pretty nasty anti-gun states along the way. NJ, NY, CT, and MA. I have collected a nice page to take a long of each states statutes and laws regarding transportation of a handgun, in addition to the federal interstate transporation law. Each state until MA is rather standard unloaded, ammo seperate and locked up in the trunk... not so in MA
According to NRA-ILA:
"Caution--Massachusetts has enacted one of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, imposing a mandatory one-year jail sentence for anyone illegally possessing a firearm, loaded or unloaded, "on his person or under his control in a vehicle." In all cases, all firearms must be transported as prescribed in the general rule"
I don't not want to carry for a week while in ME just because I can't transport my gun thru the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts for one hour... this is ridiculous. Don't federal transportation laws protect me here? Someone help...
