    Exclamation Travel from Florida to Texas

    To the moderators, I hope this is where this goes.

    A friend of mine, who does not have a CC license (in process), will be traveling this weekend from Florida to Texas via Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. I just don't have the time to look all this up and would appreciate the knowledge from those here on this matter.

    As far as travel in and through these states, would she be able to carry a pistol with her in her car? Can she have a knife (folder or straight edge) on her? And if so, what size limit. How about some kind of Spray? Bottom line is what are her options for self defense?

    Thanks for your help!

    Once she reaches Texas she can legally have a loaded concealed handgun in her car but she cannot carry it concealed outside the vehicle.As far as other states,she would probably have to have it locked up seperate from the ammo in the trunk or rear cargo compartment per federal traveling law

    Look up each state's laws...take the time to do so if you plan on using a firearm along the way.
    If you don't take the time, perhaps you can pay a lawyer to do it for you later...
