    It sounds like under their laws it IS his business.

    Just a simple yes or no will do. Its not an open ended question,
    if he ask if you have any weapons, he mean on your person at the present time....

    No need to make things harder on yourself than they have to be

    Went thru the Canadian border a few years ago. After much talking, she chided me for not looking her in the eyes while talking! Eventually we got across, but I was sweating it for a bit. Had driven a long way to pickup a car, and did not want to get turned around.

    Myth. U.S. Citizens need no documentation to enter, remain in, or work in the United States.

    We can run all the same records checks on Canadians and Canadian registered vehicles as we can on US registered vehicles. I have a feeling we offer them the same courtesy.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Thanks for all the experiences and insight. If Colin ever finds out from the border guards what they can really see, I'd love to hear it. My responses were honest and fairly brief. I think I left out references to two black powder handguns and a P89...so maybe I was being a little paranoid about his being able to tell what I really did own. But I have relatives in Canada, and I sort of wanted in that day. And don't screw with these guys; my brother-in-law spent most of a day behind bars because his friends told a US guard he'd like two burgers with fries and a couple of Cokes. They took his car apart searching for drugs -- which fortunately for him, they didn't have, or the vehicle would have been confiscated to fund the War on Drugs.

    But you are wanting to enter his country under their laws. Our Constitution does not apply to other countries.

    Do you have any support for your myth busting? According to the Department of Homeland Security you are WRONG. See requirements for travel back to US by a US citizen here: DHS | Crossing U.S. Borders
