Anyone else feel this way?

I live in a very gun friendly state. I know where I can carry and where I can not. (legally)
Only recently did I come across an old (law) that prohibits carrying in Speedway Indiana.
Although no one I know of has ever been arrested and convicted; it is a concern to me.
Speedway Indiana is where the Indy 500 takes place, for you non-hoosiers. LOL

It seems to me there are so many (too many) laws; municipal ordinances, local, city, state, buildings, parks etc...

If I decide to travel to other states, it seems a daunting task to be aware of (ALL) these variances.

Given the current political climate, I'm not so sure I want to carry in other states for fear of arrest because I did not
know of some silly little law still on the books. It used to be my vacation prep was a simple matter of planning where I want to go, the costs, check the map and go.
Now I have to research every single possibility of concerning where and where not to carry.

Sure; I might prevail if arrested, but the cost would be prohibitive I'm sure.

Too many laws..far too much variance in the laws...and hard to dig out black letter law concerning this given too many laws and constant changes locally in each state.

Even full reciprocity with certain states does not guarantee I can carry in the same places which I am allowed in Indiana.

I agree its rediculous. All our goverment knows how to do is react to a situation and make a law about it. Oh and waste our $ but that's another topic entirely. Laws don't prevent things from happening. All they do is allow someone to be punished after the fact. There are WAY too many laws about WAY too many things that now there is no sense of personal responsibility and common sense.

Yes, it's tough to be a law abiding citizen.

While I no longer favor national reciprocity especially if the Federal government is involved, I would like all states to have State preemption. All laws regarding carry (and prohibited places) must be state law, eliminating the patchwork of municipalities and counties that may differ from state law.

I would like to see all states honor all other state's permits, just as we do with driver's licenses. But I don't care to see federal regulation of that. Just an agreement between all states.

Yep, it belongs in the states' hands. Incidentally, to your above comment, I used almost the exact same wording in my communications with my state reps when a preemption bill was working its way through our State House.

Just remember that "concealed means concealed" and "better tried by 12 than carried by 6".

It does make it tough. Luckily In Florida the State to sole ownership of laws covering concealed carry and cities/counties can't override the State by put a few have tried and got slapped down.
