Podcast-This episode was a direct result of Patreon Member Russell Roberts. He gave me the topic idea some time ago and he happened to be in town, so we grabbed the mics and spit this episode for you. Lurch was also in the studio and weighed in. Russell Roberts is like many law abiding bikers out there and exercises his 2nd Amendment Rights to carry a firearm while riding his motorcycle when he legally can. He wants to follow the rules, but that can be confusing, especially when traveling across State lines. Different States have different rules. Some States have reciprocity agreements and may recognize another State's concealed carry permit. Other States don't recognize any permit except their own. In some States, you can open carry and in others, you can't. It gets just plain confusing for most. Lurch and I are full-time Law Enforcement Officers and can carry across all State lines and in places others can't. We forget all the rules regular citizens have to try and navigate.
This is why it was great to have Russell in the studio to give the perspective of a regular citizen and what he's learned. He gives some great advice and some great resources for bikers who want to carry a concealed weapon (see below resources). You really must listen to this entire episode if you are a motorcycle enthusiast and also exercise your right to carry a concealed firearm.

The one transport rule you missed is NJ, where you can transport thru the state to your destination, ie range, next state etc BUT you need to go DIRECTLY to your destination with no detours!
NJ does not recognize ANY permits and is virtually impossible to get a permit.
NJ has also been know to give LEO’s from other states a hard time when stopped and carrying even though it is federally allowed.

Good info. And yes, Android fanboys are everywhere. LOL
I live in a state that you can Open-Carry or CCW without a permit and no training. Without a permit, you are NOT allowed to carry beyond the state lines. To get a CCW permit requires the training class and thus reciprocity is limited to around 30 states.
The issue with no training classes required to carry is evident when you communicate with these folks with no training. Many of them literally think you can point a gun at someone or shoot someone and no charges will be filed by the DA. Many of them refuse to study the law or get training and go by listening to someone who has no idea what they are talking about. They balk at the idea of getting insurance through an organization like USCCA. Even met some who think it’s ok to drink and carry; that they can’t be arrested for it.
As much as I am for the 2nd Amendment, in today’s society I am all for requiring training in order to open-carry or ccw and then be allowed to carry anywhere in the US. I contacted my law makers to suggest this and was brushed off. Not a big concern for them to focus on I guess.
