The deal here is, I am flying tomorrow from North Carolina to New Mexico with a stop in Georgia. I will be bringing my 1911 with me in my checked baggage. And I have already read the TSA's, Delta's, and United's regulations on flying with firearms and I will be traveling in accordance with them. Also I will not be bringing the pistol into any state where it would be illegal. But...for arguments sake. Lets say my nice little 1911 became a Springfield XDM 9mm with a 19 round magazine. And I was flying from North Carolina to New Mexico...With a stop in California... Now in that situation, am I violating California law by having a layover there?! Take it up one notch and say my connecting flight in California gets canceled and I cant fly into New Mexico anymore and I have to leave the airport. But the TSA sees I have a firearm in my bag that isn't California legal. What happens then? I cant seem to find the info on these situations, but I can definatly see them as being possible. Who's got the info?
