    I was surfing around www.packing.org (yeah, I have no life) and saw NC has no peaceable journey law.

    What is a peaceable journey law? Is it federal, state, or a joint effort sorta like reciprocity?

    A general premise backed by local laws--

    It is a general premise backed by local and state laws in most jurisdictions (although obviously not all)

    That states --

    If one is in legal possession and transportation restrictions in their home location as well as their destination, then they may Peaceably transport their firearms through the intervening jurisdictions without fear of violating laws--

    NC apparently doesn't adhere to that premise

    I was thinking that was a FEDERAL law. Unless you stopped (other than for gas maybe) you were OK as long as the guns were in the trunk and unloaded. It didn't matter what the state said.

    I will try and look that up.

    That's the part that (effectively) makes this law -- more of a recommendation // general premise as each state can supplant it-- though federally the transport is legal--

    If your info is correct --(I have no idea) than NC had supplanted this code in this instance -- therby, effectively nullifying it--
