    That's the situation in many states. Here in Virginia, if you go 30 miles outside Fairfax County, the majority of the population is strongly pro-gun. Yet the residents of Fairfax County, Richmond, and a few other places, vastly outnumber and outvote the pro-gun areas. It doesn't seem fair, or wise, to penalize (by boycotting) the entire state for the actions of a relatively small geographic area. In fact that would punish the pro-gun areas more than it would the antigun areas. The same is true of upstate New York versus New York City, etc.

    I live in both Rhode Island and Florida and 2 to 4 times a year travel thru states like Ct, NY and NJ. It is what it is as the saying goes. I don’t spend time in any of those states but would if something of interest for myself or the wife was there.
    I do let 2A influence my voting choices, but strangely enough that attitude can be applied thru most of the Conservative platform.
    My home state for 60 years has been RI so I know what it’s like to spend a life time voting for the losing party. :(

    That section is confusing when you take into account .7, If your licenses or have reciprocity with Oklahoma, you can have a loaded handgun in your car.

    Either that, or the officer who pulled me over didn’t care about my loaded handgun sitting in the passenger seat. I did show him my LTC when I handed him my DL. Luckily I didn’t get a ticket.

    I contacted my family lawyer, and he said as long your licensed you can carry a loaded gun in the car with you while your driving. I forgot to ask him for a citation. But the section I quoted earlier is from...


    un, concealed or unconcealed, and is carrying a handgun or has a handgun or rifle or shotgun in such vehicle shall not be deemed in violation of the provisions of this section provided the licensee is in or near the vehicle.[/QUOTE]

    From law.justia.com...

    https://law.justia.com/codes/oklahoma/2014/title-21/section-21-1289.7/

    So is your section you quoted saying it’s not allowed at all? But section 7 says it is if your not otherwise prohibited by law??

    I lived most of my life in California until I retired 18 years ago and escaped to Arizona. Friends and relatives keep asking when I’m going to come visit and (regardless of the unconstitutional gun restrictions) I keep telling them that I can’t because I don’t have a passport to get back into the United States.

    Well my answer to that, is it takes time to determine. Several reasons. 1. Your home state LTC as well as any other non-resident Licenses you may have. He. Researching what you can and can’t do in each state with or without a license.

    Example... Maine. Constitutional Carry state, but doesn’t recognize Texas LTC. You think on the surface, so what they are constitutional carry. Well True... but there are 4 maybe 5 state parks in Maine that you CAN NOT carry a handgun in them WITHOUT either a Maine LTC, or one Maine recognizes with reciprocity. Meaning.... I can not carry my handgun in those state parks. Until I either get a Maine license, or one that Maine recognizes. Therefore I got a Maine LTC. Very easy to get, and con be done through the mail. Otherwise their gun laws are good as well. I’m not going to buy a gun while I travel, but I may need a gunsmith, or ammo. Those are both easy to do.

    So for me Maine is good.

    Some other states rate ok, good enough to get by. Others are awesome. Utah I have never had issues. I go to Moab yearly for a 4x4 off road event. Never had an issue. Providing you either have a non-resident Utah &/or a LTC that has reciprocity with Utah.

    Watch out for states that are touted as constitutional carry. They have hidden loop holes. Oklahoma, and Maine are two examples.

    Here in Texas.... the majority of places are cool with you carrying provided you have a LTC. Never had any issues except for one place, and well COVID drove them out of business... so no loss!

    It just takes the time to do the research, and decide for yourself and family what you can and can’t live with and live without.

    I don’t travel with any Assault Weapons (sort of) so assault weapons bans don’t matter to me much for travel purposes.

    I do have threaded barrels on 3 of my handguns (92FS, p365, and M&P 45) so if going to those states I have to leave my threaded one at home and use my original barrel. CT is one state I can’t go too with Threaded barrels.

    I know and fully understand where your coming from. I have a good friend that lives outside of Buffalo, they live there because they have too. He is an engineer working on some big military contract that has high security. Because of that he gets to carry and have a license. Sadly she doesn’t. She complains about that one huge city that controls the entire state. It’s sad.

    Well I won’t call you sad, stupid or pathetic. I do understand where your. Ok’ing from like my friend and her husband. They don’t like it, but he loves his job, but it gives him a free pass to some degree. Her entire housing edition is extremely pro 2nd amendment.

    I did notice that your state does still have three bills that haven’t died (yet) that would allow non-residents to get a 90 day Temporary LTC that would be good state wide, including NYC, as well as offer short term 90 day reciprocity for all other states. Not for sure how they would monitor 90day reciprocity. But hey that’s more then any of the other states are doing to help tourist and business travelers!

    Who knows if it will pass though. Heck even if it didn’t allow NYC, it would still be an awesome thing to happen!

    If we want to be truthful, Since 1986, even though that gun act, and a couple of others have sucked. Overall we have made huge strides in positive gun rights since then. We have many states that are now shall issue, that weren’t then, we now have 17 constitutional carry states, albeit 3 of them have it with limitations. Castle doctrine, and stand your ground laws now exist in many states that they never existed before. Even some very liberal states now have passed at least some level of castle doctrine.

    So while we have a long ways to go, we have come along ways as well. We are only really down to 9-10 states that still need some major gun laws overhauled. The rest of the 40 states while some could use a little more work, are actually much much better then they used to be!

    Yet Virginia had one very awesome rally before COVID hit that had not only an impact in Virginia, but the rest of the nation as well. You are right though. The rural areas that are pro 2A suffer.

    However I will giver Virginia some credit that New York fails. You had at least 15-20 if not more Sheriffs departments, cities, counties, And even local DA’s that openly setup sanctuary areas, and said they would boldly refuse to arrest, enforce, and prosecute laws they felt were unconstitutional.

    Something that Rural New York hasn’t banded together to do just yet. Maybe if they did. They would get more support. I know many people would love to hear if they drove through a few NY sanctuary 2A counties and know they wouldn’t get arrested for carrying their guns per FOPA!

    After the Virginia Rally I was really hoping to hear more state counties, Sherrifs, cities proclaiming themselves as 2A sanctuary areas!

    ^ This. I'm not going to limit my travel, experience, and fun based solely on stupid gun laws. Wouldn't and haven't.

    That said, obviously, some places with obnoxious laws the proper measures must be taken if firearms are brought along. And some place, at least one of which the OP mentioned are, frankly, hellholes that I couldn't be paid to visit circa 2020, so it is a moot point.
