    • On April 12, 2009, by TheBatman - I got stopped traveling through Alabama from Florida. When I travel, I ALWAYS carry. They grilled me and grilled me like I was some sort of criminal. I can legally carry in my vehicle, in it's holster, that is 3+ movements away. We should not have to go through that just because we want to protect ourselves.

    • On March 25, 2009, by xylyx3d - yah it would keep we the people from becoming jail birds when traveling with a legally owned concealed weapon. the bad guys don't care if they are supposed to have guns or not, so we all need to be able to carry wherever life may take us, no matter what state we currently claim residency in.

    • On April 03, 2009, by rsh1962 - All laws only affect law-abiding citizens. Bad guys dont follow the laws, so any gun control law only affects the honest people trying to defend thier families. If one state says you may carry a firearm, why must you disarm when crossing state lines?
