U.S. Law Shield and Texas Law Shield President Kirk Evans is worried that new laws recently passed in gun-hostile states could land traveling gun owners in hot water this summer.
He said, “Our concern is, these measures will invariably ensnare people who don’t live in the state, but who make life-ruining mistakes of passing through with perfectly legal firearms in their home states.” Example: The New Jersey Senate recently passed a bill banning detachable magazines that hold more than 10 rounds and bans .22 rifles with fixed magazines larger than 10 rounds. The bill has several more hurdles to overcome before it becomes law, including a signature by Gov. Chris Christie, but it’s just the latest example of how such onerous gun laws can affect innocent travelers, says Evans.
He said, “That’s what makes our new free publication, ‘Behind Enemy Lines, A Guide to Traveling through Firearms-Hostile States’” so important.
He said, “The free report covers the nuances of the federal Firearm Owners Protection Act — but also makes gun owners aware of legal traps they can run into even if they follow federal law.” Click here to download the free report.
