Re: Carrying firearms in an RV

have you ever had someone put a knife to your throat because "you took their parking spot" on a city street, in front of your own apartment?

My main carry gun is a snubby model 66 with a custom trigger, bobbed hammer, and laser grips. I've had it for many years and it is a part of me.

Love them 66's!

Re: Carrying firearms in an RV

i've been doing a bit of reading on the subject. Looks like in the state of michigan, if your rv (skoolie) is moving, or ready to be moved it is considered a vehicle. If you are parked and hooked up to utilities so your rv is not able to be driven away without first unhooking the electric, water, etc then it can be considered a residence.

michigan does recognize and have reciprocity for cpl's (concealed pistol license) from all 50 states.

michigan does allow open carry of firearms however, A firearm inside or on a vehicle is considered concealed. Local ordinances regarding carrying,transporting of firearms are not allowed. This means you can open carry a pistol in any city/town/village in the state. Carrying a pistol in a holster is not considered brandishing. Then there is a BIG loophole for people that have a cpl they can open carry a pistol almost anyplace, including bars, sporting arena's, churches, etc, even though they cannot carry concealed in these places.

to carry a firearm in a vehicle, it has to be unloaded and in a case, or in a trunk or otherwise not accessible to the occupants of the vehicle. unless you have a cpl.

Click on the YouTube link again, look in the upper right hand corner, there's a link to buy the CD (if that's what you meant), and the group is called Hogjaw. Great song!

Smitty

Yes it is

Re: Carrying firearms in an RV

I don't add much to this forum because my little bus adventure won't even begin for a year or so, but I feel compelled to add something here. This isn't about self defense or the need for self defense. This is about individual rights. I am a gun owner and would like to take some of my guns with me for the same reason I want my television or my radio or my motorcycle. I like to shoot and want them there so that I can enjoy my sport while on the road when I have the chance. I should not be told that this sport is not okay while traveling while the others are okay. The argument that guns can kill people doesn't even apply because I have an assortment of hobby equipment that could be used to kill...a hammer that I use to work on things, I could run someone over with my car or said bus, even some creativity could be employed to use the television or radio to bludgeon someone to death. Furthermore, don't begrudge someone who feels the need for a firearm in order to feel safe. People have different experiences and if you feel that locking the door is sufficient then that is great and many would love to feel that way, but again, different life experiences.

Re: Carrying firearms in an RV

Smitty,

I completely agree with you and feel the same way. I was just trying to get across the notion that firearms are also a hobby because that never gets mentioned in debates like these. Aside from the higher level need to protect our freedom there is a real injustice in the simple idea that firearm infringement would have on my ability to enjoy something I love. How would most here feel if the government stepped in and said that having a mobile residence interfered with the government's ability to conduct a census and was therefore illegal?

Understood, and I agree 100% with all you said (I failed to mention that). However, the 2nd Amendment provides for protection 1st, food & sport are secondary to it's purpose.

Shhhhhh.....don't give Big Brother any ideas Seriously, it'll happen.....wait & see. We can't just have people traveling willey-nilley around the country now, can we.............

Thats not to mention the fact the Census is now using GPS to mark every doorstep in America.......yep. Wonder what that'll do when they come to breech a door, and it's no longer there???

Smitty

Yep, if it is enjoyable but not mainstream for city dwellers they will find a way to make it illegal at some point...even more so if they ever manage to totally get rid of the second amendment...they would be able to do whatever the hell they please.

This has already been done, along with the rest of the "God d..n'd" constitution (sixth paragraph => http://www.capitolhillblue.com/artman/p ... 7779.shtml). It is already in place, simply not completely being enforced...yet...http://epic.org/privacy/terrorism/usapatriot/ - and also - http://www.pbs.org/now/politics/patriot2-hi.pdf

The sheeple are sleepwalking to their slaughter.

Our founding fathers would be rolling in their graves.

Re: Carrying firearms in an RV

"DC (District of Criminals)" That is classic and so true. I can't believe I've never heard of it before. Yes if they ever go that route directly then things will get real nasty over here real fast, but on the bright side that might be the only way to correct the shoddy course we are on. Perhaps you and I should vote for BO in the next go around to perpetuate the situation since voting against the democrats appears to do very little...I find very little distinction between the two major parties anymore.

No worries those of us who care about our country will take up the slack.
