I just got off the phone with my sister; among other things we discussed gun laws. She had told me about some gun law that she had repeatedly heard but did not know if it was valid or not. I logged on to packing.org and was quickly able to clear up the confusion.
Packing.org is a great resource for state-by-state concealed and carry gun laws. Each state gets its own page with the laws clearly outlined. Often the site links each law to that states penal code or appropriate state legislation website page.
They are quick to display the following disclaimer
The information on this site should be considered "as-is" and is not guaranteed to be accurate in any way. The maintainers of this site make an effort, when possible, to try to verify the information, but we are not lawyers and, therefore, we cannot and will not give legal advice. If you need accurate answers, hire an attorney who is licensed in the state in question.With that said, I always check out their site before I travel with my gun. There is also a bulletin board style section of this site where people can ask questions or post comments. It is interesting to see what people are saying. There is no doubt that this crowd is pro gun…
The information provided here is intended to give you a good starting point on the topic of Carrying Concealed Weapons (CCW) and where to look for authoritative information on CCW. When possible, we try to provide a resource of contact information (State Police, State Attorneys General, Licensing Authorities, etc) for you to verify the information on this site. Where this contact information is absent from this site, it is up to the reader to find it.
Therefore, it is completely up to the reader to verify ALL information on this site.
If you want to balance your world after visiting this site you can checkout stategunlaws.org brought to you by the "gun friendly" Brady folks. This site is basically the polar opposite of packing.org.
