if you had to pick a state to live in based on gun laws, which would you pick?
#11
i didn't know about the discharging on private property thing. that's interesting. i'll have to look into that.

i like the gun laws in pa, with the exception of the FTF handgun sales regulation, the odd laws about transporting firearms without an ltcf, and the PA handgun sales database. i'm law abiding, but that doesn't mean i don't dislike the restrictions those laws place.

the culture in pa isn't bad either. i've only had one negative encounter while carrying openly in pittsburgh. overall, pa has been great. i just wonder how members think other states stack up. those lists that get passed around are bunk and i trust the guys here much more.

arizona's constitutional carry law covers carrying in a car. no permit is required.

Quote: If I'm traveling through Arizona with a firearm, can I have it in my vehicle?

Generally speaking, yes. However, it also depends on your age and mode of carry inside the
vehicle. For example, Arizona’s “Constitutional Carry” law (est. July 29, 2010) allows any citizen
who can legally own/purchase a firearm and is 21 years or older to carry it loaded and
concealed on their person without any type of permit or license anywhere inside the vehicle.

the discharge of firearms law appears to be similar to most places i've seen. it looks like it's got a blanket ban in municipalities unless you're 1 mile from any occupied structure. that kinda sucks. in ohio, i think it was 200 feet or yards. i'm not sure what it is here in pa. does anyone know? can i plink in my back yard in the city if i have an adequate backstop?

ETA: looks like it changes from local agency to local agency on the plinking in the backyard thing here in pa.

I'm with you if it was a have to relocation but I'm not going anywhere other than to visit.

I have a lake to the north of me to play in and the Allegheny National Forest to the south. There's also 3 cities within 2 hours and Niagara Falls. That suits me just fine.

Interesting, I got my info from wikipedia, which admittedly is very poorly written. Perhaps I misunderstood what I read:

Quote:In a vehicle, any adult person who is not a prohibited possessor may openly carry a loaded firearm in a vehicle whether in a holster, case, compartment, or in plain view. Persons under 21 may openly carry a loaded or unloaded firearm in a vehicle only if it is in plain view, i.e. discernible from the ordinary observation of a person located outside and within the immediate vicinity of the vehicle.

As for discharging firearms in PA, it's not covered under state law, and it's not protected by preemption, so it's different everywhere.

yeah, that sounds difficult to interperet. on a quick reading, i got confused by the over 21 CAN open carry, under 21 cannot carry unless in plain view structure and had to reread it a couple of times.

I do not decide where I live based on gun laws, but I do decide where I will not live based on them.

Other than PA, which I'm not "married" to, these are the states that I would happily migrate to, and in the past have actively been looking at relocating to:

Alaska
Idaho
Montana
Tennessee
Wyoming
Vermont
West Virginia

Not in order mind you, but Alaska is truly at the top of the list.
