Carl,
I believe that is good advice, especially, just avoid unsafe places. There is a small part of most Americans who rightly believe the ought to be able to go anywhere, any time. I'm pretty sure that ended over a hundred years ago. My advice, get over it. For me, it's stock the cooler with good grocery store beer in the mid afternoon, get her on ice, and enjoy the sunset and stars from your deck or campground.
Dave

The original question - for those who "carry" going north - was specifically about storing a firearm in the U.S. before crossing into Canada. Today's revival started on exactly that same subject.

Rules for carrying concealed firearms within the United States seem irrelevant to me... but also seem almost guaranteed to pointlessly re-start a controversial topic.

Totally agree Brian. The topic at hand is where to store it, NOT whether you should carry it in the first place.

I might interject that this forum is for the free exchange of information AND ideas. This is hardly the first time opinions have been expressed that did not stay on topic (or in other words, address only the question(s) posed by an OP. I would guess that 90% or more threads here "stray." However, if failing to stay exactly on topic is annoying some members, perhaps this thread should be closed by a/the moderator(s).

I don't know where you get this from, as I don't..... oh look, a squirrel.

This is not a typical topic. The concern is not simply staying on topic, and was addressed by moderators starting from post #6 (this is post #49).

From the forum rules:

Question for those who "carry" going north

It's not that a discussion wouldn't be worthwhile, nor is it that one is not entitled to their opinion. It's that the topic is not appropriate for an RV forum, that's all. Of course threads drift off topic, and I'm as guilty as the next guy in pushing them off the tracks. But, the whole discussion of weapons in an international forum dedicated to Escape trailers has too many potential land mines. It's inherently political, and it polarizes people like few other topics do. Maybe it's better to stay on course.
