The controversial and politically polarizing subject of guns is looked at in a new report, writes Jon Leonard, RV Daily Report.
“Gunstocarry.com puts the number of concealed carry permits in the United States at 16.3 million, up 256 percent since 2007. As numbers rise, the number of people carrying a gun while traveling is also increasing.”
Traveling with a gun can vary in complexity from one state to another. In some states, traveling with a gun in your car requires you to have a special permit while in others your gun needs to be unloaded and locked in the trunk of your car or the back of your RV in a gun case.
While that may be fine if it’s a long gun, you want something that is accessible in the event of an emergency, Leonard writes. If you’re on the road for extended periods of time, you’ll want to safely store your handgun away, especially if you carry it around for protection. Other than storing your gun, having a safe for your gun can save your skin if you’re ever pulled over by police and they happen to ask if you have weapons in your vehicle.
At the end of the day, it all boils down to the responsibility of the firearm owner. A high-quality gun safe will ensure that your firearms are securely locked and some safes come with heavy-duty steel cables or bolt holes so you can secure your safe to your vehicle.
