"As an Attorney who has built a practice around Self-Defense law; I often have to remind clients that gun law, generally speaking is nothing like self-defense law. Unlike self-defense law, gun law varies enormously from state to state and while many gun owners will never be involved in a lethal self-defense incident; most are impacted daily by gun laws. The Legal Boundaries by State book is an impressive reference guide for relevant gun laws for today's traveling gun owner. It is well organized and easy to understand. Further, customers get ongoing no-cost access to the most updated version of the eBook which is a significant value. Don't leave home without it!"

Which Gun Laws Could You Be Unknowingly Breaking?

legal boundaries by state

Here are two examples of people who had to do battle in the courtroom to stay out of jail and prevent being convicted of felonies that would jeopardize their ability to ever OWN a gun again.

In July Brian Fletcher was arrested in New Jersey for doing something he was taught to do back in his home state of North Carolina. “As co-owner of a company that repairs cell towers, Brian Fletcher and his crews were responding to an emergency call that sent them to New Jersey where half a million people were without power due to a storm. But in an instant, Brian went from helping people to getting a crash course in “Jersey justice.”

“Elizabeth Elderli never leaves her Houston home unarmed. So, when the former U.S. Marine visited Manhattan's September 11 Memorial, two guns were in her backpack when she saw a “no firearms” sign at the security checkpoint. Elderli told a police officer about the loaded 9-mm. and .380-caliber semi-automatic guns — both covered by her Texas-issued concealed weapons permit, which she believed was valid in New York. But she quickly learned that the Empire State's gun control laws bear no resemblance to those in effect back home. Elderli was arrested in the Saturday incident, charged with felony possession of a weapon and left facing 3 ½ to 15 years in prison.”

And if you think its just famously anti-gun states like New Jersey & New York that are getting people in trouble you are mistaken. Texas, Florida, Alaska, and other states that we often perceive to be very gun-friendly have gun laws that create traps for otherwise law-abiding gun owners.

"As a professional firearm safety and defense instructor, I travel across state lines quite often, sometimes I fly, sometimes I drive. Traveling with firearms can be tricky as each state, and in some cases, each county can have a different set of rules governing firearms, knives, or any defensive tool. The “Legal Boundaries by State” book and digital file by is my first “goto" resource when seeing what can and can not be done in the states I am traveling through and traveling to. As laws and reciprocity agreements change with the wind we as responsible gun owners and family first responders must arm ourselves with the correct knowledge so that we don’t accidentally break the law. I know the folks at take great care to keep this resource as up to date as possible so good people don’t inadvertently break a law in a state that they visit or travel through. Breaking what may seem to be a silly law while traveling could mean the loss of your 2A Rights forever. You can’t protect your family from a jail cell. This is the only such resource that I offer on the Trigger Pressers Union website. I used it, so should you."

"The folks at have released a new state-by-state gun law book called “Legal Boundaries by State”. In my opinion, the e-book version is more useful. Load it into the reader app on your phone, and you will always have the handy updated reference available. There are websites that offer similar information, but I trust the folks at to get the information right and keep it up to date. In less than 100 pages, this book provides a lot of useful information, particularly for those that travel across state lines on a regular basis."

"I’m a computer guy and like to use my computer or smartphone to look up information but the one thing I really like in this book is the ability to find the information on a single state but also being able to see all the states in a table. That’s really handy and something no one does on their website. Plus if I don’t have wifi access I have a book to look through which you really get an appreciation of the various gun laws across the US when you can read and see them in a book."

Anybody that travels and carries needs this! Definitely comes in handy and laws are always changing so make sure you get updated on the new state laws. Better safe than sorry. Get the book and stay informed!

Steven - Verified Customer

This review is really about the service provided by Concealed carry. I initially was unable to download the book. However, Sam very expeditiously took action to make sure there was a link that I could use.

Though the book is handy, the Customer Service was exemplary. In Naval Parlance, Bravo Zulu. Other sites should get on board.

William White - Verified Customer

I bought the E version and love it. I do volunteer disaster relief work and may head to one state and depending on what the storm does the destination may be changed to a different state. I may also be sent to a different state when headed home. Having the E book on my phone I can easily check the laws before I enter the state.

Guy Pike - Verified Customer

This is a must-have for everyone. All the information you need right at your fingertips. Hopefully someday soon, the country will make it legal for all of the states to have a universal recepetory license, until then, you need to have this information to save your bacon. Thank you for taking the time in putting all of this valuable information together for us all.

Frances Polmateer - Verified Customer

This book has a lot of information in it. Good to take on a long trip. We bought 2 of them 1 for the house and 1 for the car. We found the book very informative.

Karla Husby - Verified Customer

What a wonderful, informative book. So glad we purchased it. This answers a lot of questions about different states and their carry guidelines. It, to us, is a must have for traveling and for home state updates also. The e-book is a great way to take along on our lap top when traveling, especially for any new updates to laws. Both are a must have. Thank you for making these available to us. We like to stay with-in the law, but still be protecting ourselves and our loved ones.

I am a Concealed Carry Handgun Permit Instructor. I will definitely be using this book in my classes as a reference source. Quick and easy to compare states, especially the summary pages in the back of the book.
