Self Defense Weapon Laws For Travelers

There are an increasing amount of law abiding citizens venturing into a travel lifestyle and inquiring about self defense and protection options. When it comes to legally owning a tool or weapon in one state, you may not think about if it’s illegal in another before passing through or even stopping for a while there.

It’s important that your rights to bear arms and protect yourself are not infringed upon, however, it’s just as important for you to understand the laws that govern that right in each state you enter to avoid any unforeseen situations that could strip you of those rights.

Where one state may deem a defense weapon/tool illegal, another may embrace it within their laws. This allows you the option to switch defensive weapons/tools prior to entering a state and securing/storing all unused weapons/tools in a fashion that meets the states guidelines.

The list below is current up to the last time it was updated on Oct. 15th, 2018. If you notice a state law change before we do, please let us know so we can update this resource to keep it accurate faster. Be sure to check with a states official law documents prior to carrying/transporting any weapon/tool into their state. This is just a general guide to give you an idea of the laws and we are not affiliated with any of the state or government agencies that make those laws.
