Sorry man. What firearm laws are you dealing with?! I could practically memorize ALL of them . If I tried to do that in MA, my brain would melt.

Lucky for me I have no real issues. But I guess if I ever do I won't be using the "so and so on the internet said it was cool" defense. Plus living in VT has certain advantages in regards to firearms

Here's a little tip ... stay out fo the shithole places

I'm not agreeing with it nor do I condone it but DC is not a gun friendly place. Taking the chance of carrying in a place like DC is just that, a chance. Until the Supreme Court rules with an iron fist that 2A is absolute places like DC will be a haven for stupidity.

Enjoy the Smithsonian

Ladies and gents- when I mentioned the Peaceable Journey Law, I was referring to a specific Federal law. This takes precedence OVER any state or local law. NYC has been refusing to obey it (thank you Mayor Bloomingidiotberg). There is a difference between CARRYING a firearm and TRANSPORTING a firearm. Here is the law, read it for yourself.

TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 44 > § 926A
§ 926A. Interstate transportation of firearms
Notwithstanding any other provision of any law or any rule or regulation of a State or any political subdivision thereof, any person who is not otherwise prohibited by this chapter from transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful purpose from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to any other place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during such transportation the firearm is unloaded, and neither the firearm nor any ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the passenger compartment of such transporting vehicle: Provided, That in the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver’s compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console.

In Illinois, I must transport my gun in the trunk of my car. If a vehicle does not have a "separate compartment" as in a mini van or SUV, the gun must be in a locked case in the back of the vehicle.

I would not recommend taking any weapon in to DC.
They have no sense of humor when it comes to pistols or other firearms especially.
If you do, you are definitely rolling the dice! If something unexpected should happen and you are found with it. You are looking at a major fines, jail time and loosing your pistol. You know that Murphy runs around following us around on occasion! (Murphy's Law!) If you stay out of DC and left it in your hotel room safe it might be a better choice. That is if you still plan on taking it while you travel to and from for personal protection. Only my thoughts!
