U.S. Law Shield Seminar
Traveling with Guns: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Tuesday 1/10/2023 from 6:30PM-9:00PM

U.S. LAW SHIELD & TRI-TOWN SPORTSMAN'S ASSOCIATION are partnering to bring you the most up to date laws to protect your 2nd Amendment rights.  This is a free event for Club members. 

 

Do you carry for protection? Do you plan on traveling beyond your state's border with your firearm? If the answer to either question is "YES," then attend this seminar. You will hear first-hand from an experienced U.S. LawShield® Independent Program Attorney about the laws of concealed and open carry, gun-free zones, and considerations for legally traveling while armed in other states. Arm yourself with knowledge because "I didn’t know…" is not a valid legal defense. 

 

1. Ignorance of the law is not a legal excuse
2. The legal system can be very hostile toward gun owners
3. Responsible gun owners get thrown into the legal system every single day
4. Laws change as you cross state lines.
