The Buckeye Firearms Association wants to help ensure that concealed carry permit holders and sportsmen traveling out-of-state are kept from getting into trouble with the law.
The Buckeye Firearms Association is offering the "Travelers Guide to the Firearms Laws of the Fifty States," written by J. Scott Kappas,a Kentucky lawyer and firearms law expert.
At $13.95 (plus $4 for handling and shipping) the book's value would be immeasurable should a gun-owner encounter a legal challenge while transporting a handgun, shotgun, or rifle.
The book features such useful information as a state-by-state summary of gun laws, data on permit requirements, rules regarding self defense, concealed carry, open carry and vehicle carry as well as the legal definition of firearms law terms, and other matters, the Buckeye Firearms Association says.
If the book is brought through the Buckeye Firearms Association part of the proceeds will go toward the group's pro-gun educational sibling, the Buckeye Firearms Foundation.
To buy the book, send a check for $17.95 and payable to the Buckeye Firearms Foundation, Traveler's Firearms Guide, 15 West Winter Street, Delaware, Ohio 43015.
