    Traveling to Puerto Rico

    I know laws just recently changed in Puerto Rico. Last year I traveled to Maine with my handgun in a locked pelican case and declared it before boarding the plane. I have a Florida resident Ccw. How hard is it going to be to go to PR with my handgun? Should I even worry about taking it? Going on vacation with my wife and kids so we wont be going to any bars or clubs. Just kids friendly places. Thanks in advance.

    I haven't got a clue because when I read the new PR firearms laws, I got really confused and decided I'd likely need the help of an attorney familiar with Puerto Rico's new firearms laws to know for sure. The updated laws only went into effect 01 January 2020 and for that reason alone, I myself wouldn't consider taking a firearm with me until more is known about how correctly the new laws are being enforced by law enforcement.

    I'm going in April. Lemme know!

    Actually, this will be a good one to ask US Law Shield. I'll call next week.

    Note, Florida DOES NOT HONOR Puerto Rico’s permits and that might complicate matters. Reciprocity generally means BOTH WAYS.

    Have you checked with the TSA? Also, have you checked with your airline to make sure they've adjusted their policies and procedures for the new laws in Puerto Rico? What did they say? You don't want to get all the way to the airport and have problems at the airline counter.
