State-by-state laws for conceal carry can be complex enough, but when you begin crossing state lines, the issue becomes almost impossible to unravel.
While legislation is being moved forward that could make state conceal-carry permits more like driver’s licenses (if you are legal in one state, you are legal in all), the current laws are dictated by each state. Therefore, just because you are allowed to carry in your home state does not mean you are allowed to carry in another.
This makes a big difference, because an activity (in this case, carrying a firearm) that is perfectly legal on one side of a state border could be a felony on the other. But like all issues in gun ownership, the ultimate responsibility is yours, so you have to stay informed.
