    This is from the Maryland State Police's own web site. I frequently travel through MD, and always have a copy of this with me. It simply reinforces that they will honor the FOPA.

    What is the purpose of your trip?

    Since your purpose does not allow you to transport within your origin/destination (NJ) you most likely would NOT be FOPA eligible on the initial/final legs of your outgoing/incoming trips.

    for what its worth, on this page http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs...7&ChapterID=39, it states
    "Nothing in this Act shall prohibit a non-resident from transporting a concealed firearm within his or her vehicle in Illinois, if the concealed firearm remains within his or her vehicle and the non-resident:
    (1) is not prohibited from owning or possessing a

    firearm under federal law;
    (2) is eligible to carry a firearm in public under

    the laws of his or her state or territory of residence, as evidenced by the possession of a concealed carry license or permit issued by his or her state of residence, if applicable; and
    (3) is not in possession of a license under this Act.
    If the non-resident leaves his or her vehicle unattended, he or she shall store the firearm within a locked vehicle or locked container within the vehicle in accordance with subsection (b) of Section 65 of this Act.
    (Source: P.A. 98-63, eff. 7-9-13; 98-600, eff. 12-6-13; 99-78, eff. 7-20-15.)." A year ago or so, it was confirmed to me that if you possess a valid concealed weapons permit/license to carry/gun permit from your state of residence you are well within your rights to keep your concealed handgun inside your vehicle.

    When needing to stay for the night I would advise to plan the overnight just across the border from any communist states. Cross the border with snacks, full tank of gas, cruise at no more than 5 over and only stop if you absolutely HAVE TO

    I will say that FOPA comes up now and again in New York. If they find a handgun in your vehicle, or other prohibited firearm, you WILL go to jail.
    If you followed FOPA you will most likely get out again and charges dropped.. when you ask for your firearm back.. Fagetaboutdit!
    If you have prohibited accessories (magazines over 10 rounds), taser or self defense spray.. you will go to jail for around 1 year.
    They don't joke. In the Binghamton Area where Route 17, I-88, and I-81 meet they like to do annual NY DOT commercial vehicle inspections. The list of weapons arrests always dwarfs the list of vehicle violations
