CHL holder traveling to Baton Rouge via Greyhound bus

Postby Rayden » Sat Jan 08, 2011 8:48 pm

So I checked Greyhound's site and couldn't find any restrictions against actual firearm carried by CHL holder on board. They just had the genearal zero tolerance of things including weapons.

I did the search function and didn't really find any concrete answer, and most of the discussions were back in 2006 and 2007. So if I am traveling to Baton Rouge LA via Greyhound, can I carry my conceal handgun on board? TIA.

If it's concealed, who will know?

Sorry but that's not really a legitimate answer. I believe the OP is wanting to know if he can *LEGALLY* carry concealed on public transportation from Texas to LA.

In Texas, yes. You will need to check LA's gun laws to see if there is any restriction regarding public transportation:

I doubt LA has something analogous to the Texas 30.06 prescribed signage. In many states, simply posting anything to the effect of "no guns" or "no weapons" is sufficient. Check that part of LA law as well.

Greyhound doesn't count as "public transportation" does it? I would think it depend on the company's policy.

I was wondering the same thing since it's not owned by the government... yet.

Greyhound is no more public transportation that the airlines. It is a publicly traded company owned by the shareholders. At least that's the way it's supposed to work.

with the exception of the airlines I tend to assume if it doesn't specificly mention CHL it doesn't apply to CHL and carry accordingly but I have never ridden greyhound as an airline employee it is much cheaper and quicker to fly.
It is easier to get an airport security clearance than a CHL

Just wait 'till the TSA is using the nudoscopes before you board a bus, cross state lines, or ride on a metrorail..... :bigmouth

I will check with my son who i dropped off at the greyhound station two weeks ago. It looked like they x-rayed your luggage but i am not sure if they have metal detectors to walk through.
I thought i something in the news last week about having to call greyhound 24 hrs in advance to let them know you were transporting a firearm. Then you had to lock it up with them.

I travelled from East Texas to Pensacola on the ol greydog a year and a half ago. I had to transfer in Houston and upon re-boarding passengers were wanded. I didn't have a permit at the time and was not carrying. I was however carrying a new Case pocket knife that I bought as a retirement present for myself. I had bought some food and slipped the knife in the food bag and set the bag down with my other pocket contents before being wanded. I had no idea if it would have been a problem or not and didn't want to take any chances. As far as the policy and laws concerning this I have no clue.
