Pulled over during a "STAY AY HOME" order?

If you are stopped by police or come across a roadblock checking essential worker guidelines, the pre-COVID rules pertaining to your right to carry a gun for protection and what you need to tell authorities about your firearm haven’t changed.  We have addressed several of the most important legal issues involved with a traffic stop in prior classes. 


Each day, the COVID-19 pandemic brings new challenges, and with various curfews and stay-at-home orders in place, it has become vitally important to stay on top of your legal rights.


Your Second Amendment rights haven’t changed but many stay-at-home orders specifically include language specifying that noncompliance will be enforced through criminal or civil penalties. The range of these penalties is broad, but can include fines up to $25,000, or even a year in prison.


So far, though, most law enforcement appears to be seeking compliance rather than making arrests. 


Stay at home if you can, practice your home defense plan, and STAY SAFE!
