Firearms on boats... what are the rules?

Rate this topic

5 posts in this topic

What are the rules regarding carrying a gun on a boat?  Maritime law if you are outside of 13 miles?  State whose waters you are in?  State you are from?   How does this work?  FWIW I am in NJ.  I assume that there are some heavy restrictions.

 

I know, vague, but I was just wondering.

SCOTUS has ruled that a boat is a conveyance, like your car.

 

Even if you live in a houseboat, it does not count as your residence.

 

Take care to stay on top of state and federal laws as they apply to boats and vehicles - especially if you're transiting through neighboring state waters.

 

USCG will enforce ALL gun laws that apply to the waters you are in.
