My Daughter lives in an apartment complex that has No trespassing. If invited over is it legal to carry?

Is it legal to carry outside? and/or in her apartment as long as it is okay with her?
If not, shouldn’t there be a sign for no firearms allowed?

Welcome to the community @Larry336

Always best to ask a real lawyer familiar with the laws in your area for legal advice.

My uneducated opinion is it would depend on several factors.

If you are invited over by your daughter to her apartment you would not be trespassing, baring any regulations against unauthorized visitors if it is some sort of controlled access living situation. But if the apartment has regulations against carrying or possessing a firearm in the apartments or common areas then you might be guilty of trespassing if you have your firearm with you when you enter. But that would depend on a combination of the building owner’s policies and the various State and local laws governing firearm possession and signage requirements.

Trespass laws have nothing to do with legal carry. As a guest of a resident, your daughter, you are not trespassing. As far as legality of concealed carry, you need to know the laws in that state. Start with handgunlaw.us, but if you are concerned, consult a local lawyer.

I’m not a lawyer, just quoting Shouse CA Legal Group

Penal Code § 602 PC defines criminal trespassing as entering (or remaining) on someone else’s property without permission or without a right to do so .

Invited = permission

Permission is valid until you’re asked to leave.

Welcome Larry. Grate to meet you . Love Bobby jean . Here’s a root beer :beer: :chile::us::beer::beer::beer::heart::white_heart::blue_heart::100::bangbang:

I am planning a visit to NM in. few months, The list of prohibited locations I see on handgun law.us looks tricky, in particular because “Tribal Land” (Indian reservations) are on the list. There seem to be quite a few such areas in the Albuquerque - Santa Fe corridor, although all dwarfed by Navajo territory in the northwest corner.
The limitation on restaurants is messy, also, since carry is not legal if the restaurant serves hard liquor. NM does not appear to have the provisions as in Texas, that you can carry in the restaurant dining area, but not in the bar area, of the establishment.

New Mexico Law…um… Here it is: The Right hand has No IDEA where the Left hand is!
I find zero problems carrying in this town (the ‘Q’) as for Bars/Restaurants–NO clue
I don’t frequent bars so it never came up. As for Tribal lands/Res’s. Taos, River River people open carry
in those towns. Down south a lot of people Open carry (a necessity these days)
Are you Open Carrying?
Because I frequent Village Inn’s and Local restaurants and people comment ‘Nice gun’ and Thumbs up’s!
I wouldn’t chance Casino’s (all tribal) but generally this is the wild west and people are cool. I believe a bar/rest. if you stuck to the Eating part you’d have no issues (but that isn’t written in stone)
Santa Fe is a No Gun Zone and the Cops are… unfriendly.
Good Luck Sir, Have a good time here (keep your hand on your wallet) Bienviendos! OLE!

We need to come together Brother
That may be a Fantasy of mine
But The Pudding and company has done
it’s best to divide us and fighting each other
saves them a lot of work.
We need to drop the Dem/Repub labels
Black/White, Gay/Straight.
Will that really ever happen NAh! But it’s a nice
dream I have. This administration has damaged us
I just hope it’s repairable.
Stay Frosty BobbyJean.

BobbyJean, having hot brass fly into your clothes is more a function of what you are wearing than where you hold the gun when firing. When you are shooting, gun control for accuracy needs to be your focus, particularly when you are actually in a self defense situation. This means working on a stance and grip you can repeat consistently without thinking about it.
Best approach I can offer is to wear crew neck t-shirts as undershirts at the range, and get used to letting the brass burn a bit when it does go down your neck. Focus on the target and shooting goal; that hot brass is just an annoyance. Don’t attempt to remove the brass until you have stopped shooting and holstered or tabled your gun.
Our ladies generally have additional geometric challenges with how their blouses gap open in normal wear, adding scoops that invite the flying brass in. Advice to them is wear high neck crew necks or turtleneck shirts at the range.
