New Jerkski requires locked storage, and has been known to arrest police officers traveling through the state with pistols in the trunk of the car. Don't admit you have it and don't consent to a search.When traveling by road? I check the state laws of every state I will be passing through and dis-arm myself as "appropriate to the local laws" (I am not sure it is ever "appropriate" to disarm yourself) at the state line. Then re-arm at the next friendly state. Other then that the Safe Traveler provision is all I need. I believe it is also referred to as the "Safe passage" provision.
From the firearm owners protection act (taken from wikipedia, possibly the worst souce to rely on...but here it is anyway):
"One of the law's provisions was that persons traveling from one state to another for a shooting sports event or any other lawful activity cannot be arrested for a firearms offense in a state that has strict gun control laws if the traveler is just passing through (short stops for food and gas) and the firearms and ammunition are securely locked, unloaded, and not immediately accessible.
An example of this would be that someone driving from Virginia to a competition in Vermont with a locked hard case containing an unloaded handgun and a box of ammunition in the trunk could not be prosecuted in New Jersey or New York City for illegal possession of a handgun provided that they did not stop in New Jersey or New York for an extended period of time.
With these considerations in mind, it is advisable for travelers with firearms to maintain a low profile while passing through any such states that have severe restrictions on gun ownership.
This law is based on the doctrine of legal preemption in that people traveling between states fall under the jurisdiction of federal law which overrides state law."
