Controversy On The Water

Family BoatingThere is no denying it; people and boating go hand in hand. There are people who love to go fishing for their dinner and there are those who simply enjoy life on the bow of a boat or in the captain’s chair. It is something that families can do together during the warm weather months and there are people who do it to escape from their busy lives. Another bonus is that boats are available in all shapes and sizes. There are john boats and huge yachts. The issue comes when people who own the boat are hoping to defend the boat against the risk of pirates. It has led to a lot of controversy on the water since many people want to carry along a gun on their boat.

Local Laws

There are a lot of loopholes for you to jump through if you want to take a gun on your boat in a lot of different areas. Your issues may become bigger issues or smaller ones, depending on where you want to travel while you are on your boat. If you are simply venturing out into a river or the ocean, but staying close to shore, you will have to abide by the laws of your state as it pertains to guns. If they require you to have a permit for a concealed weapon, you will need that with you on the boat. Some states require you to have it locked up and unloaded, but there if you need to access it. It is important that you find out how your state handles gun laws and what permits they require you to have and you should know that it will be in effect until you reach approximately 12 miles off shore.

Venturing into Open Water

If you go beyond that or hope to travel into another country’s harbor, you will have to take into consideration the Maritime Laws, your gun carry laws will be based on the flag you are flying and that country’s laws. For example, the U.S. flag follows the laws of the United States. You will need paperwork to back you up on it. As you get closer to other countries or coasts, you will need to abide by their rules and not the flag you carry on your boat.

Find Out More About Your State’s Laws

Most all states allow you to carry a gun on board a boat, but it is important that you look into it to know for sure about your state’s regulations and rules. There are gun show loophole states that may make it even easier for you to purchase and carry a gun, not only on shore, but off. If you end up venturing further off shore, that is when you will find more complicated rules and regulations that you will have to follow or you may risk breaking the law.

Importance GPS Plays In The Future of Transportation

In a world where people are growing more concerned about the environment, cutting out pollution is a great idea. This first led to more people walking to work, or at the very least, riding bicycles rather than driving, especially in some of our largest cities. The thing is though, that some people do not want to arrive at work all sweaty and smelly because they rode on their bicycle, but walking is a big issue for some people who have trouble walking for long periods of time. Either it would cause them to feel pain in their legs or their lower back. For those people, there is a new form of transportation becoming more available. It is one where walking no longer has to cause them pain and they will not work up a sweat.

What They Are

Gryoscope-300x263The newest trend in avoiding traffic jams is the self balancing scooter. It allows people to avoid the pollution that comes with vehicles or public transportation. It ensures traffic is never an issue. It proves that back and leg issues do not have to prevent you from walking where you need to go. As an added bonus, you will arrive at work, or wherever else you need to go, faster than you would while walking as well.

These scooters are machines that you stand on. To operate you simply have to lean forward or backward. When turning, you apply more pressure to one foot than the other. It takes a little balance, but most people seem to agree that it only takes a few minutes time to learn how to ride and love their scooter.

Why People Love Them

AirwheelsTransportMost people who own a smart drifting scooter say that it can relieve the pains that they have when walking long distances. They agree that it does take a little getting used to, but once they climb on and get a feel for it, they love the ride. These people are all ages. They can be used by young children and our senior citizens alike. The working man who wants to avoid traffic or have time to unwind on his way home from work, uses this type of scooter. The mom who needs to run to a friend’s house a few blocks away can hop on and avoid the traffic, the pollution, and the headaches of driving there. As long as you can stand up straight and balance yourself a little, you can also join the many people who choose a better way of “walking”.

Will You Love Yours?

Many of the self-balancing transportation options can travel 6-10mph. This is a lot faster than walking where you need to go. They are easy to use because all you have to do is turn it on and take a step on-board. You can use it for small errands rather than load up in your car and deal with traffic. You are caring for the environment because they are battery powered rather than gas powered. Your kids can use it when they go to visit a friend. What will you use your newest transportation option for?
