Re: Storage of firearms on board

As i understand it, at least as the USA goes, the territory of the shoreline state extends out 3 miles from the shore, but the federal limit is the limit of territorial waters, which is 12 miles.

anythign beyond 12 miles is international waters...
except inland.
the borders of lake Superior , huron, erie, st. clair and ontari as well as the st. lawrence weaway are differnt. neither the 12 nor 3 mile limits effectively reply, as the border must be continuous and contiguous.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
