They have advised that fines for traveling with or carrying any schedule 2 weapon are heavy. FYI - The re-enactors and performers who are licensed for weapons are subject to many policies and are heavily controlled. FYI - Sellers of weapons are also restricted by law and regulations as well as our very own policies.
