RI does not require permits to possess. Unlike the Ma LTC, our "carry permit" is just that a permit to carry a handgun. There is no other permit. Long guns may be transported as need be. Handguns transported with out a carry permit may only be transported to and from your residence, an FFL, or a BONA FIDE target range ( sportsman's club ). Taking a rifle to your folks place is legal, you have the right by breathing. A handgun is grey area and not reccomended as your folks place is not a bona fide target range.
