Hi Jacustomer,

This website lays out all of the gun laws and rules you'd have to abide by in each of the states you mention. See link. In most states she would at the very least be able to carry it in your car, unloaded. But beyond that there are restrictions you will find when you look over the statutes.

As far as Mexico is concerned, guns are illegal in Mexico. Don't even think of trying to bring one over the border unless your wife is interested in experiencing what it's like to be held in a Mexican prison.
