Yes, you can carry on a private plane. It would be a little sticky with state laws. In the air you would probably be fine following only federal law and giving the finger to state laws, but once you land, you'd probably best make sure you were in compliance with the state laws where you landed.
States sometimes try to impose their rules on aircraft and pilots and generally meet with very little success in doing so; however, the penalties for gun related infractions are generally much worse than for the other laws they try to impose, so it could be a big chance to buck them.
I am, of course, not a lawyer and your mileage may vary, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
