With the application of Nevada’s new law, SB175, they have now began to honor the Mississippi enhanced permit. As you may recall earlier in June 2015 Nevada added reciprocity for 12 states and we predicted that a few more would slip in. Congratulations to all those who have the Mississippi permit!

Earlier this month the Nevada Governor signed into law SB175 which, in addition to other changes, removed the requirement for a state to have “similar training requirements” in order for Nevada to honor their permit. On June 18th Nevada published an updated list of the states whose permits it honors and ten new states have […]

Earlier in June of 2015 Washington stopped recognizing the concealed carry permits from Kansas claiming that Kansas failed to recognize the Washington permits in a meaningful way.

We are excited to announce the release of another tool to help and support gun owners in the US. The release of this tool is meant to address a few common problems: It can be frustrating to keep track of changes to states that honor or don’t honor your state’s permit. If you have multiple […]
On March 23rd, 2015 a new Ohio law goes into effect. Ohio House Bill 234, signed into law by Governor John Kasich Dec. 19, 2014, amends a number of the state’s previously standing gun statutes.

Concealed carry permits are far different. Until recently states did not have to offer concealed carry permits at all. Recently a federal court ruled that Illinois had to begin a concealed carry program. Now, while all states must somehow allow citizens to carry concealed weapons, each state varies significantly in their system to issue permits.

Among them, Wisconsin has done extensive research into the other 49 states in order to determine which states require applicants to pass a similar background check as that of Wisconsin. Based on that research Wisconsin has released an updated […]
