    To Keep Reciprocity New Mexico RKBA Needs Your Help.

    Steve Aikens who is my Partner in Handgunlaw.us lobbies for the RKBA in New Mexico. If you have not heard NM just dropped Utah as a state they honor. From all that I am hearing they may drop a lot of other states. Steve and others who Lobby for RKBA's in NM need our help. Here is the info they need for every state that will honor other states permits/licenses.

    Do you have anything that shows which states require you to be a U.S. Citizen to get licensed? If they do not require it, what residency
    requirements do they have? Do they have a Citizenship requirement but offer waivers to certain non-immigrant legal aliens?

    Could you please post here the law for your state that shows residency requirements to obtain a permit/License and What I really need is the law quoted or the Alpha/Numeric code for the law in your state. Thank you so much for any help you can give me to help them.
    Stay Safe,

    Utah - In getting my Utah license, they asked for proof of citizenship. In my case the specifically asked for "certificate of born abroad to American parents." It was a standard form for incomplete applications with that line highlighted. Took about two weeks after faxing that back to get the license.

    I don't believe Alabama requires US Citizenship. Permits are issued by each sheriff and each one can place restrictions on that permit. Section 13A-11-75 of Alabama Code just says county resident.

    I haven't logged on in a while...... so forgive me for not being up to speed.........

    Why...... exactly........ is NM not honoring Utah... and why will they eliminate other states? I'm sure it's obvious to you younger gunnies...... but it's not obvious to me.

    I have a Colorado permit... and a non-resident Utah permit....... so I assume I'm still good to go in NM via my CO permit.......... right???... We plan to spend a couple of weeks in NM in June. Thanks.........

    Be Alert and Stay Safe

    Fast Draw. Here is what I know. Just home from a long weekend and Steve ask for info.

    DPS Press Release
    New Mexico No Longer Recognizes Utah Concealed Carry License
    April 23, 2010
    Contact: Peter Olson
    (505) 827-3361

    Santa Fe—Effective immediately New Mexico will no longer recognize concealed carry licenses issued by the State of Utah for the purposes of reciprocity in New Mexico, as the requirements for licensure in Utah do not meet the standards required in New Mexico statute. Rules governing the concealed carrying of weapons and issuance of licenses require that training and other provisions be as stringent or substantially similar to New Mexico requirements.

    Questions concerning licenses obtained from Utah by New Mexico residents have made it necessary to reevaluate which states will be recognized as valid in New Mexico.

    “We’ve had situations where certain concealed carry instructors in New Mexico solicit clients with the promise that if they train here and obtain a Utah license, which entails significantly less training than does a New Mexico license, it will qualify here,” said Department of Public Safety Secretary John Denko. “This is incorrect, and is nothing less than an effort to circumvent New Mexico concealed carry requirements which are designed to protect the public safety while honoring individual rights under the Second Amendment of the constitution.”

    The state will also review the status of eighteen other states currently recognized on an informal basis, with the intent of entering into written agreements with these states to ensure compliance with New Mexico law. These states are: Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wyoming.

    New Mexico currently has a written reciprocity agreement in place with Texas; the status of this agreement will remain unchanged.
