    Kansas ... Now recognizes CC licenses of all States (July 1, 2013)

    Effective July 1, 2013 : Law was changed and Kansas now recognizes CC licenses of all States.
    >
    LINK :
    Out-of-State License Recognition - Concealed Carry - Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt

    Kansas State Attorney General's Office
    Recognized Non-Kansas Concealed Carry Handgun Licenses
    >
    On and after July 1, 2013:
    >
    Beginning July 1, 2013, the State of Kansas will recognize all “valid” concealed carry licenses (or permits, cards, etc.) that are issued by another State or the District of Columbia. HOWEVER, there are two important caveats to that general rule: (1) this recognition only extends to individuals who are not residents of Kansas. If you are passing through Kansas to another state, or staying in Kansas temporarily for business or pleasure – a valid CCH license from another jurisdiction will be honored beginning July 1, 2013; and (2) this recognition will only allow the license holder to carry a concealed handgun. Any other defensive weapons carried by the non-Kansas license holder must, as with all Kansas residents, be carried in accordance with Kansas law while they are within Kansas’ borders.
    >
    If you are a new resident to Kansas – on or after July 1, 2010 – and possess a valid CCH license from another jurisdiction, you may apply for the Kansas CCH and obtain a 180-day receipt from the Attorney General’s office which will allow you to continue carrying with your non-Kansas CCH to continue carrying concealed while your Kansas CCH application is pending. Persons moving to Kansas may be allowed to bypass the state’s required handgun safety and training class if the training they received in another jurisdiction was equal to or greater than the Kansas training requirements. At a minimum, this training must include handgun safety, actual firing of handguns, and a review of laws governing the carrying of concealed handguns and the use of deadly force. A person applying for the Kansas license must provide a copy of their training certificate and proof that the training included the minimum requirements for recognition. The 180 day receipt will indicate whether or not the person is required to complete the Kansas training class

    I'm hoping Virginia will soon recognize Kansas as I need to go there this fall. I think I am going to get an Arizona carry permit because Virginia does recognize that state..

    KSgunner, I could be wrong but I did not read in the above that your state had to have reciprocity with Kansas for them to recognize your home state CC license.

    Huh? My home state is Kansas, and I am going to Virginia. Kansas recognizes Virginia but Virginia does not recognize Kansas.

    Hopefully that will change now. Until KS changed their law a VA permit was not honored there. VA is very gun friendly and the AG is very open minded to guns.

    Smart, IMO. After all, the only real difference is that people have been background checked elsewhere. So long as they follow the statutes in the state they travel through ...

    Ditto: I wish the other states would get a clue, in this regard. It's not as though they're saving anyone grief by having such barriers up. At best, they're simply helping ensure the anti-gunners get what they want, which is fewer people carrying in defense of themselves and innocent lives.

    If more states would adopt this attitude, National Reciprocity would not be a moot question. This is one way to avoid Federal involvement.

    That is good news. Mississippi is another state that recognizes all CCPs.

    Florida is a "I'll honor yours if you honor mine" state. Sort of childish if you ask me. It should be honored the same as a DL; you got one, it's good.

    I wish we had more acceptance of other states' permits here in Wisconsin. The big sticking point here in Wisconsin when CC laws were written is that a state must conduct a background check using NICS. If your state doesn't use NICS, Wisconsin won't honor your permit. I think that is something our weak-kneed AG pushed for.
