    Info on New Mexico, Idaho, Illinois, Mississippi and Arkansas.

    New Mexico has signed an agreement with Idaho. NM will honor the “Enhanced Permit” issued by ID. ID just started issuing an Enhanced Permit for the specific reason that more states would honor their enhanced permit. It takes additional training to obtain the Idaho Enhanced Permit but the cost is the same. Handgunlaw.us would appreciate an image of the new Enhanced Permit to add to the ID Page.

    Illinois is now a “Shall Issue” state. There are numerous places off limits. Other than being Shall Issue they do allow you to store your firearm in your vehicle in most places that are off limits. They also have a safe journey section. If you have a permit/license to carry from your state of residence you can keep your concealed firearm on your hip while travelling through Illinois. You must unload it before exiting the vehicle.

    Mississippi is a mess with a Hines Co. Judge putting a stay on their new Open Carry law. The AG has weighted in saying he didn’t believe it affected the whole state but would not put it in writing. Some Counties are allowing Open Carry even with the stay. The AG stated he would ask the Mississippi Supreme Court to settle the question. Again it is a mess.

    Arkansas amended their firearm laws that take effect August 16. They gave a definition to the term, “Journey.” It states a Journey is outside the county you reside in. Some are stating it gives Arkansas Constitutional Carry and other stating Open Carry is legal. The AG has issued an opinion stating that Open Carry is still illegal. Another mess that will take the courts months to figure out. Handgunlaw.us recommends you don’t open carry or conceal carry without a valid permit/license to carry until this mess is straightened out. Starting Aug. 16 AR will honor all other states permit/licenses.

    What to thank all who assisted me with Arkansas, Mississippi and especially Illinois with their new law. Your assistance is very much appreciated. Handgunlaw.us has been updated to show the changes in states laws that are in effect as of today. Others will be updated when their laws take effect.

    After my earlier post I received information that Pennsylvania now honors Kansas. PA also made an announcement that they will only honor the North Dakota Class 1 Permit. ND issues two classes. Class 1 requires training and is honored by a lot more states. The Class 2 does not require as much training. They did this so more states would honor their permit/license. ND did this a couple years ago.

    I caught some flack for my post, and rightly so, as I didn’t explain Car Carry for non residents of IL with a permit/License from their state of residence. I apologize for not explaining it completely. I was more interested in letting people know they could not exit the vehicle with a loaded firearm. Here is the complete law.
    Section 40
    (e) Nothing in this Act shall prohibit a non-resident from transporting a concealed firearm within his or her vehicle in Illinois, if the concealed firearm remains within his or her vehicle and the non-resident:
    (1) is not prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm under federal law;
    (2) is eligible to carry a firearm in public under the laws of his or her state or territory of residence; and
    (3) is not in possession of a license under this Act. If the non-resident leaves his or her vehicle
    Unattended, he or she shall store the firearm within a locked vehicle or locked container within the vehicle in accordance with subsection (b) of Section 65 of this Act.

    Subsection (b) of Section 65 States:
    (b) Notwithstanding subsections (a), (a-5), and (a-10) of this Section except under paragraph (22) or (23) of subsection (a), any licensee prohibited from carrying a concealed firearm into the parking area of a prohibited location specified in subsection (a), (a-5), or (a-10) of this Section shall be permitted to carry a concealed firearm on or about his or her person within a vehicle into the parking area and may store a firearm or ammunition concealed in a case within a locked vehicle or locked container out of plain view within the vehicle in the parking area. A licensee may carry a concealed firearm in the immediate area surrounding his or her vehicle within a prohibited parking lot area only for the limited purpose of storing or retrieving a firearm within the vehicle'strunk, provided the licensee ensures the concealed firearm is unloaded prior to exiting the vehicle. For purposes of this subsection, "case" includes a glove compartment or console that completely encloses the concealed firearm or ammunition, the trunk of the vehicle, or a firearm carrying box, shipping box, or other container.
    Section 5. Definitions. As used in this Act:

    "Concealed firearm" means a loaded or unloaded handgun carried on or about a person completely or mostly concealed from view of the public or on or about a person within a vehicle.

    Thanks Gary ... for all the things you do . Just a note, but we just went thru a lot of the changes on Kansas as well, which Gary just updated. This must absorb a lot of time on his part, and is a major benefit to all of us ..... to know and find the laws that apply when we are in other states. Thanks.

    Gary, thanks for your information. Since I live on the MS border do you know what counties allow OC? Also, the counties that do so can/does it negate current state law? Im not one to OC frequently but it would be nice to know how much or hopefully how little I can get in trouble should my shirt ride up or if I chose to OC where allowed.

    I noticed on the handgun.us site that Virginia is showing that Kansas does not recognize Virginia. I though Kansas recently recognizes all states.

    KSgunner, That has been fixed. Thank you for pointing that out. For those who have not read about the Kansas Changes in their gun laws it was the first time I read a bill and went "WOW" in a good way. What a leap forward!!!!!!
