    If it is not in the US Constitution then the Federal Government should not be doing it.

    Not PA either. We're surrounded by neighbors that will not let us carry. It's a little frustrating.

    I have a NV nonresident permit but I would be tickled if they recognized one of my other permits. NV is a pain in the ass to get a permit in and the non resident is only valid for 3 years. But I spend enough time there for work that it seemed prudent to have the NR permit.

    SENATE BILL NO. 237–SENATORS LEE, HARDY AND BEERS
    MARCH 7, 2007
    ____________
    JOINT SPONSOR: ASSEMBLYMAN SETTELMEYER
    ____________
    Referred to Committee on Judiciary
    SUMMARY—Revises certain provisions governing permits to
    carry concealed firearms. (BDR 15-47)
    FISCAL NOTE: Effect on Local Government: No.
    Effect on the State: No.
    ~
    EXPLANATION – Matter in bolded italics is new; matter between brackets [omitted material] is material to be omitted.
    AN ACT relating to concealed firearms; authorizing a person who
    holds a permit to carry a concealed firearm issued by
    another state to carry a concealed firearm in this State
    under certain circumstances; revising various other
    provisions governing permits to carry concealed firearms;
    and providing other matters properly relating thereto.
    Legislative Counsel’s Digest:
    1 Existing law allows a person who is not a resident of the State of Nevada to
    2 apply to the sheriff of any county in this State for a permit to carry a concealed
    3 firearm in this State. (NRS 202.3657) Section 2 of this bill allows a person who is
    4 not a resident of this State to carry a concealed firearm in this State if the person
    5 has a permit to carry a concealed firearm issued by another state and the
    6 Department of Public Safety has determined that the requirements for the issuance
    7 of a permit in that state are substantially similar to or more stringent than the
    8 requirements of this State.
    9 Section 3 of this bill requires the Department to determine, on or before July 1
    10 of each year, whether the requirements for the issuance of a permit to carry a
    11 concealed firearm in each state are substantially similar to or more stringent than
    12 the requirements of this State.
    13 Under existing law, a person may obtain a permit to carry in a concealed
    14 manner one or more firearms of a specific make, model and caliber if the person
    15 meets certain requirements. (NRS 202.3657, 202.366) Section 4 of this bill creates
    16 three categories of firearms, which consist of a category of revolvers, a category of
    17 semiautomatic firearms and a category of both revolvers and semiautomatic
    18 firearms. Under section 5 of this bill, a person may obtain a permit to carry in a
    – 2 –
    - *SB237*
    19 concealed manner any firearm in one of the three categories if the person meets
    20 certain requirements.
    21 Existing law requires an applicant for a permit to carry a concealed firearm to
    22 include with the application for the permit a photograph of the applicant. (NRS
    23 202.3657) The permit issued to the applicant must contain this photograph. (NRS
    24 202.366) Section 5 of this bill removes the requirement that an application for a
    25 permit include a photograph of the applicant. Section 6 of this bill removes the
    26 requirement that the permit contain the photograph of the applicant.
    27 Existing law provides for the expiration of a permit to carry a concealed
    28 firearm. If the holder of the permit is a resident of this State, the permit expires on
    29 the fifth anniversary of the birthday of the holder which is nearest to the date of
    30 issuance or renewal. If the holder is a resident of another state, the permit expires
    31 on the third anniversary of the birthday of the holder which is nearest to the date of
    32 issuance or renewal. (NRS 202.366) Section 6 of this bill provides that all permits
    33 to carry a concealed firearm expire 5 years after the date of issuance.

    SENATE AND ASSEMBLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

    Their definition of firearms and the different categories are pretty good. You often see some pretty silly stuff in firearms bills because they are written by people who don't know much about guns. This one, as you would expect, was written by someone who does know something.

    And to think, my friends and I are considering a LV trip this summer. Pity this bill would probably not become law soon enough for that (even if they recognize KY).

    I read about the bill in the Review Journal a few days ago. I'm thrilled that NV would do this, and I was amazed that it was introduced by a Democrat. I hope that it passes. I've never understood the reasoning behind not letting those with valid permits in other states carry here. Good Luck at that. While my NV permit is recognized by a few western states, I went ahead and got my Fla and Utah permits when I applied for NV since the combination gives me great coverage when travelling.
