    Mississippi Adds Missouri To Reciprocity List

    Mississippi Dept of Public Safety has added Missouri to the list of states it has signed a reciprocity agreement with. This brings to 24 the number of states Mississippi has signed agreements with. Missouri honors all other states permits.

    Handgunlaw.us will be updated in the next 24 hours to reflect this change in reciprocity.

    It seems we are going in the right direction.

    Part of the responsibility of CCW is knowing your state's law. The delay had nothing to do with any inaction on the part of the Mississippi legislature. Mississippi's legislature made it relatively easy for reciprocity.

    Here's the section regarding reciprocity:

    (19) Any person holding a valid unrevoked and unexpired license to carry concealed pistols or revolvers issued in another state * * * shall have such license recognized by this state to carry concealed pistols or revolvers, provided that the issuing state authorizes license holders from this state to carry concealed pistols or revolvers in such issuing state and the appropriate authority has communicated that fact to the Department of Public Safety.

    Some states don't offer reciprocity to Mississippi (which means we won't honor their permits) because Mississippi does not have a pre-license education requirement.

    If your state honor's Mississippi's firearm permit, Mississippi honors your state as long as your state has communicated it to the appropriate authorities (MS Department of Public Safety and Attorney General's office).

    Then why the delay?? Was MO refusing to honor ours?? It's like a "we will if you will first" kind of thing?? Enlighten me...

    Ask Missouri.

    This is not an issue that the legislature "votes on".

    You may want to go to the link (posted above): handgunlaw.us

    It appears that county sheriffs are responsibile for issuing permits, rather than a state agency, as in Mississippi. Probably an agreement that had to be hammered out between the AGs' of both states.

    He's got his fingers in everything else, it seems...Him as Speaker of the House is one reason I have not contacted my local legislator about trying to change some of the 'boiler plate' language in the list of prohibited places we have (i.e.-churches, parks, my kids' schools). I digress

    Thanks Missouri, makes my traveling easier

    What are you talking about? Billy McCoy had nothing to do with this other than sitting in the legislature when the original law was passed years ago. He is not the attorney general. Jim Hood has been attorney general for the past 5 years. Prior to that it was Mike Moore for 12 years.

    IIRC, Billy McCoy wasn't even speaker when the bill passed. The previous speaker was Tim Ford.

    Again, the legislature doesn't make the determination. It's made by the DPS and the attorney general.

    If you do the research, you'll find the concealed carry law hasn't been touched since it originally passed.

    Whose more frightened of him? You or your representative?

    You want changes, lean on your elected officials. They'll respond.
