That is exactly what I told the congressional subcommite as they were discussing reciprocity legislation last year. Spoke to one of the chairman privately and said charge $100, reciprocate with a dozen states with similar laws, and you could issue 100x the permits. Explained that FL was doing a similar thing.If they allowed reciprocity with other states I'm sure they wouldn't be flooded with non-res permit applications...
"Why do we need to help non-residents" well knucklehead, as a resident, I'd rather pay y'all for a multi state permit instead of staying current with 4 other non res permits
The AG up here is vehemently anti gun, and he hasn't approved any reciprocity. He is claiming that no other state has equivalent laws (as required for ME to reciprocate). He is truly focused on EQUIVALENT, word for word, and of course no state has the same wording throughout their handgun laws.
This state is incredibly short sighted.
