If New York were part of the United States it might recognize licenses/permits issued by other states.
When I started the thread I had been perusing handgunlaw.us and had noticed many states that were recognized by several states, but there is a statement that they do not recognize any states permits. To me this is a slap in the face and shows an arrogance and "audasity" that is un-acceptable.
I know thet there are states that are conciously trying to establish reciprocity with as many states as they can. However, I feel that those who do not recognize other states and at the same time enjoy the others reciprocity shows a sad state of affairs and attention should be brought to the subject.
I'm clinging to my guns and religion.
Kentucky recognizes any valid state permit whether they recognize our's or not. You're welcome California.
Like they say, where the government is involved things get screwed up. We need to get a permit that works in all states like a drivers license. I can't believe that this can't be done.
Handgunlaw.us links directly to the source, i.e. to the applicable state website. In the case of Michigan, it links to the Michigan Attorney General website, which lists Wyoming as one of the states recognizing the Michigan permit. When you click on Wyoming, it links you directly to the Wyoming AG's site which lists Michigan as one of the states it recognizes.
If that's not accurate, the issue is with Wyoming's AG, not handgunlaw.us.
Clinging to guns and God in PA...
Think that's bad? Take a look at California.

Don't honor my permit? Don't get my $$. Whether a business that posts a no guns sign or a state...
Wasn't there a fairly recent ruling on LEO's right to carry in all states?
If my memory serves it came about because some off duty LEOs got in a fight with some bikers in Sturgis.
Stay home,guard your stuff!

I live in Nebraska (one of those non-reciprocal states) and I just emailed my state senator to see if the topic of reciprocity has been raised, and if not, would she be willing to do so (she's a retired LEO, so I hope she would). Like just about everyone else on the forum, I see no harm whatsoever in states granting reciprocity to CHP holders from states with training standards that meet or exceed those of the home state. That said, I don't think that states should jack their training standards unrealistically high to "excuse" them from having to grant reciprocity, either. I haven't done much research on the subject, but I would imagine that there is some sort of federal legislation or guidance on the minimum training requirements for a CHP.
If I'm off-base on that last part, please feel free to straighten me out. Thanks, and I appreciate all the "pearls of wisdom" that are out there. I've picked up a few already, so hopefully there are plenty more where those came from.

[QUOTE=dlclarkii;1095849]It's called state rights and it's why we had a war in 1863. But I wish CCW was recongized by interstate commerce.
If it was regulated by interstate commerce, there would be no carry! Check out all of the other interstate commerce laws regarding firearms, ICC is one of the major ways of Gun Control!
