    Good for many of us with FL permits!

    This is good news...

    Especially for those living in the states still controlled by the communists...
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    I hope this applies to Utah non-resident CHL.

    I have one and my FL non-res CCW is in processing...

    After settling in NY to establish residence in six months, I will attempt to apply for MA, NH and CT non-res licenses provided I am gainfully employed (one of the prerequisites for improving the success of receiving approved license, probably same applies in Monroe County in upstate NY despite shaky economy).

    RI and MA CCW permits are too difficult to obtain. I'd love to visit MA for Boston culture and landmarks, whale watching and maybe sailing, but one-year permit seems too short for a hundred bucks annually which is pretty costly for a future armed vacationer.

    For years I had both a FL and UT non-resident permits, to go along with my Colorado permit. I didn't renew my FL permit because the combo of my CO and UT permits make me good to go in most places I'm likely to visit.

    It really ticks me off to have travel thru IL on my way to visit friends and family in PA. Too bad the southern half of IL can't separate itself from "Chicago."

    As for the non resident UT permit I'm sure it is good for the newly changed WV law...... and that's a good thing for me. I remember having to put my guns away while driving that short stretch thru WV (OHIO to PA)

    The NRA bulletin says that the Governor signed the bill into law on May 8th, but does anyone know when it will actually go into effect? or has it already?

    I sent the Governor a nice thank you e-mail.

    He and the Attorney General of WV are very, very pro gun and 2nd Amendment.

    With a UT permit You can get a CT and NH non-res permit PA as well I'm sure. Look it up.
