    Florida and Utah permits may no longer be recognized in Nevada?

    Just a heads up for people with Florida or Utah Permits. The State of Nevada has not updated their website regarding this issue, but coming form Clark Aposhian, this alert sounds legit.

    This is the alert that I received from the Utah Shooting Sports Council.

    ***************
    IMPORTANT NOTE FOR UTAH CONCEALED WEAPONS PERMIT HOLDERS- NO MORE NEVADA CARRY!

    Nevada authorities have decided that Utah Concealed Weapon Permits will NOT, repeat NOT, be recognized in Nevada effective July 1, 2009.

    Even though Nevada has recognized Utah permits for several years, they recently reviewed permits from all states and decided that they will no longer recognize permits from Utah or Florida. The excuses given are that Nevada law requires the other states permit requirements to be “substantially similar to” those of Nevada. However, since Utah does not require live fire to get a permit, Nevada will not longer recognize our permit. Florida permits are good for seven years, but Nevada permits are only good for five years, providing the excuse for dropping Florida.

    The people involved with Nevada permits seem to include a few powerful members of the law enforcement community who are hostile to private citizens self defense rights.

    Utah Shooting Sports Council and the National Rifle Association will continue to pursue actions to restore recognition of Utah permits by Nevada, but it may take several years and changes to the Nevada laws.

    Meanwhile, DO NOT CARRY IN NEVADA with a Utah Concealed Weapons Permit!

    ***************
    For what its worth, it this turns out to be true, Neveda still allows for loaded open carry without a permit.

    What about FL?

    Guess I won't be visiting NV if this is true.

    NV and DE are the only 2 states I would gain with a FL permit, but I go to NV sometimes. Still waiting on my FL permit, 92 days.

    Yeah...I'm getting a Utah one because of Delaware. I like the beach there

    I figured though that someday I might want to visit Nevada...guess not. Maybe I'll visit someplace else on the west coast instead that has reciprocity, like WA.

    Thumbs up This is NOT true.

    From another forum:

    Nevadashooters.com

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Someone copied this over to the Nevadashooters web site and this is the response from one of our moderators.

    "I'm calling BS. Loud and proud, I'm calling BS."



    "I just got off the phone with Lisa up at the Washoe County Sheriff's Office. She directed me to a website Nevada Department of Public Safety where they have a section called "CCW Changes" http://nvrepository.state.nv.us/Spec...W_CHANGE.shtml.

    Utah is still listed. She informed me there were no changes to reciprocity in the 2009 legislature, but if there were ever any changes that they would be listed there. Last change to CCW laws was in 2007 with the generic revolver clause and this updated list (MI was added in 2008):



    Out of State Carry Concealed Weapon Permit Recognition

    Effective Oct 1, 2007

    In accordance with NRS 202.3689 passed by the 2007 Nevada Legislature the State of Nevada will recognize the following States' CCW permit holders:

    Alaska
    Arkansas
    Florida (added January 3, 2008)
    Kansas
    Louisiana
    Michigan (added May 9, 2008)
    Missouri
    Nebraska
    Tennessee
    Utah

    This law allows holders of valid permits from these states to carry a concealed weapon while in the State of Nevada. The permit must be in the possession of the issuee at all times while carrying a firearm. "

    I received that same notice as an NRA-ILA alert, so looks like it's probably official.

    This is the type of problem that is encountered when the state has lax requirements to obtain a CHL.
    Those who use the internet without any firing qualification will find that their licenses will not be recognized. Not a problem if you don't travel, but if you do travel you will find problems with the recognition of your license.

    I have heard that NM may drop FL for the same reason. There is a move in AZ that will likely result in NM dropping them in time.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    This seems to be a money play. UT and FL are the best non-resident permits people can get. Both are recognized in 30 plus states. Nevada decides to drop just those 2? And FL simply because its now a 7 year permit?
    If they want to start getting revenue back, they'll need to do non-resident permits through the mail, or else they'll have a bunch of OCers from out of state to deal with.

    Well...I will not be visiting Nevada anymore. If they want to take the authoritarian,autocratic,antigun approach I will spend my leisure time in another state that has casinos and carry rights. That is not hard to find. I also work for an employer where I get to choose whether we retrain in Nevada or Pa. each year for my maintennce crews. We will now be sending them to Pa..This only means a few thousand dollars per year,but considering the bucks they were dropping in Vegas...it adds up. I can live life just fine without ever setting foot in Nevada.
