    Thumbs down New Mexico is NO LONGER RECOGNIZING Virginia CHPs

    [Re-posted from a VA-ALERT with prior approval of VCDL]

    [First person singular pronouns (I, my, mine, etc) and PVC reference Philip Van Cleave, President VCDL]

    I have just learned, with confirmation from the Virginia State Police, that New Mexico is NO LONGER RECOGNIZING Virginia CHPs because we don't require range time. We never have, odd that they are just now figuring that out. Perhaps they had a change in their law somewhere down the line.

    New Mexico does NOT honor Florida or Utah non-resident permits, either.

    Here are your options:

    1. Open carry

    2. In your vehicle you can have a concealed handgun. New Mexico views your vehicle as an extension of your home.

    Virginia continues on the highroad, honoring New Mexico permits.
    VA-ALERT is a project of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc. (VCDL).

    VCDL is an all-volunteer, non-partisan grassroots organization dedicated to defending the human rights of all Virginians. The Right to Keep and Bear Arms is a fundamental human right.

    Somehow NM's gun laws have always seemed confusing and peculiar to me. They are just sort of really
    different from other places.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    I myself believe in range time to prove you know ur weapon well enough to carry it. Hence that we don't need nobody going off half cocked not knowing what to do. I also believe in study work and a some sort of test on the gun laws to protect all. But some flunk outs will still get through the cracks and put our 2a rights in jeopardy with stupid decisions.

    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    Billspider,

    See: Reciprocity Agreements | New Mexico Department of Public Safety

    "NM does not recognize FL permits, as permitting process is not substantially similar. As a result, FL will not recognize NM permits."

    As always YMMV.

    However, the OP was informational -- for the protection of our members. No need to start a debate, IMHO.

    We have kicked that opinion issue around on a number of threads in the past.

    I do not believe this is the time and place place to argue Constitutional Carry or other attempt to reduce the chilling effects on a Constitutional protected human right -- yet again.

    I hope we don't take that distraction up here.

    Billspider,

    Looks as if our comments cross-in-posting.

    Likely my fault -- as I was working from the email alert.

    Sorry.

    If NM will not honor FL's permit, it is automatic under FL law that FL will not honor NM's permit.

    Then VA needs to stop recognizing New Mexico's CC permits in return. There needs to be a 2 way street and one should not benefit from the other that is not helping out.
