Lots of rumors floating around on the Louisiana boards stating that Louisiana will soon drop Florida permits from their reciprocity list, due to lower training standards in Florida. Anyone got the scoop on this that can share with us?

Also, why in the world does Florida not honor nonresident permits from other states, but expect other states to honor theirs? Seems to me if Florida recognizes the need for and issues nonresident permits, they would honor other states that do as well.

Proper training before being allowed to exercise a fundamental right. Outstanding. Next we will have to pass a competency test before we are allowed to exercise the right to free speech.
I wonder if there soon will be a marital test to determine if your marriage is 'good enough to be considered a marriage' before your 5th am rights kick in?
*shakes head* I love it.

as for your post, I've not heard anything about it yet, except for your posts here and there... I hope it's not true, Florida already lost Nevada because Nevada doesn't like that our licenses are good for 7 years now.

Go figure

This sounds like an Internet rumor. Here's why: Louisiana has reciprocity with Alabama and honors Alabama permits. Alabama has no training requirement for a permit. In some counties the sheriff has a training requirement, but the state does not have one. So is there a rumor that LA is going to drop AL? If not, I say it is just so much talk.

Well, we’re headed to New Orleans and the low country in late March of 2010. If LA decides to stop accepting FL CCL, I’ll cancel our week trip.

It’s my understanding that Garth Brooks, is going to do some shows in Vegas this fall. But since NV has dropped Florida’s CCL, we’re not going.

The way I see it is any state that does not accept Florida’s CCL does not want my tourist dollars. Shame too because when I worked for the Fed’s we loved to go to New York for shows, Boston for some great New England seafood, and California coastline, and wine country.

According to the Florida Concealed Carry Web Site... People who have Non Resident permits from other states cannot carry in Florida.

Link

6) These states issue concealed carry licenses to qualified individuals who are non-residents. These non-resident permits cannot be honored under Florida's reciprocity provision.

Arizona
Idaho
Indiana
New Hampshire
North Dakota
Pennsylvania
South Carolina
Tennessee
Texas
Utah
Virginia

Competency Test before you can speak?

Listening to some, elected officials, news broadcasts and political appointees that would not be a bad idea.

I think you misunderstood the question. Florida honors permits from other states that have reciprocity, but it does not honor non-resident permits issued by any state. Louisiana does not issue a non-resident permit.

I agree that it's a rumor. Since Louisiana honors permits from my state that has no training requirement whatsoever how could they stop honoring Florida because of lower training standards? No training standards is a low as you can get.

Not all. Such as my home state of Arizona. I live in Connecticut now and my AZ permit is no good in FL. This was just recently re-confirmed as I just sent in my FL renewal application. Checkout handgunlaw.us and the reciprocity map. Here's the link below. Notice Florida and the SEVERAL states from which it doesn't recognize non-resident permits.

Arizona, Utah, Texas, Idaho, North Dakota, Tennessee, South Carolina, Virginia to name a few for starters. NON-resident permits from these states are NOT valid in Florida.

Handgunlaw.us

In fact, if I remember correctly, Florida doesn't recognize ANY other states' non-resident permit.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm unfamiliar with the non-resident permits and took the question to mean a resident permit used in a state of non-residence.

Question: What is the purpose of a non resident permit. I'm thinking to allow someone to carry in a state that doesn't have reciprocity but I don't want to assume. AGAIN :embarassed:

One possible financial reason: to encourage out-of-staters to purchase FL permits. Note too that there is only one type of FL permit, issued to FL residents and to FL non-residents.

I don't think it's financial. It it were, Florida would be like my current money grubbing state of Connecticut and not honor ANY other state permit. Resident, non-resident...doesn't matter. Gotta pay to play here. :mad:

At least Florida has reciprocity with a LOT of other states, as long as it's a state resident issued permit. So, my AZ one up here in CT is no good in FL, but when we move back to AZ (please God, make it soon!), then I'll be a-okay to visit my wife's family in FL as long as I have a current AZ DL showing that I'm an AZ resident.

And, there IS a difference between a FL resident and non-resident permit. The address won't be a FL one for non-residents. AZ is a bit different as there's no address on the permit at all. It has to be accompanied by a government issued photo ID to be valid because there is no picture on the AZ permit, either. One nice thing is the permit never has to be re-issued when you move...anywhere in state or out of state because "change of address" doesn't apply.

I've been told by a couple of LSP officers that it is very likely Louisiana will stop honoring Florida non-resident permits. The reasoning behind it is that you can get a Florida permit more easily than a Louisiana permit (less restrictions on who can qualify for one). Therefore, people from La are applying for a Fl non-resident and getting approved for it. Those same individuals, if they applied for a La permit would be denied under the restrictions for a permit in La.
Essentially they are going to close a "loop-hole" for individuals to get a permit in La who might not otherwise qualify. They will still honor permits from Fl which are given to residents of Fl. They just wanna stop the La residents from using a Fl non-resident permit as their permit. What I've heard it's not rumor and may be going in effect sooner rather than later.

Um, generally, if you are a resident of a state, an out-of-state permit isn't valid there. Maybe for a short time after moving, but not for the long term. Just like a DL. You have to get a new drivers license for the state you live in once you establish residency. So, a non-resident FL permit would be no good for a permanent LA RESIDENT, even if LA honored it, anyway.

Right now Fl non res permits are honored in La even if you are a full time permanent resident of La. So people get those rather than La permit. That's why they are going to no longer honor them.

Seems to me the better way to "fix" this would be to only allow LA residents to carry with a LA resident permit. The route they are taking would be require them to rule out every single state that issues non-resident permits.

Exactly...like pretty much every other state. LA seems to be the exception. But, that's their own stupidity for letting permanent LA residents carry on a non-resident Florida permit in the first place. :twak:

LA will not stop honoring FL Permits. They may stop honoring a FL Non Resident permit that is issued to a resident of Louisiana. It will take the Legislature to stop the practice of LA Residnets getting a FL permit to carry in LA with. The AG might be able to make a ruling that says LA Residents must have a LA permit to carry in LA. But LA will not stop honoring a FL resident or non resident permit that is issued to someone who is not a resident of LA.

LA will honor anyone who honors their permit. They honor PA and in PA to get a permit you have to be 21, Alive and have no criminal Record. That is it. It costs about $27. Alabama has very low standards much like PA (Which is the way it should be) and LA honors their permit. So any rumors are most likely about Residents of LA carrying on a FL non resident permit.

Florida, for example, gets a lot of people coming down for several months each year but with permanent residence elsewhere. The nonres permit is just what they need.
