Nevada Changes CCW Laws For Gun Blogger Rendezvous!

Well, no, not really, but they DID add reciprocity with eight other states. It sure did come at a convenient time, though, and it's a big step in the right direction I'd say. Actually, here's the straight story, taken verbatim from the Reno Gazette-Journal.
Beginning Oct. 1, the state of Nevada will recognize permits from eight other states that allow people to carry concealed weapons, the Nevada Department of Public Safety announced.

Those states are Alaska, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Tennessee and Utah.

The 2007 Nevada Legislature passed a law that allowed concealed carry permits from other states to be used in Nevada. The Department of Public Safety, with the help of the Nevada Sheriffs and Chiefs Association, reviewed the laws from other states. It found 16 other states that had an electronic database accessible 24 hours a day that identifies valid permit holders. Of those 16, only eight had concealed carry permit laws that were as stringent or more stringent than Nevada, the Department of Public Safety said.

It will review the list of approved states every year, the Department of Public Safety said.

Here's the same article on the Reno Gazette-Journal's own website, if you'd like to read the original.

I don't see Washington on the list, but maybe one of these days......

Thanks, Rob, for the heads-up on this!

Before you cheer this news, let's read what the "restrictions" are on CHL in the reciprocity states.

One that is almost universal (OR and AK are the only states I know of that don't have it) is that you can't carry in bars, restaurants with bars, stores that sell liquor, and some to all public buildings.

Lessee, where would you think that you would have the greatest need for a carry gun. Bars and near bars, grocery and/or liquor stores.

As generators of the warm fuzzies, CCW permits are nice, but in the cold hard reality of gunfighting for survival, the restrictions make little to no sense.

"stores that sell liquor"

Thats not correct. A handgun is not allowed to be carried where liquor is SERVED. It's not served in grocery stores and liquor stores, etc. so it's perfetly legal to carry where it's sold and not served.

And, TN is an open-carry state, there is no concealment requirement.

If you’re dumb enough to belly up to a bar get drunk with a CCW then you probably don't deserve the right to carry at anytime. If I go to a place that serves liquor and food to eat dinner, I am not going leave my ability to defend my life in the car. Our right to protect ourselves comes with huge personal liabilities and daily decisions. With a little commonsense, our right to defend ourselves and our families will not be taken from us.
