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!
