    The problem with this is that the state AG has used the wording of this to say that the other state has to go first. I know most people would prefer simple recognition of all other permits, but I'm working on an incremental basis.

    How about tacking this on the end?
    Or how about replacing the thing with "If the other state will allow our permit holders to carry without additional permit, our state will allow those eligible to carry in their state to carry here."

    Depending on how you bend the law, that'd be instant alaska/vermont carry. :evil:

    The reason for the thread:

    I agree this needs clarificiation. From a quick look it looks like ND would recognize WY but their law reads similarly. "You go first" doesn't work if both say the other has to be first. I am sure there are other states that would be similar.

    Have you made any other headway on other states reciprocity?

    Congrats on getting CO through for us!!

    Need help writing letters, just PM me.

    One more thought: Maybe we should push for the legislation to be changed so it is like Missouri where they recognize any permit that is valid.

    Will be working on legislators soon to get public gathering prohibitions lifted too.

    We really get stuck here in NV because the state doesn't issue our permits.
    They are issued by the county of residence although valid statewide.

    Some states accept the a NV permit but there is no real reciprocity with any other state because of how they are issued and the requirements for getting a permit here. NV accepts even fewer because of the requirements for getting such a permit.

    It seems that many states have that kind of "who blinks first" language in there, and it does create a Catch-22 -- because if another state has the same or similar language, it is technically impossible for either to recognize the other even if they want to. Even simultaneous reciprocal recognition doesn't technically satisfy that language.

    You are much better pursuing language that simply recognizes any permit lawfully issued by any other state, and forget reciprocity. It works for several states. Utah, I believe, is one and they're close to you.

    States should not be engaging in infantile "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" games.
