Utah allows Canadians to CCW

    After many months (January) Utah seems to have lifted their hold order on allowing CCWs to Canadians. I understood it was the Deputy Director (Public Safety, I think) that froze all issuings. The given story was that someone tried to start Utah CCW courses in Israel and that was too much attention, so all foreigners were halted. Good news all around, will update as more details come in.

    Glad to hear.

    We like seeing armed Canucks on this side of the border. Have you looked into getting a New Hampshire permit as well? Simple to get, and they border Canada.

    Glad to hear it. All gun toting canucks are welcome here. Liberal canucks are welcome to stay in Canada.

    What's involved in taking a pistol through a US/Canada border crossing?

    For that matter, what about the legality of a US citizen taking a pistol into Canada?

    So. What.

    If they're a Legal Resident Alien, they are allowed to purchase firearms. Why should basic rights of self defense be denied?
  13. Don't worry, Joe. We'll issue them to anyone, no matter where they are from, even Texas. Love, Utah.

    So how does a Canadian go about obtaining a Utah CCW? What's the first step???

    I'm assuming this is mostly symbolic. I mean, can a visiting Canadian even buy a handgun in the US of A? And I understand that for some Canadians getting one in their native country is difficult. Even if they could, does the US allow firearms brought in? I understand that an American is dead meat if he's caught armed in Canada unless he goes through a long and expensive permit process.

    Euclidean, I am betting that you're correct reference that the Utah CCW for Canadians is probably a symbolic gesture. However, where did you get the notion that it is difficult for a Canadian to obtain a handgun? I'm Canadian and I own several handguns. I also have several friends who collect handguns. I keep my licence current and neither I nor anyone I know has ever had a problem acquiring a handgun. I am curious as to where you get your information???

    So your telling me that canadians are allowed to carry in some states? They'll give you a licence even though you live in canada?

    crazy, I want one.

    We own guns, they are not hard to get as long as you have a licence. Point being it would be guns that we bring into your country, for hunting or target shooting competitions, etc. There is a form to fill at the border if you want to bring in any type of gun, the only guns that cannot come back into the country are prohibited weapons. So if a canadian owns one, has a licence for it, forget about traveling with it.

    Americans can bring guns into our country provided that it is not prohibited, they can also NOT carry them, no matter what. There is a form to fill for each province, as far as I know, that gives americans temp gun licences for hunting/transporting.

    brentn, this is beginning to sound like something that's worth pursuing. Just imagine, if enough of us apply maybe Utah and Alberta could establish some sort of CCW permit reciprocity :) :) :)
