    Virginia to stop honoring some out-of-state concealed handgun permits
    Beginning Feb. 1, Virginia will no longer honor the out-of-state concealed handgun carry permits of gun owners from more than two dozen of the states with which the commonwealth currently has reciprocal privileges.
    According to the Attorney General’s Office, “25 states lacked adequate disqualifiers to deny a permit to someone who would be barred from obtaining a permit in Virginia.” The Virginia State Police, on the advice of the Attorney General, has begun notifying the following states that Virginia will no longer recognize their concealed handgun permits.




    Delaware #

    Florida *





    Louisiana *

    Minnesota #




    New Mexico

    North Dakota *

    North Carolina


    Pennsylvania *

    South Carolina *

    South Dakota


    Washington #

    Wisconsin #

    Wyoming *

    * indicates states that will no longer recognize Virginia concealed handgun permits because of laws in those states that require mutual recognition of permits

    # indicates states that do not currently recognize a Virginia concealed handgun permit

    Concealed handgun permits from Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia will continue to be recognized, as their process for issuing concealed handgun permits is adequate to prevent someone who would be denied a permit in Virginia from obtaining one.

    This is absolutely insane and the SCOTUS needs to address it. My God, it is like traveling into different countries!!
