New Mexico has dropped Virginia & Florida as states it honors. VA does not require a Shooting Qualification and Fingerprints are not Mandatory. That is the word I got from the VA State Police for the reason VA was dropped. NM Is just stating Florida’s Requirements are not similar to New Mexico’s. From what I am hearing and seeing this may not be the last state that NM will drop. Time will tell. www.handgunlaw.us has been updated to show these changes in NM/VA/FL. It will be a few days before Steve can make the changes on the Create A Map Application to show the changes listed above. You can view New Mexico’s DPS Website and see the listings and reasons Here: Reciprocity Agreements | New Mexico Department of Public Safety

I am getting feedback on the State Emergency Laws I added to each states page. Many of the entries are edited for length and feedback is making me look again at one or two paragraphs that should be added. Thanks to everyone who replied. It is very much appreciated. Also be aware that what I have for Emergency Laws is not complete. As I stated many were edited and there are most likely Administrative Rules that were adopted to comply with the Emergency Laws. ( My main point was to show if firearms could be restricted in any way in a declared emergency.

In Early March 2012 Oregon's State Board of Higher Education voted unanimously to ban all firearms on the system's seven campuses. Anyone who does any business on University property must agree not to carry any firearms. The policy allows people with Concealed Handgun License to be on campus but are barred from any Building or Arenas as they will be posted. Any Student/Facility or anyone who does business on University Property could be expelled from the property losing their student status or Job with the University System. Police and Military are exempt.

Not surprised by either really. At least they aren't as bad as Illinois or some of the North Atlantic States.... :-/

Yikes, I guess I will drop my NM application in the mail tomorrow. I just received my FL CHP and now it doesn't work in my home state. At least I can open carry until I get it.

NM has some different requirements than other States. One is that you cannot carry a caliber higher than the one you qualified on. So if you qualified with a 9mm, you cannot carry a 45 Auto. NM also requires a requalification on the range after two years. I wonder if this will affect other reciprocity agreements. Trust me, if you cannot qualify every two years, you aren't shooting enough and probably should not be carrying until you get some more training and/or coaching.

The two year requal seems like a money laundering racket however if that is what it takes, then I will be forced to pay the fees in order to carry.:p

I know this is an older post, but as I am getting my Florida CCW I double checked and NM and Fl again have Reciprocity as of July 23rd.

I'm confused now. (though I live in Texas) I thought that the Congress had passed the bill that required reciprocity of CHLs between states. Did I miss something?

Never passed. At least not yet. I think New Mexico, backtracked on dropping those other states, due to popular demand, if you know what I mean.

I think the only difference between Fl and NM chls was in FL you can be 18, whereas in NM you have to be 21. So if you are from FL and under 21you cant carry even if you are legal to in FL.

The way reciprocity works is that the out-of-stater must follow the visited state's law regarding any carry restrictions, even if the person's home state has different restrictions. So, before anyone visits a reciprocal state, one should check what state does/doesn't allow regarding carry. Surprises can be expensive.

Like the military are safe shooters. I enlisted, they gave me a gun and 15 minutes on the range and told me to go fight. Of course this 1957 and we didn't have a world full of crazies who just love the FREE KILL ZONES like College campuses, School zones, Government buildings protected by one old, blind deputy.

Sometimes States drop other states because of Money. Nevada dropped Utah because people could get a Utah CCW for 1/2 the price of what Nevada charged and for longer time. Lots of people were applying out of state for Utah permits so they wouldn't have to pay the extra money and because in Nevada you had to have the County Sheriffs ok to get it, where in Utah you don't have any restrictions regarding where you live.
