New Mexico has added Wyoming and Nevada to the list of states it Honors. Wyoming will again honor New Mexico as they will honor anyone who honors them.
Reciprocity Agreements | New Mexico Department of Public Safety

Alabama, Arkansas and Kansas in the next few months will honor all other states. KS on July 1, AR on July 17 and Alabama on Aug. 1. All these states have also amended their carry laws opening up places where those with a valid permit/license may carry and AL will now officially be a Shall Issue state. Those state pages will be updated on www.handgunlaw.us when their new laws go into effect.

Arkansas new law has the most questions. They have defined what a Journey is, “Traveling outside your county of residence.” Other wording changes in their law have some stating that AR will be an Open Carry state also. They do not allow Open Carry at this time. Authorities are stating that Open Carry will still not be legal so it looks like there will be some court cases soon after the new law goes into effect. Handgunlaw.us recommends that you not Open Carry in Arkansas when the new law goes into effect until they get it ironed out in with authorities or the courts.

WV has changed how it will honor other states. They will now honor anyone who honors them. WV should establish reciprocity with Alabama, Georgia and Colorado in the coming months. They could pick up a couple others. Time will tell there. This new law on Reciprocity doesn’t go into effect until July.

Other states are making changes. Mag limits and such with California actually outlawing the sale of all Auto Loading Pistols. With their Micro Stamping law passed in 2007 now in effect unless a pistol has that feature it can’t be sold in CA. I am very interested in how the manufacturers will handle this on selling their firearms in CA.

Again I want to thank those who give me a heads up on changes in their state laws etc. I can’t do this by myself and all your assistance is very much appreciated. Handgunlaw.us will be updated with changes that have taken effect in the last few days later this evening or early tomorrow. Thank you again.

Wish New Mexico could make up their minds. First they do, then they don't. Then they do.
