Minnesota Says GFY To 4 States In A Move To No Longer Recognize Their Carry Permits, Including Utah

Published

With the annoyance of no national reciprocity for carry permits, holders have to keep themselves up-to-date with the latest laws from each state that they ever plan to visit… no to mention their own state.

The amount of actual research needed to make sure we’re legal is literally absurd. There’s simply no other way to put it.

And now, to the list of states throwing out what they consider trash, Minnesota is no longer doing business with the following state’s permits for carrying of firearms:

Four states were removed from the 2014 list

  • Missouri passed a law in 2014 to allow 19-year-old military personnel and veterans to obtain a permit. Minnesota law does not allow issuing permits to anyone under 21.
  • Texas passed a law in 2014 to allow 19-year-old military personnel and veterans to obtain a permit. Minnesota law does not allow issuing permits to anyone under 21.
  • Wyoming law gives local sheriffs discretion to issue permits to 18-21-years-olds. Minnesota law does not allow issuing permits to anyone under 21.  In addition Wyoming law does not require permit-holders to demonstrate shooting proficiency. Minnesota law requires training to include shooting proficiency.
  • Utah law does not require permit-holders to demonstrate shooting proficiency. Minnesota law requires training to include shooting proficiency.

But wait, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel! Some states were added to the list of acceptable participants. Those include: Delaware, Idaho (enhanced permits only), Illinois, New Jersey, North Dakota (enhanced permits only), Rhode Island, South Carolina and South Dakota (enhanced permits only).

Get to reading, travelers. You don’t want to cross an invisible line and become a felon now…do you?
