West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has agreed to concealed carry reciprocity agreements with 10 more states, a boost to Second Amendment supporters and lawful gun owners.
“We recently affirmed agreements with Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina and Wyoming,” Morrisey told the West Virginia Record. “We expect more announcements to be made in coming weeks from the remainder of previously existing concealed carry agreements nationwide.”
Morrisey emphasized that anyone traveling to another state should check to make sure of reciprocity status and laws about concealed carry or other firearms laws. With the end of summer, upcoming autumn travel for youth sports or academic events, college sports and hunting seasons, it’s a good idea to make sure before hitting the road. That’s something you can emphasize to your customers, too.
The United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) applauded Morrisey’s decision and again urged passage of the federal Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017.
“The United States Concealed Carry Association applauds the Attorney General’s decision to recognize Second Amendment rights across state lines,” said Tim Schmidt, Founder and President of the United States Concealed Carry Association. “This move will ensure peace of mind to license holders who choose to carry and exercise their Second Amendment rights while traveling across state lines.
“It also serves as a reminder to Congress that the Second Amendment rights of responsibly armed Americans should be recognized across state lines, and the Senate can make that happen by voting on the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, which has already passed in the House of Representatives.”
