IMPORTANT NOTE FOR UTAH AND FLORIDA CONCEALED WEAPONS PERMIT HOLDERS- NO MORE NEVADA CARRY!
Nevada authorities have decided that Utah Concealed Weapon Permits will NOT, repeat NOT, be recognized in Nevada effective July 1, 2009.
Even though Nevada has recognized Utah permits for several years, they recently reviewed permits from all states and decided that they will no longer recognize permits from Utah or Florida. The excuses given are that Nevada law requires the other states permit requirements to be “substantially similar to” those of Nevada. However, since Utah does not require live fire to get a permit, Nevada will not longer recognize our permit. Florida permits are good for seven years, but Nevada permits are only good for five years, providing the excuse for dropping Florida.
The people involved with Nevada permits seem to include a few powerful members of the law enforcement community who are hostile to private citizens self defense rights.
Utah Shooting Sports Council and the National Rifle Association will continue to pursue actions to restore recognition of Utah permits by Nevada, but it may take several years and changes to the Nevada laws.
Meanwhile, DO NOT CARRY IN NEVADA with a Utah or Florida Concealed Weapons Permit!
Well, I guess no more going to Nevada for me.
Does anybody know the Open Carry laws or Car Carry Laws in Nevada?
