North Carolina Right to Carry Reciprocity Law In Effect!

Monday, August 18, 2003

On Thursday, August 14, North Carolina's Right to Carry reciprocity law officially went into effect.  This law gives valid carry permit holders from states that have similar permit issuing requirements as North Carolina the ability to carry their firearms for personal protection in North Carolina, and has led several states to recognize North Carolina permits.  The North Carolina Department of Justice (NCDOJ), headed by Attorney General Roy Cooper (D), has identified the following states as those which have an official reciprocity agreement with North Carolina:  Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Idaho, Kentucky, Michigan, Montana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and Virginia.  The NCDOJ will continue to develop and maintain the list of states that meet the standards for establishing reciprocal agreements.  Those on the Internet can look for updates on reciprocity, as well as regulations regarding the carrying and transportation of firearms, by going to
