CCW Recognition Finally a Reality!
In May, after years of legislative wrangling, the Nevada State Legislature passed Senate Bill 237, which will permit out of state CCW permit holders whose permit standards are substantially similar to that of Nevada’s to carry firearms for self-defense in Nevada. SB 237 mandates that recognized states have a 24-hour accessible database.
The Department of Public Safety, tasked with determining which states complied with Nevada's new recognition law, have issued a statement announcing that permits from Alaska, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Tennessee, and Utah will be recognized.
This is a great first step on behalf of Right-to-Carry in the Silver State. For more information on Nevada's recognition process, please visit www.nvrepository.state.nv.us.
