West Virginia: Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Expands to Kansas

Monday, January 30, 2012

On January 27, official Right-to-Carry reciprocity was recognized between West Virginia Attorney General Darrell McGraw and Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt.  West Virginia now has Right-to-Carry reciprocity with twenty-three other states.

Kansas will now recognize valid Concealed Pistol Licenses from West Virginia, and in turn, West Virginia will recognize valid Concealed Carry Handgun Licenses from Kansas.  Permit holders must comply with the laws that apply in whichever state they are traveling.

The NRA would like to thank West Virginia Attorney General Darrell McGraw and Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt for their assistance in this effort.  To view the reciprocity agreement letter, please click here.
