Nevada to Recognize South Carolina’s Right-to-Carry Permit

Monday, May 7, 2012

As of July 2012, South Carolina will be added to the list of states for which Nevada recognizes concealed carry weapons permits (CCW), bringing their new total to sixteen states. 

At their last meeting, the Nevada Sheriffs' and Chiefs' Association (NSCA) voted to add South Carolina and also determined that no states would be dropped from the approved list.  This move hopefully signals that the NSCA is comfortable with allowing more law-abiding non-residents to carry in Nevada.

South Carolina joins Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee and West Virginia as states whose CCW permits are recognized in Nevada.

The Nevada Department of Public Safety (DPS) is tasked with annually reviewing the CCW issuance policies of each state to determine whether or not their statutes are similar or more stringent than Nevada's and whether or not the state has an electronic database which is accessible 24 hours a day that identifies each permit holder.   

The results of the audit are reported to the membership of the NSCA and they vote on the recommendations from DPS.  The list of qualifying states will be posted on the Nevada Department of Public Safety website by July 1.
