Minnesota DPS Announces Updated List of Out-of-State Handgun Carry Permits Recognized – New Information for Your State Permit

On Tuesday, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety released a list of out-of-state handgun carry permits  that are now recognized as valid in Minnesota.  This change is a result of NRA-supported legislation passed by the Minnesota Legislature in 2015.

Minnesota now recognizes permits from:

Delaware
Idaho (enhanced permit only)
Illinois
New Jersey
New Mexico
North Dakota (enhanced permit only) - ND Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has announced that North Dakota will now recognize Minnesota carry permits
Rhode Island
South Carolina
South Dakota (enhanced permit only)

This will now allow law-abiding citizens with valid permits to better protect themselves and their families while traveling to Minnesota. 

*******

Unfortunately, following a long-delayed review of Minnesota’s permit recognition by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, DPS announced that Minnesota will no longer recognize the following states due to changes in their carry laws over the last several years:

Missouri - Reason Given:  Missouri allows 19-year-old military personnel and veterans to obtain a permit.  Minnesota law does not allow issuing permits to anyone under 21.

Texas - Reason Given:  Texas allows 19-year-old military personnel and veterans to obtain a permit.  Minnesota law does not allow issuing permits to anyone under 21.

Wyoming - Reason Given:  Wyoming law gives local sheriffs discretion to issue permits to 18 – 21-year-olds.  Minnesota law does not allow issuing permits to anyone under 21.  In addition, Wyoming law does not require permit holders to demonstrate shooting proficiency.  Minnesota law requires training to include shooting proficiency.

Utah - Reason Given:  Utah law does not require permit holders to demonstrate shooting proficiency.  Minnesota law requires training to include shooting proficiency.

Your NRA-ILA is currently exploring options to resolve these issues and to further expand the list of carry permits from other states that Minnesota recognizes.  If you have any questions regarding validity of out-of-state handgun carry permits in Minnesota, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Commissioner’s office can be reached at (651) 201-7160.
