Posted on 09/25/2013 6:11:26 AM PDT by marktwain
Complete news release from the Kansas Attorney General's Office: Kansas concealed carry licenses are now recognized in the State of Alabama, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced today.
The Office of Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange last week notified the Kansas Attorney Generals office that a new Alabama law, which took effect August 1, recognizes valid concealed carry licenses from all other states. A similar law was passed by the Kansas legislature earlier this year, which allows all valid out-of-state permits to be recognized in Kansas when the non-resident permit holder is traveling temporarily in Kansas.
Alabama is the 34th state to recognize Kansas concealed carry licenses.
A complete list of states that recognize the Kansas concealed carry license is available on the Attorney Generals website at www.ag.ks.gov. There currently are 71,365 active Kansas concealed carry permits.

Hope this is a trend.

I cannot adequately articulate my contempt for that demonic little creep.
Drop dead, Dingy!
(I don't mean the ISP)
If reciprocity is legislated at the federal level, then reciprocity can be rescinded at the federal level in an instant by simply passing a bill or enacting an executive order. Also, federal reciprocity would inevitably come with federal restrictions on what constitutes an "acceptable" state CCW provision.
Better to keep things decentralized. We have "shall issue" CCW everywhere except the northeast and California.
The next "shall issue" CCW push should be for NJ.
If there is national reciprocity, then the federal government gets to regulate it. Right now it is a State issue, I would prefer the feds keep their grimy finger off my concealed carry permit.
Hopefully this is a vision of the future.
“but Harry Reid will not allow a vote.”
Uh uh uh, you mean “Pro-Gun” Harry Reid will not allow a vote.
