Nevada Has Stopped Recognizing Arizona CCW Permits

Posted By on Fri, Mar 8, 2013 at 4:30 PM

If you're traveling to Nevada, make sure to leave your concealed carry weapons at home — officials from the Silver State have decided that they'll no longer recognize CCW permits issued by Arizona. Apparently, Arizona's training requirements are too lax for Nevada officials to abide by.

From the Associated Press, via the AZ Capitol Times:

The decision takes effect this week, after a unanimous vote last Thursday from the Nevada Sheriffs’ and Chiefs’ association.

Association officials say Las Vegas firearm instructors first notified them about the changes in the training requirements.

Nevada Department of Public Safety officials say they contacted the Arizona Department of Public Safety and confirmed changes were made in 2010 and 2011.

Those include adjustments to the minimum training requirements, and the elimination of statutory marksmanship and judgmental shooting requirements.

Association officials say the requirements are now too different from Nevada’s for the state to recognize the permits.

So we're clear, this means that a state with a fairly easy-going reputation on personal liberties (gambling, prostitution and, yes, gun ownernship,) has decided that Arizona is making it too easy for people to carry weapons wherever they want.

Something to consider.
