    This is an absurd act that will cost Nevada's economy. Florida has upwards of 600,000 license holders, and will turn many off from visiting Nevada.

    Nevada Will No Longer Recognize Utah and Florida Right-to-Carry Permits

    Thursday, June 25, 2009

    Effective, July 1, Nevada will no longer recognize Right-to-Carry permits from Utah or Florida. They have, however, added Ohio and West Virginia as recognized states.

    Each May, the Nevada Department of Public Safety conducts an audit of states and their Right-to-Carry laws for the purpose of determining which states it will recognize.

    The Nevada DPS dropped Utah because it does not have a live fire requirement, which is a part of Nevada's training requirements. When the Nevada DPS first began its state by state audit of Right-to-Carry laws in 2007, DPS admitted to NRA representatives that they overlooked the live fire training requirement. After further review, they determined that Utah wasn't similar enough to keep it on the list of recognized states.

    Florida will no longer be recognized because its permits are now valid for seven years instead of five. (How ABSURD is this?)

    The Nevada DPS and the Nevada Sheriffs and Chiefs will be hosting their annual Right-to-Carry forum in Carson City in August with a teleconference feed to Las Vegas. We encourage all members to attend this informational meeting. Details will be forthcoming.


    Here is a discussion on it we're having in Florida...

    Can the Glockers put in a word for us with the Governor's office?

    NV DPS was changed. UT & FL removed and WV & OH added.

    Utah DPS changed NV to a state that does not recognize UT permits.

    FL DACS removed NV from list of states that have reciprocity with FL.

    Also on the FL website.

    "Florida will no longer be recognized because its permits are now valid for seven years instead of five."

    How assinine is that? Just because Florida found a more efficient system???
