Reciprocity: Kansas Concealed Carry Permits Now Recognized In New Hampshire

To the 91,000-plus concealed carry holders living in Kansas, there’s some good news coming out of New Hampshire–your permit will now be recognized in the Granite State (via KSN):

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said in a news release New Hampshire has notified the Kansas Attorney General’s office that Kansas-issued licenses are now recognized in that state. This brings to 37 the number of states other than Kansas that recognize Kansas licenses.

Since 2013, Kansas has recognized all valid out-of-state permits when the non-resident license holder is traveling temporarily in Kansas. As a result of this, many states that require their licenses to be recognized in Kansas before reciprocally recognizing Kansas licenses have now done so, Schmidt said.

Not exactly an earth-shattering development concerning Second Amendment rights, especially with the Newtown lawsuit that’s to be heard in 2018, but any step towards expanding that right is good news.
