NM Honors More . . . AL, AR, KS & WV Updates!

New Mexico has added Wyoming and Nevada to the list of states it Honors. Wyoming will again honor New Mexico as they will honor anyone who honors them.
http://www.dps.nm.org/index.php/nm-c...ty-agreements/

Alabama, Arkansas and Kansas in the next few months will honor all other states. KS on July 1, AR on July 17 and Alabama on Aug. 1. All these states have also amended their carry laws opening up places where those with a valid permit/license may carry and AL will now officially be a Shall Issue state. Those state pages will be updated on www.handgunlaw.us when their new laws go into effect.

Arkansas new law has the most questions. They have defined what a Journey is, “Traveling outside your county of residence.” Other wording changes in their law have some stating that AR will be an Open Carry state also. They do not allow Open Carry at this time. Authorities are stating that Open Carry will still not be legal so it looks like there will be some court cases soon after the new law goes into effect. Handgunlaw.us recommends that you not Open Carry in Arkansas when the new law goes into effect until they get it ironed out in with authorities or the courts.

WV has changed how it will honor other states. They will now honor anyone who honors them. WV should establish reciprocity with Alabama, Georgia and Colorado in the coming months. They could pick up a couple others. Time will tell there. This new law on Reciprocity doesn’t go into effect until July.

Other states are making changes. Mag limits and such with California actually outlawing the sale of all Auto Loading Pistols. With their Micro Stamping law passed in 2007 now in effect unless a pistol has that feature it can’t be sold in CA. I am very interested in how the manufacturers will handle this on selling their firearms in CA.

Again I want to thank those who give me a heads up on changes in their state laws etc. I can’t do this by myself and all your assistance is very much appreciated. Handgunlaw.us will be updated with changes that have taken effect in the last few days later this evening or early tomorrow. Thank you again.

If I read the CA law correctly, pistols on the current safe list can still be sold, but a new or revised pistol would need the micro stamp to make the list.

From what I am reading they are stating that no new firearms can be sold in CA unless they have Micro Stamping Technology. I hope you are correct! Will have to look harder to see. Again I hope you are correct.

Quote:
(7) Commencing January 1, 2010, for all semiautomatic pistols that
are not already listed on the roster pursuant to Section 12131, it
is not designed and equipped with a microscopic array of characters
that identify the make, model, and serial number of the pistol,
etched or otherwise imprinted in two or more places on the interior
surface or internal working parts of the pistol, and that are
transferred by imprinting on each cartridge case when the firearm is
fired, provided that the Department of Justice certifies that the
technology used to create the imprint is available to more than one
manufacturer unencumbered by any patent restrictions. The Attorney
General may also approve a method of equal or greater reliability and
effectiveness in identifying the specific serial number of a firearm
from spent cartridge casings discharged by that firearm than that
which is set forth in this paragraph, to be thereafter required as
otherwise set forth by this paragraph where the Attorney General
certifies that this new method is also unencumbered by any patent
restrictions. Approval by the Attorney General shall include notice
of that fact via regulations adopted by the Attorney General for
purposes of implementing that method for purposes of this paragraph.
The microscopic array of characters required by this section shall
not be considered the name of the maker, model, manufacturer's
number, or other mark of identification, including any distinguishing
number or mark assigned by the Department of Justice, within the
meaning of Sections 12090 and 12094.
Above is the section of the law on microstamping. It's says no new pistols without stamps can be added to the CA safe list, but current ones could still be sold.

I was just reading something similar in a press release when I was notified of your post. That is really good news. Thank you.

"Commencing 2010"? Is there a new statute, because that obviously didn't happen.

Fantastic news about NM. I'm particularly happy they recognize NV. Thanks

2010 or when the Attorney General certified the microstamping, which he has now done.
