NE, NJ, CT, TN Info Updates. Handgunlaw.us & State Contacts

Nebraska/New Jersey – Nebraska will no longer honor the New Jersey Permit to carry. Not sure why they dropped them. https://statepatrol.nebraska.gov/ser...ka-reciprocity

Tennessee now has a two tier permit system. They changed the name of their regular permit to Enhanced Permit and now issue a “Concealed Only Permit” that doesn’t allow for open carry, is cheaper and takes less training. This permit will not be honored in as many states as their Enhanced Permit. North Dakota and Nebraska have already stated they would not honor the Tennessee Concealed Permit. https://www.tn.gov/safety/tnhp/handgun/apply.html

Connecticut’s Office of Legislative Research has put out a Summary of State Gun Laws. It is very comprehensive and has links to all the relevant laws coving each section. For Connecticut residents it is a must read to keep up with all the laws you must abide by.
https://www.cga.ct.gov/2020/rpt/pdf/2020-R-0025.pdf

Politics - Seems there are more anti-gun bills being introduced in state legislatures this year than I can ever remember. It also seems to me there are more and more anti gun politicians. We all need to contact our state/national reps and voice our opinions on bills we like or don’t like.
Links to all state Legislatures can be found at https://www.congress.gov/state-legislature-websites

www.handgunlaw.us – February 6, 2006 Handgunlaw.us came online. We are now in our 14th year of supplying carry information on all the states. The above changes will be updated on Handgunlaw.us late this evening or early tomorrow.

I would like to express my appreciation to Gary for maintaining Handgunlaw so well. It's my go-to web site for information about permits and gun laws in other states. It has to be a Herculean task to stay abreast of all this.

I'll echo Blanca's praise for your work, Gary. Your posts don't get many replies, but they're an invaluable resource.

New Jersey won't reciprocate any concealed carry permit and many states will only reciprocate with states that will honor their permits.

Since NJ has less than 1000 concealed carry permits issued out of a state with 8 million people, it's not really a big deal.

Which is, of course, the meaning of "reciprocal."

We sometimes lump states that unilaterally recognize all other states' permits under the category of reciprocity, but unilateral recognition is not reciprocity.
