NV Honors MI - AZ On Honoring ID . . . WV Again

Nevada has added Michigan back on the list of states it honors. Nevada dropped them June 23 of this year. Nevada changed their law on how they honored other states and Michigan didn’t meet the requirements as they didn’t allow their permit holders info on the national law enforcement telecommunications system. This system allows an officer to confirm if a permit is valid or not. You can see the latest Nevada listing of who they honor here:

If you read Arizona’s reciprocity statute common sense would lead anyone to believe they honor all other states as long as the permit holder is 21. Their Law is all the way at the bottom of this posting. But Arizona DPS is not bending on only honoring the Idaho Enhanced Permit. You can see the paperwork AZ sent to ID stating they would only honor the ID Enhanced.

There has been a lot of communications back and forth by and the AZ Citizens Defense League about this issue with the AZ DPS and the AZ DPS will not budge. With AZ being a permitless carry state it only affects persons from Idaho with the standard permit if they want to carry in a place in AZ that serves alcohol (Red Lobster, Friday’s Etc) for on premises consumption. AZ law requires a valid permit to carry concealed in any place that serves alcohol. It just adds another twist in how states honor each other with things getting so complicated in numerous states it is getting very difficult for use good guys/gals to stay within the law.

I have mentioned this before but just got a very irate email from an Indiana resident telling us that we were full of it and other choice words and was 100% incorrect! (Their Words) and that WV has reciprocity with Indiana. The WV AG posts a so called “Reciprocity Page” on his website.

If you look at it common sense would tell you that West Virginia honors Indiana (THEY DON”T!) The map shows states that honor West Virginia. If you go to West Virginia’s “On the Mark” pamphlet
and go to page 4 you will see the same map and on page 5 you will see a header “Handgun Reciprocity Information.” There it states they don’t honor Indiana, Montana, Nevada, Vermont and Wisconsin. (WV and NV do honor each other now as they agreed after the publication of this document). has tried for two years to get them to change the Header on the map to States that Honor WV and remove the word Reciprocity or put two different maps up showing states WV honors and States that honor WV. Nothing has been changed. I even note that on the West Virginia Page at

So be aware of information anyone supplies even You are the one who will pay the price for incorrect information. With the way laws are written, then applied and on how a state posts that information can be two or more different things.

Arizona Statute 13-3112. Concealed weapons; qualification; application; permit to carry; civil penalty; report; applicability
Q. This state and any political subdivision of this state shall recognize a concealed weapon, firearm or handgun permit or license that is issued by another state or a political subdivision of another state if both:
1. The permit or license is recognized as valid in the issuing state.
2. The permit or license holder is all of the following:
(a) Legally present in this state.
(b) Not legally prohibited from possessing a firearm in this state.
R. For the purpose of establishing mutual permit or license recognition with other states, the department of public safety shall enter into a written agreement if another state requires a written agreement.
S. Notwithstanding the provisions of this section, a person with a concealed weapons permit from another state may not carry a concealed weapon in this state if the person is under twenty-one years of age or is under indictment for, or has been convicted of, a felony offense in any jurisdiction, unless that conviction is expunged, set aside or vacated or the person's rights have been restored and the person is currently not a prohibited possessor under state or federal law.
