Georgia AG is stating that they will not honor the Virginia Permit to Carry. They are stating that Virginia will not honor permits Georgia issues to Military 18-20. Virginia requires those carrying with another states permit to be 21. Thing is Georgia honors at least six other states that will not honor a Georgia permit issued to those under 21.  I donít understand their reasoning as every state that honored Georgia in the past is honored by Georgia but they are now stating: Not Virginia! There are people maneuvering to get Georgia to honor Virginia and hoping they succeed. As I have seen over and over again through the years government moves very slowly when they want to!  Georgia statute on how they honor other states is as follows.

The Maine State Police updated their website today backing off their requirement that a Maine Resident or Maine Non-Resident Permit was required to carry in Arcadia Nat Park.  They are stating now that you have to have a permit they Issue or Honor. Do be aware that Maine does not honor all other states even though they have permitless carry.  They are now stating this:

Acadia National Park (Maine Permit required; 12 M.R.S. ß756) NOTE: Pursuant to 25 M.R.S. 2001-A (2)(F), Maine will recognize a concealed handgun permit issued by another state to its resident if that state recognizes Maineís resident concealed handgun permits. A resident permit from that state is valid for concealed carry of a handgun within Acadia National Park

You can view this info at the Maine State Police Website here: http://www.maine.gov/dps/msp/licenses/weapons_permits.html

I have talked to those in charge in New Hampshire and they state there is a signed agreement with Virginia that was effective July 1, 2016. They also told me they would be updating their website shortly. Shortly to NH can be weeks as they have been slow in updating their site in the past. New Hampshire has not added Virginia to the list of state it honors as of posting this.  https://www.nh.gov/safety/divisions/nhsp/ssb/permitslicensing/plupr.html

The Maine/VA/NH Info has already been added to www.handgunlaw.us  The changes in Maine and carry in Arcadia Nat. Park will be updated late this evening.

Good information! Thanks, Gary!
What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.
