Ohio/Texas Reciprocity. . . State Issues. . . Links?
« on: May 06, 2015, 08:48:59 AM »
 Texas will now honor Ohio Permits issued/renewed on or after 3/23/15. Wisconsin honors Ohio in the same way. Both Wisconsin and Texas require a NICS check for them to honor a state and Ohio just went to the NICS check with their new law on 3/23/15. That is why WI and TX will only honor the Ohio permit issued/renewed on or after that date. You can see the Texas agreement here:  http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/rsd/chl/legal/reciprocity/OhioProclamation.pdf
and Wisconsin information here: http://www.doj.state.wi.us/dles/cib/conceal-carry/reciprocity

Tennessee – I made an error in the date the new Tennessee Parking Lot Storage Law goes into effect. It is July 1 and not the May date I put in my last post. See Bill Here: http://www.tn.gov/sos/acts/109/pub/pc0080.pdf
 
Arkansas – Takes effect July 22, 2015.  Polling places are no longer off limits by law. Those with a Valid Permit/License from any state can keep their concealed firearm on their person while dropping off or picking up children at a school and can leave their firearm in their locked motor vehicle while on school property.  You can see the bill here: http://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/assembly/2015/2015R/Bills/HB1505.pdf
                                                                                                                                                                           Oklahoma – Effective November 1, 2015 Oklahoma will preempt all knife laws in the state. No local authority can have any knife laws stricter than state law. Switchblades will also be legal. Knife Rights is the main group behind pushing knife preemption laws in the different states. You can follow their progress at their website: http://www.kniferights.org/  You can view the Oklahoma House Bill 1460 Preemption here: http://webserver1.lsb.state.ok.us/cf_pdf/2015-16%20ENR/hB/HB1460%20ENR.PDF

Tennessee – Effective July 1, 2015 Tennessee residents will be able to apply for a Lifetime Permit. Application is the same as a regular permit and cost is $500. Handgunlaw.us believes this lifetime license “will” cause a few states to stop honoring the Tennessee permit. Time will tell but it has happened to other states that went to lifetime permits.

Ohio -  The Ohio Attorney General has updated his reciprocity page stating that Ohio now honors all other states permit/licenses to carry. With the addition of Texas the only other state at this time that Ohio can obtain reciprocity with is the state of Maine. AG’s website:  http://www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov/Law-Enforcement/Concealed-Carry/Concealed-Carry-Reciprocity-Agreements

The one thing that turns people off more than anything else on the internet when looking for information is “Broken Links.”  www.handgunlaw.us has over 1500 links on the state pages and major documents. Keeping tabs on them  is a huge task.  Some states have kept info on the same URL for years. Attorney Generals especially like to move everything to new pages when they get into office. Well some do!  Utah BCI just did this. If you would like to help www.handgunlaw.us keep those links up to date check out your states page links and report any broken links to admins@handgunlaw.us  and even better tell me they are all OK. I keep a listing of when I check links on every document and letting me know the links are “OK” or “Broken” saves me a lot of time. Any assistance you could give Handgunlaw.us in this matter would be greatly appreciated. 
 
I post about broken links and then this happens. Due to an update by CPanel on how Google analytical does something with a site, links to images inside a document will not open at Handgunlaw.us at the moment. I am just the research part of Handgunlaw.us and not a computer geek and don’t understand it.  All the state pages and major documents are fine it is just links to images inside a document that don’t work. Steve is working on the issue and hopes to have it corrected in the next few days. There are only 8 to 10 links inside documents at Handgunlaw.us that go to an image, ND Class 2 Map, TX 30.06 signs and a few others. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause the users of our site and are working on correcting this issue.
