    swinokur ask me to post this to Maryland Shooters.

    The state of Utah has put out information on what states will honor their Regular (21 or Older) and Provisional (18 – 20) Permits. The chart shows what states honor each permit and for non residents which states you have to have a permit from your home state to apply for their Regular or Provisional Permit. If your state issues permits but doesn’t issue to those 19-20 you can get a Utah Provisional Permit without your states permit. https://bci.utah.gov/concealed-firearm/reciprocity-with-other-states/ There is also more information here: https://bci.utah.gov/information-about-the-provisional-concealed-firearm-permit/

    Georgia has made it easy for those moving into Georgia with a Permit Georgia honors. You now have 90 days to apply and get a Georgia Permit before your former home state permit is no longer valid in Georgia. Knife Rights has also gained another victory. Georgia has expanded their legal knife length to 12 inches from 4. Knife Rights got State Preemption on all knife laws a couple years back so no local governments can have knife laws more restrictive than the state law. You can see all of this and more at http://www.legis.ga.gov/Legislation/20172018/170162.pdf

    Starting November 1, 2017 Oklahoma will allow any Active Military if 21 years of age or older to carry in Oklahoma on their military ID with no other permit. Oklahoma will also start issuing permits to 18 to 20 year old Oklahoma Residents who are Active Military. Oklahoma will continue to issue to their non military residents who are 21 or older and honor all other states permit/licenses for those 21 or older. http://webserver1.lsb.state.ok.us/cf_pdf/2017-18 ENR/SB/SB35 ENR.PDF On this same date Oklahoma will remove the law against carrying your legal defensive firearm on a bus. Oklahoma defines a bus as: 1. "Bus" means a vehicle designed to carry passengers that is part of a network of passenger vehicles for use by the public, running on a regular schedule of routes, times and fares;

    Nevada will now issue permits to Active Military or Honorable Discharged/Released Veterans 18 to 20 years old. The Governor signed the bill May 22 and it went into effect immediately. More and more states are starting to issue to Military at 18 while keeping the age for Non-Military Service applicants at 21. Handgunlaw.us wants to advise all Military under 21 who obtain a permit from any state that issues them to be careful and look closely at the laws of any state you are going to visit and use reciprocity to carry there. Some states will honor your states permit but only to those 21 years of age or older.

    National Parks: Carry in National Parks is allowed if you can legally carry in the state the Park is located. This law covers firearms and not Chemical Sprays. Yellowstone did ban chemical sprays after the Firearm Law were revised allowing firearms. They removed the ban a couple years ago and Handgunlaw.us has just found that out. The NRA-ILA has a listing of all National Parks and links to Park Specific Rules/Regulations. It is a handy link to bookmark if you travel to any of the parks. https://www.nraila.org/articles/20160817/firearms-regulations-in-national-parks
    Below is the federal law that allows for the carrying of firearms in National Parks etc. Administers Buildings and other areas a park designate can be off limits but by federal law any place off limits in the Park “Must Be Posted” per 18 USC Sec. 930. If they don’t have a sign then there is no violation of Federal Law.

    Title 36 Chpt. 1 Part 2 § 2.4 Weapons Traps and Nets.
    (h) Notwithstanding any other provision in this Chapter, a person may possess, carry, and transport concealed, loaded, and operable firearms within a national park area in accordance with the laws of the state in which the national park area, or that portion there of, is located, except as otherwise prohibited by applicable federal law.

    Chapter 50 Chapter 1 Part 27 § 27.42 Firearms.
    (e) Notwithstanding any other provision in this Chapter, persons may possess, carry, and transport concealed, loaded, and operable firearms within a national wildlife refuge in accordance with the laws of the state in which the wildlife refuge, or that portion thereof, is located, except as otherwise prohibited by applicable federal law.

    Learned something. I copied my post from another site I posted it on. That site must have shortened URL's so what I copied had links that wouldn't work. I have fixed that. Thank You for Pointing that out.
