RICHMOND — Attorney General Mark R. Herring (D) plans to announce Tuesday that Virginia will no longer recognize concealed carry handgun permits from 25 states that have reciprocity agreements with the commonwealth.
The states are: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Agreements will remain with West Virginia, Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.
Unexpected but not surprising coming from an administration so wedded to Gun Control. My fear is that if we do not spread the word, coming Feb 1 there will be a lot of unaware people visiting or traveling through the Commonwealth can get a charge for a gun carry violation, a Class 1 misdemeanor that brings fines of up to $2,500, up to 12 months in jail, or both. After that it becomes a felony.
The option if you must travel through occupied territory is to get one of the permits from the approved states.
And Virginia does need to get rid of the assholes they have in the Executive come next election.
