Kansas Concealed Carry Permits Recognized in Pa.

KSAL StaffJuly 24, 2013
A law taking effect Monday allows people with concealed-carry permits to bring their guns into public buildings.

Pennsylvania has become the 31st state to recognize Kansas permits for carrying concealed firearms.

Attorney General Derek Schmidt said Tuesday that Pennsylvania joined the list as a result of legislation passed by Kansas lawmakers this year. The law recognizes all valid out-of-state permits when a non-resident permit holder is traveling temporarily in Kansas.

A list of reciprocating states is available on the attorney general’s website.

The new Kansas law also requires people with concealed carry permits who move to Kansas to obtain a Kansas-issued license to legally continue carrying concealed guns. The changes took effect on July 1.

There are more than 64,000 active Kansas concealed carry permits.
