PA Now Honors Ohio

Post by Gary Slider » Thu Apr 09, 2015 9:27 pm

The PA AG is listing Ohio as a state they will honor.

Great news, Gary! I have to say I'm stunned that the PA AG made the determination to recognize OH.

Now we just need official notification that TX and NH have recognized OH...

Gary:

Again, Thanks!

I got a PA non-resident because TX honored it. PA and TX are about the only place I ever go anyway :D....

(I could almost walk to PA from here. Well, if I was 50 years younger. My club is a couple miles inside OH from the PA border, and my #1 ammunition components source is a couple miles inside PA from the OH border.)

I'm stunned, too. PA's AG has a very bad 2A reputation, and OH's AG isn't a lot better, although he's been following the GOP line pretty well compared to his prior record.

Regards,
Stu

The Ohio AG jumped the gun on TX and NH. HE should have stated they were talking to them or something. TX will honor Ohio SOMETIME in the future. They will Honor anyone that honors them but they have a set procedure they have to go through first. I don't know how NH does it. They seem to just pick and choose.

Gary, that could be - but a representative from their office actually said they have signed a reciprocal agreement with TX. If that isn't true, it is much different than simply jumping the gun. End result is the same of course...

From what the Ohio AG has on his reciprocity page there can't be a signed agreement at this time or they would have Texas and New Hampshire listed on the Ohio page. They added Wisconsin when they stated they would honor Ohio. It is more than jumping the gun as an Ohio resident carrying in TX or NH at this time could be in big trouble.

I don't disagree, Gary - just mentioning what their representative told me in an email, and of course we all read their press release.

And the trouble it could cause a person carrying on an Ohio license in TX is exactly why I've been cautioning folks in the forums and on Facebook to wait and be careful.

I can't help but wonder why BFA or OFCC hasn't posted this as gospel in the form of a news alert. It makes me question the validity of the interpretation of Pa Ag's website by handgunlaw.us. 6106(b)(15) Section 2 of the Uniform Firearms Act was written in 1995. If someone has more of a "concrete" confirmation, I would greatly appreciate it so I can pass it one to my CHL/range members.

The Attorney General of Pennsylvania has the authority by statute to honor other states permit/licenses to carry. She has made that decision when it comes to Ohio and posted that on her State AG Website at the URL below.

https://www.attorneygeneral.gov/Media_a ... greements/

The following states have been granted statutory reciprocity without a formal written agreement under 6106(b)(15), based on the determination of the Attorney General that the other state has granted reciprocity to Pennsylvania license holders, and that the other state's laws governing firearms are similar.

Colorado
Iowa
Indiana
Kansas
Louisiana
Montana
North Dakota - Effective August 1, 2013 only North Dakota Class I permits are recognized in Category 2.
Ohio
Wisconsin

Hightechredneck:

Can't help you on your original question, but I think Gary Slider did.

Meantime, Welcome Aboard!

There's a sticky at viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10097 that you should have a look at, but it's not mandatory. Potentially hazardous to your health, too :D....

Enjoy!

In addition to Gary's quote from the PA AG website specifically listing Ohio, I notice OFCC has sent out an email alert with that information as well.
