Trenton, NJ –-(Ammoland.com)- Earlier this week, rumors began circulating that anti-gun Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane had invalidated the Keystone State's concealed carry reciprocity agreement with Utah.

Unfortunately, those rumors are true.

Pennsylvania no longer honors Utah non-resident permits, and those attempting to carry in Pennsylvania with a Utah non-resident permit are subject to arrest and prosecution.

ANJRPC is reviewing all available options and will have additional updates.

ANJRPC is currently suing the State of New Hampshire over a similar but unrelated carry reciprocity issue.

    1. I live in VA and starting in Feb my VA permit won’t be accepted. I took the Utah ccw nonresident class only to find out it is not accepted in PA now. You can however; get a PA nonresident permit.

    2. I live in NJ you can’t fart with out a permission here! But my family goes to the poconos every year for vacation we rent a cabin hike in the woods and I also hunt in Ohio so my son and I took the conceledcarry class so we could carry in PA and ohio well now I guess it’s just Ohio ! Can I open carry in PA ?

    3. See how permits are an infringement of the 2nd Amendment. Come to Alaska you don’t need no stinkin permit. Open or concealed no permit required only duty to inform if approached by officers. Of course couple no carry places.

    4. This sucks I thought something looked different while researching getting the UTAH permit. Having PA would be nice as I’m stuck here in CT the liberal cesspool. Having to go through less BS states as possible while driving from this hellhole is why I want UTAH. Looking less attractive at this point.

    5. Never thought PA would cave… I knew NJ sucked.. That why my retirement and life savings will be spent in the south…

    6. My family used to vacation in PA because I could keep my family safe. We spent a lot of money in PA for MANY years! Looks like my money will now be spent on the Delaware shores.. SAD!!

    7. I’m an Ohio resident who 2 mo. ago spent $150 to get a Utah permit so I wouldn’t have a problem traveling through Pa. Today it came in the mail so I clicked the reciprocity map to watch the colors change and nothing happened with Pa. I’m torqued!!

    8. I was a resident of PA., my family is in PA.
      might I suggest that the PA residents petition
      the Governor and blanket the AG. With faxes
      phone calls and emails to complain about this
      grossly manipulation of justice and law.
      I live in Massachusetts, one of the most anal-puckerd
      states in the union. But i I still can carry concealed,
      I think the time has come to revolt against the self serving
      politicos that you have in office. You Still Can Vote Can’t
      You. Good luck with the first of many threats to your freedom.

    9. So basically, All New Jersey law-abiding citizen residents are just plain screwed.

      I’d gladly get a PA license to carry in Philadelphia but PA won’t issue a permit to anyone who can’t get a permit from their home state. So New York, DC, and New Jersey Residents are OUT, despite the fact that 2/3 of South Jersey works in PA!

      Now, basically there is no way to defend one’s self.

      Forgive me for not wanting to end up like Amber Long.

    10. I would want to look at the Utah training requirements for nonresidents before I was comfortable with these “permits” in New Mexico.
      My Family members and fellow Officers deserve to know that CCW license holders are well trained.

    11. This is another attempt of some liberals to take away our rights to carry guns to protect ourselves. What part of “shall not be infringed upon” do politicians not understand. THIS COUNTRY WAS WON WITH GUNS AS WE AS PRIVATE CITZENS CHOOSE TO DEFEND OURSELVES WITH GUNS.

    12. Something keeps rattling around in the back of my head about the results you should expect when you elect Dems.

    13. This the same State Attorney General that nixed an ongoing criminal investigation of Philadelphia Democrats taking bribes and payoffs.

    14. This is outrageous. I own a vacation home in the Poconos. My wife and I have Utah non resident permits so we could carry in PA while at our other house. Now Im screwed. My primary residence is NJ.

    15. PA completely dropped Utah. No Utah Permit is valid in PA at this time. PA is talking to Utah about an agreement and if/when that agreement is signed (Handgunlaw.us believes it will be signed) PA will only honor the Utah permits issued to Residents of Utah. Again NO UTAH PERMIT IS VALID IN PA AT THIS TIME!

    16. We choose our vacation destinations on the ability to protect our family while traveling. I guess PA is no longer on the list.
