Wisconsin –-(Ammoland.com)- Greetings in Freedom,

Just a heads up to individuals who use a UTAH permit to carry concealed in MN.

Your Utah permit is NO LONGER RECOGNIZED by the State of Minnesota.

The following list shows the permits MN recognizes. Utah is no longer among them.


Unfortunately, the best advice I can give you in order to be legal in MN is to apply for a non-resident MN permit. Minnesota has very cumbersome training mandates and requires you retake the training class EVERY 5 YEARS when you renew your permit.


Other states do have reciprocity with MN but KEEP IN MIND that you are NOT exempt from Gun Free School Zones (1000 ft from the edge of school property) unless you have a permit issued BY THE STATE THE SCHOOL ZONE IS IN.

Some people are not concerned about the Federal Gun Free School Zone law (and the fact that carrying with reciprocity DOES NOT allow you to carry in them) but you should ask yourself if you ever actually USE your gun in self-defense, given the propensity of the Fed’s to now get involved and “investigate” many high-profile self-defense shooting cases… (George Zimmerman) Do you think they’d nail you for carrying illegally in a school zone?

Carry on,

Wisconsin Carry, Inc. is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the preservation and reclamation of the rights of law-abiding Wisconsin residents to carry in the manner of their choosing. We believe that “open carry” and “concealed carry” are choices to be made by law-abiding citizens based on their situation and preference. Wisconsin Carry, like many gun-rights organizations in Wisconsin, is investing a great deal of resources to get Wisconsin law changed to allow concealed carry this next legislative session by proposing Constitutional Carry. Wisconsin Carry, Inc. will continue to use legal recourse to deter unlawful treatment of law-abiding Wisconsin residents who currently exercise their right to open carry, and soon will exercise their right to concealed carry in Wisconsin.

No surprise here. Minnesota is a democratic state even though some list it as neutral, the Democrats’ have carried that state since 2008. Utah is a Republican state always has been always will be. I checked and I can’t seem to remember anything I lost in that state and sure as hell wouldn’t pay extra to them for the privilege to carry a weapon. I believe the second amendment already gives that permission.

So if I had my Utah permit prior to the new law am I still legal to carry until it expires?

I have always advised my permit-to-carry classes that the best non-resident permit to get is Arizona. Its cheaper than Arizona but I guess that’s a moot point now.


In other words, Minnesota sucks.


If the Utah permit was lawful before, it must be lawful now because government is prohibited from passing ex post facto laws by the US Constitution and their individual oaths of fidelity thereto! Requiring permits to exercise fundamental, individual, “incorporated” civil rights is UNLAWFUL AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL to begin with and any such laws are void, null and of no effect as if they never existed according to several Constitutional Law precedents. BUT THE PEOPLE MUST STAND UP FOR AND DEFEND THEIR RIGHTS IF THEY WISH TO RETAIN THEM! 18 USC Sections 3, 4, 241, 242 42 USC Sections 1983, 1985,… Read more »
