Are you planning a trip in the near future? Wondering if you are going to be able to have your gun in tow? It is important to check ahead of time on the carry laws of the state you are traveling to.

I will be heading to Pennsylvania in a couple of weeks, and it is a no brainer that I would want to bring my gun with me. I went and checked to make sure the state would recognize my Georgia carry license. It was disheartening to see just how many states do not honor carry permits from other states.

TRENDING ON Keep And Bear

Sorry. No data so far.

In this country, the right to bear arms is a constitutional right. So why is it that in some states it is either illegal per state government to possess a firearm or they do not recognize a permit from another state within the USA? It does not make sense.

Thankfully, Pennsylvania DOES honor my Georgia carry license, and therefore I will not be left defenseless. There are actually 29 states that honor Georgia concealed carry permits. They are as follows:

Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi,
Montana, North Carolina, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah,
Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming

There are some states that are switching to constitutional carry, which means you are not required to have a permit. However, there are other states that DO NOT honor or recognize a non-resident carry license. They are: Arkansas, Florida, Colorado, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carloina, Oklahoma, Ohio, South Carolina, Texas.
