Wisconsin will be Shall Issue on 11/1/11 and those with a permit/license from the following states can carry in Wisconsin. Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands.

WI DOJ did not allow any applications until 11/1/11 so it can be up to 45 days for the first permit/licenses to be issued. DOJ has 45 days to issue Permit/Licenses applied for in the first 30 days and after December 1 they have 21 days to issue the Permit/License.

New Mexico DPS has removed Minnesota from the list of states it honored. They told me via email that they are still checking with Minnesota. Will have to wait and see on that. NM always has been slow about updating anything on their website and seems slow at doing anything.

On 12/1/11 North Carolina’s new law goes into effect. They will honor all other states permit/licenses at that time. The new law allows carry in State Parks and removes Financial Institutions as a place off limits in the law. They have also added specific Parking Lot Possession Laws. They are very specific and you need to read the NC page at www.handgunlaw.us and check the NC AG’s FAQ’s etc for more info on their parking lot storage laws.

I am still hearing that Michigan and Maine are talking about reciprocity. Louisiana has informed me that New Mexico has contacted them. So things are looking up even though NM removed MN from their list.

I am hearing that Idaho has changed their format for their Licenses to Carry Concealed Weapons. If they have Handgunlaw.us would like to have a scan of the new format. Handgunlaw.us is still looking for Images of The following: PI’s Permit to Carry in Hawaii, Guam Registration Card and or Permit to Carry, Puerto Rico Permit/License or Registration Card and U.S. Virgin Islands Permit/License to Carry and/or their Registration Card. If you redact info on the Permit/License if you would Please leave at least One Capitol Letter, One Lower Case Letter, and at least one number in each line so I know the font used and the font size. A description of each line would be greatly appreciated. Like the Permit/License # is in this format AA243566 or 342565A showing the number of letters and numbers. Same with the name/Address/etc in all caps or what is in all caps etc. Back ground images on the permit/license are the hardest things to rebuild. I completely rebuild the image using my name and change all items so that no one can gather any useful information from them.

You can send emails to admins@handgunlaw.us

Thank you for any assistance you can give Handgunlaw.us on Images.

I talked to Louisiana and they stated that Wisconsin had contacted them requesting info on their laws and wanting reciprocity. It may be that the states not listed have not gotten back with them yet. This is what makes the most sense to me. I believe that WI will add more states as they are contacted by the other states. I do know a few states are very slow at responding to anyone.

Heard back from two more states that are looking at Wisconsin. Montana will most likely honor Wisconsin. New Mexico is looking also. I have heard more from New Mexico in the last month than I have in the last 10 years. But do believe that WI will add more states as they have not heard back from all the states on their inquiries about their laws etc. When they do hear back they will then make the decision on honoring them or not but again I think the WI list will grow.

Thank you all for the kind works about Handgunlaw.us. It is very much appreciated.

Just as I thought. WI has added Montana and Montana and Pennsylvania have added Wisconsin to their lists. I think there will be many more additions to the WI list as the states contact WI letting them know exactly what their laws state.
