For Immediate Release – Reciprocity Issue Resolution
The Nevada Firearms Coalition (NVFAC.org) and Grass Roots North Carolina (GRNC.org) announce successful co-ordination of restoration of Concealed Carry Reciprocity between Concealed Carry Handgun Permit holders from North Carolina and the State of Nevada. This will again permit North Carolina citizens who hold current North Carolina Concealed Carry Handgun (CCH) permits to carry concealed when visiting Nevada under their state firearm regulations.
The Nevada reciprocity list was updated and active as of 1 July 2022. It again recognizes concealed carry permits issued by sheriffs in states following the process used in North Carolina. This restoration of visiting firearm owners’ right to carry concealed for North Carolina permit holders concluded 18 months of co-ordinated effort between the state firearms rights organizations which enhanced contacts between state Department of Justice and Public Safety resources, and law enforcement. Prior to the co-ordinated efforts of NVFAC and Grass Roots North Carolina, Nevada’s list of recognized reciprocity states had dropped to twenty-one. The 1 July 2022 list now recognizes twenty-nine states, including North Carolina.
The Nevada Firearms Coalition worked closely with Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to resolve the issue, with the co-operation of Mr. George Togliatti, Director of the Nevada Department of Public Safety, and Mr. Togliatti’s Records, Communications, and Compliance Division, and we appreciate their efforts to resolve this matter.
