Gun Control: Statesäó» Laws and Requirements for Concealed Carry Permits Vary Across the Nation
Carol R. Cha (au); Eileen R. Lawrence (au)
There were at least 8 million active permits to carry concealed handguns in the U.S. as of Dec. 31, 2011. States and local authorities control the issuance of concealed carry permits. Applicants who wish to obtain such permits are required to meet certain state eligibility requirements, such as minimum age and the lack of a felony conviction. States also decide which other statesäó» permits to honor. Typically, states enter into reciprocity agreements that establish which out-of-state permit holders can carry concealed firearms within each state. Members of Congress have introduced legislation that would require each issuing state to recognize any permit. This report provides information on the status of concealed-carry permitting. It describes (1) the extent to which states allow concealed carry permits, and how select statesäó» eligibility requirements and recognition of other statesäó» permits differ; (2) what processes select states use to help ensure they revoke permits when holders no longer meet eligibility requirements; and (3) how law enforcement officials in select states determine whether permits they encounter are current and valid. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
