Ohio Announces Reciprocity Agreement With North Dakota
From The Outdoor Wire
According to Jim Irvine, Chairman of Buckeye Firearms Association, this is good news. "For Ohio citizens with a Concealed Handgun License, this means they can now exercise their Constitutionally-protected rights in a total of 29 states including Ohio."
States where Ohio's Concealed Handgun License is valid include:
Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
Irvine says some people are confused about the difference between "reciprocity" with other states and states that "honor" licenses.
"A total of 20 states now have 'reciprocity' agreements with Ohio, meaning Ohio recognizes their license and they recognize Ohio's license. With other states, Ohio does not recognize their license, but they "honor" Ohio's license.
"But for the Ohio license holder, this is a distinction without a difference. If you have an Ohio Concealed Handgun License, you can carry a handgun legally in a total of 29 states, including Ohio, as long as you follow the rules of each state."
