Pennsylvania has become the 31st state to recognize Kansas concealed-carry licenses, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said Tuesday.
The recognition allows Kansans holding a permit to lawfully carry concealed handguns while traveling in Pennsylvania, Schmidt said.
Some of the 19 states that don’t recognize a Kansas permit include California, Illinois, New York and Wyoming. For a complete list of the states that recognize and don’t recognize a Kansas permit, go to www.ag.ks.gov.
Kansas recognizes all valid out-of-state permits when the non-resident permit holder is temporarily traveling in Kansas, Schmidt said.
