what the fuck it with the Unilateral Concealed Handgun License Agreements?

Texas Establishes Concealed Handgun License Unilateral Proclamation With Other States

May 4, 2005

Connecticut
Note: Effective immediately, Governor Perry has issued a proclamation that allows persons with permanent (plastic) concealed handgun licenses from Connecticut to legally carry in Texas. Connecticut permanent license holders will be required to follow texas law while carrying in this state. Temporary (paper) Connecticut concealed handgun licenses are not recognized under this proclamation. This proclamation is unilateral and is not a reciprocal agreement. Texas concealed handgun license holders will not be allowed to carry in Connecticut.

April 14, 2005

Iowa
Note: Texas Governor Rick Perry signed a unilateral proclamation recognizing Iowa Concealed Handgun Licenses on April 14, 2005 allowing citizens with concealed handgun licenses issued by Iowa to legally carry concealed handguns in Texas. This is not a reciprocal agreement, therefore, Texas Concealed Handgun Licenses holders may NOT carry concealed handguns in Iowa.

March 24, 2005

Nevada
Note: Texas Governor Rick Perry signed a unilateral proclamation recognizing Nevada Concealed Handgun Licenses on March 24, 2005 allowing citizens with concealed handgun licenses issued by Nevada to legally carry concealed handguns in Texas. This is not a reciprocal agreement, therefore, Texas Concealed Handgun Licenses holders may NOT carry concealed handguns in Nevada. This is the second “unilateral” proclamation in addition to eighteen reciprocity agreements. The handgun license reciprocity list includes Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, North Dakota and South Carolina.

December 29, 2004

New Mexico
Note: Texas Governor Rick Perry signed a unilateral proclamation on December 29, 2004 allowing citizens with concealed handgun licenses issued by New Mexico to legally carry concealed handguns in Texas. This is not a reciprocal agreement, therefore, Texas Concealed Handgun Licenses are NOT recognized in New Mexico and Texas citizens with concealed handgun licenses may NOT legally carry concealed handguns in New Mexico. This is the first "unilateral" proclamation issued by Texas.


this sounds very one sided to me folks

one reason i can think of for Governor Perry to sign this crap is he is trying to bring in more tourism to Texas.

The trend of 'us allowing them, but them not allowing us' bothers me.

The important part is he is recognizing the 2A rights of those other citizens.

Hopefully, down the road, they will take their collective heads out of their collective arses...

ETA: I'm carrying now due to reciprocity with ND, just in the interest of "full disclosure".

Hopefully the the agreement with NM will change to actual reciprocity soon, I think their age requirement of 25 was keeping it from happening before but IIRC they just passed legislation lowering it to 21.

When NM passed their CHL legislation, there was NO provision in the law for reciprocity. There is no official of the New Mexico gov't who is stopping it, it's just not allowed under the original CHL law. I understand they are working on this, but it will require new legislation.

Richardson signed the New Mexico law last week.


Unilateral is needed becuase some states word the reciprocity laws wierd, like we will recognize your state 90 days after you recognize ours.

Sounds good to me, it's nice to hear a politician respecting our rights for a change. Hopefully down the line these other states will bone up and grant reciprocity with Texas.

Good! Then North Carolina will be able to add New Mexico to their list of states with which they have a reciprocal agreement.

To add to this we receive a teletype usually every month or two (recently anyway) adding a state to an actual reciprocal agreement with Texas, we can practically all over the south legally as can citizens from those states, if you guyd are interested I'll get the current up to date list of the states with actual reciprocal agreements and not just a unilateral agreement with Texas. Unless of course it is already posted here or somewhere else on the internet.
