Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Firearm Concealed Carry Act. Provides that the Department of State Police shall by rule allow for non-resident license applications from any state or territory of the United States (rather than just those states or territories with laws related to firearm ownership, possession, and carrying, that are substantially similar to the requirements to obtain a license under the Act). Provides that a license to carry a firearm issued by a recognized state or territory shall be considered a license issued by this State to carry a concealed firearm provided: (1) the licensee remains eligible to possess firearms; (2) the foreign license to carry a firearm remains valid at all times the licensee is carrying a concealed firearm within this State; and (3) the licensee follows all the laws, rules, and regulations of this State regarding possession, transport, and carrying of firearms. Provides that the Department shall by rule adopt written criteria of minimum standards that must be maintained by any state or territory to become or remain recognized under the Act. Provides that the Department shall annually review and publish the recognized states and territories. Provides that any state or territory removed from the recognized list shall be terminated from recognition under the Act 90 days from the date of publication. Provides that additions to the recognition list shall be effective immediately upon publication.
