Georgia Is The Next State To Recognize Your Kansas Concealed Carry Permits

Kansas residents with concealed carry permits can now carry their weapons in Georgia.
Attorney General Derek Schmidt says that Georgia has become the 33rd state to honor permits issued in Kansas.
Kansas lawmakers passed new gun legislation this year that recognizes all valid out-of-state permits when a non-resident permit holder is traveling in Kansas. 
The new law also requires people with concealed carry permits who move to Kansas to obtain a state-issued concealed carry license.
The changes took effect in July.  
There are now more than 67,000 active Kansas concealed carry permits.
