    Dang, Arkansas' permit has great reciprocity

    3 or 4 more states than FL or UT. How'd you guys do it? If only you could convince your legislature to allow issuance of non-resident permits...

    Of course, non-resident permits would probably drop it to the same number of states as UT or FL, considering how many states do not recognize non-resident permits.

    It is true but...

    It's true that Arkansas does have great reciprocity but we can't open carry here or at least the laws haven't been challenged; plus, why do we need to have reciprocity, isn't the 2A enough?

    I understand I want to live in an ideal 2A nation.

    When I first received my CCHP I said, "wow! why do I need a UT or FL permit; as I look at the map they would only gain a state or two between the two and I don't ever travel to those"

    I was mainly thinking of WA, MN, WI, and NV. Those are the primary gaps (ignoring the usual suspects of CA, NY, etc) of the "big" non-resident permits. None have all four as Arkansas does, and all four honor non-resident permits. Arkansas also adds ME, if you're a resident. Very sweet.

    You don't need a UT or FL permit as things stand now, the AR permit has better reciprocity than either.

    Michigan has the best reciprocity of any one permit.
    "No state shall convert a liberty to a privilege, license it, and charge a fee therefor.- Murdock vs Pennsylvania 319 US 105

    ...If the state converts a right into a privelege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right... with impunity.
    - Shuttleworth vs City of Birmingham, Alabama 317 US 262

    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.

    Looks the same as Arkansas to me. Naturally, they also don't issue non-resident permits.
