    SNIP: The one-third or so of American adults who can’t obtain permits to carry concealed weapons from their home states need only look to Florida and Utah — and their mailboxes — to legally carry hidden guns.

    Because both states grant concealed-carry permits to non-residents and have reciprocal agreements with other states under which their permits are recognized, possession of a Utah or Florida permit gives non-residents the right to carry hidden firearms in as many as 32 other states — though often not the one in which they live.

    Tens of thousands of gun owners have obtained the non-resident permits, and their numbers are surging.

    Alabama will recognize a Florida permit...

    ...if you are not an Alabama resident.

    If you are a resident of Alabama, you need an Alabama permit to carry in Alabama.

    Louisiana has bills pending in the upcoming session that will change the reciprocity law so that only Florida resident permits will be honored here. They will likely pass, as the authors are the leading CC proponents of both houses.

    The nationwide reciprocity law was only 2 or 3 Senators short of passing, if I remember right... if states start pulling stuff like this, they're going to end up just like the Brady Bunch, shooting themselves in the foot.
