TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Pennsylvania has become the 31st state to recognize Kansas permits for carrying concealed firearms.
Attorney General Derek Schmidt said Tuesday that Pennsylvania joined the list as a result of legislation passed by Kansas lawmakers this year. The law recognizes all valid out-of-state permits when a non-resident permit holder is traveling temporarily in Kansas.
A list of reciprocating states is available on the attorney general's website.
The new Kansas law also requires people with concealed carry permits who move to Kansas to obtain a Kansas-issued license to legally continue carrying concealed guns. The changes took effect on July 1.
There are more than 64,000 active Kansas concealed carry permits.
