Update on what state's permits are valid in MN

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) has completed its 2016 annual Permit to Carry reciprocity review and will be posting updated state lists today on the DPS website as required by Minn. Stat. § 624.714, subd. 16.

After researching the laws of other states and communicating with their representatives, four states are no longer eligible for reciprocity because their state laws include age and training exemptions that are “NOT similar” to Minnesota laws that mandate a minimum age of 21 and require specific Permit to Carry training for all applicants. These states are: Arkansas, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Tennessee.
