Kansas concealed carry licenses now recognized in New Hampshire

Release Date: Apr 28, 2016

TOPEKA – (April 28, 2016) – An additional state has agreed to recognize Kansas concealed carry licenses, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said today.

New Hampshire has notified the Kansas Attorney General’s office that Kansas-issued licenses are now recognized in that state. This brings to 37 the number of states other than Kansas that recognize Kansas licenses.

Since 2013, Kansas has recognized all valid out-of-state permits when the non-resident license holder is traveling temporarily in Kansas. As a result of this, many states that require their licenses to be recognized in Kansas before reciprocally recognizing Kansas licenses have now done so.

A complete list of states that recognized the Kansas concealed carry license is available on the Attorney General’s website at www.ag.ks.gov.

There are currently 91,922 active concealed carry license holders in Kansas.
