AG Schmidt: Kansas concealed carry licenses now recognized in Alabama

Release Date: Sep 23, 2013

TOPEKA – (September 23, 2013) – Kansas concealed carry licenses are now recognized in the State of Alabama, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced today.

The Office of Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange last week notified the Kansas Attorney General’s office that a new Alabama law, which took effect August 1, recognizes valid concealed carry licenses from all other states. A similar law was passed by the Kansas legislature earlier this year, which allows all valid out-of-state permits to be recognized in Kansas when the non-resident permit holder is traveling temporarily in Kansas.

Alabama is the 34th state to recognize Kansas concealed carry licenses.

A complete list of states that recognize the Kansas concealed carry license is available on the Attorney General’s website at www.ag.ks.gov. There currently are 71,365 active Kansas concealed carry permits.
