State Concealed Carry Permit Information

Note: We make every effort to keep these laws updated but as they can change quickly always be sure to check with the official state website link for up to date information.

States marked with a yes under the 'Non-Resident Permits' column will only honor a non-resident permit when the holder is a resident of the permit's state.

States marked as highly restrictive (Maryland, New Jersey & Hawaii) rarely issue permits to citizens.
