Kansas concealed carry licenses now recognized by New Hampshire

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) — Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said on Thursday that a 37th state has agreed to recognize Kansas concealed carry licenses.

New Hampshire told Schmidt’s office that concealed carry licenses issued by the state of Kansas will now be recognized in the state of New Hampshire.

This is a total of 37 states, now, that recognize Kansas-issued concealed carry licenses.

Kansas has recognized all valid out-of-state permits when the non-resident with the permit is traveling temporarily in Kansas. Certain states require their licenses to be recognized in Kansas before reciprocally recognizing Kansas-issued licenses in their state. But because Kansas recognizes all valid out-of-state permits, many of those states are recognizing Kansas licenses.

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