Virginia reins in concealed carry

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring (D) on Tuesday announced the commonwealth will no longer recognize concealed carry permits issued in dozens of other states (including Idaho). After a review, the state determined that dangerous people could legally obtain guns in 25 states with weaker gun laws and bring them into Virginia. Herring said Virginia State Police are now informing those states that Virginia will no longer honor their permits. "I have recommended the state police terminate the reciprocity agreements with 25 states whose laws are not adequate to prevent issuance of a concealed handgun permit to individuals that Virginia would disqualify,” Herring said in a statement/The Hill.
