After backing by anti-gun groups including Michael Bloomberg's various front-groups, Kathleen Kane became Pennsylvania's Attorney General. She quickly used this position to change the conditions and interpretations of various agreements related to the reciprocity of carry permits with various states in questionably legal ways. Significantly, she has changed Pennsylvania's policy of honoring permits from certain states only if the holder is not a Pennsylvania resident, or also holds a Pennsylvania License To Carry Firearms.

  • If you are a Pennsylvania resident with an Arizona permit only, it will not be honored in Pennsylvania after August 8th, 2013.
  • If you are a Pennsylvania resident with a Florida permit only, it will not be honored in Pennsylvania after June 7th, 2013.
  • If you are a Pennsylvania resident with a Virginia permit only, it will not be honored in Pennsylvania after August 8th, 2013.
