HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced on Monday that his office has reviewed and upgraded concealed-carry agreements with 13 states.
New agreements are in place with Idaho and Alabama.
Shapiro also announced that in 30 days, Pennsylvania will no longer recognize concealed-carry permits issued in Virginia.
“They have a weaker standard for their background checks, which is something they acknowledge,” Shapiro said. “Because of that, we will be filing a notice of termination, and that will be effective in 30 days.”
Shapiro says Pennsylvanians will still be allowed to carry a concealed firearm in Virginia.
Shapiro said Pennsylvanians with concealed-carry permits should visit the attorney general’s website before hitting the road,
