    Nice compliment to and

    It’s wrong. It’s got a few statements that are not law in Utah.

    You are NOT prohibited from carrying in any church. Only ones that have posted or notified the public in the manners afforded by law.

    You are NOT prohibited from carrying in any law enforcement facilities. Only secure areas of jails.

    Utah recognizes the permits of all states, not just ones that reciprocate.

    If they have that much wrong, what else is wrong in other states? I’ll pass.

      Similarly wrong about Missouri, where most of the “banned” locations are only if they ask you to leave and you don’t. Even then, if they have to call peace officer the first offense is a slap on the wrist.

      Can’t recommend it, especially given how little info it conveys for Missouri.

  3. Shootin' Buddy says:

    Indiana is also incorrect (incomplete).

    I’ll pass along the input. I linked it as a favor.

  5. MikeJ says:

    I’d say the site is a much better resource. There isn’t as much info on this site as over at NRA’s. is a pretty good site too.

  6. McThag says:

    How can it be comprehensive if it doesn’t mention if you can or cannot own NFA?

  7. Dep 801 says:

    Unfortunately, still another state’s info is not correct. Major changes to North Carolina’s laws, which went into effect last December, concerning reciprocity, as well well as no carry areas have not been included.

    Our goal is to make this the number one resource for U.S. firearms laws.
