Update History

Below you will find a listing of updates to the state and federal laws posted here, with the dates of those updates. If we post a notice here that something has been updated in your state, or a state you may be traveling to, you should use the links provided on the map above to navigate to that states page and verify that change. If you are aware of a change that has been made and approved by your state that we may have missed, please Contact Us so we can verify that change and add it.

At the opening of the 2007 legislative session, we recognized that there was a need to keep people alerted to pending changes in law that would effect CCW licensees. To fulfill that need, we created a Notices and Legislative Action Page. Generally, its purpose is for potential state or local changes but it is also used as a conduit to other information of interest - most recently, as example - the definition of firearms policy in IHOP Restaurants in New Mexico. Mark noticed that I referenced that page here but there was no link to the page. If you become aware of something changing in your area that you think others need to be made aware of, feel free to notify us by email at admins@handgunlaw.us.

Update Listing/Tracking will be maintained for the past 60 days.
