Thread: Stupid Newbie Question - other states

  1. Stupid Newbie Question - other states

    If I read the map right, if I live in Michigan, then I can drive into Ohio and use my Michigan CPL with no problem, correct?

    What is the difference between "Honors Michigan Permit" and "Mi Res Permit Only"

    Thanks in Advance.

    You are correct if you have a Michigan Res Permit you can carry in Ohio. One think to keep in mind is you can carry in Ohio but you have to honer Ohio's carry laws. So you may want to read up on them to make sure you're not caught in an "gun free zone" ect.

    "Mi Res Permit Only" mean Ohio will only honer a Mi Res Mermit. Which means if I live in a state that Ohio does not honer I can not get an out of state MI permit and carry in Ohio.

    Make sense? Hope I explained it ok.

    now this confused me. what is the difference?

    Ohio honors Michigan Permits, it says Honors Mi Permit.

    Florida says, Mich Res permits only.

    Can I carry in Florida?

    Am I reading that only the RED and the Black States I need to be careful - besides honoring all state requirements (ie gun free zones, etc). Am I correct in assuming if I am driving thru these red and black states that I would be OK if I have handgun unloaded and locked?

  5. When a state specifies "Res. permits only" it means they will only honor that state's permits if the bearer is a resident of that state. If someone from Ohio got a Michigan permit, Florida would not honor it.

  6. Thanks!

    Bottom line is they don't honor non-resident permits only resident permits.

    Yep...there's an echo. But what's important is that joesmo now knows the law of reciprocity

  10. You guys aren't makin fun of me are you?

    I said I was a newbie, i didn't know the distinction between resident and non-resident permits, so the language was a bit confusing to me. <sorry>

    :-(

  11. No, Joe, we're not making fun of you at all. And there was nothing stupid about your question. Unless you're up on the lingo it can be very confusing. Glad to have you here, and don't worry about Stupid Questions because there are very, very few of those when you are new to something.
