Some states even have reciprocity agreements with 30 or more other states. Although some states may be recognized by another state, that same state may not recognize any other state, case in point; California, New York, and Connecticut will not recognize any permits to concealed carry from any other state. Because of the wide range of differing, and seemingly random, policies like this, it is imperative for permit carriers in Thornton, CO to become an expert regarding the specific concealed carry limitations and gun laws for not only Thornton, CO, but the surrounding areas as well.
