NEVADA -- Big changes to gun laws in nearby Nevada may change how some Utahns travel through there.
Nevada is recognizing concealed carry permits from states like West Virginia and Ohio, but not Utah anymore.
Utah concealed carry instructor Steven Beckstead explained, "Utah does not require that you fire and qualify with the gun you're going to carry. Nevada now does."
He says Utahns can still have the gun in their car but not on their person in Nevada.
"Who knows when you're going to need it. It might be in the car, but most likely it's going to be out of the car," Beckstead said.
Other gun rights advocates say they're disappointed with this change, and many Utahns travel to or through Nevada on vacation.
