If I purchase a handgun, can I carry it on my person?

The new constitutional concealed carry law took effect on August 1, 2017, which allows residents to carry a concealed weapon in North Dakota without a concealed weapon license if they meet certain requirements. It is only applicable within the state’s borders and only for ND residents who have a valid driver's license and are not otherwise prohibited from possessing or carrying a weapon. It is still necessary to have a concealed weapon license to carry concealed in states that have reciprocity with ND, including Minnesota, South Dakota and Montana. Reciprocity applies only if you possess a valid concealed weapon license. 

To learn more about these requirements, please visit the North Dakota Attorney General's website.
