    Well, I can't understand why anyone thinks this is a good idea.

    Because like a Driver's license states should recognize a license from other States under the full faith and credit clause of the Constitution.

    For one thing it is a direct violation of the 10th amendment

    Actually the whole law thing is a direct violation of both the full faith and credit clause and the 2nd Amendment.

    just provides the Feds with the first step in taking over the permit process

    Nonsense! It says nothing about the Fed's, just that the States need live up to the full faith and credit clause.

    How you can say that it isn't getting the Feds more involved is beyond me.

    The nonsense of saying it is getting the Fed's involved is beyond me.

    Drivers license recognition has nothing to do with Federal laws or the full faith and credit clause. It is a voluntary agreement that the states have entered into. The acceptance of out-of-state DL is completely up to the states and the laws covering the license is not universal. The reporting of violations is voluntary and not all states are members of the agreement. To use drivers license as a comparision to CCW is completely wrong. As for the Feds getting involved you need to check out the CDL laws. That is completely controlled by the Feds and shortly after implementation they saw how screwed up it was and still is.

    Maybe I'm way off on this but I'm against the National carry. Everyone here that do have a carry permit are registered aat the state level. Do you really want to be registered at the Federal level? We're talking about nation wide ATF registration of every citizen that wants or does carry a weapon. Am I off on this? And why? Pesonally I think it's bad enough I'm registered at the Stte level.

    I don't believe that. All states recognize all other state driver's licenses.

    and the laws covering the license is not universal.

    The same is true of CCW's (you know that unconstitutional infringement on keeping and bearing arms).

    To use drivers license as a comparision to CCW is completely wrong.

    Only because the CCW is a license on a Constitutional right and the driver's license covers something that is not a Constitutional right.

    As for the Feds getting involved you need to check out the CDL laws. That is completely controlled by the Feds and shortly after implementation they saw how screwed up it was and still is.


    I don't have a clue what you are talking about. If you are saying "CDL" as a concealed carry license, the Fed's have nothing to do with them now and the proposal is only to require all states to recognize all other state's licenses as is true for Drivers Licenses.

    Not in any proposal that I've seen. The proposal's I've seen have only required each state to recognize every other state's license. There should be no requirement for a license infringing on the Right to keep and bear arms but until we get there, absolutely every license should be recognized everywhere else.

    I'd be willing to go along with it, as long as it would mean I could finally go anyplace in this great nation without having to worry about what local yokels have cooked up in respects to crazy gun laws and reciprocity or lack thereof.

    I don't believe that. All states recognize all other state driver's licenses.

    Nope. States for the most part will recognize license as long as they meet the same requirements such as age from another state but not 100%. Also there are many people who are banned from driving in one state but perfectly fine to drive in others. I have know this to happen plenty of times to some friends of mine.

    and the laws covering the license is not universal.

    The same is true of CCW's (you know that unconstitutional infringement on keeping and bearing arms).

    Only because the CCW is a license on a Constitutional right and the driver's license covers something that is not a Constitutional right.

    There are many people who will argue that point with you including the requirement of a DL is unconstitutional. The right to travel is not stated that I can recall right off hand but it is considered a right.

    As for the Feds getting involved you need to check out the CDL laws. That is completely controlled by the Feds and shortly after implementation they saw how screwed up it was and still is.

    Check into Commercial Drivers License which is controlled by the Feds. Also when you do note the term commercial is a misnomer but rather a type of vehicle whether or not it is commercial or private. A friend of mine had a van to transport his family of 12 children. It took him a while, several hoops and some changes on the law before he could drive it without a CDL.

    There in lies the problem. The bill doesn't change a single one of the local yokel crazy laws except that now your permit would be valid is states that issue permits. Still no good in DC or IL. Still no hollow points for defense in NJ. Best of all no requirement that they can't pass more local yokel laws to trip you up even more. I think they did get rid of the public gathering law in GA where a public gathering was two or more people meeting in public such as a shopping mall or store.

    Gee, that's interstate commerce is it not? Not simply a "drivers license". And of course it has noting to do with a carry permit.

    I'm yet to see any evidence that forcing all states to honor all carry permits puts the Fed's more into the firearms business than they already are. They already control handgun purchase.

    So we've got some people whining that the Fed's will get more involved and others whining they won't get more involved. Sounds like a great way to keep the insanity we have. We lost the 2nd Amendment a little piece at a time. We need to take it back the same way. And yes, I'd prefer a mandate that we actually follow the 2nd Amendment everywhere, but that's not going to happen especially when we have gun owners fighting over improvements.
