What in the H*** are you people talking about? In one post you are saying that we should let the Federal Government make the rules for CCW and in the next post you are screaming that the federal government is going to take all our guns away! Leave the Feds out of it entirely. The states do not have standard rules for issue of the HCP, so there is a problem in recognizing each others' permits. That is something to work on at the state level.
The Federal Government does not force states to recognize each others' DLs, that came about through inter-state agreements. The Professional licenses are regulated through the Interstate Commerce Regs.
