As I said, there is no difference in crimes/accident rates in states WITH requirements and those with none.
Please see my signature: "Freedom doesnt mean safe, it means free." It's about encouraging people to be responsible for themselves, letting them suffer the consequences if they arent, and rewarding those that are. Not bring us all down to the lowest common denominator.

The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)
I believe constitutional carry should be be recognized in every single state as a matter of principle. I don't, however, want the federal government imposing furhter mandates on states. Although the resulting outcome would be nice, I am opposed to the process it would take to get there.
Just my opinion,

Marriage Licenses = All states recognizes other states licenses
No. Marriage can only be performed on that state's license. (i.e. TN requires TN Marriage license for TN Marriage.) Not all states even recognize each other's marriages (same sex, first cousins and underage are usually suspect.)
Driver's Licenses = All states recognizes other states licenses
No. There was not Federal enactments nor is there a Federal driver's License law. The Driver License Compact (DLC) was signed between 45 states of their own accord, recognizing each others drivers licenses. The other five states recognize the drivers license for a "drive through" or visit but not for an extended stay (period of limitation depends on states.)
CDL (Commercial Driver's License) = Recognized nationwide and tracked nationwide and by all states.
Yes. The Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1986 did place Federal standards on the state issued CDL. It is still not a Federal CDL but a state CDL must meet the Federal standards.
Vaccination/Health Records: Recognized by all states and universities to ensure public health & safety
These are medical records kept at State level, not a "license" so they are not germane to this issue. The only federal format used for this is the Immunization Record to be carried with your passport outside the U.S. but this is still filled out by your doctor or a state health agency.
So, the only true "precedent" above is the CDL. As this is tied to Interstate Commerce and the Highway Acts, it means it could be "selectively enforced"by numerous government agencies according to their own interpretations of their enforcement authority. If you haven't already noticed, anything tied to "Interstate Commerce" is not protected by the Constitution so far as the U.S. Supreme Court is concerned. Once you state "IC" every government agency out there ( including FBI, Treasury department and BATF) has a free shot at the regulations and how they are to be enforced.
Do you really want an open season on HCP/CWPs? I don't, so I still say: leave it to the states.
