    If we had a state-wide receprocity agreement with all states participating, then we wouldn't need a National Concealed Permit Recognition thing from the Gov't.
    How true!

    <rant>I'm a supporter of states rights, even if they don't pass the laws I like they have a right to decide for themselves individually. Ever since the War Between the States the answer to ever little problem has been "get the Federal Government involved." That's not what our Founding Fathers wanted for this country to become.</rant>

    First off, get the states all on the same page, and the feds can stay out of it. And getting all the states on the same page means breaking a few crybabies’ hearts -

    The reciprocity bill was absurd, not in its intent but in its timing – until you get all the states even vaguely resembling one another in terms of gun laws, such a bill could never be made equitable. In NY, we’ve got some of the toughest gun laws anywhere – when one of us manages to obtain a CCW, it’s the gold standard. Why should I be OK with any old yahoo from Vermont waltzing into my state with a gun he bought in a hardware store, and no permit?

    We need to make CCWs the weighty, valuable document they should be, and in all states.

    First, all states become “Shall Issue”. HOWEVER – every applicant (even the yahoo from Vermont) must not only pass the NICS, but he must complete substantial training in concealed carry and deployment of the weapon as well as marksmanship. (How about the state police making some serious cash by offering that training at their facilities? Charge $500 bucks and watch the eager applicants line up from the state capital all the way to the border with their 5 Ben Franklins clutched in their fists, ready to rock.)
    Further, all applicants must attend at least an 8 hour class covering the pertinent penal codes and specific articles of the code that deals with deadly force (the state codes, as I said, would have to be standardized). The applicants would have to demonstrate what they’ve learned by passing tests – written, dealing with the laws, and practical, dealing with real-time scenarios.

    You pass, you deserve a CCW, and by God you earned it.

    Just a side note - our Senator Schumer (whom I have no great love for, but anyway...) took major flack a short time ago for suggesting eye exams for permit holders. What the hell would be so bad about that? Why is it not OK to drive a car with impaired vision, but it’s OK for Mr. Magoo to have a CCW?
    Tie it to your driver’s license – if you get spot checked by an officer while your carrying, he asks for TWO documents, your permit AND your driver’s license. If the driver’s license says “corrective lenses” you damn better have them on if your armed. Very easy.

    Like I said, make all states Shall Issue, where everyone is eligible and has a reasonable shot at a CCW – but toughen the whole system up – make a CCW the gold standard it should be.

    We already HAVE a national CCW rule. It's called the 2nd amendment and our elitist, leftist elected officials have completely ignored it for a century. Attempting to enact another would be useless. It's up to the American people to force our imperial congress/White House to honor our existing constitutional rights along with the clearly expressed restraints on their own power.

    Similar to our driver’s license, I’d like to see a nationally mandated CCL agreement

    Just like driving laws, each state has their own, and the same can be said for firearms.

    But I would like to see it mandated that states have to accept each other’s CCL.

    It would mean that all states could stop issuing nonresident CCL. There would be no point since the state your traveling too, would be required to accept the one you have from your own state.

    I too, like others am nervous when the Fed gets involved. The program as you stated it sounds like it would work but I have a hard time believing the Fed would not want to eventually oversee the states. It would be a kind of foot in the door for them.

    I disagree. If the people from other states wanted their CCW requirements to be more like NY they would let their legislators know. If they didn't eventually get what they wanted, and felt very strongly about they have the option of moving to the state that has laws that they agree with. I am against control at national level. All states do not have the liscense requirement to operate a motor vehicle. I drive around states that do not have laws that allow me to carry in their state. I am happy to do so. I do not not vacation in states that will not allow me to carry. I would just about bet fear of losing tourist dollars comes into play with Florida's gun laws.

    Sounds like a way for the Govt., either state or fed to control the numbers of permits issued either through cost or rigged testing requirements. If this were the case "Shall Issue" might as well be "May Issue". Sounds OK in theory but "the gold standard it should be". Might just turn out to be "permits mainly for the rich or connected". I want minimal government involvement in these matters.

    Beware of that two-edge sword that can cut and gut your ox that gets gored: Gay Marriage may be great in weirdo states but we do not want it recognized in Ohio. National standard mandatory CCW laws can be changed by the deranged, so we will be alright with states rights and cooperation throughout the nation.

    Guess I missed the part of the 2nd amendment about the mandatory training and the eye exam. What about the family that can't afford $500 but wants to protect themselves?

    This idea is a double-edged sword and here's why. On the one hand, from the perspective of us here, it would be outstanding. One permit, good anywhere in the USA, no questions asked.

    The fundamental problem is that such an idea infringes on states' rights, i.e.... we're no longer the United States of America; we're now a consolidated federal monarchy, which is exactly what the Founding Fathers wanted to prevent.

    Now, if Texas, Alabama, or Tennessee make the rules, that would suit me just fine. But what if California or Massachusetts make the rules? Then we're screwed.

    See what I mean?

    Individual states' rights are an important part of the system of checks and balances within our free republic and it's a slippery slope to ever tamper with that.
