    Leave it up to the states.

    If this is an actual proposal we need to get the message out pronto.

    This could be another ploy to gain complete control over the states again.

    I am not in favor of it at all. In fact, I am completely against it.

    Anything that the Fed Govt controls, and that includes your ability and manner to exercise your rights, the Fed Govt can and will either screw up or take away. Leave it as it is, as it should be, controlled by the states.

    A set of agreed-upon standards, done state-to-state, without Uncle.S getting involved. Those agreeing to the same basic standards would have general reciprocity, similar to a driving license.

    The last thing I'd want is the feds dipping a toe into these waters. They'll turn it into something else, if history's any teacher.

    At first I thought it was a grand idea but then I realized maybe not. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take it all away. I agree that it should be left up to the individual states.

    I like the idea, but I know that it would be written in a way to compromise states' rights and may make it easier to repeal later and do it in one fail swoop.

    Something like the driver's license compact would be ideal instead of needing multiple permits. The Feds (AFAIK) do not control the driving laws in each state, but could use the denial of Fed funds as a weapon against a state whose laws they don't agree with.
    I'm a little torn on it myself. I travel to NJ often and it sucks because I can't have my sidearm during the whole trip. But we know the Feds find ways to screw up things all the time.
    For the near future at least, incorporation of the 2A may put pressure on "may-issues" to start issuing permits to avoid lawsuits. You could see everyday Joes with 50 state carry with a wallet full of permits.

    It should be left in the hands of the States, we don't need the fed's gaining anymore power or control.

    I would support it if it was for Vermont style CCW laws.

    If a law were passed that simply said, "Every state will recognize every other states concealed carry permit", that would probably work. However we all know Washington wouldn't stop there. They would set standards that would make obtaining a permit almost impossible and I'm sure the fee would be outrageous.
    Morintp has a good point, if CCW didn't even require a permit, there would be no records, no fees, no requirements of anykind........gee, actual freedom.
