    1.) why? what does a state do that makes a drivers license national
    2.)it wouldn't be the national government it would simply be reciprocity laws that make sure other states recognize each others permits
    3.) this bill isnt about a fed permit

    maybe read the bill or even the two articles, that will help your confusion. This is backed by the NRA and is about making your current permit/license like a drivers license, recognized everywhere.

    I of course do and always have. I have stated this many times here over the years.
    Ayway there have been movements for this and bills etc and now they are trying again.

    John Cornyn: My bill treats gun carry permits like driver's licenses

    NRA Backs Senate's 2015 Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act - Katie Pavlich

    Please save any opinions on outlawing guns etc I'm just looking for views on this one aspect.

    These types of laws violate the constitution IMO and many have ruined peoples lives or come damn close. One story that comes to mine was a PA resident (a mother of two who had been robbed a couple times) that went to NJ for a kids birthday party. She was pulled over for a lane change violation and stated she had a gun in her purse and her carry permit. Being that NJ doesnt have reciprocity laws that recognize PA's carry permit she faced felony charges and 10 years in prison! Thats crap any way you slice it.

    This is something that needs fixed now. Its a shame that fighting against gun laws that violate rights isnt as easy as fighting against other unconstitutional laws because many of the gun laws make you a felon.
    Yes, without hesitation.

    Well if it's about reciprocity laws then each state would have to approve it. I figure that makes it a state by state issue.

    How about national constitutional carry instead?

    Color me "no".

    While I dont have a problem with CCW permits, I am a states rights fan on pretty much everything: marijuana, gay marriage (probably soon to be irrelevent via SCOTUS), driver licences and weapons permits. Though a state can voluntarily enter into a variety of reciprocity agreements with other states on a variety of permits, these agreements should by no means be mandatory.

    Since I'm against permits I don't see why I would support this.
