One area needs to be addressed on this subject.  There was a movement to establish a FEDERAL law, that would have required every state to honor any State Carry License or Permit.  Please look at the list showing the states that honor all other state Carry Licenses or Permits.  If more states would adopt this type of recognition, we don't have to let the Feds in our back pocket.  If a federal law is passed, it will not be long before the Feds require a tax on Carrying a weapon, or something that was not anticipated.  Let the states handle this area.
