No, it doesn't confuse me. But such a law will override a state's law about who they want to give a permit to. If a state requires range time, for instance, to get a permit, why should they be forced to accept a permit from a state that doesn't require range time?No, it merely means that a state can no longer refuse to recognize a permit merely because it was issued by another state. It's really quite simple.
So? If a state issued a permit, another state can't refuse to recognize it. Does that actually confuse you?
The argument about driver licenses is often brought up, but a national reciprocity carry law isn't the same as the voluntary agreement among states to accept the driver licenses from the other states. There is no federal mandate for states to accept the driver licenses of another state.
I'd be surprised if a national reciprocity law would even be found to be constitutional, even with a conservative court.
