Been wondering about this since the article about the FL(?) pastor getting arrested in DC over 4th of July weekend for having his weapon with him....would a civil suit based on Full Faith and Credit be feasible against, DC, NYC, etc....force them to recognize concealed carry permits from out of state, just like they recognize a driver's license, as they are an official state issues document.

Flip side of this however is if it goes to SCOTUS and it is in our favor then gay rights groups could use as precedent for same sex marriage based on states that allow same sex marriage.

Drivers' licenses aren't recognized in other states via the full faith and credit clause. There is no Federal constitutional requirement for any State to recognize any other States' drivers licenses.

Drivers' licenses are voluntarily recognized through individual reciprocal agreements (just like CHLs) between the States and a compact between several of the States that was agreed to years ago.

It's a licensed activity. It's not a public act.
